Mandalorian Season 3 Release Date: The Mandalorian is a Netflix original space western series created by Jon Favreau for the Disney+ streaming service. It is the Star Wars franchise’s first live-action series, set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi. It stars Pedro Pascal as the main character, a lone bounty hunter paid to recover “The Child,” who goes on the run.
By 2009, George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, had begun planning a live-action Star Wars television series, but the idea was deemed too costly to produce. In October 2012, he sold Lucasfilm to Disney.
Following that, work on a new Star Wars series for Disney+ began. Favreau joined the show as a writer and showrunner in March 2018. Along with Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson, he serves as executive producer.
The series’ title was revealed in October 2018, and filming began in California’s Manhattan Beach Studios. The StageCraft technology for the series was created by visual effects studio Industrial Light & Magic, which used virtual sets and a 360-degree video wall to construct the series’ locations. Other films and television projects have now followed suit.
Mandalorian Season 3 Plot
The Mandalorian Season 3 rumors have been debunked. The main Star Wars series on Disney+ ended in December 2020, but the story was continued in The Book of Boba Fett, a spinoff series. The dynamic duo of Din Djarin and Grogu played key supporting roles in The Book of Boba Fett, laying the groundwork for the upcoming Mandalorian season 3.
The pair were reunited in The Book of Boba Fett after Grogu chose Din over his Jedi training with Luke.
Following the dramatic season 2 finale, The Mandalorian’s third season will mark a huge shift in the overarching plot. Din and Grogu’s days of wandering the galaxy in search of Jedi and colliding with Imperial forces are long gone.
Now that his foundling has been reunited with other Force users, the bounty hunter has some alone time to evaluate his options. For the time being, he’ll either split up with Bo-Katan and Cara Dune, reverting to a life similar to when he met The Child, or he’ll try to find a way to rejoin Grogu in some way.
Moff Gideon has also been captured after a battle with Din. Without his trusty Darksaber and Imperial soldiers behind him, he has nowhere to turn… or so it looks at the time. Gideon is no slouch, and he most definitely planned his entire abduction and is now formulating a method to avoid his captors and exact his vengeance as quickly as possible.
Bo-quest Katan is about to take an unforeseen turn due to a major miscalculation made by Din in “Chapter 16: The Rescue.” After disarming Gideon, he is the rightful owner of the Darksaber and, by proxy, the rightful ruler of Mandalore.
Because it was Bo-Katan who sought the ancient weapon in the first place, she’ll have to make a difficult choice in the next episodes. Will she fight Din for the Darksaber, or will she find a different way to bring her people together? When The Mandalorian arrives in less than a year, we’ll have to wait and see.
Mandalorian Season 3 Cast
The Mandalorian season 3 cast is far from carbonite at this early stage. Pedro Pascal will reprise his role as Din Djarin, and Grogu will rejoin him. There were concerns that filming on Pascal’s other new show, The Last of Us TV series, might take priority over The Mandalorian season 3 and cause a delay, but work has since begun.
Moff Gideon actor Giancarlo Esposito also said during an interview with EW that Gideon will likely have more of a presence in the third installment: “Next season, I believe you’ll see more of me. Moff Gideon will almost certainly appear frequently.” How foreboding…
Carl Weathers will reprise his role as Greef Karga and will also direct the film, as he announced at Steel City Con. After the conclusion of The Mandalorian season 2, we can expect Katee Sackhoff to reprise her role as Bo-Katan, especially now that the Darksaber is in Din’s hands.
Ahsoka Tano, played by Rosario Dawson, could return, however she has an impending spin-off and her position following her cameo in The Book of Boba Fett is unclear.
Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) has also joined the cast in a mysterious role.
Meanwhile, Mercedes Varnado, aka Sasha Banks, has confirmed that she will not be reprising her role as Koska Reeves in season 3.
Gina Carano’s Cara Dune is another character that will not be seen in the series. She was widely assumed to be one of the primary protagonists in the upcoming Rangers of the New Republic spin-off.
However, LucasFilm has dissolved all connections with Carano following her social media activities. As a result, she will not appear in Season 3 of The Mandalorian, and the spin-off series Rangers of the New Republic has apparently been canceled.
Mandalorian Season 3 Release Date
On November 12, 2019, The Mandalorian debuted alongside the introduction of Disney+. The first season’s eight episodes received excellent reviews and were nominated for Outstanding Drama Series at the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, as well as winning seven Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
Mandalorian Season 2 premiered on October 30, 2020, to generally excellent reviews, and The Mandalorian Season 3 is expected to debut in December 2022. The Book of Boba Fett and Ahsoka will be two spin-off stories that will build on the timeline of the main series.
Season 3 of The Mandalorian is expected to premiere on Disney Plus later this year. We’ve got the dirt on the next season to keep you over as we wait for that elusive release date to be announced.
That includes everything from new and returning cast members to plot details and our best guess as to when we’ll see a trailer. We also have remarks from executive producer Dave Filoni and Moff Gideon actor Giancarlo Esposito — and that’s only the beginning.
