The story of Mando and Baby Yoda goes in a new direction for the third season of The Mandalorian
The Mandalorian season 3 can’t come soon enough Yes, the season two finale just fell on Disney Plus, but we’re already waiting for more episodes of the Star Wars series
Season two ended in a spectacular and very surprising way – with a dazzling cameo and a new Mandalorian spin-off revealed in the credits ending raises a ton of questions about The Mandalorian’s season three and the future of its main characters, the Bounty Hunter and the Force-wielding Grogu (also known as Baby Yoda)
In “Chapter 16: The Rescue”, Mando / Din Djarin successfully took Grogu back from the clutches of the evil Moff Gideon. He got help from Bo-Katan Kryze and Kosta Reeves, but their team faced doom against the mighty Dark Troopers
Yes, Luke (played by Mark Hamill, aged by CGI) arrived in an X-wing, climbed aboard the ship and destroyed the Dark Troopers with his lightsaber and the Force Then he faced Grogu and Mando before the latter encouraged them his adopted son gently to go with the Jedi But before they parted, Din took off his helmet to tenderly say goodbye (sob)
So the bounty hunter father and his keeper are on different paths. What now? Here’s what we know about the third season of The Mandalorian
On Disney Investor Day, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said that “the next chapter of The Mandalorian” would arrive at that time
In the season two finale, however, a scene was played in which Boba Fett and Fennec Shand took over the old syndicate headquarters from Jabba the Hutt, followed by a title card announcing the split Boba Fett’s book will be published in December 2021
Could Boba Fett’s book be “the next chapter” that Kennedy mentions? Or is it a separate show that debuts alongside the third season of The Mandalorian in December?
We suspect the latter. In November, Deadline reported that Season 3 “has been in preproduction for months Creator, director and executive producer Jon Favreau publicly stated he hoped to begin filming by late 2020. “The report also noted that” will be filming a Boba Fett miniseries first starting next week or later this month would be followed by the production of the third season of The Mandalorian “
We can envision a four-episode book by Boba Fett that premieres in early December and ends at the start of season three of The Mandalorian So much bounty hunting goodness on Disney Plus!
The cast of the third season of The Mandalorian is almost certainly led by Pedro Pascal as the title character Din Djarin. Pascal approaches Mando and portrays him without a helmet, while a double actor takes on the full suit
With Grogu going out training with Luke, it’s unclear whether the doll will be out next season, but we’ll likely see Gina Carano as Cara Duke and Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, Giancarlo Epositos Moff Gideon wasn’t killed in the season two finale and could continue to pose a threat
With Mando now in possession of the Dark Saber, he could be involved in the war for Mandalore, which could mean the return of Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan Kryze and Mercedes Varnado as Kosta Reeves
Other cast members who may reappear include Amy Sedaris as Peli Motto, Bill Burr as Migs Mayfeld, Horatio Sanz as Mythrol, and Emily Swallow as The Armorer
There may be crossovers with the spin-offs of The Mandalorian For the book by Boba Fett, this is Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett and Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand For Star Wars: Ahsoka, this is Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano
By the time The Mandalorian checks in at Baby Yoda, there may be more Mark Hamill cameos than Luke Skywalker and let’s not forget that a young Ben Solo (later Kylo Ren) is around four years old at this point
Season 2 Mandalorian Finale Opened a Giant Can of Sandworms The Mandalorian’s first two seasons revolved around Baby Yoda and now it’s off to train with Luke The show and the title character are facing an existential crisis
Will Mando return to bounty hunting? Settling on Navarro to watch the planet with Cara and Greef? Or will he take full possession of the Dark Saber and interfere in the battle to free Mandalore?
If it’s the latter, Bo-Katan may not be entirely happy about it. She asked for his help, but more than her subordinate / foot soldier, Bo-Katan, desires this Dark Saber – but she wants it so badly that she’s up with Din Djarin duel?
Din has shown no interest in intergalactic politics, so we are curious to see if (and how) he will be drawn into the larger Mandalorian saga
