The Mandalorian - Season 3 NEW!

The third season of the American television series The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal as the title character, a bounty hunter traveling to Mandalore to redeem his past transgressions with his adopted son Grogu and being aided on their journey by fellow Mandalorian Bo-Katan Kryze. It is part of the Star Wars franchise, set after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983). The season is produced by Lucasfilm, Fairview Entertainment, and Golem Creations, with Jon Favreau serving as showrunner.

The Mandalorian - Season 3

By late April 2020, The Mandalorian creator and showrunner Jon Favreau had been writing a third season for "a while" and further development on the season was beginning.[18] That September, co-star Giancarlo Esposito said the second season would "start to lay the groundwork for the depth and breadth that's going to come in season 3 and season 4, where you're really gonna start to get answers."[19] After the second-season finale announced The Book of Boba Fett for December 2021, commentators speculated that the third season would be shifting focus from Din Djarin, The Mandalorian, to Boba Fett. Favreau soon clarified that The Book of Boba Fett was a separate spin-off series that was already in production in December 2020, with the third season of The Mandalorian again focusing on Djarin. He added that the third season was in pre-production, and filming would begin in 2021.[5] Bryce Dallas Howard,[20] Rick Famuyiwa,[21] and co-star Carl Weathers all directed episodes after doing so for previous seasons,[10] with Famuyiwa also being promoted to executive producer.[21] Lee Isaac Chung, Peter Ramsey, and Rachel Morrison all directed episodes of the season.[22]

Favreau wrote all eight episodes of the season, working with Noah Kloor on the third and Dave Filoni on the fourth and seventh episodes.[4][23] The season picks up after the events of The Book of Boba Fett (2021), with the Mandalorian and Grogu traveling to Mandalore so Din Djarin can redeem himself for his transgressions of removing his helmet.[9][24] Discussing the absence of Cara Dune in the season following the firing of actress Gina Carano, Famuyiwa said the character was still "a big part... of the world" and that Favreau took the time to address her absence. However, the creatives knew "the heart of the show" was Din Djarin and Grogu with Filoni stating the season was "mainly dealing with Mandalorians and the Mandalorian saga, the Mandalorian tale", and how that affects the duo's story.[25]

Pedro Pascal stars in the series as The Mandalorian.[5] The Mandalorian is also portrayed by stunt doubles Brendan Wayne and Lateef Crowder, with Wayne and Crowder receiving co-star credit for the first time in the third season.[6][7] In November 2020, Esposito said he expected to be featured more prominently in the third season than previous ones.[26] Also returning are Carl Weathers as Greef Karga,[10] Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan Kryze,[8] Emily Swallow as The Armorer,[9] Amy Sedaris as Peli Motto,[27] and Omid Abtahi as Penn Pershing.[13] Katy O'Brian co-stars as Elia Kane, reprising the role from the second season,[11] while Ahmed Best co-stars as Jedi Master Kelleran Beq; Best originated the role on the children's game show Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge.[14] Paul Sun-Hyung Lee also reprises his role as Carson Teva.[9] In March 2022, Christopher Lloyd was revealed to be a guest star for the season,[17] and in May 2022 it was revealed that Tim Meadows would appear in the season,[9] as New Republic Colonel Tuttle.[15]

Also starring in the season are Tait Fletcher as the Mandalorian Paz Vizsla (voiced by Favreau),[28] Temuera Morrison reprising his role as the voice of clone troopers,[29] Steve Blum reprising his role as the voice of Rebels character Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios, and directors Deborah Chow, Rick Famuyiwa, and Dave Filoni reprising their roles as New Republic pilots Sash Ketter, Jib Dodger, and Trapper Wolf, respectively.[15]

Filming for the season began by October 13, 2021,[30] with David Klein serving as the cinematographer.[31] It had previously been expected to begin once filming for The Book of Boba Fett completed in June 2021,[5][32] but was unable to then because Obi-Wan Kenobi was using the Los Angeles soundstages.[32] Esposito noted that the production did not need to wait for Pascal to complete filming the HBO series The Last of Us since the Mandalorian is primarily seen with his helmet on.[16] Regarding filming the season during the COVID-19 pandemic, Favreau felt The Mandalorian was in an advantageous situation since many characters are in masks and the series employs "a lot of digital work that augments things", allowing the production to be flexible to adhere to filming protocols.[33] Filming wrapped on March 29, 2022.[34] Reshoots occurred in early July 2022.[35]

In February 2023, Joseph Shirley was revealed to be composing the score for the season, replacing Ludwig Göransson. Shirley previously provided additional music for the first two seasons and used Göransson's themes to compose the score for The Book of Boba Fett.[36] A soundtrack featuring selections from the first four episodes of the season was released digitally by Walt Disney Records on March 29, 2023.[37]

Filoni, Favreau, and Sackhoff promoted the season at Lucasfilm's Star Wars Celebration panel on May 26, 2022, revealing the first teaser to those in attendance.[8] They returned for a panel on The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett on May 28 along with Pascal, Esposito, and Weathers, where more footage from the season was shown.[38][21] Filoni, Favreau, and cast members promoted the season at the 2022 D23 Expo, while also debuting a trailer.[12][39] A second trailer for the season was released on January 16, 2023, during Monday Night Football. The trailer had 83.5 million global views in its first 24 hours, becoming the most viewed trailer in that time period for a Star Wars Disney+ series; surpassing Obi-Wan Kenobi (58 million views).[40]

"The Mandalorian" season 3 premiere is only days away. It's been over two years since season 2 wrapped up and a year since little Grogu was reunited with his Papa Mando (Pedro Pascal) in the final episodes of "The Book of Boba Fett." Why they chose to put such a powerful moment in a show that isn't "The Mandalorian" is a question I'd like answered, but here we are.

The clan of two is together again, and as we've seen from the trailers, they're off on further adventures. We know from a recently released clip that Din Djarin pays a visit to the former leader of the Bounty Hunters Guild, now-Magistrate of Nevarro, Greef Karga (Carl Weathers), who offers him a parcel of land, which he turns down. We know that Grogu really likes little orange candies and spinning in a giant chair. We know that Din has to head back to Mandalore to lift his apostate status after removing his helmet. We will see Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff) again and Peli Motto (Amy Sedaris). That said, there are still a lot of questions that remain unanswered after season 2 and the "Boba Fett" episodes that could be considered season 2.5. Here are the ones we want to learn the answers to the most.

At the end of the second season, Din and Grogu part ways (my entire heart is breaking just thinking about it). A young version of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) shows up to take Grogu for Jedi training, which, considering the lifespan of the little dude's species, means they'd likely never have seen each other again. Of course, during the final episodes of "The Book of Boba Fett," we learned that Grogu chose to return to his Papa instead of continuing as a Padawan.

The rescue was teased in both earlier episodes and the season 3 trailer, leading me to think at least part of this mystery will be solved this season. I certainly hope so. If it is, what could that change for Grogu? He appears to have blocked the memory from himself or been unconscious at the time. Could that lead us to another cameo? Could it introduce a character we haven't met yet? Will the answer lead him back to Jedi training eventually or cement his decision to follow Din on adventures?

There may be other familiar characters, though. Mando pretty much took over the final three episodes of "The Book of Boba Fett," and it would hardly be a shock to see Boba (Temuera Morrison) or Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen). They both showed up in seasons 1 and 2 of "The Mandalorian" before their own show, so they could absolutely pop up here.

Moff lost the saber to Din Djarin, and Bo-Katan likely wants it back in the right way (in her mind and "Mandalorian" lore, at least). That means we'll probably see a battle between them so she can win it fair and square. Does he have to die? Will he fight her? Where is Moff in all this, because we know he's alive and will be back this season. What does it all mean for Mandalore's future?

That's where he's headed, according to the trailer for season 3. We can see a shot of him removing a buried Mandalorian helmet and a shot of the ruined planet. He wasn't born there, so he'll discover it with us, but will he be forgiven? After all, not all Mandalorians adhere to rules like this. Bo-Katan doesn't, and we know we're going to see a number of others, going by the helmets in the trailers.

In a recent interview, "The Mandalorian" creator Jon Favreau revealed that he's already got season 4 written. He said that part of the reason was the interconnectedness of this show with the upcoming "Ahsoka" series starring Rosario Dawson. That certainly could leave the possibility open for her to return in "The Mandalorian" season 3. She might show up to help out with Grogu's further training or to reveal her thoughts on him leaving Luke Skywalker. Perhaps we'll even get to meet Sabine Wren as I mentioned, or even Ezra Bridger, who will be played by Eman Esfandi in "Ahsoka."

We met Ahsoka (originally voiced by Ashley Eckstein) in the animated series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" (and the film that comprised the first episodes). When she appeared in "The Mandalorian," we saw her battle Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto) to get the whereabouts of Grand Admiral Thrawn. Will he figure into season 3 at all? Will we get a glimpse of her hunt for him? There are only eight episodes on the way right now, and so many queries to address! 041b061a72
