Season 3 will likely continue Mando’s mission toward setting the child with the Jedi-all while battling the escalating military force of Moff Gideon. This question isn’t whether or not Disney+ is interested in a third season of the show. It’s already been in the works, well before season 2 even aired. “Sources close to the production have confirmed that creator Jon Favreau has been ‘writing season 3 for a while’, and that art department, led by Lucasfilm vice-president and executive creative director Doug Chiang, has been creating concepts for season 3 for the past few weeks,” variety reported back in April.
The Mandalorian Season 3 Release Date,| Cast, Plot, Trailer & More Updates
Since none of Marvel shows have gotten off the ground yet – Wanda Vision will be the first, and that doesn’t premiere until December -this is Disney+ flagship TV series. Of course, they would want to keep it going. Plus, who would deprive that world of more Baby Yoda? (We suppose the guy in the suit who travels around with Baby Yoda has his fans, too).
The Mandalorian Season 3 Release Date
It looks like season 3 of Mandalorian will just make it under the wire in arriving in 2021. At today’s Disney investor Day presentation, Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy announced that the release date for the Mandalorian season 3 will arrive at Christmas 2021. That means the new season will spill over into early 2022, but it’s good to know we will be getting new episodes about a year after season 2 concludes.
The Mandalorian Season 3 cast
So far we know for certain that Pedro Pascal will play the lead role once again (presumably with help from stunt double Brendan Wayne, the grandson of the legendary actor John Wayne). And of course, he will be joined by Baby Yoda (not gonna call him Grogu, can’t make us), another star of considerable repute.
But who will join the unlikely pair in season 3? Here is a list of likely contenders —
- Cara Dune as (Gina Carano)
- Greef Karga as (Carl Weathers)
- Moff Gideon as (Giancarlo Esposito)
- Fennec Shand as (Ming-Na Wen)
- Boba Fett as (Temuera Morrison)
- Ahsoka Tano as (Rosario Dawson)
- Bo-Katan as (Katee Sackhoff)
Now that the Mandalorian is building more connections with a galaxy far, far away, don’t be surprised if more guest stars appear in season 3, particularly those familiar with the force. Our money’s on one of those fish nuns from The Last Jedi.
The Mandalorian Season 3 Plot
We expect the plot of the Mandalorian season 3 will largely depend on what exactly happens in the season 2 finale, due to be released on Disney+ next week.
The show has been building up to a confrontation between Mando and his imperial rival Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito), with the outcome of that battle sure to have lasting ramifications.
Will Gideon make it out alive? Could an even more malevolent force supplant him? Whatever happens, it is safe to assume that the internet’s beloved Baby Yoda – now known as Grogu – will remain a key figure, as his abilities with the force continue to be an area of great interest.
The Mandalorian Season 3 Storyline
In an interview, the actor Giancarlo Esposito hinted at what’s next in the Mandalorian season 3. “We are living in a huge universe and that has so much to explore. So I think this show is going to start to lay the groundwork for the depth and breadth that is going to come in season 3 and season 4, where you have gonna start to get answers”.
This statement clarifies that there is so much to come in the series and there are going to be various unexpected moments. More bug spin-offs are on their way. Also, they may connect to the main show anyhow. Season 3 may set both of them up directly.
The Mandalorian Season 3 Trailer
It would be too early to say anything for a teaser or a trailer for season 3. As of now, more than 12 months are left for its release. However, we can expect a promo or by mid-2021.
Till then, sit back, relax, and watch all the episodes of the Mandalorian and Star Wars too if you have not yet. You can watch The Mandalorian season 1 and 2 on Disney+.
The Mandalorian Season 3: How many episodes will be there in season 3?
As of now, both seasons have 8 episodes each which means 16 chapters. We expect that the new season would also get 8 episodes and would continue from chapter 17-24.
