Disney has announced The Mandalorian Season 3, and it will be the most ambitious show that they have ever created. The third season of The Mandalorian will see an all-star cast including Gina Carano (Deadpool), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), and Carl Weathers (Rocky). The plot synopsis for this upcoming season is still unknown, but we do know that this new season will take place after Revenge of the Sith and before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The filming usually takes 3-4 months, and the lavish post-production will take another 6 to 8 months. Furthermore, we already know that the season will come after the Boba Fett spinoff. All things considered, we hope ‘The Mandalorian’ season 3 to premiere sometime in early 2022.
The Mandalorian Season 3 Cast: Who can be in it?
All of the leading cast members will reprise their roles in the forthcoming season in all likelihood. Barring some bitter developments. Pedro Pascal will take up the titular role of Din Djarin AKA Mando, the Mandalorian bounty hunter, with or without the helmet. Among other recurring cast members, we may see Carl Weathers (Greef Karga), Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon), Amy Sedaris (Peli Motto), Bill Burr (Migs Mayfield), Emily Swallow (The Armorer), and Horatio Sanz (Mythrol).
If Mando gets involved in the war for Mandalore in season 3, Katee Sackhoff and Mercedes Varnado may reprise the characters of Bo-Katan Kryze and Kosta Reeves, respectively. In addition, Temuera Morrison (Boba Fett), Ming-Na Wen (Fennec Shand), and Rosario Dawson (Ahsoka Tano) may appear in the third season, although probably not in prominent roles, since their characters have their own spinoff shows. Moreover, Mark Hamill may have some screen time in the role of Luke Skywalker, the son of Anakin Skywalker.
The Mandalorian Season 3 Plot: What can it be About?
The finale of season 2 neatly resolves the story of Grogu, opening avenues for further explorations in the timeline. The season sees an interesting development of the titular character as he learns to put his feelings above the fanatical Mandalorian code. Mando rightfully acquires the dark saber, which would not be received too well by Bo-Katan. The OG Mandalorian Boba Fett makes his appearance in the season before kick-starting his own show. Before that, the final chapter of the second season sees Mando out on a rescue mission to save Grogu from Moff Gideon.
The Mandalorian finds the coordinates of Gideon’s imperial ship and sneaks in to rescue Baby Yoda, teaming up with Bo-Katan, Koska, Fennec, and Dune. Mando rushes to save Grogu while the others create a distraction by fighting off the stormtroopers. After a valorous fight with deceitful Gideon, Mando becomes the rightful owner of the dark saber. In the finality of events, Gideon is defeated, and Grogu departs with Skywalker for training after a heart-rending farewell with Mando.
The somewhat conclusive ending of the second season puts a dent in further speculations on the development of the plot along the line of Grog. With Baby Yoda gone with Luke Skywalker, the force does not seem too strong for the third season. However, there are several story arcs that the creator can explore further. Maybe Mando will return to Bounty hunting, or perhaps he will team up with Cara Dune and Greef Karga to defend the planet. Now that Mando has the dark saber, maybe he will embark upon a greater journey to attain the freedom of Mandalore. Rest assured, fans can expect season 3 to be as spectacular and atmospheric as the earlier seasons.
