After “The Mandalorian” aired its last episode of the second season with an epic finale, the fans already wait for a season renewal. The finale featured a fierce duel, intense battles, a legendary return, and little breadcrumbs of hints about what’s coming next. We don’t know much about a third season, except the fact that there will be one. But we’ve tried collecting all the trails and listed them below. So, tune in!
Rewinding by a few days and taking you to the Disney Investors Day. Amidst a wave of announcements, Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy also announced that the next chapter in the story of The Mandalorian would be coming around Christmas 2021. But she didn’t specify whether she was talking about The Mandalorian season 3 or some other project. In addition, while she discussed the project, an image of Boba Fett was in the background. But hold on, before making any assumptions right now, let us take you through a few more hints.
With the end of season 2, the viewers have got some hope about the show’s renewal. The post-credits sequence of The Mandalorian season 2 makes it clear that the next chapter in the Star Wars TV universe will be a spin-off called The Book of Boba Fett that would focus on the titular bounty hunter who was reintroduced in the second season of the show.
Now, taking you through the interviews and statements.
On being asked about the show, Favreau said the show could be conveniently filmed during the pandemic as they’re in very small situations, and most of the time, the show has a lot of characters in masks. Most of the work and sequences involve a lot of digital work that augments things. So the show is probably well-equipped and is flexible enough to follow all the protocols that are emerging surrounding the restart of work. He further mentioned that “The Mandalorian” season 3 started production back in April, right after the coronavirus pandemic hit in the United States. Preproduction started in the spring.
Giancarlo Esposito, starring in “The Mandalorian,” said in an interview that season 2 had added enough depth to the storyline that will be explored in season 3. He further says that we’re living in a universe that is huge, and there’s so much to explore, so he thinks this show is going to lay the groundwork for the depth and breadth that’s gonna come in Season Three and Season Four, where you’re really gonna start to get answers.
Favreau even told in his statement that the show would take an approach similar to “Game of Thrones” by adding more characters and a larger story. The new season will be all about introducing a larger story in the star wars world. The stories would be less isolated, but each episode will have its own flavor. They are hopeful of bringing a lot more scope to the show.
The team believes that as they introduce other characters, they would have enough opportunities to follow different storylines. They are hopeful of creating their project captivating enough like ‘Game of Thrones’ where the evolution of different characters followed different storylines that are very appealing to the audience member. Dave Filoni says that with the coming season, everything gets bigger, the bars are set higher. The team would be working to show the personal story between the Child and the Mandalorian in a way, and people will enjoy it.
So keeping in mind the points and statements, we’re hopeful that the show will hit the screens by December 2021. Let’s hope for a merrier Christmas next year.
