After a very long wait, everyone’s favorite intergalactic bounty hunter and his adorable child will be back. Disney and Lucasfilm have officially revealed that The Mandalorian season three will hit Disney+ on March 1, 2023. Mando (Pedro Pascal) and Grogu return a full two years after the season two finale, which saw the infant formerly known as Baby Yoda go off with Luke Skywalker to train in the Jedi ways. Luckily, they resolved all that in The Book of Boba Fett. Mando and Grogu will be together as they should be when season three begins.
They made the Mando announcement at the CCXP convention in Brazil, where Pedro Pascal took to the stage, with a sizzle reel for the third season. What will season three of Mando bring us? Earlier trailers saw a return to Mandalore, with a lot more Mandalorians in action, with all kinds of different (and super cool looking) armor. Katee Sackhoff returns as Bo Katan, who wants nothing more than to rule Mandalore herself. Unfortunately for her, Din Djarin has the Darksaber, so he’s the rightful heir. We sense a big fight coming. Luckily, Mando has an ace up his sleeve, in the form of a green Jedi baby in a floating bassinet.
At the panel, producer Jon Favreau said that seaon three’s scope is bigger than in previous seasons. It will contain more space battles, a lot more Mandalorians, and many more surprises. Will we see Ahsoka Tano return, before her own series arrives next year? And what about Moff Gideon? He is definitely still out there, even if our heroes captured him, and put him in prison. We don’t expect him to rot behind bars for long, as Giancarlo Esposito has confirmed that he’s coming back as well. All will be made clear when The Mandalorian season three premieres next March on Disney+.
