The Mandalorian Season 3 has officially been greenlit by Lucasfilm and will be coming to Disney Plus, but when will its release date on the streaming platform be? This is something that fans of the show are desperate to know, so we think that it’s time to do a bit of digging on that matter.
The Mandalorian Season 3 will easily be on the main TV events in 2022, and were are sure that many fans of the show, us included, are desperate to know when its Disney Plus release date will be. There are still many questions about the upcoming series of the hit Star Wars Disney Plus show.
When will The Mandalorian Season 3 be released? How many episodes will it be? What will happen in it? Who will be in the third season of this awesome new Star Wars show? These are all questions I will try and answer in this article. It also seems as though The Book Of Boba Fett gave us a little bit of a taste of what’s to come in The Mandalorian Season 3.
Is The Mandalorian Season 3 happening on Disney Plus
OK, so let’s get onto the first question that I’m sure all of you will want to be answered. Is The Mandalorian Season 3 actually happening on Disney Plus? The answer to that question is actually pretty easy: yes. They actually wrapped up filming on The Mandalorian Season 3 a few weeks back.
When will The Mandalorian Season 3’s release date on Disney Plus be?
So, with the knowledge that The Mandalorian Season 3 is not only happening but has been shot already, we then come to the question of when will the season be released on Disney Plus. This isn’t an easy question to answer because Lucasfilm and Disney Plus like to hold their cards close to their chests as far as release dates are concerned.
So, there’s no official release date, but we do know that the show will start airing in 2022. We’ve been informed that The Mandalorian Season 3 will be released towards the end of the year, and episodes of the new season could be released in 2023.
Therefore, we can estimate that The Mandalorian Season 3 will be released in December and new episodes will carry on dropping on Disney Plus in January 2023. We also know that the third season of The Mandalorian began development in late April 2020, and it was officially confirmed in December 2020. It was then revealed that filming on the third season began in October 2021 and ended in March 2022
What could happen in Season 3?
As I mentioned above, I think that the latest episode of The Book Of Boba Fett revealed what The Mandalorian Season 3 would be about. It seems as though the third season of the Star Wars show will focus on Din Djarin’s journey to becoming the true leader of Mandalore.
It looks like he’s also going to try and reconnect with Grogu. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Grogu and Mando working together again to help re-establish the Mandalorian race. There are Mandalorians all over the galaxy, but they are divided and constantly at war with one another. Din will go back to what remains of Mandalore and will try and make up for having removed his helmet in The Mandalorian Season 2.
I also think that Katee Sackhoff’s Bo-Katan Kryze will have something to do with this third season. It wouldn’t surprise me to see the end of The Mandalorian Season 3 tease the beginning of Bo-Katan’s own spinoff show. I also wonder whether we’ll get to see more of Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka Tano and maybe even get our first glimpse of Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Who will star in Season 3?
As for the cast of The Mandalorian Season 3, the actors who are definitely coming are Pedro Pascal as Din Djarin, Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon and Carl Weathers as Greef Karga. There are no other confirmed actors for Season 3. However, as I mentioned above, I’m pretty certain that Katee Sackhoff will be back as Bo-Katan.
I also wouldn’t be surprised to see Rosario Dawson back as Ahsoka in Season 3. We know Gina Carano won’t be coming back for Season 3 as Cara Dune. Disney fired Carano after a series of controversial posts she made on social media. We also recently found out that Christopher Lloyd had been cast in The Mandalorian Season 3.
Jon Favreau will be serving as showrunner.
