Do you like Star Wars? Here is some good news: Mandalorian season 3 is already in the works. While Disney + has yet to announce an exact start date for Mandalorian season 2 – scheduled for October of this year – creator, showrunner and executive producer Jon Favreau has “written season 3 for a while” and the department artistic has been creating concepts “for the last few weeks”. But with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic imposing a pause on film productions globally, it’s unclear when season 3 of The Mandalorian can go into production. Even if they are ready for it.
Variety reports the potential renewal of The Mandalorian for season 3, claiming that two people familiar with the matter told him that the first Star Wars live action series started pre-production on April 20 the following season. If you’re wondering why Disney-owned Lucasfilm is working on season 3 of The Mandalorian six months before season 2 starts, it’s why they need “such a big turnaround time” to deliver what it costs $ 15 million to episode, on par with the last seasons of the mega hit of the fantasy series HBO Game of Thrones.
It is not known what to expect from The Mandalorian season 3, since we know little about season 2 in the first place. At the end of season 1, Mando (Pedro Pascal) was tasked with discovering the origins of Baby Yoda – or the Baby, as it is officially called – and reuniting it with its genre, which means a search for his home planet. Additionally, Rosario Dawson will appear as an apprentice to Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Behind the scenes, Dave Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa, actor Carl Weathers and Favreau are the directors.
Mandalorian season 3 is likely to be released in 2021. Season 2 will hit Disney + Hotstar in October. It should not be delayed by the pandemic, as it finished filming in early March.
