It may be a while until we see more of Din Djarin and Baby Yoda on The Mandalorian, but there’s enough material available to tide us over until the third season premieres. A trailer has been released, giving fans a taste of what’s to come with glimpses of live-action Mandalore and the return of fan-favorite character Babu Frik, among other things (or his species, anyway). Now is the best time to catch up on everything you missed in season 2 of The Mandalorian before the new episodes return in February 2023.
The Mandalorian Season 3 Release Date Is February 2023
At the Star Wars Celebration, the release date for Season 3 of The Mandalorian was announced to be February 2023. We don’t know the exact date, but if Disney Plus follows its usual release schedule, it will be on either a Wednesday (the most likely day) or a Friday. If so, we wouldn’t expect it before February 1, and it certainly wouldn’t arrive after February 24.
The Mandalorian Season 3 Cast
The cast of The Mandalorian season 3 is not yet cast in carbonite, but it doesn’t mean anything at this point. In addition to Pedro Pascal’s eventual comeback as Din Djarin, the character of Grogu will also be rejoining the cast. There had been concerns that filming for The Mandalorian season 3 might be stalled because of Pascal’s other new show, The Last of Us TV series, but as we can now see, work has begun.
Actor Giancarlo Esposito, who plays Moff Gideon, has confirmed in an interview with EW(opens in new tab) that the character will have a larger role in the third film. “I feel that next season you’ll get to know me better. The chances are high that Moff Gideon will frequently be in your life.” How foreboding…

During an appearance at Steel City Con, Carl Weathers confirmed that he would reprise his role as Greef Karga and direct the sequel. Since the conclusion of Season 2 of The Mandalorian. With the Darksaber now in Din’s possession, Katee Sackhoff’s Bo-Katan will probably have her sights set on it. Ahsoka, played by Rosario Dawson, might return, albeit her future following her cameo in The Book of Boba Fett is uncertain, and she also has a spin-off in the works.
Christopher Lloyd, known for his part in Back to the Future, has also reportedly joined the cast.
Mercedes Varnado, aka Sasha Banks, has stated she will not reprise her role as Koska Reeves for the upcoming third season.
There’s also Gina Carano’s Cara Dune, who won’t be showing up. She was expected to play a significant role in the Rangers of the New Republic spinoff. Nonetheless, Carano’s social media posts have led to LucasFilm severing all relations with her. As a result, she won’t be returning for The Mandalorian’s third season, and the Rangers of the New Republic spinoff has apparently been axed.
But what about Bill Burr’s Migs Mayfield? The actor told Screen Rant (opens in new tab) about season 3 and commented: “Yeah, I’m hoping it happens. Thanks to Jon Favreau and Rick Famuyiwa, the writers of both of the episodes I worked on, I was able to contribute to an undertaking of epic proportions and high artistic quality that has touched the lives of many individuals. I can’t say much, but I will say that I enjoy my time on the show immensely and would like to see it continue.”
Regarding returning filmmakers, Bryce Dallas Howard is at the helm once again for an episode. As a director, she has worked on two episodes of The Mandalorian and the acclaimed “Return of the Mandalorian” chapter in The Book of Boba Fett.
The Mandalorian Season 3 Story: What Could Happen Next?
The third season of The Mandalorian will premiere in 2019, and Dave Filoni has already given us a taste of what to expect. “Numerous exciting new experiences lie ahead. I have to be careful so I won’t go into detail, but let it suffice to say that I feel the Force is with this.” This is typically Mando, and while it doesn’t reveal anything, it is nonetheless enjoyable.
There are many loose ends in The Mandalorian’s story that season 3 may address.
From what we can tell in the trailer, Mando and Bo-claim Katan’s to the Darksaber ranks high among them. By defeating Moff Gideon in Chapter 16, Din unwittingly claimed the Mandalorian weapon as his own. So, if Bo-Katan wished to take it back from Gideon, he had to defeat Mando in battle. The storyline hole that appeared in The Clone Wars when Sabine Wren simply handed over the Darksaber to Bo-Katan was resolved in The Book of Boba Fett. According to the Armorer, the reason Bo-rule Katan’s of Mandalore ended in tragedy is that he was given the Darksaber as a gift instead of winning it. However, it appears that Din is intent on preserving the weapon and employing it in the pursuit of a reward; he plans to do so after receiving training from the Armorer.
Pascal hinted at his character’s development into a leader in an interview with Total Film, while the season 3 teaser shows him leading a squad of Mandalorians. If he is taking on a leadership role, he is hesitant to do so, he said. “Nothing grabs my attention more than watching a character go through a situation that forces them to learn what they’re made of and what they really are. That has been the most entertaining portion by far. There are, in my opinion, a plethora of techniques to conduct an online search to determine the tone of the remark. That sort of nuanced character growth is what I simply attempted.”
Although Bo-Katan was more guarded when asked about her feelings about losing the Darksaber, she did comment, “Anytime you have a goal, and you don’t have successful, I suppose you re-evaluate.” Intriguing…
And after taking off his helmet in Season 2, Jon Favreau has talked about Din’s quest for forgiveness. After breaking the Creed by not wearing his helmet, “we established in The Book of Boba Fett that there was a potential for the Mandalorian to be rehabilitated,” he explained to Entertainment Weekly’s Dagobah Dispatch podcast (opens in new tab). “And among his fellow Mandalorians, that’s a major no-no.
Knowing this, we can assume that there are subsets of the Mandalorian people who follow a separate set of laws. Dave [Filoni] and I, as the voice of one of the Mandalorian characters in The Clone Wars, experienced firsthand how diverse the species is; now, these societies are converging on Mandalore, their exiled home world, to try to figure out how they can work together.”
The reconciliation of Grogu and Din is another vital plot event. Baby Yoda, in the Book of Boba Fett, is at a crossroads between joining the Jedi Order and remaining with his father, Papa Mando. If the youngling has any second thoughts, or if Luke Skywalker plays a more significant role in The Mandalorian, that will be interesting to watch.
In all likelihood, Grogu’s abilities will remain a significant plot point throughout the remainder of The Mandalorian. At GalaxyCon, Giancarlo Esposito, who plays Moff Gideon, teased, “I am going to get this child, and it’s for a very different reason than many assume.” This could be a hint as to why the villain wants to get his hands on Baby Yoda so severely. Eventually, on this show, we want everyone to know that this youngster has magic powers, is 50 years old, can see the future and that this child could save our universe. That would explain why the Empire is still on the Child’s trail and why we might meet the petite green guy again.
Jokingly, Esposito added: “I’m going to murder this infant in front of you. What do you think? [Laughs] It’s completely incorrect, but I must convince myself of something to keep my hope alive.” That, of course, is something we all hope never happens…
In addition, the actor has promised that his antagonist will remain a dangerous foe. “He’s the ultimate bad guy—invincible, technically savvy, and knowledgeable about everything. You will see Moff again, and soon “According to his interview with Metro.co.uk: (opens in new tab).
Even though Gideon has been captured, he still appears to be up to no good. In the second season finale, he admits that he has been receiving information from an unnamed source throughout the show. There’s a good chance the upcoming Disney Plus season will go more into that link. Would Thrawn dare answer such a call? Or is there another key figure in the Empire of which we are unaware? The teaser for Mando features a massive Star Destroyer, which may indicate that Gideon has influential allies.
The Mandalorian Season 3 Trailer Is Finally Here
After making its debut behind closed doors at the Star Wars Celebration, the trailer for season 3 of The Mandalorian has now been released. Mando and Baby Yoda are reunited in the film, and the two share adorable exchanges; we also get our first live-action look at Mandalore. The Armorer has reprimanded Din Djarin for taking off his helmet, and Bo-Katan has some harsh words for him. And Babu Frik himself makes an appearance or at least a member of his kind. A tiny, teeny video was also shown off at the Star Wars Celebration.
