It’s unfortunate that Star Wars fans haven’t had the same luck as Marvel fans in terms of the Disney+ series and films in 2021. The Mandalorian Season 2 in December broke the internet with its Season 2 finale. After that the only content from the galaxy far, far away was the Star Wars: The Bad Batch Animates series. Besides that, there has been no other entertainment from that galaxy.
A new anime series, ‘Star Wars: Visions’ is on the way. At the same time, the return of live-action in The Book of Boba Fett will also make its premiere in December. However, the lack of material paired with the absence of Mando has left fans wondering when will Season 3 release. Now that Obi-Wan Kenobi has been completed, The Mandalorian’s Season 3 shooting schedule may provide an answer to when fans can expect.
A source from Bespin Bulletin confirms that The Mandalorian’s third season would begin production on September 20. This, with the objective of concluding up in March 2022. Mando 2 ended in March 2020 and premiered on Disney+ on October 30, 2020. Keeping this in mind, a season 3 release is expected in late 2022 or perhaps later.
Season 1 began filming in October 2018 and was released in November 2019. Season 2 was shot over an eleven-month period. Between the commencement and air date, that’s a total of roughly thirteen months in total. Season 1 and Season 2 were shot before COVID-19 without the present limitations and procedures that have now become customary.
While production for The Book of Boba Fett began in November 2020, its release date has been scheduled for December of this year. This is in line with The Mandalorian’s previous release timetable. A few days after The Mandalorian season 2’s conclusion, Lucasfilm announced The Book of Boba Fett as their next live-action project. As a result, people wondered if Mando and Grogu’s narrative had ended.
Since he now has access to the Darksaber as well, Lucasfilm has assured that Mando’s narrative will continue. The Book of Boba Fett, on the other hand, has a few clues that hint at his and Baby Yoda’s appearance. Lucasfilm appears to be keeping a strict timetable for the release of the third season of Mando. Especially with the addition of new series such as Ahsoka, it may have connections to the Star Wars Rebels storyline.
Lucasfilm does not need to shoot on location. As a result, the utilization of Volume Technology has helped films to go forward swiftly. Many of the unanswered issues regarding the future of the series might be answered when The Book of Boba Fett releases in December. The two bounty hunters are related. Consequently, it is possible that they have more in common with each other than the fans initially believed.
Mandalorian is officially back after two seasons of Mando and Baby Yoda exploring the galaxy. Aside from The Force Awakens, Disney+ will also include a number of other live-action Star Wars shows. The company is also working on Andor, a prequel series to Rogue One starring Diego Luna. Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a third spin-off series after that.
Among those expected to return are Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito. Katee Sackhoff is also expected to return as Bo-Katan Kryze. Her character was the first user of the Darksaber, as this was one of the plot arcs that was left open-ended after season 2.
Gina Carano, who played Cara Dune, won’t be returning to the series as a guest star. According to iO9, this is what Lucasfilm had to say. “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
A prominent character in The Mandalorian, Cara Dune was set up to play a large role in The Rangers of the New Republic, but her role was never confirmed. An official from Lucasfilm has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the role would not be replaced.
Although Rosario Dawson will feature in her own spin-off series as Ahsoka Tano, her show takes set in the same timeframe as The Mandalorian, so she might make another cameo appearance. It’s safe to say that Temuera Morrison’s portrayal of Boba Fett in season two was crucial. He’ll be done with his own show by the time season three airs. Unexpected crossovers with both characters are possible, and Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec Shand may make an appearance.
