‘The Mandalorian’ Season 3: What to Know About Baby Yoda’s Future Adventures

May 18, 2022

May 17, 2022 The Book of Boba Fett is closed and Obi-Wan Kenobi is coming this month, but The Mandalorian, the live-action Disney Plus Star Wars show that introduced Grogu (aka Baby Yoda), is coming back for season 3. It’ll seemingly arrive later this year or early next year. Let’s take a look at where Mando’s adventures, which take place five years after Return of the Jedi, are likely to go next. We’ll be diving into full SPOILER territory for the first two seasons and The Book of Boba Fett, so be warned if you aren’t up to date. When is season 3 coming to Disney Plus? We don’t have an exact release date for the next season yet, but it’s coming in late 2022 or early 2023, according to Vanity Fair. The release date will probably be revealed at Star Wars convention Celebration Anaheim, which runs Thursday, May 26, to Sunday, May 29. The Mandalorian will be in the spotlight during a “Live-action showcase” on Thursday and “Mando Plus: A Conversation with Jon Favreau & Dave Filoni” on Saturday, so expect updates on the series from those panels. It’ll come out after the Obi-Wan Kenobi show, which arrives May 27, and Andor, which Vanity Fair reported is coming in late summer. What else do we know about season 3? Very little, but beloved Back to the Future actor Christopher Lloyd will show up in a guest role (which likely means he’ll be in one or two episodes), according to The Hollywood Reporter. The second season ended with Luke Skywalker taking Grogu for Jedi training and a post-credits scene teasing Boba Fett’s show. It initially seemed like the bounty hunter’s solo show would tell a ocompletely separate story. However, the narrative shifted to Mando and Grogu in the last few episodes — the pair reunited after the little guy rejected Luke’s training and returned to his armored space dad. During season 2, Mando (real name Din Djarin) also ran into another group of Mandalorians, led by Bo-Katan Kryze. She was on a mission to retake their home world Mandalore and get the Darksaber (a Mandalorian symbol of leadership) back from Moff Gideon. In the season finale, Mando took possession of the Darksaber and inadvertently became the leader of the Mandalorians. It seems likely that he’ll join Bo-Katan’s mission and return to Mandalore in season 3. Moff Gideon shows off the Darksaber, which he lost in the season 2 finale. Lucasfilm We also found out that Mando isn’t a typical Mandalorian. Bo-Katan revealed that he’s a Child of the Watch, a “cult of religious zealots that broke away from Mandalorian society.” That’s why he isn’t supposed to remove his helmet and reveal his face to anyone. But he gradually became more open to showing his face during the first two seasons, and admitting that to his fellow Children of the Watch got him kicked out of the group. Boba Fett has his own show now, so he might be too busy to show up in The Mandalorian season 3. Lucasfilm What’s the deal with Boba Fett? The closing shot of season 2’s first episode revealed a mysterious man (Temuera Morrison) watching Mando from afar. He appears to be wearing Tusken Raider gear, and then he turns around, revealing the face of Boba Fett — the bounty hunter who fell into the sarlacc pit in Return of the Jedi. The Mandalorian armor that Cobb Vanth (Timothy Olyphant) was wearing in the episode was Boba’s, and he tracked Mando until he could reclaim it in the season’s sixth episode. After helping Mando rescue Grogu from the Imperial Remnant in the season finale, a post-credits scene revealed Boba’s next move: seizing power in Tatooine’s criminal underworld, leading directly into spinoff show The Book of Boba Fett. Morrison played bounty hunter Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones and also portrayed the clone troopers in that movie and Revenge of the Sith. Jango was recruited by Count Dooku to serve as the genetic template for the clone army used by the Galactic Republic, as part of Darth Sidious’ convoluted plot to wipe out the Jedi. Part of Jango’s payment was an unaltered clone that he could raise as his son — Boba — but the elder Fett was killed during the Battle of Geonosis. The younger Fett was played by Daniel Logan in Attack of the Clones and The Clone Wars CGI animated series, but The Mandalorian takes place decades later, and a grown-up Boba would look identical to Jango. Sideshow’s life-size The Child is the Baby Yoda collectible you’ve been waiting for See all photos However, Boba isn’t the only person with Jango’s face. Even though clone troopers were designed to age at an accelerated speed, some could still be alive. The Rebels series finale revealed that Commander Rex fought in Return of the Jedi’s Battle of Endor (a few years prior to the events of The Mandalorian), while Commander Wolffe survived until at least the end of Rebels (which took place years before A New Hope). We saw a mysterious person approach assassin Fennec Shand’s body on Tatooine in the final moments of the fifth episode of season 1, with Fett’s trademark spur sound effect, and the sixth episode of season 2 revealed that it was indeed Boba. He saved her life, and she teamed up with him to repay the favor — she also joined him in The Book of Boba Fett. Fans of the Legends material (developed in novels, comics and games prior to 2014) will recall that Boba escaped the sarlacc in that continuity and went on to become the leader of Mandalore in a very different (and noncanon) post-Return of the Jedi galaxy. Ahsoka Tano showed up in The Mandalorian season 2. Lucasfilm Other Mandalorian spinoffs Ahsoka Tano, the former Padawan of the late Anakin Skywalker and star of CGI animated series The Clone Wars, made her live-action debut in season 2. She’s played by Rosario Dawson, whom you might remember playing Claire Temple in Netflix’s Marvel shows. Her spinoff series, Ahsoka, is coming to Disney Plus and will probably see her hunting for Grand Admiral Thrawn. The Imperial villain was last seen in the finale of animated series Rebels, which is set years before The Mandalorian, but we don’t know why Ahsoka is after him. This show’s release date is unclear — it’ll likely be 2023. Gina Carano, who played Cara Dune (right) in the first two seasons of The Mandalorian, won’t be returning to the Star Wars universe. Lucasfilm There was also Rangers of the New Republic, which fans initially speculated would feature Marshal Cara Dune, but that show isn’t going to happen. In February 2021, Lucasfilm said that Gina Carano, who played Cara in the first two seasons, would no longer be in The Mandalorian or future Star Wars projects. Then in May, Variety reported that the show was “not currently in active development,” and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy later told Empire Magazine that elements from it would likely be used in The Mandalorian instead. What about Baby Yoda? This little guy captured everyone’s heart the moment he appeared in the first episode. We also learned that he was 50 years old and could use the Force, but we were well into season 2 before we learned anything else about him. In that season’s fifth episode, Ahsoka Tano communicated with him using the Force and discovered that his real name is Grogu. He was raised in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, before being hidden when the Empire wiped out the Jedi in Revenge of the Sith, and in the decades since, he’s suppressed his powers to stay off the bad guys’ radar. Grogu also loves the Razor Crest’s stick shift. Lucasfilm The Imperial Remnant apparently wanted him so it can use his blood to create Force-strong beings. But it’s unclear if this is for Moff Gideon’s own ends, or if Gideon is knowingly working for the reborn Palpatine or unknowingly doing the hidden Emperor’s bidding. He went with Luke Skywalker to be trained in the ways of the Force in the season 2 finale, but he reunited with Mando in the last episode of The Book of Boba Fett. Oh, and the most detailed version of the puppet apparently cost around $5 million. The Mandalorian’s rifle is Nerf’s latest Star Wars target See all photos What happened in seasons 1, 2 and The Book of Boba Fett? You’re in luck! I wrote detailed recaps of each episode that you can use to catch up: Season 1 Chapter 1: Stranger in a Strange Land Chapter 2: The Tribes of Tatooine Chapter 3: The Streets of Mos Espa Chapter 4: The Gathering Storm Chapter 5: Return of the Mandalorian Chapter 6: From the Desert Comes a Stranger Chapter 7: In the Name of Honor Is there a bounty of Mandalorian merch? You can re-create that time Mando got filthy with the Black Series The Mandalorian and Grogu (Arvala-7) deluxe set. Hasbro Merchandise hunting is a complicated hobby, but you know you want it. Since the show’s debut in November 2019, a mountain of toys and other collectibles have been released. Highlights include Hasbro’s six-inch Black Series and Vintage Collection. There was a steady stream for season 2 as well, like Lego’s huge Baby Yoda set, Polaroid’s Mandalorian-themed instant camera and Hasbro’s Black Series The Mandalorian and Grogu (Arvala-7) deluxe set. . Lucasfilm revealed new collectibles each Monday during season 2’s run — a merchandising push known as “Mando Mondays.” One of the coolest items is probably the Force FX Elite Darksaber replica, which has a removable blade, a metallic hilt, makes excellent sound effects and comes with a lovely stand. It’ll set you back $265. Are there any tie-in books? If you’re into the show’s aesthetic, Lucasfilm creative art manager Phil Szostak’s The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season One and Season Two are available now. The first season of The Mandalorian is getting a Marvel Comics adaptation in June. Marvel Comics What’s the deal with the documentary? Season 1 got an eight-episode Disney Plus making-of series called Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian. It includes interviews with the cast and crew, footage from the show’s production and roundtable conversations hosted by Favreau. The second season didn’t take the episodic approach for its behind-the-scenes feature; much of the behind-the-scenes footage was all stuffed into a one-hour special instead. A special focused on the season 2 finale dropped last August, revealing the digital trickery used to pull off that incredible young Luke Skywalker cameo. Director Peyton Reed also shared a photo of Mark Hamill bonding with Grogu. What’s a Mandalorian? Mandalorians are humans from the Outer Rim world of Mandalore, its moon Concordia and the planet Kalevala, whose story was largely told in The Clone Wars and Rebels. Their world went through major political upheaval during the Clone Wars and early days of the Galactic Empire’s rule, but many of the clans united under the rule of Bo-Katan Kryze after she took control of the Darksaber. The black-bladed weapon was created more than 1,000 years earlier by Tarre Vizsla (the first Mandalorian to join the Jedi Order) and became a symbol of leadership. Sabine Wren (seen wielding the Darksaber in Rebels) could appear in the show. Lucasfilm Who’s in the show? Pedro Pascal (best known for playing Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones) is the bounty hunter behind the helmet: He’s a lone Mandalorian gunfighter operating in the outer reaches of the galaxy. Pedro Pascal is the man behind the Mandalorian’s helmet. Lucasfilm
