The Unhealthy Batch season 2 is bringing contemporary Star Wars motion to Disney Plus every week, however you could be questioning when Mando and Grogu (aka Child Yoda) will return for extra adventures. The Mandalorian season 3 will kick off in March 2023, and the primary trailer hints at the place the shiny dad/inexperienced son duo’s story will go after their show-stealing look in The E book of Boba Fett earlier this 12 months.
Let’s check out the place Mando’s adventures, which happen 5 years after Return of the Jedi, are prone to go subsequent. We’ll be diving into full SPOILER territory for the primary two seasons and The E book of Boba Fett, so be warned should you aren’t updated.
Is there a Mandalorian season 3 trailer?
There positive is. The primary trailer was launched throughout Disney’s D23 Expo in early September. It is almost equivalent to the trailers proven to the group at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim (however not launched on-line) in Could.
A brand new trailer will debut at halftime in Jan. 16’s Monday Evening Soccer sport, the Disney-owned ESPN stated in a launch Friday.
When is season 3 coming to Disney Plus?
It is scheduled to kick off on Wednesday, March 1, 2023, Disney confirmed in December. It is unclear what number of episodes we’ll get that day, or how lengthy the season will final.
What else can we find out about season 3?
“The journeys of the Mandalorian via the Star Wars galaxy proceed. As soon as a lone bounty hunter, Din Djarin has reunited with Grogu,” the synopsis included in ESPN’s Jan. 13 launch reads. “In the meantime, the New Republic struggles to guide the galaxy away from its darkish historical past. The Mandalorian will cross paths with outdated allies and make new enemies as he and Grogu proceed their journey collectively.”
The trailers hinted that we’ll be going to Mandalore, a world we have beforehand seen solely in animated reveals The Clone Wars and Rebels, together with a flashback glimpse in The E book of Boba Fett. It has been ruined by the Empire, however Mando should return to the planet to atone for eradicating his helmet.
There’s some rigidity between Mando and Bo-Katan at first, however a mutual respect quickly develops.
Grogu is alongside for the journey, and nonetheless ridiculously cute. Former Mandalorian chief Bo-Katan Kryze has a regal second sitting on a throne just like the one in Mandalorian capital Sundari. (This room options prominently within the closing episodes of The Clone Wars.) Mando allies the Armorer and Greef Karga will even return.
Motion sequences included large Imperial Star Destroyers and advised that Mando will lead a few of his fellow Mandalorians into battle. It is potential this may carry him into contact with Imperial Grand Admiral Thrawn, a villain seen in Rebels, since Mando’s Jedi ally Ahsoka Tano talked about him in season 2.
Now taking part in:
Disney’s Galactic Starcruiser: What It is Actually Like…
The second season ended with Luke Skywalker taking Grogu for Jedi coaching and a post-credits scene teasing Boba Fett’s present. It initially appeared just like the bounty hunter’s solo present would inform a totally separate story. Nonetheless, the narrative shifted to Mando and Grogu in the previous couple of episodes — the pair reunited after the little man rejected Luke’s coaching and returned to his armored house dad.
Throughout season 2, Mando (actual title Din Djarin) additionally bumped into one other group of Mandalorians, led by Bo-Katan. She was on a mission to retake their home-world Mandalore and get the Darksaber (a Mandalorian image of management) again from Moff Gideon. Within the season finale, Mando took possession of the Darksaber and inadvertently turned the chief of the Mandalorians.
It appears doubtless that he’ll be part of Bo-Katan’s mission to a point, however the Darksaber will stay a supply of rigidity.
Moff Gideon reveals off the Darksaber, which he misplaced within the season 2 finale.
We additionally discovered that Mando is not a typical Mandalorian. Bo-Katan revealed that he is a Baby of the Watch, a “cult of non secular zealots that broke away from Mandalorian society.” That is why he is not alleged to take away his helmet and reveal his face to anybody. However he steadily turned extra open to displaying his face through the first two seasons, and admitting that to his fellow Kids of the Watch — led by the Armorer — bought him kicked out of the group.
Beloved Again to the Future actor Christopher Lloyd will even present up in a visitor function (which doubtless means he’ll be in a single or two episodes), in response to The Hollywood Reporter.
Boba Fett has his personal present now, so he could be too busy to point out up in The Mandalorian season 3.
What is the cope with Boba Fett?
The closing shot of season 2’s first episode revealed a mysterious man (Temuera Morrison) watching Mando from afar. He seems to be sporting Tusken Raider gear, after which he turns round, 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 sporting within the episode was Boba’s, and he tracked Mando till he may reclaim it within the season’s sixth episode.
After serving to Mando rescue Grogu from the Imperial Remnant within the season finale, a post-credits scene revealed Boba’s subsequent transfer: seizing energy in Tatooine’s felony underworld, main instantly into spinoff present The E book of Boba Fett.
Morrison performed bounty hunter Jango Fett in Assault of the Clones and in addition portrayed the clone troopers in that film and Revenge of the Sith. Jango was recruited by Depend Dooku to function the genetic template for the clone military utilized by the Galactic Republic, as a part of Darth Sidious’ convoluted plot to wipe out the Jedi. A part of Jango’s cost was an unaltered clone that he may increase as his son — Boba — however the elder Fett was killed through the Battle of Geonosis.
The youthful Fett was performed by Daniel Logan in Assault of the Clones and The Clone Wars, however The Mandalorian takes place a long time later, and a grown-up Boba would look equivalent to Jango.

Nonetheless, Boba is not the one particular person with Jango’s face. Despite the fact that clone troopers have been designed to age at an accelerated velocity, some may nonetheless be alive. The Rebels collection finale revealed that Commander Rex fought in Return of the Jedi’s Battle of Endor (a number of years previous to the occasions of The Mandalorian), whereas Commander Wolffe survived till not less than the tip of Rebels (which passed off years earlier than A New Hope).
We noticed a mysterious particular person strategy murderer Fennec Shand’s physique on Tatooine within the closing moments of the fifth episode of season 1, with Fett’s trademark spur sound impact, and the sixth episode of season 2 revealed that it was certainly Boba. He saved her life, and he or she teamed up with him to repay the favor. She additionally joined him in The E book of Boba Fett.
Followers of the Legends materials (developed in novels, comics and video games previous to 2014) will recall that Boba escaped the sarlacc in that continuity and went on to turn into the chief of Mandalore in a really totally different (and noncanon) post-Return of the Jedi galaxy.
Ahsoka Tano confirmed up in The Mandalorian season 2.
Different Mandalorian spinoffs
Ahsoka Tano, the previous Padawan of the late Anakin Skywalker and star of CGI animated collection The Clone Wars, made her live-action debut in season 2. She’s performed by Rosario Dawson, whom you may bear in mind taking part in Claire Temple in Netflix’s Marvel reveals.
Her spinoff collection, Ahsoka, is coming to Disney Plus and can most likely see her trying to find Grand Admiral Thrawn because it continues the story of animated collection Rebels (which is ready years earlier than The Mandalorian). The Imperial villain was final seen within the Rebels finale, however we do not know why Ahsoka is after him. This present is scheduled for launch in 2023, and its occasions will doubtless tie instantly into future Mandalorian plotlines.
Gina Carano, who performed Cara Dune (proper) within the first two seasons of The Mandalorian, will not be returning to the Star Wars universe.
There was additionally Rangers of the New Republic, which followers initially speculated would characteristic Marshal Cara Dune, however that present is not going to occur. In February 2021, Lucasfilm stated that Gina Carano, who performed Cara within the first two seasons, would now not be in The Mandalorian or future Star Wars tasks.
In Could 2021, Selection reported that the present was “not presently in lively growth,” and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy later informed Empire Journal that parts from it could doubtless be utilized in The Mandalorian as a substitute.
What about Child Yoda?
This little man captured everybody’s coronary heart the second he appeared within the first episode. We additionally realized that he was 50 years outdated and will use the Drive, however we have been nicely into season 2 earlier than we realized the rest about him.
In that season’s fifth episode, Ahsoka Tano communicated with him utilizing the Drive and found that his actual title is Grogu. He was raised within the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, earlier than being hidden when the Empire worn out the Jedi in Revenge of the Sith, and within the a long time since, he is suppressed his powers to remain off the unhealthy guys’ radar.
Grogu additionally loves the Razor Crest’s stick shift.
The Imperial Remnant apparently wished him so it will possibly use his blood to create Drive-strong beings. However it’s unclear if that is for Moff Gideon’s personal ends, or if Gideon is knowingly working for the reborn Palpatine or unknowingly doing the hidden Emperor’s bidding.
Grogu went with Luke Skywalker to be educated within the methods of the Drive within the season 2 finale, however he reunited with Mando within the final episode of The E book of Boba Fett.
Oh, and probably the most detailed model of the puppet apparently price round $5 million.
