Well, Star Wars fans, its finally here!
It’s been over two years since season 2 of The Mandalorian wrapped up and its been just over a year since we saw Mando and Grogo in The Book of Boba Fett spin off. But, everyone’s favourite duo are back.
So what is happening in Season 3?
We know the story of The Mandalorian Season 3 will see Mando and Grogu on a quest to restore the homeworld of Mandalore. That is no easy task, as the Mandalorian tribes have been scattered by Mandalore’s conquest, not ot mention their conflicting cultural views. Mando stands as a bridge between hardliners like The Armorer and her Tribe, and Bo-Katan Kryze and her Nite Owl faction. While he holds the Darksaber, it’s Mando who will also be the target of every faction trying to become the new leaders of Mandalore – as well as lingering enemies like the Imperial remnants controlled by Moff Gideon.
Giancarlo Esposito who plays Gideon recently spoke about the upcoming season to Collider about why this will be the best season yet
“I just think that the show gets more expanded and more visually profound with each season. And I think it’s the vision of Jon Favreau and David Filoni, certainly, that begins that expansion. But it’s also all of the artisans that they trust to collaborate with them. I was blown away by that sizzle reel. All of a sudden, the world just came at you in a much more intense, and – it’s always been gratifying – but in a way that allowed you to know… You know that feeling that you have of dread or doom, or excitement personified? That’s the feeling you get because the story is all of a sudden being coalesced for you to understand elements that you didn’t know about,” Esposito shared.
He continued, “Look, we can say a lot of words about a lot of different things, just like Kaleidoscope. But I think when you watch it, you have the space to feel emotion and connection between characters. The Mandalorian, you have the space to feel the largess of this universe, of this world-building. And you have the space to see where you fit in. God, I wish I could be that warrior, that hero, that heroine. And we see the weakness and the power of the villainous who want for themselves and not for the whole. What I love about this show, it is about our army, is about all of us who are starting to understand, once again, it’s for the people and by the people. And if we stand up and allow our voices to be heard, and understand there’s strength in numbers, we can then recreate the world as it should be in peace, harmony, and creatively, scientifically, and politically, a way for us to understand that there are no borders anymore. The Mandalorian exemplifies all of that.”
With that being said, we will only have to wait until March 1st to see all this when Season 3 will begin streaming on Disney+
