The Mandalorian Season 3 has been confirmed by creator Jon Favreau, and filming will begin before the end of the year. Although the second season of The Mandalorian doesn’t begin until October 30 with the next series of eight weekly episodes, Disney Plus has already committed to more series.
This isn’t a big surprise – but it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet. Rather, the third season was reported in April by a Hollywood magazine. Also in February, Disney’s Bob Iger made reference to the second season of “More of The Mandalorian After,” including the possibility of spin-offs.
Season 3 was confirmed in an article on Variety in which Favreau said they were “on schedule”
It helps that The Mandalorian uses virtual sets and revolves around smaller situations, which minimizes the number of people needed to film the show. The show’s elaborate digital backdrops are pretty amazing to look at, and give you movie-sized Star Wars production values, but they were created using an entirely different process. Favreau also notes that the show features many characters in masks.
A Mandalorian movie?
Favreau had something interesting to say about how he sees the future of The Mandalorian.
“I learned a lot from my experience at Marvel, where it was very organic about how it would turn out,” says the Iron Man director. “They look for larger storylines and characters that might come together, but also smaller stories of individual characters that might start [on their own thing]. The key here is to keep the quality and never scale to the point where we lose sight of what is important to us and what people like about the show. “
In that case, the baby would be Yoda and The Mandalorian – the main traveling duo at the center of the show. Much is still uncertain about the second season of The Mandalorian. Rumors of characters from the wider Star Wars universe emerge.
Favreau is also asked about the possibility of The Mandalorian getting on screen – which he says they are “in no rush” but that they are “definitely open to it”. However, there was no discussion about film appearances.
It looks like the Star Wars TV show is a long time coming.
