The Mandalorian Season 3: Production Status!
Lately, several stars of Favreau’s bounty hunter series were busy in the production of a spin-off series titled “The Book of Boba Fett.” Since now the filming for its first season is finally wrapped, the cast can return and begin the production of The Mandalorian Season 3. Earlier, Pedro Pascal updated that the production has already kicked off. But according to a new update by Giancarlo Esposito, the filming for the third installment is yet to begin.
In a recent interview, Esposito stated that “They just finished shooting Boba Fett, and soon they will start on season three.” The show’s titular character, which is played by Pedro Pascal, is currently busy with the production of ‘The Last of Us.’ However, according to Giancarlo Esposito, his absence won’t affect the filming schedule of The Mandalorian Season 3. He stated the cast and crew never have to wait for Pedro. In addition, since the titular character wears a helmet, it gives Pascal the option to provide his voice to the character.
What Will Happen Next?
It looks like Jon Favreau is keeping every single detail of the show’s third season under the wraps. The second season also ended at a cliffhanger. By its end, Skywalker got Grogu, whereas Din Djarin had the Darksaber. Therefore, the third season will likely continue the Darksaber story arc. Earlier, Esposito teased that the fans would be seeing him killing Baby Yoda in the forthcoming installment. He also quoted that Grogu can see the future, and he is the only key to save the entire Star Wars Universe.
The arrival of three spin-off series will also affect the storyline of The Mandalorian Season 3 . They are- The Boof of the Boba Fett, Ahsoka, and Rangers of the New Republic, and all of them will be set in the same timeline. So, the possibilities are endless, and the plotline of the upcoming installment can go in any direction.
