Premiere Date for ‘The Mandalorian’ Season Three Released at ‘Star Wars Celebration’

The Mandalorian

If you are a Star Wars fan, like me, all the news coming out of “Star Wars Celebration” this weekend is so exciting, and among the reveals is a premiere date for season three of “The Mandalorian” on Disney+.

Season three of “The Mandalorian” began shooting last fall and is now in post-production, getting ready for a debut on Disney+ in February 2023.

The end of season two left viewers with a finale that famously featured the CGI-assisted return of Star Wars vet Mark Hamill as a post-“Return of the Jedi” Luke Skywalker. The Jedi came looking for Grogu to properly train him, and the two left together.

However, that was not the end of that story, as the Mandalorian (played by Pedro Pascal), Grogu, Luke and Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) also surprisingly appeared in episodes of this year’s “The Book of Boba Fett” limited Disney+ series.

During the appearance, Grogu made the difficult decision to forego formal Jedi training, bid Luke adieu, and return to the Mandalorian’s side.


The Mandalorian - Bo-Katan

At the “Star Wars Celebration” date announcement, series co-creators Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni played a quick trailer of the season for the audience that heavily featured the character of Bo-Katan Kryze.

“You didn’t think you’d get rid of me that easy, did you?” actress Katee Sackhoff said as she took the stage, “I may have some unfinished business.”

That unfinished business apparently is a confrontation with The Mandalorian over the Darksaber, which Bo-Katan believed she was destined to take possession of.

Apparently the trailer also showed a montage of characters that will be in season three, including Greef Karga (Carl Weathers), who comes out in brand new red robes, a new character played by Saturday Night Live alum Tim Meadows, Doctor Pershing (Omid Abtahi), and Carson Teva (Paul Sun-Hyung Lee).


Not much else is known about the story line of season three, but it was also revealed that actress/director Bryce Dallas Howard will be directing an episode of the new season.

Howard, who is starring in this summer’s blockbuster “Jurassic World Dominion,” is no stranger to “The Mandalorian” series as she has already directed two episodes for it: the season one episode “Sanctuary” and the season two episode “The Heiress.”

She also helmed the Mando-centric episode, “Return of the Mandalorian,” for “The Book of Boba Fett” series.

During a panel, Grogu even showed up on stage between Filoni and Favreau, which resulted in a group photo:
