Disney+ has released the first full trailer, along with a new poster, for the upcoming season 3 of “The Mandalorian,” which will debut on the streamer on March 1, 2023.
The trailer begins with an old west vibe as Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) is heard saying, “Our people are scattered like stars in the galaxy. What are we? What do we stand for?”
“Being a Mandalorian’s not just learning about how to fight,” he continues. “You also have to know how to navigate the galaxy. That way, you’ll never be lost.”
Take a look:
Breaking It Down
The teaser trailer released at D23 Expo 2022 has now been expanded on, as we learn Din Djarin and Grogu (reunited during “The Book of Boba Fett) are headed to Mandalore, where our hero plans to make amends for his “transgressions” (namely showing his face to others).
The official synopsis says, “The Mandalorian will cross paths with old allies and make new enemies as he and Grogu continue their journey together.”
From the trailer, we see plenty of other Mandalorians, along with Jedi and Imperial Forces. We also briefly see bounty hunter guild leader Greef Karga (Carl Weathers), along with the droidsmith Babu Frik and a fellow Anzellan, and The Armorer (Emily Swallow).
And it looks like the show also partially takes place in Coruscant, the vibrant heart and capital of the galaxy…and the Empire.
My favorite part of the trailer? Din Djarin’s voice saying, “This is the way” as Grogu uses The Force to defend himself.
Also returning are Giancarlo Esposito as the villainous Moff Gideon, and Katee Sackoff as Mandalorian Bo-Katan Kryze, who holds a grudge against Din Djarin.
Christopher Lloyd is also confirmed to make a cameo this season.
Directors on this eight-episoe season three of “The Mandalorian” include returning helmer Rick Famuyiwa, “Black Panther” cinematographer Rachel Morrison, “Minari” filmmaker Lee Isaac Chung, “The Mandalorian” actor Carl Weathers, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”‘s Peter Ramsey, and returning director Bryce Dallas Howard, who has helmed episodes in previous seasons.
Jon Favreau is the showrunner/head writer and serves as an executive producer along with Dave Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck are co-executive producers.
Since the series returns March 1, now is a good time to rewatch the first two seasons (and “The Book of Boba Fett”) on Disney+.
In addition to the full trailer, Disney+ and LucasFilm have dropped a new poster for “The Mandalorian” season three:
