The Mandalorian Season 3 has finally started filming.
Gref Karga actor Carl Weathers confirms the news on twitter: “The Mandalorian, Season #3 for Yours Truly Begins Tomorrow. Gref Karga will be back on Disney+. #BePeace”
The Mandalorian Season 2 finale returned in December 2020, and the wait for more Mando and Baby Yoda adventures has been on the rise ever since. Before the third season arrives, though, there will be The Book of Boba Fett, which debuts this December 29, while both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Endor are reportedly landing in 2022. The Mandalorian Season 3 doesn’t have an arrival date yet, but we can probably expect it in late 2022 if it follows the release pattern of the previous two seasons.
The plot of the third installment is shrouded in mystery, though we can make some guesses as to what might happen next. For one thing, there’s the case of the Darksaber, now in possession of Din Gerrin—which complicates things for the Bo-Katan Kriz.
Then there’s Moff Gideon, who has hinted by Giancarlo Esposito that there will still be a sinister appearance in Season 3: “I’m going to have this baby. [Grogu], and it’s for very different reasons than a lot of people think,” he said recently. “This kid has magical powers, is 50 years old, and can see the future, and we wish that every Someone on this show can finally find out that this kid can save our universe.”
This seems to be a clue that the little green boy in question will be back for the third outing of the series, after he was whisked away by Luke Skywalker to Jedi training in Season 2.
