The Mandalorian Season 3: A Glimpse into the Exciting Future of the Star Wars Universe
The new trailer for the third season of the hit Disney+ series The Mandalorian has finally dropped, and fans are ecstatic. The trailer gave us a glimpse into what’s to come for our favourite bounty hunter and his young companion, Grogu (formerly known as Baby Yoda). As both Disney and Star Wars are within our licencing portfolio, we thought we would tell you about everything we know so far…
The trailer opens with an apparent showdown between two groups of Mandalorians. We see Din Djarin/Mando emerge from the shadows to stand alongside some like-minded Mandalorians, and the way the footage is edited seems to imply they’re at odds with the other gang we see.
Moments later, we see Din and Grogu returning to Nevarro to reunite with Greef Karga, who appears to be the new leader of this world’s main city.
It seems Nevarro has become a safe haven for all manner of people and creatures. At the 0:30 mark, we see a Kowakian monkey-lizard, a semi-sentient reptilian race that is often sold on the black market as pets to members of the criminal underworld. Seeing as this Kowakian is hanging out in a tree all by itself, it’s not owned by anyone, meaning it’s free to, well, do what Kowakians do. If you’re trying to remember where you’ve seen a Kowakian before, Jabba the Hutt owned one in the original Star Wars trilogy.
The official trailer is packed with Star Wars Easter eggs – and that includes the droids that appear in it.
First, you can catch a glimpse of an R5-D4 droid in Mando’s remodelled Naboo Starfighter. Din and Grogu are seen departing Peli Motto’s starship workshop, so it seems she’s the one who mends this R5-D4 droid and programs it to co-pilot Din’s ship. There are some B1 battle droids from the prequel trilogy, an R2-D2-like astromech droid, an RA-7 Death Star Droid, and a bunch of others. We know Mando wasn’t keen on droids for a long time, so seeing him have a conversation with its bartender and other droids is sure to make for some amusing content.
It also appears that Din has taken it upon himself to train Grogu, too. The trailer’s final shot shows Grogu taking down an unidentifiable enemy after Grogu emerges from a cave system. However, if you look behind the monster before it drops down in front of Grogu, you’ll see what appears to be Din leaning against a rock formation.
Overall, the trailer for the third season of The Mandalorian has fans on the edge of their seats with anticipation. The series has consistently delivered high-quality action and storytelling, and this season looks to be no different. With an all-star cast, stunning visuals, and a deeper dive into the Star Wars lore, the third season of The Mandalorian is shaping up to be a must-watch event.
The series is set to release on March 1st on Disney+.
