More than two years after the unforgettable Season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, Din Zareen and Grogu’s journey finally continues.
That is, if you haven’t seen “The Book of Boba Fett,” which essentially became “The Mandalorian” season 2.5 when Our favorite bounty hunter got kidnapped Two episodes and a half.
Strange creative decisions of Jon Favaro and Dave Filoni’s “Mandoverse” aside, the return of Din Zareen last year was spectacular and set up an interesting third season that will focus on Mandalorian culture, and include a visit to the devastated homeworld of the nomadic warriors. : Mandalore. looking from above latest trailerIt is clear that Grugu is becoming stronger in the force after his time training with Luke Skywalker.
Another matter that will be central to this season is who is entitled to carry the mighty Darksaber and unite the scattered clans of the Mandalorian. Din Zareen isn’t looking for a job at the moment, but after defeating Moff Gideon he gets hold of the coveted weapon. Will Bo-Katan Kryze, the self-proclaimed heir to the throne of Mandalore, settle the matter peacefully or become an enemy of the titular Mandalorian? The teaser released back in september suggests the latter, but we all know marketing can be deceiving.
While these are the big questions everyone is thinking about ahead of the start of the new season on March 1, we are considering other possibilities. This is all a combination of educated guesswork and actual facts, so bear with us. For all the facts we have about Mando’s next visit, check out our guide to Everything We Know About The Mandalorian Season 3.
Before we jump into a pit of wild theories and optimistic wishes, there are spoilers ahead So make sure you’re up to speed on Star Wars’ 2022 live-action show: book of boba fett, obi-wan kenobiAnd internal management and, This is the way.
1, Boba Fett Gets His Rhythm Back
We have to close this article with a response to Jon Favreau’s shocking decision to take almost three episodes Boba Fett In his own show. While Boba Fett’s book wasn’t exactly perfect before our favorite Mandalorian entered the picture, the main character’s surprising arc was worthy of a flourish all its own.
It only makes sense that Mister Fate – now the daimyo of Mos Espa and seemingly all of Tatooine – take over an episode from The Mandalorian Season 3. Then we also have the matter of that post-credits scene with Cobb Vanth healing inside Boba’s bacta tank. after being injured by Cade Bain, apparently teasing the return of Timothy Olyphant in the near future. The main trailer confirms the return of Tatooine, but we hope it’s more than a little detour to grab R5-D4 from Amy Sedaris’ pale moto.
2. From the imperialist point of view
With Moff Gideon now in New Republic custody and the latest trailer teasing a visit to Coruscant, we know for a fact that we’ll learn more about the villain’s plans and what’s happening with the Imperial remains. The First Order will eventually become a thing ahead of the events of the sequel trilogy, but what if he and his comrades are actually working for the secretive Sith cult of Exagol?
Only the most loyal to Emperor Palpatine knew of his ultimate Plan B, and we know that Gideon and his remnants were trying to tamper with Grogu’s midichlorians, as well as those Snoke-like in the abandoned base of Nevarro. Speaking of failed experiments…it all points to a deeply sinister conspiracy, and suggests Dr. Pershing may have had his own visions on Coruscant told largely from the Imperials’ POV. . Should we be prepared to witness firsthand Gideon’s inevitable exodus?
3. Digging in Manda-Vidya
Some of the biggest rumors from the set of The Mandalorian’s third season pointed to Dinn and Grugu visiting mines and tunnels beneath Mandalore’s surface, something that could be part of Dinn’s new mission to atone for the planet’s “living waters”. Clicks together. his crimes. Such claims were reinforced by the main trailer, which shows him wearing a seemingly ancient Mandalorian helmet as well as Grogu traveling alone – and facing an unknown assailant – inside a similar tunnel.
Of course, Mandalore and its culture will play a major role in Season 3, but evidence points to a deeper exploration of its past and legends, of which there are many. We’re hoping Favreau leans on Dave Filoni to truly delve deep and explore the lore that will surely resonate with seasoned Star Wars fans.
4. Grugu’s Original Guard
Another highlight of the Season 3 trailer is a random shot in which several Jedi are preparing to guard a corridor inside the Jedi Temple. This is undoubtedly another flashback to Order 66, possibly a continuation of Grogu’s last trip down memory lane in the sixth episode of The Book of Boba Fett.
This new information automatically gives us the idea that either Luke or Ahsoka could return (hopefully the latter). ashoka tv series), since Grug needs external force-powered support to unearth his repressed memories. And on top of that, an extended look at his Order 66 trauma would certainly answer the mystery of who rescued him and took him away from Coruscant. Any idea?
5. Sabine Wren’s live-action debut
If Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka Appears in One of Two Episodes Co-written by Dave Filoni (opens in new tab), more than likely she’ll be joined by Sabine Wren (played by Natasha Liu Bordizzo) ahead of the series airing later this year. In fact, there’s a very good reason for Sabine making her live-action debut in The Mandalorian.
If you’ve seen The Clone Wars, and especially Rebels, you know what’s up. But for those who don’t have time for Star Wars animation: Sabine comes from a famous Mandalorian clan that played a key role in the fight against the Empire before their planet was destroyed by fire. In addition, he wielded the Darksaber at some point. It’s hard to deny that he’s just as important to recent Mandalorian history as Bo-Katan Kries, if not more so. While her focus is now elsewhere, she would be the most logical guest star on this upcoming season.
