Surprises won’t be as big in Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 3
Don’t expect any mind-blowing surprises in the third season of The Mandalorian as Jon Favreau has explained where to set your expectations.
During the recent CCXP 2022 convention in Brazil, executive producer Jon Favreau revealed that there may not be as many huge surprises in the third season of The Mandalorian, teasing returning characters and more.
“We like to keep surprises so that each week as we tune in, we get to discover things. Hopefully, unexpected things occur,” Favreau stated at the convention, via Collider. “I think it was really wonderful that everybody that worked on the show was able to keep Grogu a secret until he was revealed in the first episode.
“Also with Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker appearing in Season 2. Not everything is gonna be a big surprise like that, but each week it should be something unexpected happening. And that’s the idea of having a serialized television show where, what’s nice about it compared to a film, is that every week, everybody gets to see a chapter and discusses it and guesses what’s gonna happen next.”
That moment at the end of Season 2 even received its own LEGO set in the form of 75324 Dark Trooper Attack, though these comments suggest that we shouldn’t expect anything quite as mind-blowing as that in the episodes to come. However, Favreau continued, noting a few things that we can expect to see in the third season.
“I will say, though, that the scope of it is getting bigger. We have really cool space battles, we have lots of Mandalorians and we have the planet of Mandalore, which we’ve been talking about for a long time.”
“We learn more about the Mandalorian culture, and of course, all the great actors that you’ve seen from seasons previous, many of them returned, and we get to see them all work together on this show.”
The third season of The Mandalorian is releasing on March 1, 2023, and recent stills shared from the show and the first trailer should help you pass the time until Din Djarin and Grogu are back on Disney+.
