What to Expect – The Mandalorian Season 3

By Nick Murray

March 1st marked the release of season three of The Mandalorian, the wildly popular Disney+ exclusive show. Season three will consist of eight episodes and follow Din Djarin, otherwise known as the Mandalorian, played by Pedro Pascal, and fan-favorite Grogu, a character affectionately named Baby Yoda by the Star Wars fan base. Episode one, titled, “The Apostate,” has a run time of 37 minutes and takes place about a year after the conclusion of season two. While Grogu and Mando are reunited, Grogu has experienced a serious change in power as he spent the past year training with Luke Skywalker. Fans can expect to see several returning characters from previous seasons as well as a few characters from other Star Wars media, including a few cameos from  Clone Wars characters for fans who are familiar with other Star Wars shows. Episode two is planned to premiere on Disney+ on Wednesday, February 8. The show will release each remaining episode at 12:00 AM every Wednesday. Fans have been spoiled with Star Wars shows over the past few years with the release of The Bad Batch, The Book of Boba Fett, and Andor, to name a few. In contrast to the massive criticism of Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy, reviews of Star Wars shows have been overwhelmingly positive been largely positive with content suitable for all age groups. However, at the core of Disney’s plan to release more Star Wars media over the coming months lies The Mandalorian. The show served as a base for reintroducing fan-favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett who now has his own show, played by Temuera Morrison. Ultimately, Star Wars fans have a multitude of media to look forward to, including the next adventure of Mando and Grogu.
