the Star Wars Celebration 2022 in Anaheim, California started and like every year (if it’s not canceled because of Corona) there will be many announcements and trailers for upcoming “Star Wars“ projects. DashFUN editor Benjamin Hecht is on site and was amazed when he saw the trailer for the “Rogue One” prequel series “Andor”. an exclusive sneak peak to “The Mandalorian’ Season 3, which was only shown to those present and was not published on the Internet.
The trailer begins with the titular hero Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) on a gray and barren planet. We see the gunsmith (Emily Swallow) telling him: “You’re not a Mandalorian anymore”. She accuses him of breaking the code of the warrior people. (After all, Din showed his face to his protégé Grogu in season 2, violating his vow never to remove his helmet in front of living beings.) Worse, since Mandalore was devastated, it is no longer possible for Din to venture into cleanse the local waters beneath the Mandalorian mines.
Such a conversation already existed in “The Book of Boba Fett”. However, the trailer for “Mandalorian” Season 3 reveals that Din Djarin is trying anyway and that the plot of the new episodes will be about exactly that. Din sets out for Mandalore to find the apparently destroyed mines and thus redeem himself. He is also joined by Grogu, often referred to as Baby Yoda, but another returning character also plays a big role in the trailer.
One shot shows Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff) seated on a throne (this could be the throne of Mandalore) and appears to be waiting for Din there. Is she up for a fight? Anyway, Bo-Katan’s role in Season 3 will be big. That was on the Star Wars Celebrationwhere Katee Sackhoff was brought on stage as a surprise guest.
In the trailer there is also a quick succession of various other scenes to see. For example, Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) returns, who now seems to be a very wealthy man. At least that’s what the noble red robe and the golden jewelry he’s wearing now indicate. Peli Motto (Amy Sedaris) was also briefly seen in a shot in the trailer. A scene in which a whole bunch of Kowakian lizard monkeys (known mainly as Jabba’s pets) sit in a tree also caused laughter.
The last scene is particularly interesting: Here Grogu isn’t on the road with Din, but with Bo-Katan. She says something along the lines of, “What, did you think your father was the only Mandalorian?”. The two are in a cave. Possibly Bo-Katan also wants to explore the mines. But why she has the little green rascal in tow and whether he goes with her voluntarily or whether she even takes him hostage is not entirely clear.
There is much to suggest that Bo-Katan will primarily appear as Mando’s antagonist in Season 3. Eventually, she wants to possess the Darksaber so she can finally call her the rightful leader of Mandalore.
has a start dateThe Mandalorian”Season 3 not yet. In the Star Wars Celebration it was said that the series will run next year. However, there was no specific mention of the start and it can therefore not be ruled out that the third season will appear at the end of 2022 and then run into 2023.
