The Mandalorian Season 3 sets production start in April
According to the Film & Television Industry Alliance, Lucasfilm is currently expecting to start production on the highly-anticipated third season of The Mandalorian on April 5, 2021, in Los Angeles. This news comes after more than two months since the popular Star Wars series concluded its 8-episode second season.
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
Pedro Pascal (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) stars as a lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy and is joined by Gina Carano (Deadpool) who plays Cara Dune, a former Rebel Shock Trooper, having trouble re-integrating herself into society.; and Carl Weathers as Greef, a man who heads a guild of bounty hunters that hires The Mandalorian for a specific job.
The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, with guest stars Gina Carano, Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito. Showrunner Jon Favreau serves as executive producer along with Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson, with Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck serving as co-executive producers.
The directing lineup for Season 2 consisted of Robert Rodriguez (Alita: Battle Angel), Peyton Reed, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Dave Filoni, Carl Weathers, and Jon Favreau.
Following the success of The Mandalorian, Lucasfilm currently has three Star Wars projects lined up for Disney+. This includes: The Book of Boba Fett starring Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen; Ahsoka starring Rosario Dawson; and The Rangers of the New Republic.
