The report notes that at the moment, stages in Los Angeles are being used for the upcoming Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series, so the plan is to wait until later this year to begin filming The Mandalorian’s third season. Collider’s report also mentions that the delay could be due to Pedro Pascal’s recent commitment to star in HBO’s The Last of Us adaptation, although that’s not been confirmed.
With The Book of Boba Fett recently wrapping production, the outlet also reports that the series is slated to be more of a closely linked spinoff series than previously thought. Sources tell the site that the upcoming Disney+ series will be more of a “The Mandalorian Season 2.5,” with characters from The Mandalorian set to appear in the series.
The Book of Boba Fett sees the return of Temuera Morrison as he reprises his fan-favorite space bounty hunter role as Boba Fett, who was last seen by Star Wars fans during the post-credits scene of the second season finale of The Mandalorian. The series will be executive produced by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, who are reportedly trying to adopt Marvel Studios’ successful MCU format.
