Season 3 of the hit series, The Mandalorian wrapped filming a couple of months back, but thanks to one of the series’ stars, it appears the Disney+ project is undergoing some additional filming.
Katee Sackhoff, who is returning as Bo-Katan, took to Instagram to give an apology to fans at the Fan Expo in Denver where she was supposed to make an appearance. In the video post, Sackhoff says via Bespin Bulletin, “I ended up working much, much later than anticipated on a little show that we all know and love and it made it quite difficult for me to get myself to the convention in time”, before signing off the video saying, “This is the way”.
The Star Wars site added that earlier this year they heard The Mandalorian season 3 would receive additional filming. Whether the filming is pick-ups or reshoots was unknown. It is possible the additional filming could be to add more Pedro Pascal into the series, as he was busy shooting HBO Max’s The Last of Us, which wrapped filming last month. It should be noted that Pascal’s work will mostly be comprised of voice work as Din Djarin will continue to keep the helmet on for a majority of season 3, as it has been with the previous two seasons.
The Mandalorian and Grogu are reunited and continue their journey, facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through a dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire. The series will see returning actors Giancarlo Esposito, Carl Weathers, Amy Sedaris, and Taika Waititi. Newcomers to the cast include Christopher Lloyd and Jim O’Heir.
Season 3 of The Mandalorian is set to launch exclusively on Disney+ in February 2023 and is executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. A fourth season is already in the works.
