The Mandalorian is almost over and Lucasfilm shocked fans with three historic Star Wars cameos in the latest episode.
Jack Black, Lizzo, and Christopher Lloyd all made their Mando appearance in “Chapter 22: Guns for Hire,” the latest episode from Disney:
In a wild turn of events, the third to last episode of season three introduced a battle droid-filled adventure that saw Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) and Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) solve a planetary issue on Plazir-15.
The all new planet introduced to every Star Wars fan Commissioner Helgait (Christopher Lloyd), Captain Bombardier (Jack Black), and The Duchess (Lizzo).
The cameos, unsurprisingly, caught every fan off guard:
With two episodes to go, showrunner Dave Filoni and executive producer Dave Filoni are bottling up the big reveal of Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) and the ex-Empire’s grand plan to completely uproot the New Republic.
Could the droid malfunction on Plazir-15 somehow be a plant from Moff Gideon to create a droid army for the future First Order, or was this a subplot to solely introduce a new force in the galaxy that could come to the aid of Mandalore in a future installment?

Only Lucasfilm knows what’s next for Christopher Lloyd and crew’s Star Wars characters, but fans can’t wait to see what’s in store for the season finale – especially with Bo-Katan gaining the Darksaber from Din Djarin.
