Favreau must know that fans of the Disney+ original series, The Mandalorian, need some cheering up and some reassurance in these uncertain and wearisome times. Although the premiere of season two of The Mandalorian is still half a year away, fans will be relieved to find out that season three is already in the pre-production stages. According to Variety, Jon Favreau (the creator of the hit Disney+ original series) revealed that he has been “writing season three for a while.” Not only has the writing begun, but the production of concept art for season three is in the works as well. Fans who find themselves theorizing about the second installment of The Mandalorian better hold onto their seats because there’s about to be even more room for theorizing and hypothesizing.
According to Variety, The Mandalorian’s “production design department began working on season three on April 20,” giving them plenty of time to perfect the set of The Mandalorian before any filming begins.
Production of season two of The Mandalorian officially wrapped up in early March, dodging the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent quarantine by a hair’s length. As of right now, the release date for season two is still in October.
Are you finding out that you simply cannot wait that long for more Mandalorian-related content? Don’t even fret, because a docuseries revolving around this Disney+ original series will soon be released on May 4, colloquially known as Star Wars Day (‘May the fourth be with you’). The documentary will consist of eight episodes to correspond with the eight episodes of the original series. Although viewers have barely seen a glimpse of what lies behind the beskar helmet, they now have a chance to see the entirety of what lies behind the curtain of the special effects needed to create the world of The Mandalorian.
The trailer reveals the talented film crew and the talented actors who make this story and this world come to life. The choreography of the combat scenes alone is enough to steal the fans’ breath away! Not only that, but fans will finally get a chance to see the intricate puppetry needed in order to bring the beloved Baby Yoda (as colloquially dubbed by fans) to life. Oh, and spoiler alert: he’s just as cute behind the scenes!
The world of Star Wars is iconic for its creative set, costumes and creature design, and The Mandalorian is no different. It seems that the original series has remained loyal to the fanbase (who has remained loyal to Star Wars for decades), and has refrained from using effects like that of George Lucas’s remastered films. However, the fans will only find out once the docuseries is released!
