Disney presented a teaser trailer for the third season of The Mandalorian at its D23 event on Saturday. While no one has an exact date for when the series will be on-air on Disney Plus, the streamer previously stated it will premiere in February 2023.
Disney released season two in 2020, leaving those who completed the first two seasons shelving a whole two years to catch more adorable scenes with Grogu or Baby Yoda. But you’ll likely desire to check in with the spin-off The Book of Boba Fett if you wish to know what’s going on, as in The Mandalorian, Grogu and the Mandalorian was last seen saying goodbye to one another. However, in this trailer, they seem to be a united family once again.
It is the first glimpse at the show’s upcoming third season. It reveals not only Pedro Pascal’s title character, The Mandalorian, and his Force-using charge, but other familiar characters like Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan, Carl Weathers as Greef Karga, Omid Abtahi as Dr. Pershing, Emily Swallow as The Armorer, and Amy Sedaris as Peli Motto.
In addition to The Mandalorian, Disney also offered a trailer of the new Andor series at D23, which strikes Disney Plus on September 21. It knocked the animated Tales of the Jedi and revealed a January 4, 2023 release date for season two of The Bad Batch. We also expect two new live-action Star Wars series in 2023: Skeleton Crew and Ahsoka. And we got the first trailer— not a teaser —for Willow, another Lucasfilm production.
The Mandalorian, an American space western television series, is designed by Jon Favreau for the streaming service Disney+. It is the live-action series in the Star Wars franchise, starting five years after the affairs of Return of the Jedi (1983), and features Pedro Pascal as the title character, a lone bounty hunter who reaches on the run to save “The Child.”
Star Wars originator George Lucas had started developing a live-action Star Wars television series by 2009, but this project was considered too expensive to produce. Instead, he sold Lucasfilm to Disney in October 2012. Henceforth, work on a new Star Wars series started for Disney+. Favreau signed on in March 2018, functioning as a writer and showrunner. He executive delivers alongside Kathleen Kennedy, Dave Filoni, and Colin Wilson.

Industrial Light & Magic developed StageCraft technology for the series, the visual effects company, using virtual locations and a 360-degree video wall to complete the series’ environments. It has since been adopted by other film and television productions.
