Sadly, the adventure and thriller drama The Mandalorian is not coming anytime soon and surely not in March 2022. The filming for the third season started in October 2021, which was late enough for it to release in early 2022. The restrictions due to the pandemic and the lead Pedro Pascal being busy with another project named The Last of Us has been partially responsible for the delay of the release of The Mandalorian Season 3.
This delay means a huge gap between the second and third seasons, and the fans hope the third season will release sooner. For the time, it is roughly assumed that season three of The Mandalorian will release by the ending months of 2022. The show has a good IMDb rating of 8.8 and is loved by fans worldwide. The show was first released in 2019 with 8 episodes for the first season.
Pedro Pascal in The Book of Boba Fett
The appearance of Pedro Pascal, who plays the lead in The Mandalorian, appeared in the fifth episode of The Book of Boba Fett, leaving Mandalorian fans in confusion if it’s a hint that The Mandalorian is releasing its third season anytime soon.
The appearance of Mandalorian in The Book of Boba Fett was expected to be a cameo. Still, to everyone’s surprise, the whole episode focused on Mandalorian and Grogu, and Boba Fett appeared only for a few seconds.
The episode shows the Mandalorian exploring around the almost built Jedi school, which upsets Grogu’s trainer CGI Luke Skywalker as it was against the principles of his school for his students to get attached to anyone Mandalorian uniting with Grogu meant a disruption in his lessons.
The Book of Boba Fett should have focused more on Boba Fett as the central character, but the Mandalorian-centric episode surprised everyone but in a good way. After all, who would not love a Mando-Grogu union!
The Storyline of The Mandalorian
It is a story about a hunter (The Mandalorian) who adventures in places far away from the New Republic and its authority. The story of The Mandalorian is set 10 years after the civil war ended. The civil war took place between the Empire and the Rebel forces in which the rebel forces defeated the Empire, which resulted in the foundation process of the New Republic.
Things were still not peaceful after the war, and there were still factors that created disruptions. The Mandalorians are, in general, warriors whose sole aim is an adventure and fighting for the good. Reasons why Jango Fett, his clown son Boba Fett and Din Djarin have similarities. According to the maker, Jon Favreau, ‘The Mandalorian will explore some of the roots of the First Order’.
The Mandalorian is the first of its kind for the Star War as an adventure thriller series and not a movie. Star Wars trying its hands-on series and taking the plot in an interesting direction is what the fans are hoping for, starting with the brand-new season of The Mandalorian.
What to Watch Before Watching The Mandalorian?
Before watching The Mandalorian, the viewers can try watching The Empire Strikes Back of the 1980s, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, The Mandalore Plot, The Lawless, Duchess of Mandalore, Eminence, Corruption and Shades of Reason, to name a few. Also, comic lovers can read the Star Wars comic series and read comic number 68 of 1983, which is about the backstory of Boba Fett and how he protected Mandalore.
Watching the Mandalore alone can be fun as the story doesn’t leave you with many unanswered questions that need to be searched for in any comics and series or movies. But enthusiast viewers can always go for the other Star Wars movies to find a link and to learn more.
