The plan for The Mandalorian season 3 to begin filming by the end of 2020 was already promising, but the possibility of it starting this month is even better. Favreau has been confident that production shouldn’t be affected by COVID-19 due to the smaller sets and crew made possible by the Volume filming methods. However, that might not be possible with the United States continuing to post record highs in positive cases per day and the possibility of another shutdown.
If The Mandalorian season 3 does begin filming this month and move forward without too much trouble, the show should be on track to return to Disney+ in 2021. The first season occupied almost every Friday of the last two months of 2019 and season 2 is scheduled to have a similar rollout in 2020. With The Mandalorian season 2’s strong buzz, there’s no reason to believe that season 3 won’t follow suit. Lucasfilm does have the untitled Cassian Andor show starring Diego Luna set to begin production by the end of 2020 too, so both shows could be ready to go at the same time. Since The Mandalorian is a known commodity and fans expect to see a new season every year, it could arrive in late 2021 and push the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story prequel to 2022.
Of course, the start of filming on The Mandalorian season 3 will further pique the interest of fans depending on which characters are spotted. Lucasfilm has done a good job keeping surprises under wraps, but many will be anxious to know if Cobb Vanth, Boba Fett, Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson), and others could be back next season. Barring some major twist, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and The Child aka Baby Yoda will be back to lead the show, but who knows which other Star Wars characters could appear next.
