The Mandalorian season three will be delayed to March 1, 2023 Lucasfilm has confirmed at the Brazil Comic Con.
This is a change from the original February release date announced at Star Wars Celebrations earlier in the year.
The Mandalorian season three will be available at the same time as season two of The Bad Batch. The only other Star Wars project to come at the same time was the release of Tales of the Jedi overlapping with one week of Andor.
Multiple weeks of The Mandalorian season three and The Bad Batch season two will overlap with each other.
Previous Star Wars shows have had their release overlapped with Marvel ones, but rarely with other Star Wars projects.
A teaser for the upcoming third season was released at the D23, showing the return to Mandalore and hinting at a conflict with Katee Sackhoff’s Bo-Katan. Other returning characters include Carl Weathers as Greef Karga and Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon.
Christopher Llyod, who plays Doctor Emmett “Doc” Brown in the Back to the Future trilogy, will make an appearance in the show, but no details have been revealed about who he will be playing.
One character who won’t be appearing in the upcoming season is Gina Carano’s Cara Dune. Gina Carano was fired by Disney in 2021 over social media posts.
This season will pick up after the events of The Book of Boba Fett, which saw Din reunite with Grogu, and get a new ship. Boba Fett hasn’t been confirmed to be in the upcoming season.
The events of The Mandalorian season three will likely feed into the upcoming Ahsoka show, which releases in late 2023. This will see Rosario Dawson play the titular character as she searches for Grand Admiral Thrawn.
The Mandalorian season three will be released on March 1, 2023 on Disney+.
