Ever since the Mandalorian acquired the Darksaber from Moff Gideon, one other showdown was inevitable. Bo-Katan Kryze believed she was destined to take possession of the saber however, alas, she did not. And within the third season of The Mandalorian, it is going to be a difficulty. “You did not suppose you’d do away with me that straightforward, did you?” actress Katee Sackhoff mentioned as she took the stage at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, “I could have some unfinished enterprise.”
sackhoff was there to pump up the truth that she’s returning for The Mandalorian season three, and co-creators Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni performed a fast trailer of the season during which Bo-Katan was featured prominently. The trailer won’t be launched on-line—as a result of the present would not debut till subsequent yr—however io9 was there, and right here what we noticed.
We see Mando (Pedro Pascal) strolling towards a bunch of jagged rocks. The Armorer (Emily Swallow), in voiceover, speaks. “You’ve eliminated your helmet. What’s worse, you did so of your individual free will. You’re not Mandalorian.” As this occurs, we see her, in addition to Mando and Grogu, strolling right into a cave. There is a gentle on Grogu’s pram, “Redemption is not potential for the reason that destruction of our homeward,” she continues.
Subsequent we see Bo-Katan in a big, ornate stone room. She’s sitting on a well-carved, lengthy, virtually stone sofa. “Your cult gave up on Mandalore lengthy earlier than the purge,” she says to Mando, with venom in her supply. “The place have been you then?” A montage of photographs follows, together with caninefights with Mando’s new ship, Grogu sitting up entrance with him, and an overhead glimpse of a number of Mandalorians on a mission.
Then a vivid metropolis. Nearly Gondor from Lord of the Rings vivid, and a bunch of Kowakian monkey-lizards are hanging collectively on a tree. Mando stands underneath the tree, subsequent to a fountain, and Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) comes out in model new crimson robes. “I heard you have been again, however I did not consider it,” he says, Greetings Mando. It looks as if he is in some type of place of energy. Then, in a fast montage we see a brand new character performed by Saturday Evening Dwell alum Tim Meadows, Physician Pershing ,Omid Abtahi, and Carson TevaHyung Lee), the latter of to whom appears to have been promoted from X-Wing pilot. Additionally, a number of new droids right here and there too.
“I’ll Mandalore in order that I could also be forgiven for my transgressions,” says Mando. Then a montage of extra ships, extra dogfighting, Physician Pershing strolling on some type of basein addition to plenty of totally different photographs of Bo-Katan issues—in particular person, by way of a starship, and so forth. After which in a cave, Bo-Katan shoots a wall in entrance of Grogu. It crumbles down, she turns to him and says, “Did you suppose your dad was the one Mandalorian?”
You’ll be able to gleam a number of issues from the footage, most of them reasonably telegraphed from the final episodes of the present in addition to the more moderen Mando-themed episodes of The Guide of Boba Fett, First, Bo-Katan has an enormous position right here and may even be the primary antagonist. Second, plenty of Physician Pershing, so possibly we study extra about Grogu’s talents. And third, the story teased on The Guide of Boba Fett, of how Mando should go to Mandalore to be redeemed, seems like the first storyline. Or so we predict from this 60 or so second tease.
The Mandalorian season three has completed filming and shall be on Disney+ in 2023.
