Disney+ releases new poster and featurette for The Mandalorian season 3

The adventures of Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal of The Last of Us) will soon return as Disney+ released a new poster and featurette for the third installment of The Mandalorian. The poster features The Mandalorian wielding the Darksaber on top of his spaceship, while the footage highlights the show as a global phenomenon.

After two seasons, The Mandalorian is the most popular Star Wars series on Disney+. The third season’s trailer registered 83.5 million views within its first 24 hours, the most ever for a Lucasfilm show, shattering the record previously held by Obi-Wan Kenobi with 58 million views. Even series creator Jon Favreau (Iron Man) admits that the show has taken on a life of its own, something he greatly appreciates.

Season 3 will pick up after The Mandalorian reunited with Grogu in The Book of Boba Fett. Now, The Mandalorian will travel across the galaxy to his home planet of Mandalore to reunite with old allies and seek forgiveness for removing his helmet. Characters set to reappear in season 3 include Peli Motto (The Lion King’s Amy Sedaris), Greef Karga (Rocky’s Carl Weathers), The Armorer (SEAL Team’s Emily Swallow), Moff Gideon (Better Call Saul’s Giancarlo Esposito), and Bo-Katan Kryze (Star Wars: The Clone Wars’s Katee Sackhoff)

Favreau returns as showrunner alongside Dave Filoni (The Clone Wars). The directorial lineup in season 3 features Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), and Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World Dominion).

Coming off its game-changing second episode, The Mandalorian season 3 has returned this week with one of the Disney+ show’s strangest and most surprising installments to date. Picking up after the events of last week’s The Mines of Mandalore, episode 3 of The Mandalorian season 3 spends its runtime following not only Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff) and Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), but also Dr. Pershing (Omid Abtahi) and Elia Kane (Katy M. O'Brian), two supporting figures from the show’s past seasons.

The episode, titled The Convert, splits its focus between those two storylines. As a result, The Mandalorian’s latest installment raises new questions about the future of Mandalore itself, as well as the fragile, quietly unnerving bureaucratic state of the galaxy’s New Republic.

In The Mines of Mandalore, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) follows through on the promise he made in The Mandalorian’s season 3 premiere. The second chapter of the Disney+ series’ long-awaited third season follows Din and Grogu as they embark on a dangerous journey first to the surface of Mandalore and then into the sundered planet’s underground tunnels and mines. Along the way, Din ends up in a deadly situation that only Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) is able to rescue him from.

In case all of that wasn’t enough, episode 2 of The Mandalorian season 3 also ends with a revelation that raises a number of exciting new possibilities for the show’s future. With that in mind, here are five questions we’re dying to have answered after The Mandalorian season 3 episode 2.
