During Monday night’s NFL playoff game, Lucasfilm showed the season three trailer for The Mandalorian and introduced a few directors who had never worked on the show before.
On this season of The Mandalorian, the directors include returning director Rick Famuyiwa, Black Panther cinematographer Rachel Morrison, Minari director Lee Isaac Chung, Mandalorian actor Carl Weathers, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse director Peter Ramsey, and returning Mando director Bryce Dallas Howard.
The main character, played by Pedro Pascal, goes around the galaxy with Grogu (AKA Baby Yoda). He works with Katee Sackhoff, Carl Weathers, Amy Sedaris, Emily Swallow, and Giancarlo Esposito. The logline says, “As the Mandalorian and Grogu continue their journey together, they will run into old friends and make new ones.”
Jon Favreau is back as the showrunner, along with Dave Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa, Colin Wilson, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is in charge of Lucasfilm. Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck are both in charge of making the show.
When Disney+ came out in November 2019, The Mandalorian was the first show on it, and it quickly became its most popular show. Season two aired in late 2020 and led to several spinoffs, like The Book of Boba Fett last year and Ahsoka, which will be led by Rosario Dawson.
The third season of The Mandalorian starts on March 1.
