The galaxy far, far is getting a brand-new head honcho. Throughout this year’s Mando+ panel at Star Wars Event, the group behind The Mandalorian exposed that Rick Famuyiwa now acts as an executive manufacturer for the upcoming 3rd season, which will premiere in February of 2023. Famuyiwa formerly directed 3 episodes for the program’s very first 2 seasons, having actually composed 2 of those in season 2.

Famuyiwa joins executive manufacturers Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau — presently the faces of Star Wars on Disney+ — though whether he will continue to compose and direct as Favreau and Filoni do on the upcoming 3rd season is uncertain. This isn’t Famuyiwa’s very first time around the block with executive producing either: he presently acts as executive manufacturer on The Chi, which is entering its 5th season quickly.


Very little else about the 3rd season of the hit science-fiction series was exposed, though fans at both Thursday’s Lucasfilm panel and today’s Mando+ panel were dealt with to unique video footage from the season, consisting of a take a look at the return of the atrocious Bo-Katan (Katee Sackoff), who appears to be holding an animosity versus Pedro Pascal’s Din Djarin for his ownership of the Darksaber, the ancient weapon that makes him ruler of Mandalore, homeworld of the Mandalorians. And obviously, we can anticipate the return of Grogu, who reunited with his daddy at the end of The Book of Boba Fett.

Likewise going back to the galaxy far, far are Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito as Greef Karga and Moff Gideon, both of whom likewise appeared at the Mando+ panel. Furthermore, Christopher Lloyd — yes, that Christopher Lloyd — is set to appear in a concealed function. Possibly time travel is possible among all the other marvelous things in the Star Wars universe? And perhaps we’ll see Rosario Dawson reappear as Ahsoka Tano, although she’s gotten her own spinoff series — after all, Jedi need to stick.

Lucasfilm is naturally keeping the remainder of the season under covers up until the program returns in 2023, however fan theories will definitely be plentiful, particularly provided the connections in between The Book of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian, and the method the galaxy’s most notorious fugitive hunter connected into the reunion in between Din and Grogu. However fans will simply need to wait and see.

In the meantime, the very first 2 seasons of The Mandalorian are streaming now on Disney+.
