With The Mandalorian Season 3 set to premiere in February 2023, fans at Star Wars Event got to have a taste of simply what may follow for Mando aka Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and his clan of 2 with Grogu. After winning the darksaber off of Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) last season, Din at first provided it to Bo-Katan Kryze, played by Katee Sackhoff, who had actually been seeking it in order to recover the Mandalorian throne, however she declined it.
The brand-new trailer for Season 3 shows a conflicted Bo, who we see resting on the throne of Mandalore and likewise communicating with infant Grogu. Bo-Katan, for the unaware, has rather a complex history. Previously in her life, prior to the fall of Mandalore, she belonged of a terrorist group called Death Watch that opposed her sis, Duchess Satine Kryze’s pacifist position. After being banished, she crossed courses with Darth Maul and his sibling Savage Opress, assisting him to both topple her sis and likewise then changing sides to assist the Jedi retake the city.
Bo’s sis Satine has actually typically been a topic of much fan speculation, mainly due to her love with Obi-Wan Kenobi which echoes Anakin Skywalker’s own relationship with Padmé. Kenobi was so taken with Satine that he informs her, in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, that had she asked him, he would have left the Jedi order for her. Provided Bo-Katan’s own complex relationship with her sis, Collider needed to ask Sackhoff if we might potentially see a more youthful Satine in Bo’s memories or in a flashback.
“There is such a wealth of story to pull from. I don’t write the show so I don’t know if we’re going to see any of that,” Sackhoff responded. However she elaborated on Bo-Katan’s frame of mind entering into Season 3. “Bo had a very clear goal last season, and she didn’t take the Darksaber. I think that surprised a lot of people. So, obviously, she is second-guessing herself.”
With the trailer exposing that we will see Mandalore, or rather the ashes of Mandalore, we asked Sackhoff what it resembled to see the city in live-action after voicing Bo-Katan for a lot of years in the animated series.
“Seeing Mandalore again was something that, as a person who loves this character, the weight of that was not lost on me,” Sackhoff addressed.
Although it’s clear from the unique trailer that Bo-Katan will have dispute with Din Djarin, it’s likewise unclear how long that will last and whether she will sign up with the battle and side with Mando. We do get clips of her with Grogu, which might possibly soften her heart a bit, however till next year, we’ll let our creativities cut loose.
The Mandalorian Season 3 will premiere in February 2023.
