'The Mandalorian' S3 teaser: Battle between Mando, armored warriors awaits
The Mandalorian is all geared up to take us on a new adventure with the third season and also to remind us how adorable Grogu is! Disney+ unveiled the first teaser trailer at the D23 Expo to give a glimpse into the popular Star Wars series. Season 3 of The Mandalorian is expected to drop sometime in 2023. Here's a look at the teaser.
Why does this story matter?
- The third season follows up on the events from the 2021 miniseries The Book of Boba Fett, which featured Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) in a cameo.
- Toward the end, Grogu, aka Baby Yoda, returned to Djarin after he had gone away to train with the Jedi Master—Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).
- Djarin then left Tatooine with Grogu to regain his honor as a Mandalorian again.
Mando's quest to regain his honor has many obstacles ahead
When Djarin, aka the Mandalorian or "Mando" (Pascal), set out on his quest to explore "the living waters," it was evident that this journey to regain his honor would be no easy feat. To make matters worse, the Armorer (Emily Swallow) hauntingly tells him, "You are a Mandalorian no more." The teaser trailer also hinted at a battle between Mando and the armored warriors.
