Mando and Grogu certainly are a clan of two in The Mandalorian S3 teaser

An expanding Star Wars universe

Plus final Andor trailer, Bad Batch S2 delay, and animated Tales of the Jedi trailer

Disney debuted a teaser for The Mandalorian‘s third season during D23 Expo.

Disney is holding its annual D23 Expo this weekend, and which means plenty of teasers, trailers, casting news, and fun cameo appearances. The streaming platform’s Star Wars offerings this season included our first go through the third season of The Mandalorian, in addition to a final trailer for the limited series, Andor, and a trailer for a fresh animated anthology series, Tales of the Jedi.

(Spoilers below.)

We have been pining for the brand new adventures of Grogu and his Mandalorian space daddy (Pedro Pascal) since their heartfelt reunion in the finale ofThe Book of Boba Fettaka The Mandalorian season 2.5. (Din Djarin had sent Grogu off for Jedi training with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), however the bond between your two proved a lot more powerful. Sniff.) The teaser revisits a few of the highlights of the S1 and S2 adventures of the “clan of two,” before giving us a glimpse of what’s ahead.

Recall that Din broke Mandalorian protocol by firmly taking off his helmet twice: once to save lots of Grogu, as soon as to bid the adorable green baby Jedi farewell. That didn’t decrease well along with his people, particularly Katie Sackhoff’s Bo Katan and the Armourer (Emily Swallow), who insists, “You’re a Mandalorian forget about.” Bo Katan covets the Darksaber that Din won by defeating Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) in battle, which technically makes him the ruler of Mandalore.

Din seems a lot more thinking about bopping round the galaxy with Grogu than sitting on a throne, although he’s keen to obtain back to Mandalorian good graces. But I doubt he’s as keen to stop the Darksaber. The political intrigue and simmering tension suggested here should keep things interesting. We also get yourself a glimpse of a thriving Greef Carga (Carl Weathers) and Peli Motto (Amy Sedaris), who provides Mando with a fresh R2 unit for his Naboo starfighter. Not to mention, there are many battles and fancy spacecraft maneuvers.

The 3rd season of The Mandalorian will debut on Disney+ in February 2023.

Andor

Final trailer for Andor.

Meanwhile, the premiere of Andor is merely fourteen days away. As we’ve reported previously, the story begins with the Empire’s destruction of Cassian Andor’s (Diego Luna) homeworld and can depict his transformation from the “revolution-averse” cynic to a significant player in the nascent rebellion who’s ready to sacrifice himself to save lots of the galaxy.

The ensemble cast also contains Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma, a senator of the Republic who helped found the Rebel Alliance, in addition to Forest Whitaker reprising his Rogue One role as Clone Wars veteran Saw Gerrera. Stellan Skarsgrd(as Luthen) and Adria Arjona co-star because the resistance fighters who recruit Andor to the reason. Kyle Soller, Denise Gough, Fiona Shaw, Robert Emms, and David Hayman have all been cast in undisclosed roles.

We got ourfirst consider the series with a behind-the-scenes teaser in December 2020 during Disney’s Investors Day. We got a short teaser earlier this season at Star Wars Celebration, and a full trailer just last month. Luna was readily available to introduce the ultimate trailer, which features some cool new footage. We also learned the series could have a “spy thriller” vibe, filled up with “danger, deception, and intrigue”; those elements do appear to dominate this final trailer. And apparently every three episodes, the timeline will jump forward.

The initial three episodes of Andor premiere on Disney+ on September 21, 2022. The rest of the nine episodes will air weekly, concluding on November 23, 2022. Another 12-episode season will purportedly lead straight into the events of Rogue One.

THE FINAL Jedi

Trailer for the brand new animated anthology series THE FINAL Jedi.

First the bad news: if you are a fan of the Star Wars animated series The Bad Batch, the next season’s release has been delayed from September 28, 2022, to January 4, 2023. But there is also very good news: Disney+ will debut a fresh animated anthology series, THE FINAL Jedi, in its entirely on October 26, 2022. The streaming platform dropped the state trailer through the D23 Expo.

THE FINAL Jedi is in exactly the same vein as 2021’s Star Wars Visions, another anthology series made up of seven animated shorts, each developed by another Japanese anime studio. Developed by Dave Filoni and Charles Murray, each one of the six 15-minute episodes will include a fan-favorite Jedi. Some happen prior to the Clone Wars, while some are set decades before. For example, it appears like we’ll be getting Ahsoka Tano’s origin story in a single episode, while another will concentrate on Count Dooku, both section of the master line linked to Qui-on Jinn. And yes, Liam Lesson will undoubtedly be voicing the latter.
