Star wars fans are eagerly awaiting the third season of the hugely popular Lucasfilm The Mandalorian. What started as an action-packed bounty hunter story in 2019 has now grown into a huge Star wars event with the second season of popular showrunner Jon Favreau’s series cementing itself firmly in the wider Star wars universe.
The Mandalorian Season 3 is seemingly a long way off, at least if Din Djarin actor Pedro Pascal’s words are anything to go by, but a new update has just been released regarding the upcoming season.
Favreau The Mandalorian welcomed a new cast of characters in the Star wars universe. Taking place five years later Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983), the Bounty Hunter series introduced the world to the titular Mandalorian of Pascal and “Baby Yoda” AKA Grogu as a new hit Star wars duo. Other new characters like Cara Dune (Gina Carano), Greef Karga (Carl Weathers), Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) and Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) also made their debuts.
While The Mandalorian was the vehicle in which this new distribution made its big Star wars entry, the second season was not opposed to bringing back some old favorites. Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) has returned, as have Jedi Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) and Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff). And then to cap off an already meteoric season, the famous Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) brought the Star wars Universe’s most shocking cameo when he returned in the Season 2 finale.
The Mandalorian the momentum is sure to continue in the upcoming season 3, especially after their Emmy nominations. But it can still take a while – as we mentioned earlier, Pascal himself has said that filming for the next season has yet to begin. However, new information has just made its way into the galaxy.
Speak American filmmaker, The Mandalorian Season 3 has just caught on. Discussing the specific technology used by some upcoming TV shows, the article quietly revealed that “The Mandalorian is in production.
Although neither The Walt Disney Company nor Lucasfilm have confirmed this to be the case, the report by the cinematographer in the United States carries weight when examining the other information they have provided.
Shows that planned to exploit the in-camera visual effects from the start include two that will be shot using StageCraft, Industrial Light & Magic’s real-time animation pipeline for LED volumes: -Wan Kenobi, slated for release in 2022. Both series will use the same volume originally built for The Mandalorian in Manhattan Beach, California.
They even add that another Star wars The show will receive the ILM – Industrial Light & Magic – treatment.
Other Star Wars shows, including Andor, are in production at Pinewood Studios in England, where ILM built another large StageCraft volume.
For the context:
Founded by George Lucas, ILM is the world’s leading effects facility, with studios located in San Francisco, Singapore, Vancouver, London and Sydney. The company serves the film, television, streaming, commercial production and attraction industries. ILM has created visual effects for over 350 feature films.

What is the sequel to Star wars?
While Star wars fans are hoping for a 2022 release for The Mandalorian Season 3 certainly isn’t locked even with this production start-up report. That being said, as the American filmmaker alludes to, Boba’s book Fett arrives and is sure to itch the itch of fans wanting another dose of intense, gritty bounty hunter action. The Boba Fett series premieres in December and pairs the titular bounty hunter with Wen’s Fennec Shand.
Then there’s Deborah Chow’s Obi wan kenobi which sees Ewan McGregor returning as the famous Jedi Knight and – if this report is anything to say – will also star a young Princess Leia. Andor brings Cassien Andor back to Star wars Universe, and then there’s the rest of Lucasfilm’s gigantic slate that includes shows like Ahsoka, Lando, and Star Wars: Visions.
