Filming on the third season of “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” is currently paused due to a rise in COVID-19 cases in the Los Angeles area due to the Omicron variant for the safety of the show’s cast and crew members.
According to Bespin Bulletin, filming was set to resume last week after the holiday break, but now production has been put onto standby, with no set date for it to resume.
The third season of “The Mandalorian” began filming back in October, and filming has continued without Pedro Pascal, who has been filming the HBO Max series “The Last Of Us”.
Since the majority of the time, Pascal’s character, Din Djarin, is hidden under his Mandalorian helmet, so he just needs to do voice over work and a possible return to the set once production on “The Last Of Us” ends, for some filming. Filming on “The Last Of Us” restarted recently, following a break for the holidays.
“The Mandalorian” spin-off series, “The Book Of Boba Fett”, is currently being released on Disney+ and has been branded “The Mandalorian” season 2.5, since it builds on the events from the second season of “The Mandalorian”. Two more live-action series are due to arrive on Disney+ later this year, including “Kenobi” and “Andor”.
The third season of “The Mandalorian” isn’t expected to arrive on to Disney+ until late 2022 or possibly early 2023. It’s not likely that this delay to restarting film will impact too much on when the series is released on Disney+.
Jon Favreau began work on the third season of “The Mandalorian” a while ago, and filming on the third season is due to end in March, when production is expected to shift over to another series, “Ashoka”.
The first two seasons of “The Mandalorian” are available on Disney+ now.
