The second season of “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” has only just finished, but filming on the third season is set to begin in August, according to Production Weekly.
At last months Disney Investor Day, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy announced that “The Mandalorian” would be returning in December, leading us to believe that she was referring to the third season. However, in the post-credits scene of the finale of the second season of “The Mandalorian”, a new spin-off series called “The Book Of Boba Fett” was announced to be coming to Disney+ in December 2021.
This would seem to indicate that the third season won’t be returning in time for Christmas.
During an interview on “Good Morning America”, the shows executive producer Jon Favreau confirmed that they would be doing pre-production when “The Book Of Boba Fett” is released, and then production will start on “The Mandalorian” season 3 after they’ve finished “The Book Of Boba Fett”, which they’ve already begun work on.
Filming is also underway on the “Andor” series, with “Obi-Wan Kenobi” set to begin filming in March.
With the current Coronavirus situation, filming can still be delayed with local restrictions or a member of the cast becoming infected, resulting in a short term pause in filming.
