Pedro Pascal has been a busy man the past few months. From spending over a year filming The Last of Us, to attending Star Wars Celebration and D23 Expo for The Mandalorian, Pascal has done it all. Pedro recently paid a visit to The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon while promoting The Last Of Us, and unsurprisingly, Jimmy Fallon did his best to get Pedro to spill the beans on Season 3.
Skirting around questions that can lead him to spoiling the suspense has been an art the actor has perfected. However, he did give some idea of what fans can expect once the show premieres on March 1st. Jimmy Fallon asked Pedro if he can tell fans about Season 3. Pedro answered that “there will be more Mandalorians”, which doesn’t come as much of a surprise because the trailer has shown us a much larger number of Mandalorians than previous seasons have. Pedro then said that there will be a “big, epic battle. Plural, maybe.” This is the part that fans can sink their teeth into. Will the battle or battles involve Mandalorians fighting each other, or fighting their enemies?
Fighting each other is something Mandalorians are all guilty of and it has led to their destruction as a whole. Pedro also offered a glimpse into what Grogu will be up to in Season 3 when he revealed that the little green guy is “still learning, teaching. Protected, protecting.” Pedro didn’t reveal much apart from this, but it goes along with what we know so far. Grogu is definitely in the process of learning about the force, he’s being protected by Din, and he’s also protecting Din. Grogu has been protecting Din since season 1, Chapter 2, when he stopped a Mudhorn from attacking his father. This is something that has continued all the way to The Book of Boba Fett when Grogu protected Din from Boba Fett’s Rancor.
Both father and son will have plenty on their hands in Season 3. Din has a Darksaber he needs to learn how to wield, and then perhaps a whole planet he needs to rule over. Grogu has to learn how to balance his Jedi powers with his status as a Mandalorian foundling.
Fans have only one job, however, and that’s to sit back and enjoy the ride. It’s not much longer now until the adventures of Din and Grogu return. The Mandalorian Season 3 premieres Wednesday, March 1st only on Disney+.
