Get ready for The Mandalorian season 3 behind-the-scenes content.
Disney+ announced that Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian will return with “The Making Of The Mandalorian Season 3.” The behind-the-scenes special will be released on June 28.
Season 1 of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian featured eight episodes (ranging from 19-38 minutes) that explored different aspects of the series, including directing, casting, and the cutting-edge Volume technology. The episodes showcased behind-the-scenes footage and roundtable discussions that shed more light on how The Mandalorian season 1 was created.
For The Mandalorian season 2, the Disney Gallery only featured two episodes. The first episode was titled “Making of Season 2” and was a behind-the-scenes overview for almost the entire season, and at 69 minutes it was substantially longer than any episode from the previous season. The second episode was titled “Making of Season 2 Finale” and largely focused on how the series pulled off the stunning inclusion of a young Luke Skywalker.
The first look at season 3 shows Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Carson Teva when he flew his X-Wing to find the Mandalorian covert in “Chapter 21: The Pirate.”
Since the announcement refers to the new season as a special, there may just be one super-sized episode covering the whole season as opposed to numerous episodes breaking down various aspects of the series.
As for what viewers can expect to see, the Volume will definitely continue to be showcased. Seeing how the Volume was used to create the epic battle between the Mandalorians and the Imperial remnant in the season 3 finale would be particularly intriguing to see, along with how the Volume brought New Republic-era Coruscant to life.
Viewers are also sure to see the cast and crew doting on the adorable Grogu puppet. Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rachel Morrison, Lee Isaac Chung, and Carl Weathers will likely share their perspective on the show’s story and characters through their respective contributions as showrunner, writers, or directors
Cast members will hopefully be featured as well. Particularly since Din Djarin never showed his face in season 3, it would be most welcome to see Pedro Pascal. Katee Sackhoff is also a must considering how prominent Bo-Katan Kryze was in season 3.
Actors whose roles were expanded from previous seasons should also be highlighted, including Lee (Carson Teva), Weathers (Greef Karga), Emily Swallow (the Armorer), Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon), Katy O’Brian (Elia Kane), and Omid Abtahi (Dr. Pershing). The guest stars from “Chapter 22: Guns for Hire” need to be included as well, giving Christopher Lloyd, Jack Black, and Lizzo the chance to talk about being in Star Wars.
June 28 is a great time for the special to release given the 2023 schedule for Star Wars television. After four straight months of a new Bad Batch or Mandalorian episode dropping every Wednesday, and Visions season 2 and Young Jedi Adventures releasing on May the 4th, there is now a lull in Star Wars television releases. Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian gives fans something new to look forward to watching while waiting for the next television series–Ahsoka–to debut in August.
