‘The Mandalorian’ Season 3 Trailer Has My Heart in a Death Grip
Just when the adventures of Grogu and Din Djarin felt like a million miles away, the new trailer for season 3 has landed and I’m crying over my clan of two. The Mandalorian season 3 is coming, and with it are all my tears because it’s perfect. While the trailer screened at Star Wars Celebration, it has been a long time since that first showing and fans have yet to see the full trailer.
Now it’s here, it’s glorious, and seeing Din still love his son and be the clan of two we’ve wanted them to be is incredible. Even if everything doesn’t seem perfect on the Bo-Katan and Mando front. Here’s The Mandalorian season 3 trailer, explained.
The return to Mandalore
The trailer finds Din still in the cult-ish world of extreme Mandalorian-ism, something that Bo-Katan calls out in the trailer. He’s dedicated to becoming what he deems a “Mandalorian” again after taking his helmet off to save Grogu, and then again to say goodbye to him. He was shamed for it in The Book of Boba Fett, so seeing him explore his own definition of what a Mandalorian actually is will be a fascinating move for season 3.
A clan of two
Grogu and Din have had the journey since season 2 ended. We thought that Grogu would be with Luke Skywalker training for quite a while but instead, he quickly returned to his space dad. The two were inextricably attached to each other, which is why Din was so willing to take his helmet off to protect his son. Season 3 finds the two reunited and traveling the galaxy together, with more adventures to come.
Fight for the throne
The trailer gives us Bo-Katan on a throne, despite not having the Darksaber, which Din won in his battle against Moff Gideon. Still, Bo-Katan seems to be in charge, and Din doesn’t seem all that interested in challenging her. But the question remains: will they fight over possession of the Darksaber this season? I don’t think Bo-Katan is just fine with not being the ruler of Mandalore, but there is a lot going on in this trailer, and we’re excited to learn more about Bo-Katan as a character and her dynamic with Din.
The Mandalorian season 3 is heading our way in 2023 and it’s going to be interesting to see how this works out for Din, Grogu, Bo-Katan, and all of our faves.
