If you’re a fan of The Mandalorian, there’ s great news for you: the series could be back for Season 3 on Disney’s streaming service. According to the information provided by Variety, Jon Favreau, the creator of the series, has already started working on the scenarios for this potential third season. Sources also indicate to our American colleagues that the art department has started working on concept art and that pre-production has already started.
While we are waiting for this possible renewal, the series should make its return next October on Disney+. Of course, this could change if post-production is heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Star Wars: a series focusing on female characters?
Disney, eager to capitalize on the success of The Mandalorian or Clone Wars, would have decided to work on a new series to expand the Star Wars universe. Thus, according to Variety‘s information, the company with the big round ears would have decided to develop a series focusing on female characters. Although the exact plot is not known, the American media specifies that this series should take place within a different chronology from those of the movies or The Mandalorian.
To oversee this project, Disney Plus has called on Leslye Headland, to whom we owe Russian Doll. A series nominated thirteen times at the Emmy Awards for its first season. Leslye Headland will work as a scriptwriter and showrunner for this new series.
Two other live-action series are currently in development at Disney+: one around the character of Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), the other focusing on the character of Cassian Andor (Diego Luna).
