The wait for the third season of The Mandalorian is almost over with the recent trailer of the series particularly rich and significant.
The Mandalorian is one of the recent products of Star Wars which in a short time has entered both the hearts of the purest fans of the George Lucas universe and of neophytes. A transversal work capable of uniting generations, always looking to the past, but with your feet firmly planted in the future of the franchise. In every shot, in fact, there is a deep love towards a galactic world that unfortunately is experiencing the worst moment ever. Along with staples like Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the recent Andor, The Mandalorian it is one of the few certainties in an increasingly frayed and weak narrative cosmos. Season 2 episode 8 had left us in 2020 with a memorable twist, an unusual fate for Grogu and an ever-closer showdown for our Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal). While we await the arrival of the third season, scheduled for March 1, 2023, let’s analyze the trailer of the new episodes, already amply loaded with content and form.
Yes The rescuea possible future clash between the protagonist and Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff), a fundamentalist Mandalorian who is trying to regain control of Mandalore. Now that Djarin, having defeated Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito), is the owner of the Dark Saber, the only way Bo-Katan can get the sword is to fight our hero. Clearly, as can be seen in the trailer, the aforementioned place will have an imposing weight in the plot of the third season, with the main character who goes to Mandalore to clarify himself, once and for all, with all the various clans of Mandalorians. From what we observe, Djarin seems to fight alongside his brothers on several occasions, so we don’t know if the challenge with the warrior will be next or if it really will. One thing is certain: we will finally discover other fundamental details about the Mandalorian’s past and his planet, delving into a pivotal narrative element of the Star Wars universe.

Never forget Order 66
The explosive plot twist contained in second season finale it’s about the sudden arrival of the legendary Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), who rescues Din Djarin, then taking little Grogu as his pupil. A scene that totally shocked and galvanized Star Wars fans, ending (apparently) little Yoda’s narrative arc and at the same time bringing a Jedi to the screen for the first time in the work. We then saw, in The Book of Boba Fett, that Grogu renounces training to return to his beloved Din, a choice that perhaps will have rather important consequences. From what little can be glimpsed in the video, with an emblematic sequence showing Jedi in combat, we discover that in the third season we will see Order 66 again, or the purge of the Jedi by the Empire, from an unusual point of view . It will be curious to understand how this pivotal event in the history of the galaxy will affect the narrative of The Mandalorian and like this flashback it will dovetail with the present of the series.

The air is the battlefield
Never like in third season of The Mandalorian, the air seems to be the perfect battlefield for our heroes. In the trailer, in fact, there are several breathtaking scenes that already anticipate action and adrenaline to no end. On the one hand we observe Djarin together with his Mandalorian brothers making a rather high-sounding entrance on an unknown place (if we really have to bet, we would say Mandalore), but that’s not all. The Razor Crest, Mando’s ship, also seems particularly important to the sense of the story, with the character engaged in frantic and heated combat against the Empire in the skies of the Galaxy and also in light-speed travel. The three aerial sequences appear to be apparently disconnected, but in reality they perfectly reflect the role of the protagonist and his allies: air is the vital element of the warfare of every Mandalorian and seeing it represented from multiple perspectives is certainly not accidental .

More drama and insight
“Our people are scattered, like stars in the galaxy. What are we? What are we fighting for?“. This is the initial monologue that opens the trailer for the third season of The Mandalorian and already seems to anticipate what we are going to see in terms of tone and content. Starting from the solemn and intense words, we realize that the new episodes seem to veer towards more dramatic turns, partially abandoning that splash of lightness that we saw on and off in the first and second seasons.Seeing the meaning of the speech in detail, however, it is clear that the protagonist is increasingly aware of his origins and this implies that , within the episodes, there will probably be greater introspection of the main character who has always revealed himself to the public in a subtle and sipped way.

The evolution of Grog
The last short scene not only dilutes the dramatic tension that we felt in every single passage of the trailer, but gives us some clues about the possible evolution of Grog. We have previously clarified that the cute little green being moves away from Jedi training to return to the protagonist’s side, a road that however does not necessarily preclude the improvement of his promising skills. Precisely in this sequence we see Grogu use the Force to push, with great power, a threatening beast, without, among other things, appearing tired and weak as instead happened in previous seasons. While clearly this aspect could have simply been cut from the trailer, it is interesting to try to imagine a scenario in which the character has developed such power to master it effortlessly. After Luke’s abandonment, we don’t know if the creature has found another master or if it has trained to the point of managing the Force on its own, but we are sure that we will see a more dangerous and aware Grogu of his powers.
