While Star Wars fans wait patiently for Obi-Wan Kenobi’s release this May, at the end of the year will return to Lucasfilm’s flagship Disney+ series, The Mandalorian. The show’s third season is currently prepping for its debut near the end of 2022, as Mando and the team get set for another wild intergalactic adventure through the galaxy far, far away.
Season 3 officially finished filming at the end of March 2022 as it looks to take the excitement to new levels - a tall order following a Season 2 finale featuring Luke Skywalker's Disney+ debut. This also comes after Mando’s surprisingly big role in The Book of Boba Fett, after which the hero is wielding the Darksaber and set to take on stronger enemies than ever.
Pedro Pascal will lead the way in front of another all-star cast of supporting characters - one which now includes Back To The Future icon Christopher Lloyd. On top of that, a veteran actress recently confirmed that she’ll be back for more Mando action after appearing in both Season 1 and Season 2.
Misty Rosas Joins Mando Season 3
Rosas posted a selfie where she wears a shirt that says “The Mandalorian Season 3” on it, confirming her role in the show.
While Rosas hasn’t appeared on-screen as herself, she provided the physical performances of two different characters. The actress was on set to play Nick Nolte’s Kuill in multiple chapters from Season 1 as well as the Frog Lady from “Chapter 5: The Gunslinger.”
A New Role in The Mandalorian’s Next Season?
Major Hollywood franchises like Star Wars are no strangers to using physical actors on set to indicate where CGI-developed characters will come into play in post-production. This also happens in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, in which Sean Gunn acts as the on-set Rocket before the tiny murderous rodent is thrown into the movie at a later date.
Having brought Kuill and the Frog Lady to life in five chapters from The Mandalorian Season 1, seeing Rosas back to help bring another CGI character to life is an exciting development. That being said, there is absolutely no way to tell who or what she did the motion capture for in Season 3, especially with her first two roles being so vastly different.
Rosas most likely plays another new supporting character that Mando meets on his next adventure, although it's tough to say how substantial the character will be in the grand scheme of Season 3. With more Jedi-centric stories coming into play along with the reported return of Bo-Katan's group of Mandalorians, Lucasfilm looks to be leaving nothing on the table with its heroes and villains alike.
The Mandalorian Season 3 is set to begin streaming on Disney+ in late 2022.
