The future of Star Wars is looking brighter than ever thanks to The Book of Boba Fett, Ahsoka, The Acolyte, and much more. However, at the center of all the exciting upcoming projects is still The Mandalorian.
In November 2019, when Season 1 of the Disney+ series aired, fans instantly fell in love with the newly introduced Din Djarin and his companion Grogu, who was referred to at the time as "Baby Yoda." The bounty hunter turned father figure was a fresh story in the galaxy far, far away, and viewers simply couldn't get enough.
Now that the show has two seasons behind it, and a third is currently filming, news and leaks are beginning to surface. It was recently reported that the series was looking for nearly 75 Mandalorian costumes for a scene that would apparently showcase a slew of warriors answering a call from Din Djarin.
A new leaked video has recently been revealed, and this one features an unknown Mandalorian that may be new to the series.
New Mandalorian Spotted On The Mandalorian Set
Bespin Bulletin recently revealed a leaked photo and video of a new Mandalorian spotted on set for the upcoming season of The Mandalorian.

The photo and video show a fully armored Mandalorian warrior, minus his helmet, standing atop a structure on what looks to be an ice planet before climbing down a ladder.
The Return of Mandalore?
This leak, along with the report of the 75 other Mandalorian suits that were needed for a scene in the upcoming season of The Mandalorian, could suggest many things.
In season 1 of the show, Din Djarin came back to the planet of Nevarro to drop off Grogu to the client that paid him handsomely for the child. After regretting his decision, he took Grogu back and, while escaping, dozens of Mandalorians came to his aid so that he could escape the planet.
It is entirely possible for the new season of the show to feature a similar scene with all the needed Mandalorians, but it could also suggest something else - the on-screen return of Mandalore.
The homeworld of the Mandalorians has been shown in two of Star Wars' animated projects, The Clone Wars, and Rebels, but it has never been shown in live-action. Many fans have speculated that season 3 of The Mandalorian will take place there in light of Din Djarin not having to focus on taking care of Grogu anymore.
With so many Mandalorians being needed, and an actual leaked video of a new warrior on-set, the idea is possible, and even extremely likely.
