With The Book of Boba Fett finished and all episodes streaming on Disney+, the Mandalorian Universe is now fully underway. Star Wars is taking a Marvel-like approach to the streaming service, where multiple shows will frequently crossover with one another. The first of those events happened in the second half of The Book of Boba Fett when viewers saw Pedro Pascal's Din Djarin aid Temuera Morrison's Boba Fett against the Pyke Syndicate.
Din Djarin seems to be the core of what Disney and Lucasfilm want to build the future of the franchise around. Shortly after Boba Fett and Rosario Dawson's Ahsoka appeared in Season 2 of The Mandalorian, their own spin-off shows were announced.
Rangers of the New Republic was another spin-off series that was previously in the works, but at this time, that show is canceled. However, another series could possibly take its place, and theories have already begun swirling that Katee Sackhoff's Bo-Katan Kryze could work as the lead character. Next up on the MandoVerse list, however, is Season 3 of The Mandalorian. It is currently filming and is expected to release sometime at the end of 2022.
While fans eagerly await the May 25 premiere of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Disney has put out a new trailer for The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett.
Disney+ Reveals New MandoVerse Trailer
Disney+ recently released a new trailer via Twitter promoting both seasons of The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. The trailer consists of short clips from different episodes throughout the two shows:
The trailer offers glimpses of multiple characters, such as Din Djarin, Boba Fett, Fennec Shand, Cobb Vanth, and Grogu.
Most notably, the voiceover in the trailer says "the story continues in The Book of Boba Fett," teasing that the Mandalorian Universe will be an ongoing story across multiple projects.
The full trailer can be seen below:

This is Just the Beginning
When looking at just the story of Din Djarin, it seems as though his story is pretty well along. After two seasons of The Mandalorian and most of the back half of The Book of Boba Fett being dedicated to him, he is clearly the central character. While it is unclear how many seasons Disney and Lucasfilm plan on having for The Mandalorian, there are still many years between where the story is now and the start of the sequel trilogy.
Season 3 will most likely dive into the history of Mandalore, and feature Din on his quest to be renewed so that he can be the ruler of the planet and its people. Episode 5 of The Book of Boba Fett gave viewers a front-seat view of The Night of A Thousand Tears, which was when the Empire destroyed a large portion of the planet, teasing that the story would be going back there sooner rather than later.
Now that Din has aided Boba Fett, they no longer owe anything to each other. However, their relationship has been building each time they are on-screen together, and instead of owing favors to one another, it seems as though they are developing a relationship where they can call on each other at any time.
Din has also formed a relationship with Ahsoka, and they likely haven't seen the last of each other. When it comes to Bo-Katan and her faction of Mandalorians, it is up in the air whether she is on good terms with Din or not, seeing as how he is in possession of the Darksaber, a relic that she wanted for herself.
At this time, there hasn't been any confirmation on if the spin-off shows will run for multiple seasons, or if they will just act as miniseries. The Book of Boba Fett ended with multiple characters on Tatooine that could definitely factor into the story sometime in the future. As a whole, it is safe to say that the MandoVerse is just beginning, and the interconnected story will only expand as it goes forward.
Seasons 1 and 2 of The Mandalorian and all episodes of The Book of Boba Fett are now streaming on Disney+.
