The anticipation surrounding The Mandalorian Season 3 is high, especially after a mind-blowing and emotional Season 2 finale.
The finale featured the much-talked-about return of Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker while also showcasing the bittersweet goodbye between Pedro Pascal's Din Djarin and Baby Yoda aka Grogu. The split between the galactic runaway pair caused a major shift in The Mandalorian's upcoming narrative, leaving fans to speculate about what's next for the titular bounty hunter.
Plot details of Season 3 are still heavily guarded, but a few tidbits have emerged in the past months. On top of dealing with the Darksaber plot point that was left unresolved, Season 3 was also rumored to feature Baby Yoda's Jedi training and the return of Wookies.
Production is now underway for the Star Wars series, meaning that set leaks could likely arrive.
Now, details about a spoiler-heavy sequence have emerged.
New The Mandalorian Scene Details Revealed
Making Star Wars shared new details about a thrilling action sequence that will be filmed for The Mandalorian Season 3.
The outlet shared that the Disney+ series is looking for actors and cosplayers to fill around 75 different Mandalorian suits of armor. Making Star Wars bared that the featured Mandalorian characters would cast local actors while background moments would use cosplayers from the fandom.
The outlet also noted that the reported 75 Mandalorians would do some armor swapping of pieces to create more iterations on screen. Making Star Wars shared that some of the sample armors have a "Boba Fett vibe" with different colors as well as a few pieces of red armor from Darth Maul's Mandalorians in The Clone Wars.
Making Star Wars revealed the reason why this scene would be included in Season 3. At some point in the narrative, it seems that a plethora of Mandalorians from around the galaxy will answer a call for help from Din Djarin.
The outlet unveiled that Din's legend is "growing" throughout the galaxy since rumors of a true Mandalore's return are being heard. Din's call was eventually answered by "more Mandalorians that you could have ever imagined."
Lastly, Making Star Wars speculated that this scene could serve as a "unifying moment" for Mandalore.
A Fitting Mandalorian Tribute
While fans can take this rumor with a grain of salt, many would agree that it makes narrative sense for The Mandalorian Season 3 to feature a scene involving many Mandalorians, especially considering the current trajectory of the show's storyline.
It's reasonable to assume that Din Djarin and the rest of the characters of the show will end up in Mandalore due to the Darksaber's inclusion. It's possible that Din and Katee Sackhoff's Bo-Katan could eventually duke it out for the right to claim Mandalore, but it seems that an outside Imperial force would intervene.
The Empire's invasion of Mandalore could end up being the reason for Din's "call for help," thus leading to the epic arrival of his Mandalorian comrades across the galaxy.
Possible reinforcements arriving could be Boba Fett, Koska Reeves, Axe Wolves, and even returning favorites from The Clone Wars such as Captain Rex. If Clone Force 99 is still alive at this point in time in the Skywalker Saga, it's also possible that they will join the cause.
Emily Swallow, who played The Armorer during Season 1, is also a candidate to return, and this was further amplified by her hopeful comments about a potential comeback.
Meanwhile, it's worth pointing out that this isn't the first time that The Mandalorian involved fans in an important sequence of the show. During Season 1, The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau and producer Dave Filoni confirmed that they brought in the 501st Legion as Stormtroopers extras for the finale.
The 501st Legion is a large volunteer organization composed of Star Wars fans who are costume enthusiasts. Given that this rumored sequence requires fan costumers or cosplayers, it seems likely that Lucasfilm could once again hire them for Season 3.
If proven true, it is fitting that The Mandalorian is giving back to the Star Wars fandom by showcasing fans as part of an important moment of the series.
One would imagine that this rumored scene could end up being featured as a pivotal moment in the Season 3 finale, mainly because it mirrors what Luke Skywalker did during "The Rescue." In a way, this could end up as a way to celebrate The Mandalorian's success while also pushing the narrative forward.
The Mandalorian is rumored to be released sometime in 2022.
