Star Wars: Updates to Mandalorian S3, Boba Fett, and Obi-Wan Kenobi

Star Wars

A recent report revealed news about the upcoming Star Wars projects at Disney +. Among other things, it was about the third season of The Mandalorian, which will probably take some time to complete.

According to Collider's sources, filming for the new episodes will not start until late 2021 or early 2022 planned. Responsible for this are the productions of The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi, which require the Mandalorian film studio. At the moment, fans shouldn't expect the third season before the end of 2022. Leading actor Pedro Pascal is also busy with another series. The actor also got the lead role as Joel in The Last of Us and will have to do with it until June 2022. Since Pedro Pascal is not always under the armor of the Mandalorian when shooting, many scenes could be shot in advance and then dubbed.

Fennec actress Ming-Na Wen recently confirmed via Twitter that The Book of Boba Fett are complete. According to the statements in the report, the new series is more likely to be "Mandalorian 2.5", which will feature well-known characters. In the title role, fans can look forward to the return of Temuera Morrison. The Book of Boba Fett is scheduled to launch on Disney + in December 2021. New episodes of The Bad Batch are currently being published there on a weekly basis.

Speaking after concluding filming on new Thor movie Love and Thunder, Waititi revealed that he expected to finish post-production on the Marvel movie by February, before working on some TV projects ahead of his next movie.

'I don't know if that [movie]'s going to be Star Wars,' he admitted to the Sydney Morning Herald. 'I hope it'll be that but there's a whole lot of other little things that I've got my sticky little fingers attached to so we'll see.'

The director is also set to write the new Star Wars project with 1917's Krysty Wilson-Cairns.

Waititi is no stranger to Star Wars, having directed an episode of The Mandalorian, as well as voiced the character of IG-11 in the hit Disney+ series.
