New information about the next two episodes of The Mandalorian has been revealed. In addition, we have received some new photos from the hit Disney+ series. Chapter 3 of The Mandalorian went live late last night and Star Wars fans were busy refreshing their streaming devices to get going on the latest story. However, it seems like Disney still has some kinks to work out with their service. Regardless, fans seem to be pretty excited with the way things are moving.
Next week's episode of The Mandalorian is going to feature our hero as he "teams up with an ex-soldier to protect a village from raiders." From the image teasing the episode, it appears that we are going to get our first look at Gina Carano as Cara Dune, a former Rebel Shock Trooper-turned-mercenary who fought in the civil war for the Rebel Alliance. Disney and Lucasfilm have not revealed any other details about next week's episode, but Bryce Dallas Howard is behind the camera for it from a script Jon Favreau penned.
The following week's episode of The Mandalorian will show our hero as he "helps a rookie bounty hunter who is in over his head." There is no image from this upcoming episode, but many are hoping that we'll finally get to see comedian Bill Burr in Mandalorian armor since we have only seen him in the trailers thus far. Disney and Lucasfilm have been keeping a very tight lid on the series, which has seen Baby Yoda surge in popularity. It's pretty amazing that they were able to keep that big of a secret for so long. Dave Filoni takes over directing and writing duties on this episode.
Along with Baby Yoda, there are a lot more surprises ahead for Star Wars fans in The Mandalorian. It's still unclear what Baby Yoda is and why so many people want him, but there have been some pretty interesting fan theories floating around. Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni have been able to create something that almost all Star Wars fans are enjoying, which is a pretty rare feat these days. The series is something new with just enough nostalgia to keep things interesting.
The fact that Star Wars fans are staying up until midnight or 3 AM in North America to devour The Mandalorian proves just how well-received the series has been and we're only three episodes in at this point in time. While some fans wish all of the episodes were available to binge, it has given people longer to digest, which has led to repeat viewings. When all is said and done, The Mandalorian will be able to be binged all in one shot at the end of December. You can check out some images from the past three episodes with a few new ones below, thanks to Disney+, where you can signup now.
