Well after the whirlwind that was The Mandalorian season two, we have plenty of Star Wars content to look forward to in 2021. The Mandalorian season three is not in those plans, however. According to the Disney 2021 Preview Kit, The Mandalorian season three is not releasing in that window. Instead we’ll be getting The Book of Boba Fett and The Bad Batch for our 2021 Star Wars shows on Disney+.
While this isn’t a full confirmation that it won’t be releasing, it comes officially from Disney. During the Investor Day meeting a couple weeks ago, they did make mention that The Mandalorian season three would be releasing Christmas 2021. Was that a smokescreen for The Book of Boba Fett? It could have been.
It would make more sense to give the two shows their time to breath. So we have Boba Fett for 2021 and The Mandalorian season three returns for 2022. I don’t have an issue with that plan, do you? After all, Jon Favreau all but confirmed this in his GMA interview.
So, what do you think of this news from Disney? It’s just a bit of scheduling, but it could have big implications for what’s planned in The Book of Boba Fett.
