Following the recent The Mandalorian Season 3 trailer’s release, Lucasfilm has finally confirmed the directorial lineup for the highly-anticipated return of the hit Star Wars series. The eight new episodes will be directed by returning filmmakers Rick Famuyiwa, Carl Weathers, and Bryce Dallas Howard. They’ll be joined by award-winning directors Lee Isaac Chung (Minari) and Peter Ramsey (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), along with Black Panther cinematographer Rachel Morrison.
“The journeys of the Mandalorian through the Star Wars galaxy continue. Once a lone bounty hunter, Din Djarin has reunited with Grogu,” says the synopsis. “Meanwhile, the New Republic struggles to lead the galaxy away from its dark history. The Mandalorian will cross paths with old allies and make new enemies as he and Grogu continue their journey together.”
The Star Wars series is led by Pedro Pascal as a lone Mandalorian gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy. Before the new season, Pascal’s Din Djarin previously appeared in Disney+’s The Book of Boba Fett, which saw Djarin and Grogu reunited after the events of The Mandalorian Season 2’s finale.
The Mandalorian hails from executive producers Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson, Karen Gilchrist, and Carrie Beck. Favreau is also set as the showrunner and one of its directors.
Season 3 is slated to premiere on March 1 on Disney+.
