The year 2022 has been a very great year for Star Wars fans in terms of content from the franchise. In addition to the release of The Book of Boba Fett, Lucasfilm also released the Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+ with the Rogue One prequel Andor currently in development. And while this year is one of the most live-action Star Wars content the fans have ever received, some fans are still waiting for the Season 3 of The Mandalorian.

The finale of The Mandalorian Season 2 shocked the audience when Return of the Jedi-era Luke Skywalker came and saved the day and also agreed to take Grogu and start his Jedi training. While a lot of fans consider it one of the best moments in Star Wars history, that finale episode was released way back in December of 2020.

Although the fans did get to see more of Mando and Grogu in The Book of Boba Fett, it has definitely been a few years since a new episode of The Mandalorian has been released on Disney+. And due to a lot of things happening in the Star Wars timeline, fans have high expectations for The Mandalorian Season 3.

With only a few months until its debut in 2023, one of the show’s directors has teased what the upcoming season’s narrative holds.

In a recent interview with Empire, director and actor Carl Weathers not only teased "a bit more [action]," in his directorial episode for The Mandalorian Season 3, but he also teased a more complex narrative due to the season having "many, many different stories within the story:"

In the season finale of The Mandalorian Season 2, "Chapter 13: The Siege", Weathers directed an action-filled finale requiring a chase sequence when they are trying to save Grogu. In fact, most of The Mandalorian Season 2’s narrative was about Mando’s mission to protect Grogu, as well as reuniting him with Luke Skywalker.

When The Siege was compared to the episode he will be directing in Season 3, Weathers admitted that “Oh there was a bit more [action], I think, in this one,” while also saying that his Season 3 episode is “a little different [to ‘The Siege’], because a lot of it had a lot more scope. But this one also had many, many different kinds of stories within the story, and that’s really nice.”

The Mandalorian Season 3 is set to premiere its first episode on Disney+ on February 2023.
