Deadly bounty hunter Din Djarin/Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) is set to return alongside Grogu in The Mandalorian season three in February 2023, undoubtedly the most anticipated Star Wars project.
With countless odds stacked against him, Din Djarin has become the official ruler of the Mandalorian race and planet Mandalore as he wields the Darksaber, a mythic weapon that Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff) sees as her birthright.
With so much at stake for the future of Lucasfilm with The Mandalorian, Pedro Pascal has shared that his bounty hunting hero is “reluctant” to take any leadership positions in his junior season, clearly making way for Bo-Katan Kryze to retake her saber:
“If he is stepping into a leadership position, he’s reluctant to do so. I don’t think there’s anything more interesting than a character being forced into discovering what they’re capable of”

In talks with Total Film, Pedro reveals:
“If he is stepping into a leadership position, he’s reluctant to do so. I don’t think that there’s anything more interesting than a character being forced into discovering what they’re capable of, and who they are. That part has been really, really fun. Also, from my point of view, there’s so many searchable ways to find the tonality of that. I just tried to achieve the subtleties of that kind of character development.”
With Pedro Pascal sharing this revelation, it’s clear that his character will most likely lay down his guard to allow Bo-Katan best him in combat to earn the Darksaber and reclaim her throne on Mandalore. While Katan doesn’t have to kill the Mandalorian, who knows how high the stakes will be in season three!
In new footage revealed at Star Wars Celebration 2022, Bo-Katan is shown sharing an integral scene with Grogu by a small fire, protecting the child as Din Djarin remains off-screen.
Whether or not Bo-Katan attempts to prevent the Mandalorian from reaching the waters of Mandalore to restore his right in the creed is unknown. Still, Katan has been billed as an antagonist of the upcoming season.
