The Mandalorian Season 1 and Season 2 have tried introducing some familiar faces. The second season has done a bang on job in that area. Here’s how the Mandalorian Season 3 could outdo its predecessors. These Classic Star Wars characters would make a huge difference.
We finally got to know what happens to the Star Wars Rebels characters in the aftermath of the Return of the Jedi. Hera Syndulla is a fan-favorite character. She played a major role in the rebellion. After the fall of the Empire, she was one of the most crucial Jedi cogs in the machine that was the New Republic. Hera Syndulla could easily make way to The Mandalorian Season 3. Syndulla is a major link to other famous characters. Numeorous cameo appearances in Rogue One and The Rise of Skywalker have been already made by the Captain of the Ghost. We believe it’s only a matter of time.
If the Mandalorian is indeed looking for other people of his kind who have information regarding the Jedi, the most likely person would be Sabine Wren. First making an appearance in Star Wars Rebels, she was tasked with hunting down Ezra Miller and Ahsoka Tano. Tano and Wren played major roles in the second season of the series. Wren carries the burden of a dark past. Her family, which is Mandalorian Nobility, has suffered much due to the cruel tidings of fate. She also has a vested interest in the Darksaber, an artefact which has already been shown to exist within the series.
While many would want Lando Calrissian to make it to the series, we are rooting for Qi’ra. There are mainly two reasons for doing so. Her fate after Solo is still unknown. Since its been years, it’s very likely that Qi’ra is now the head of the Crimson Dawn after the end of the Galactic Civil War. The Mandalorian is a bounty hunter who traverses the belles of the underworld on a daily basis. The second reason is Emilia Clarke. The amount of star power she brings to the show is tremendous and is a major reason why she is on this list.
From what we have seen in The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 1, the show is not scared to explore movie characters. So why limit the series to just animated canon? If they can indeed tease Boba Fett in the show, the on character we would like The Mandalorian Season 3 to feature is Chewbacca. The hairy Han Solo ally returns to his home planet of Kashyk after the war ends. The Aftermath novels by Chuck Wendig leave the door wide open for Chewbacca to have an adventure of his own. Since the Wookies have some knowledge of the Jedi, Din Djarin could travel to the Wookie home world in search of information.
Fan expectations for Captain Rex finally coming to The Mandalorian have gone way up after Chapter 9 of The Mandalorian. From what we know so far, Captain Rex is alive and kicking in this timeline. A battle hardened veteran from the era of the Rebellion and the Clone Wars, Star wars fans know about Rex from a limited perspective. We do not know his story regarding what happens after. If Ahsoka Tano is set to appear in The Mandalorian (more on that in a bit), then it is highly likely Captain Rex would soon follow. Actor Temuerra Morrison, who played Jango Fett in the Prequel Trilogies, will finally get another chance to play a live-action Star Wars character for the Disney+ series.
There have been some really strong hints that Rosario Dawson of Netflix’s Daredevil and Luke Cage fame, is playing the fan-favorite character on screen. Ahsoka Tano is deeply connected to Mandalore and the Jedi, making the chances of her appearing in the series very high. Director Dave Filoni has openly admitted his affinity for the character. Tano’s inclusion would undoubtedly sky-rocket the series’ popularity to sky high levels.
