For John Favereau, the creator of the series, the core of the show “has always been the relationship between the Mandalorian and Grogu. We knew that for that relationship to grow in the past seasons you had to work to eventually separate them. But now in the third season the next stage of development of that relationship is that they get back together. This is a season of expansion and development. Not just for all the characters but for what’s happening in their universe.”

Executive producer Dave Filone detailed that “that definitely forced us to return to Mandalore with a different approach. Because this is still a ‘Star Wars’ story, which for us means that there must be hope that a group of people with different ways of thinking can unite around a common good. That in this season is key around what happens with Grogu and our protagonist.

The character connects a lot more with his heart this season and for me that was genuinely exciting. I hope for the public too.”
