Mandalorian Season 3 Honest Trailer Takes a Flamethrower to the Star Wars Show

The Mandalorians - Paz Viszla, the Armorer, Bo-Katan Kryze, and Din Djarin - from Star Wars The Mandalorian Season Three

Screen Junkies just dropped an Honest Trailer for The Mandalorian Season 3, and it takes a flamethrower to the Star Wars show’s third batch of episodes.

The parody trailer comes courtesy of Screen Junkies’ YouTube channel. It takes aim at several aspects of The Mandalorian Season 3, particularly its overarching narrative, which it categorizes as a “grab bag” of disparate plot threads mingled with a surprising amount of “real estate talk.” The Honest Trailer also calls out showrunner Jon Favreau’s decision to reunite protagonist Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and his adopted son, Grogu, suggesting this was done to boost toy sales rather than further the pair’s story. Disney and Lucasfilm don’t emerge unscathed either, with the Screen Junkies team poking fun at their inability to release a new Star Wars film since Rise of Skywalker debuted back in 2019.

While some Star Wars fans will no doubt share Screen Junkies’ criticisms of The Mandalorian Season 3, online grumblings regarding Din Djarin’s latest adventure weren’t enough to derail its viewership figures. The third season’s final episode, “Chapter 24: The Return,” reportedly pulled in a bigger audience than the Season 2 finale “Chapter 16: The Rescue,” “Chapter 24: The Return” was watched by 1.4 million unique viewers in the five days following its release on Disney+, whereas “Chapter 16: The Rescue” could only muster 1.1 million viewers over the same period. That said, “Chapter 16: The Rescue” was better received by critics than “Chapter 24: The Rescue,” with several pundits opining that the former suffered from storytelling issues introduced elsewhere in Season 3.

One such perceived shortcoming was The Mandalorian Season 3’s heavy reliance on characters and concepts culled from wider Star Wars lore, which the season’s detractors argued made for a muddled narrative. The Disney+ show almost included even more of these controversial callbacks to the franchise’s continuity than made the final cut, according to The Book of Boba Fett star Temuera Morrison. During a recent fan event Q&A session, Morrison revealed he expected to reprise the Boba Fett role in The Mandalorian‘s third season, however, he ultimately never got the call-up from Lucasfilm. Morrison also touched on Din Djarin and Grogu’s prominent role in several episodes of The Book of Boba Fett, joking that he blamed the duo for “ruining [his] show.”

It’s currently unclear when (or even if) fans can expect to see Morrison suit up as Boba Fett again, as Lucasfilm and its collaborators remain tight-lipped on whether The Book of Boba Fett Season 2 is happening. This includes director Robert Rodriguez, who recently stated that while he is indeed privy to Lucasfilm’s plans for The Mandalorian spinoff series, he is “sworn to secrecy” for now.

All three seasons of The Mandalorian are currently streaming on Disney+.
