Here’s your guide to the full cast and characters in The Mandalorian Season 3, the newest chapter of the hit Star Wars series on Disney+.

In November 2019, a lone gunslinger wandered into a bar in the outer rim. Just over half an hour later, Star Wars unveiled its newest, most beloved character: Grogu, otherwise affectionately known as Baby Yoda.

Alongside Din Djarin, the father-son pair have gone up against monsters, rogue bounty hunters, and Darksaber-wielding Imperial villains. The last time we saw them, they reunited in The Book of Boba Fett after bidding farewell at the end of Season 2.

Ahead of the finale, here’s your guide to everyone in The Mandalorian Season 3 cast, and which characters they play.


The Mandalorian Season 3 cast: All actors and characters

The official synopsis for the new season reads: “The journeys of the Mandalorian through the Star Wars galaxy continue. Once a lone bounty hunter, Din Djarin has reunited with Grogu.

“Meanwhile, the New Republic struggles to lead the galaxy away from its dark history. The Mandalorian will cross paths with old allies and make new enemies as he and Grogu continue their journey together.”

Below you’ll find a list of all the major characters in the cast of The Mandalorian Season 3.

Din Djarin: Pedro Pascal

Pedro Pascal as Din Djarin in The Mandalorian

Pedro Pascal plays Din Djarin, the show’s titular Mandalorian. Once an orphan of the Empire, he was taken in by the Children of the Watch, a Mandalorian sect who follow the ways of… the Way. In Season 3, we’ll see him travel to Mandalore for redemption after removing his helmet.

In an interview with Digital Spy, Pascal said: “It’s such a beautiful dynamic that exists between Din and Grogu; protector, protected. And how that dynamic can be reversed, and that there’s so much layering within their relationship.

“So I would just say that what is initially, or instantly, rich about their dynamic becomes more available to us in season three. What disarms us about this relationship continues to grow and that’s a fun thing.”

Pascal is also the co-lead of another huge show on TV right now: The Last of Us, where he plays the Joel to Bella Ramsey’s Ellie.


Grogu in The Mandalorian

Grogu, brought to life with a mix of puppetry and VFX, 50-something-year-old who belongs to the same species as Master Yoda. He reunited with Mando in The Book of Boba Fett, choosing to abandon his Jedi training to be a Mandalorian – just like his dad.

Speaking to Total Film, creator Jon Favreau hinted that Grogu could be the key to bringing the Jedi and Mandalorians together. “Grogu seems to have the potential to have a lot of significance in bridging these two cultures and maybe he’s a character that can walk both those worlds… we’ll see,” he said.

Moff Gideon: Giancarlo Esposito
