There's a huge amount of excitement for The Mandalorian season 3, especially following recent reports about the show's possible premiere date. While Andor has impressed just about everyone, it's hard not to count down the days until Din Djarin and Grogu make their return.
However, the wait to see more of The Child might be shorter than we realised.
StarWarsNews.net has uncovered a now-deleted social media post from the Italian Disney+ accounts revealing that a Star Wars short, starring Grogu, will premiere on November 12.
Titled "Grogu and Dust Bunnies," the assumption is that this might be a photorealistic animated short along the lines of the recently released I Am Groot series from Marvel Studios. Before we get too ahead of ourselves, though, it's worth pointing out that there is another, far less exciting possibility.
As the site notes, it's quite likely this "Star Wars Zen" short is simply one of the ambient sounds/music videos that have previously been released on Disney+, meaning this won't be an actual adventure starring Grogu. We hope that's not the case, and the fact that those social media posts have been deleted - after seemingly jumping the gun - may be very telling indeed.
This has received literally zero marketing, though November 12 does mark the anniversary of when The Mandalorian (and Disney+) premiered back in 2019.
Regardless, we're sure Disney and Lucasfilm have plans to start building anticipation for The Mandalorian season 3, and a short like this one would be a good start. Only time will tell whether "Grogu and Dust Bunnies" proves to be something worth getting excited about, but here's hoping this apparent leak prompts Disney+ to share some official details.
The Mandalorian is expected to premiere on Disney+ next February, so you'll want to make sure you keep checking back here for updates we have them.
