It's fair to say The Mandalorian season 3 hasn't necessarily played out in the way we expected, with the focus often shifting to characters and locations we didn't anticipate being this central to the Disney+ series. That's proved to be far from a bad thing, however, and many fans are now demanding a spin-off focusing on Bo-Katan Kryze!
The Armorer is someone who has long intrigued us as well, and she's also become a much bigger part of The Mandalorian this year.
Now, a new rumour shared by Star Wars Time reveals that the leader of the Children of the Watch is about to receive quite the upgrade.
According to the site, the unnamed character will don a jetpack and blasters at some sort of big ceremony that involves other Mandalorians. It sounds like a celebratory event, and one which will also see a number of foundlings - including Paz Vizsla's son, Ragnar - receive their own armour.
Like many of you, we'd love to see more of The Armorer in action, but it sounds an awful lot like this sequence is from a much later point in season 3 (potentially even the finale). Still, these changes for the character certainly bode well for her future in this Galaxy Far, Far Away.
During a recent interview, actress Emily Swallow opened up on what she knows about The Armorer's backstory.
"There are some specific details I have learned about some of the history of the Mandalorians and how she fits into that. I don’t think there’s much that I’ve learned beyond what’s revealed in this season. It’s been helpful not to try to pin it down too much, because, based on what I know about her so far, it’s more interesting (not knowing) and it serves the story better."
What are your hopes for The Armorer in the rest of The Mandalorian's third season?
