Christopher Lloyd has joined the cast for the third season of “The Mandalorian” which has been filming in Southern California since October.
Character details for his role are being kept under wraps, but it is said to be a guest starring part only as opposed to a recurring or regular role.
This marks Lloyd’s first appearance in the “Star Wars” franchise, the actor is best known for his role in the “Back to the Future” franchise and played the villain in “Star Trek III: The Search for Spock” in 1984.
Most recently he appeared with a memorable role in the Bob Odenkirk action movie “Nobody” and popped up in George Clooney’s “The Tender Bar”.
No release date has been revealed for “The Mandalorian” season three though a late Fall/holiday release window is the most likely scenario. Lucasfilm is currently prepping for the May 25th premiere of “Obi-Wan Kenobi”.
