Throughout season three of The Mandalorian, Star Wars actor Carl Weathers has hinted at the character of Greef Karga’s ongoing development. Karga, a former Bounty Hunter’s Guild agent based on the Nevarro world in the Outer Rim, was initially going to be portrayed as a Weequay, the same species as Hondo Ohnaka from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but Jon Favreau did not want to conceal Weather’s performance under a mask. Karga became High Magistrate and focused on eliminating Nevarro’s criminal presence and making the city a more respectable place for its residents after casting out Moff Gideon’s Imperial Remnant during the events of The Mandalorian season 2.
Weathers has spoken with Gambit ahead of the highly anticipated third season of the hit show The Mandalorian, which is currently set to premiere on Disney+ in March. The seasoned actor has also hinted that Greef’s character will take on a more flamboyant appearance as Nevarro continues to flourish under his leadership, promising fans that they will learn new “aspects of Greef’s character.” Look at his remarks below:
“There are aspects of Greef’s character that you’ll see in third season that you didn’t see in the other two seasons. And he — I’ll just say this — he’s become a magistrate. So his clothing is really kind of out there now. It’s got all his finery on and beautiful colors and wearing crazy stuff and trying to keep Nevarro a safe place and place that you might want to call home.”
Reasons Behind The Mandalorian Growing Obsession With Nevarro
The Star Wars franchise has produced a number of iconic locations over the years, each of which has grown to be almost as well-known as the characters themselves. Tatooine, the homeworld of Luke Skywalker, was one of the worlds Favreau and Dave Filoni would include in The Mandalorian seasons 1 and 2, but Nevarro was a brand-new locale that had not previously been mentioned in Star Wars lore. Nevarro, a volcanic planet based on the lava flows of Kailua-Kona in Hawaii, would play a significant role in the continuing narrative of Din Djarin’s journeys.
Nevarro’s initial portrayal was that of a filthy and dysfunctional society plagued by crime and corruption, initially acting as an indicator for the wider, unorganized state of the galaxy following the fall of the Galactic Empire. But as The Mandalorian developed, Nevarro slowly flourished under Greef Karga’s guidance, and with each subsequent visit to the planet, it advanced even more. Nevarro’s development resembled Din Djarin’s inner journey in some ways, as his guardianship of Grogu evolved from resentment to genuine affection. Nevarro changed into a more welcoming place for its residents as Din Djarin developed into a more complex character.
What We Know So Far About Season 3 of The Mandalorian
Nevarro is now known to not be the only well-known location destined to reappear in the upcoming season of The Mandalorian thanks to the recently released trailer. It appears the Obi-Wan Kenobi series is also destined to return to Coruscant, the former Imperial capital, after catching a glimpse of it in flashbacks during that series. While this is going on, Djarin makes it known that he intends to travel to the devastated Mandalorian homeworld of Mandalore in order to make up for the sin of taking off his helmet. Regarding Grogu, it appears that additional Order 66 flashbacks will be released in the future to reveal even more of his backstory. The Mandalorian season 3 will debut on March 1 and, with so many worlds to explore, promises to be an action-packed come back to the Star Wars universe.
