Great Scott! Christopher Lloyd joins The Mandalorian Season 3

March 21st, 2022 by Marc Comments

Well, it looks like Back to the Future and Star Trek star Christopher Lloyd is [finally] joining the Star Wars universe!

The actor has been cast in the upcoming third season of The Mandalorian and, according to IMDb, will appear in the opening episode of this season.

Best known as Doc Emmett Brown in the Back to the Future movies, there’s no word on who the star (83) is playing but there’s a few choices we’d love to have him as, including Joruus C’Baoth, left, the dark Jedi from the Heir to the Emperor books who, since Star Wars seems to be embracing the Legends universe now, is certainly a possibility.

However, we’re hearing that there will be a couple of elder Mandalorian wise men from the tow tribes of Mandalore who will be appearing in the new season, so our money is on him being one of them… how big a role this is, is yet to be revealed but having Doc Brown in Star Wars is an utter delight.

So, the Man with the DeLorean is in the Mandalorian? Works for us.

The third season of The Mandalorian has no release date yet but it’s expected around Halloween this year.

Thoughts on this cool bit of casting? Let us hear them all…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
