The first season of Disney Plus' The Mandalorian was incredible. Critics and audiences around the world lapped it up and loved the fresh take on the Star Wars universe.
Once the final episode finished, all eyes were on when we could expect to see the second season.
While October might seem far away, at least you can get excited about the third instalment to the franchise already getting underway.
Variety reports pre-production for the third instalment is in the works.
Filming for the second season managed to wrap up shortly before lockdowns and social distancing advice started to be issued around the world due to the coronavirus.
Those episodes can now be completed in post-production, which allows other people attached to the series to start concocting ideas for the third season.
Creator and executive producer Jon Favreau has been 'writing season three for a while', according to Variety, and Lucasfilm vice president and executive creative director Doug Chiang has been leading the art department for the past few weeks in getting concepts for the next stage.
There's no word on when we can expect it but it's nice to know that they're not mucking around with getting us new material.
Disney has also announced a new eight-part docuseries going behind the scenes of the hit spin-off.
The first episode is set to land on 4 May - obviously - on Disney+, with new episodes dropping each Friday after that.
Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian will delve into the filmmaking process, the technology used to create such an immersive world, and the inspiration behind some of the most popular characters.
Speaking about the series, executive producer Jon Favreau said he had a blast making The Mandalorian and wanted to let the fans in on how it was done.
He said: "Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian is an opportunity for fans of the show to take a look inside and get to see a different perspective, and perhaps a greater understanding, of how The Mandalorian came together and some of the incredibly talented contributors throughout season one.
"We had a great experience making the show and we're looking forward to sharing it with you."
But this isn't the only gift the folks over at Disney have announced to mark 'Star Wars Day'.
After seven seasons, another mega-popular chapter in the Star Wars saga, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, will come to an end.
The season finale will explore the events leading up to Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, and will air on 4 May.
