A new LEGO set based on season three of “The Mandalorian” is due to release on May 1, 2023.
Mandalorian Fang Fighter vs. TIE Interceptor Set – $99.99
A new LEGO Set based on characters and ships featured in season three of “The Mandalorian” is expected to be available on LEGO.com on May 1, just in time for “Star Wars” Day on May the 4th.
The set includes 957 pieces to build a TIE Interceptor, a Mandalorian Fang Fighter, and four “Star Wars” LEGO Minifigures.
The LEGO Minifigures include Din Djarin with the Darksaber. an Imperial Starfighter Pilot, an R2-E6 unit, and an unnamed Mandalorian Fleet Commander. We’re guessing based on his blue outfit that it’s Axe Woves, even though he did not fly this particular ship model onscreen.
LEGO will be participating in “Star Wars” Day by initiating special sales. Check it out here.
This Minifigure is ready for action in the Mandalorian Fang Fighter cockpit.
The Mandalorian and Grogu in Disney Parks
Din Djarin and his little buddy Grogu have recently been added to the character set circulating in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. They are routinely visiting at Disneyland. They also made a special appearance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World to celebrate season three of “The Mandalorian” premiering on Disney+.

Star Wars Month
Also in California, Disneyland will be extending the usual “May the Fourth” special offerings into an entire month-long event in May.
According to the OC Register, the month-long event “will feature ‘epic encounters’ and themed food and beverage items inspired by the cinematic galaxy far, far away.”
The month is being kicked off with a couple of fan-favorite events, starting with the Hyperspace Mountain overlay and Disneyland After Dark: “Star Wars” Nites.
Hyperspace Mountain Overlay
The Hyperspace Mountain overlay began as a seasonal event in 2015 and continues to delight guests every year during the “Star Wars” celebration. The ride experience features iconic music by John Williams, and as riders plummet through the darkness on the indoor coaster, they enjoy thrilling additional features on the attraction, such as scenes of X-Wings, Starfighters, and even the Millennium Falcon fly across the screens inside Space Mountain.
Disneyland After Dark: ‘Star Wars’ Nite
The enormously popular Disneyland After Dark: “Star Wars” Nite is already sold out for all four of its dates in early May. Guests with a special ticket for this event can enter Disneyland without a park reservation on May 2, 4, 8, or 11, depending on which date they purchased their ticket.
Disneyland After Dark: “Star Wars” Nite includes multiple exciting events, including special food and beverage offerings, character meet-and-greets, and shorter-than-usual lines on popular attractions. The evening also usually features a fireworks show set to “Star Wars” music over Sleeping Beauty Castle.
These special events only serve to begin the party this year, though, as Disneyland has indicated it intends to celebrate “Star Wars” for the entire month of May.
