Photos from the Manhattan Beach set show the show’s otherworldy architecture sitting upon a walled-off, sandy lot.

The finishing details of the buildings appear essentially complete, with tables surrounding one cafe while props surrounded a neighboring storefront.

It’s not entirely clear where the village could be in the Star Wars universe, however it appeared to be on the desert planet of Tatooine.

While the exteriors of the buildings were all but done, the interior gave a behind-the-scenes glimpse with wooden panels propping up the set.

The completed set will certainly back up rumors season three of The Mandalorian is just days away from beginning to film.

While season three has already been written but has yet to be given the greenlight, production is said to be around the corner, Deadline reported last week.

Pre-production on The Mandalorian season three has be going on ‘for months’ already and sources told Deadline that production will be kicking off possibly next week or ‘in late November/early December.’

However, there are also reports claiming production won’t begin until spring of 2021.

Deadline reported that the ‘confusion’ comes from the Lucasfilm side which operates under a thick veil of secrecy and that the nearer of the production start dates could actually be for a related series.

‘One explanation could be rumors that another Mandalorian-related project, I hear possibly a Boba Fett miniseries, would film first, starting next week, with The Mandalorian Season 3 following after a monthlong break,’ the outlet claimed. 

The second season of The Mandalorian debuted late last month, with star Pedro Pascal returning as the titular character.

The show follows the adventures of The Mandalorian as he searches for a safe home for the adorable yet unnamed character fans have nicknamed ‘Baby Yoda.’
