The Mandalorian Season 2 is nearly here. After months of apprehension among fans about a potential delay, Disney+ finally announced a release date, October 30. It also revealed a new trailer full of jokes, action, and Baby Yoda. It also contained a pretty big clue about a possible return to a planet we’ve seen before. Here’s a hint: it’s a place that has a lot of Jedi secrets, and it may have also been a hideout for a presumed-dead emperor.
In the trailer for The Mandalorian Season 2, Din Djarin and The Child traverse many planets, including one that looks an awful lot like Ilum. One of the settings looks rather unfamiliar, but it appears to be an ultra-populated city. There aren’t that many planets in Star Wars with that kind of landscape, so the first one that comes to mind is the center of Galactic politics: Coruscant.
Redditor KingGreystone555 took this assumption and ran with it, suggesting Mando and his young ward are on Coruscant to break into the Jedi Temple. While the Temple was a sacred place before the establishment of the Empire, after Palpatine took over he converted it into his own personal palace.
The theory suggests our heroes will have to pull off a heist in order to obtain some sort of information kept by the Jedi to find more Force users like Baby Yoda. If Mando needs to break into the Temple, he’d need help from a local. That could be why he’s strolling through what appears to be the Coruscant slums.
