The Mandalorian Theory Explains Why Din Djarin Returns To Tatooine

In Star Wars, the desert planet of Tatooine has been important, and a new theory suggests that’s still true in The Mandalorian season 3. While Din Djarin has already visited the planet, in both The Mandalorian seasons 1 and 2, as well as The Book of Boba Fett, Tatooine may play a bigger role in this season’s overall arc. Tatooine has been seen in The Mandalorian season 3 trailer, and it raises the question of why Din and Grogu have returned yet again.


Since The Mandalorian season 3 is teased to show Din and Grogu traveling to a disseminated Mandalore so Din can repent for removing his helmet, it’s odd that the trailer features Tatooine so much. It’s unclear how long Din and Grogu will be on Mandalore, or if they accomplish their mission at all, though there is a shot of a destroyed city of Mandalore featured in The Mandalorian season 3 trailer. There are multiple reasons why The Mandalorian season 3 could be returning to Tatooine, but one, in particular, seems especially interesting, if not likely.

The Mandoverse Keeps Returning To Tatooine – And It Needs A Reason

The Mandalorian has seen Din Djarin go to the desert plant of Tatooine in both seasons 1 and 2. Before Din’s time with Grogu, he was a bounty hunter and Tatooine’s Mos Eisley was the perfect place to get new assignment as it was already established in A New Hope that many bounty hunters used it as a kind of home base. In season 2, Din and Grogu returned to Tatooine after a tip that another Mandalorian was living in Mos Pelgo. Din even called it odd that he had spent so much time on Tatooine, but hadn’t ever seen another Mandalorian.

Both The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett keep returning to Tatooine, and while it at first felt like a cool nod to other Star Wars movies, there wasn’t anything that attractive about the outer rim planet. However, after the events of The Book of Boba Fett Din Djarin has a reason to go back to Tatooine, because he has major allies Boba Fett and Fennec Shand there. If Din gets into a pinch, he knows that they will have his back and help out however they can. It initially seemed odd that Boba Fett would want to stay on Tatooine, but it feels right that he’s furthering the legacy of Anakin and Luke Skywalker’s homeworld.

The Mandalorians Need A Safe Refuge

One of the reasons why so much of The Mandalorian season 3 trailer is on Tatooine, is mostly because Mandalorians need a safe refuge. Their home planet was destroyed, and they are scattered all over the galaxy. However, Boba Fett now controls Mos Espa as Jabba the Hutt’s replacement. With this power, Boba may have set aside land and resources to help out the Mandalorians. While Boba wasn’t born on Mandalore, he still considers himself one of them, even if others, like Bo Katan Kryze don’t. He could also do it as a thank you to Din for his and Grogu’s help against the Pykes in The Book of Boba Fett.

By setting aside land, or even just welcoming Mandalorians, Boba Fett would allow for the different Mandalorian clans to reunite and face the challenges ahead of them, especially when it comes to rebuilding Mandalore. This would also give Star Wars reasons to bring back Boba Fett after a rather disappointing solo show. It would mean redemption for the long-beloved character, and allow the character to do more than just be the Daimyo of Mos Espa.

Mandalorians On Tatooine Would Explain The Planet’s Continuing Importance

Having the Mandalorians all reunite on Tatooine would give the planet more importance in the grand scheme of the Star Wars franchise. The storyline could work as the connective tissue between The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, the Star Wars sequel trilogy, and even the upcoming Ahoska Disney+ series. If Tatooine was set up as the home base for different Mandalorian clans, it may mean that more come out of the woodwork like former members of Death Watch, Clan Wren (possibly including Sabine), and even potentially a live-action Fenn Rau, the last remaining of the Mandalorian Protectors.

Not having Mandalore anymore might just be the catalyst for the different Mandalorian clans to reunite and find peace among themselves. While it’s easy for them to have civil disagreements within their planet, it’s much harder for them to work against one another when they don’t have a real home. And while Tatooine may serve as a temporary home, Din Djarin may lead his people to reinhabit and restore Mandalore.

Audiences won’t know exactly why or how Din Djarin was able to get all the different Mandalorian clans to Tatooine until The Mandalorian season 3 premieres on Disney+ on March 1. Hopefully, the first few episodes give some clarification and bring back characters like Boba Fett and Fennec Shand to help Din Djarin. Either way, The Mandalorian season 3 will surely be action-packed and reunites audiences with Din Djarin and Grogu.
