Dagobah – and a seemingly humble swamp and forest planet that has been very solid with the Force – has a unique place in the hearts of many Star Wars fans.
All in all, it’s where we first met the Star Wars symbol, Grand Master Yoda (Frank Oz), in the Skywalker saga movie Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980). It is also the place where the then 700 year old Jedi Master Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) prepared and where this infamous “X-Wing in the Marsh” scene took place.
At this point, it’s nothing unexpected that Mandalorian maker Jon Favreau and lead maker Dave Filoni should consider revisiting the famous Star Wars planet in the upcoming third season of The Mandalorian or one of its side projects. The couple have dominated the fan management specialty, rejuvenating animated characters most loved by fans like Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) and Bo-Katan Kryze – or bringing them back to life thanks to the abundance tracker Boba Fett (currently played by Temuera Morrison) awakened (Katee Sackhoff).
However, how could this be done? The apt answer lies in the Star Wars Legends Thrawn trilogy by Timothy Zahn – Heir of the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command.
We are definitely aware that the Mandalorian adventure – no doubt via the Ahsoka side project – will most likely follow Tano’s search for Grand Admiral Thrawn (voiced by Lars Mikkelsen in Star Wars Rebels and individual Jedi Ezra Bridger (voiced by Taylor Gray in Rebels)).
Accordingly, it is not an exaggerated leap to assume that the Thrawn trilogy could be used as the reason for some of the opportunities that arise in Favreau and Filoni’s edge of the Star Wars universe.
The Mandalorian Season 3 and Ahsoka currently have no official delivery dates. The following confirmed Star Wars shows that will air on Disney + are The Book of Boba Fett and the energetic arrangement Star Wars: The Bad Batch.
