Mandalore – Everything you need to know about the Mandalorian home planet

The marketing for The Mandalorian season 3 has focused for the most part on Din Djarin’s journey to the war-torn planet of Mandalore, homeworld of the Mandalorians. It’s a location we’ve only seen before in live-action through a flashback featured in The Book of Boba Fett’s fifth chapter (opens in new tab), and that was just a fleeting glimpse of its fall to the Empire.

Veteran Star Wars animation fans will be familiar with Mandalore as it was prominently featured in both The Clone Wars and Rebels. But even then, the Mandalore we saw was nothing but a shadow of its former self. The planet’s history is long and troubled even if we limit ourselves to the post-Disney Star Wars canon, and explains why the Mandalorians we’ve met in the hit live-action show are so grumpy and tied to ancient tradition.
