A new theory suggests that the Sith Lord Darth Sidious could be back in Season 2 of The Mandalorian.
The trailer for The Mandalorian season 2 was the opportunity to find Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) alongside Baby Yoda. In the next salvo of episodes, the two characters should once again be on the loose, the quest for the origins of the Child also forcing them to explore countless planets and unknown regions. If this element was part of the clues not to be missed in the first trailer unveiled, Mando and Baby Yoda could however also cross a familiar place of the saga Star wars, namely Coruscant. Indeed, according to a user Reddit, the mysterious city filled with graffiti seen at the beginning of the first images would actually be the famous planet, the former capital of the Galactic Empire at the time of the events of The Mandalorian. In this regard, a link with the era of the Sith and more particularly its leader, could found a new theory around season 2 of the Disney + series.
According to this, Mando and Baby Yoda will travel to Coruscant in order to break into an ancient Jedi Temple, which later became Darth Sidious’ personal palace. Our heroes will have to succeed in a heist in order to obtain certain information kept by the Jedi in order to find the traces of the followers of the Force like Baby Yoda. Upon entering the Temple, Mando could then stumble upon an ancient hologram of Palpatine, the latter pointing the way to former Jedi wizards at the time of Order 66’s declaration. His return could also be the subject of flashbacks, as Din Djarin enters the scene. If nothing has yet been confirmed by the studios, Ian McDiarmid is not attached to the project, several clues behind the scenes of the saga could however support such a theory. For example, Colin Trevorrow had originally planned in the script for The Rise of Skywalker that Rose and Finn attempt to rob a Jedi Temple. Jon Favreau could thus have used this scriptwriting spring, while Dave Filoni could be tempted by a surprise cameo of the Emperor, the director and screenwriter being a fervent follower of easter eggs in connection with Star Wars. That being said, if this theory will have enough to arouse our curiosity around season 2 of The Mandalorian, it will be necessary to wait until its launch to see if it is true.
