The first of the second mandalorian season contains the most important link with the New Hope. Disney+ is currently broadcasting the first episode, and the second episode is coming next Friday. The first episode of the second season lasts almost an hour and Dean Jarina finds Jarina on Tatooine with the baby when they go looking for another Mandalan. Tattooine is the main destination in the Star Wars universe, especially as it is home to Anakin and Luke Skywalker. You will find below the SPYLERS of season 2 of Mandalorian.
When the C-3PO and R2-D2 first arrive on Tatooine in New Hope, the large skeleton of a snake-like creature is visible in the background. Later, Star Wars fans learned that it is the skeleton of the Cretan dragon, and one of them is depicted alive as the villain of the episode at the opening of the second season of The Mandalorian. It was a shock for the die-hard fans and confused those who did not know the history of Crait Dragon in the franchise, both in the official canon and in the Legends.
POWERFUL: The first mandalorian of the second season brought a big explosion of the past for the fans of Star Wars.
The game Star Wars from 1996: The customizable deck contains several Krayt Dragon Howl cards, one of which is called Krayt Dragon Howl, in reference to Obi-Wan’s cry that scared the Tusken Raiders in New Hope. In fact, Master Jedi imitated the sound of the Dragon of Crete as mentioned in the novel New Hope. Star Wars fans now understand why Tusken’s hunters were so afraid of Obi-Wan Kenobi’s cry because they didn’t want the Dragon Crait to appear. It shows how John Favreaux and Dave Philoney will satisfy both new and old fans.
The opening of the second season in the style of Wild West Mandalorian is also important for the humanization of the thieves of Tusken. The hunters share a common enemy with the Cobb Vanta community of the Dragon of Crete, and they must unite to destroy it, even though they have fought against each other in the past. After reaching an agreement and working as a team to destroy the Dragon Crait, the builders begin to dismantle the inside of the huge dragon.
At the end of the episode, the horsemen of Tusken take the pearl of the Cretan dragon from within and celebrate it. In the Star Wars universe, pearls are incredibly precious and can also be used for lightweight swords. However, using part of the bead from the dragon box to install a new lightsaber is quite difficult and takes a lot of time and effort. This pearl appears in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Star Wars: The old republican video games and new canonical material, first with the Jedi Heir book, and now with Mandalorean. The episode proves that John Favraux and Dave Philoney are retreating from the deep history of Star Wars to tell their new stories.
