The Mandalorian season 2 finale postcredits scene explained
Season 2 of The Mandalorian came to its wild conclusion on Disney Plus Friday, surprising us all with a dramatic postcredits scene that sets up a wild new status quo in the Star Wars underworld and an exciting teaser for season 3.
Let’s dive into a wretched hive of SPOILERS. This show is set around five years after Return of the Jedi.
Assassin Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) bursts into the throneroom of the Jabba the Hutt’s former palace on Tatooine, where Jabba’s Twi’lek majordomo Bib Fortuna (Matthew Wood) sits in the Hutt’s old spot. Shand kills his guards and frees a dancer.
Jabba was choked to death by Leia Organa in Return of the Jedi, and Fortuna has apparently taken over as the planet’s crime lord. He’s also put on some weight, suggesting he’s been in charge for some time.
Bounty hunter Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) follows shortly afterwards, with Fortuna expressing surprise at his return. Boba guns down the Twi’lek and sits on his throne. It seems Tatooine has a new crime lord.
“The Book of Boba Fett: Coming December 2021” — it’s likely this is a tease of season 3, given the show’s “chapter” episode naming convention and the fact that we know the next season is coming next December. There are also so many Disney Plus Star Wars shows on the way already.
Lucasfilm didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
