The famous planet has yet to make an appearance in the series
Dagobah, a planet filled with seemingly harmless swamps and forest is also extremely strong with the Force. It’s a special place that’s very close to Star Wars fans’ hearts.
This was the first place where we got to see Grand Master Yoda in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980). This was also where the then 700-year-old Jedi Master brought in and trained Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). The famous “X-wing in the swamp took place here.”
Adding it to The Mandelorian
It won’t be a surprise if The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau and executive producer Dave Filoni might think of making a return to the famous planet in the upcoming 3rd season of The Mandalorian or any of it’s spinoffs. Both Favreau and Filoni have been doing great fan service with the show, and have brought back favourites such as bounty hunter Boba Fett (currently played by Temuera Morrison), and iconic animated characters like Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) and Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff).
The Thrawn Trilogy
So how will they add this to the story. If they adapt Star Wars Legends Thrawn Trilogy by Timothy Zahn – Heit to the Empire, Dark Force Rising and The Last Command, they can bring Dagobah back into the picture.
In these three novels, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia face off against the Imperial remnant and go through a bunch of adventures and misadventures.
As Luke has already returned at the end of The Mandalorian season 2 (spoiler alert) as Grogu’s (aka The Child or Baby Yoda) new Jedi Master, it could mean that there could be another season or a spinoff show. Neither Favreau nor Filoni has confirmed this, but it could happen. If they do decide on more seasons, adapting the Thrawn Trilogy would be a good idea. We will also get to see Han Solo and Princess Leia in action once again.
