‘Mandalorian’ Season 3 could fix the worst character in ‘The Last Jedi’


#Mando has the #Darksaber now, so does he still need that beskar spear? #Hopefully, the answer is no, because a new theory suggests he might not hold onto the weapon for long. #According to a compelling new theory, in The #Mandalorian #Season 3, #Din #Djarin could encounter a character from the #Star #Wars sequels — and it may not go very well for our beskar-clad hero.

The theory — #TikTok user #Caley #Carpenter recently rewatched The #Last #Jedi and noticed something weird. #Captain #Phasma’s weapon in the sequels looks a lot like the beskar spear from The #Mandalorian #Season 2.

#For comparison, here’s #Captain #Phasma:

#And here’s The #Mandalorian again with the beskar spear:

#Mando meets the spear.#Lucasfilm

#You can probably guess where this is going. #Caley #Carpenter argues that at some point (maybe in The #Mandalorian #Season 3), #Din #Djarin will encounter #Captain #Phasma. #She’ll kick his butt and take the spear for herself. #It’s a fun theory, but there’s one major issue: #We already know a lot about #Phasma’s weapon, and it’s not a beskar spear.

#According to the #Star #Wars #Visual #Dictionary, #Phasma wields a “quicksilver baton.” #This is a surprisingly high-tech weapon. #According to #Wookiepedia, “The baton’s durable cylinder was made from a collapsible micromesh matrix held in a containment field.” #In other words, it’s not just a spear made of really strong space metal.

The #Mandalorian #Season 3 can retcon #Captain #Phasma

Then again, there’s a long history of #Star #Wars rewriting its own history through the use of retcon. #So if #Dave #Filoni and #Jon #Favreau decide that #Phasma’s baton was actually #Mando’s #Beskar spear that’s good enough for us. (#Fun fact: #According to #Star #Wars canon, #Phasma’s armor isn’t beskar either. #It was actually made using scrap metal taken from #Emperor #Palpatine’s old yacht.)

#More important, bringing #Captain #Phasma into The #Mandalorian could finally do justice to one of the coolest characters in the #Star #Wars sequels who never got their due. #In the movies, #Phasma is a faceless #First #Order captain who ends up losing pretty easily in a fight with the good guys, but this was a huge waste of #Game of #Thrones actor #Gwendoline #Christie and also of a very cool character…

#Why #Phasma belongs in The #Mandalorian #Season 3

#Phasma grew up on #Parnassos, a planet in the #Unknown #Regions that was colonized by a mining corporation. #This ultimately led to a nuclear disaster that devastated what was once a green landscape. #In this harsh environment, #Phasma became a powerful warrior and leader of her clan’s military. #Her quicksilver baton is a high-tech nod to her warrior origins.

#Phasma eventually joined the #First #Order after she met #General #Hux and helped him find his ship — betraying her family in the process — but it’s possible she encountered #Din #Djarin before that happened. #After all, #Parnassos feels like the perfect location for a #Mandalorian side-quest in #Season 3, where #Mando could help the locals in exchange for help before running afoul of #Phasma and losing his spear in the process.

The timelines also seem to line up. #We don’t technically know #Phasma’s age, but #Gwendoline #Christie was roughly 40 years old when The #Last #Jedi came out. #That movie takes place in 34 ABY, while The #Mandalorian #Season 1 was set in 9 ABY. #So assuming #Phasma was also 40 in the sequels, she’d be 15 (or maybe 16 or even 17) in The #Mandalorian #Season 3.

#Encountering #Mando would give #Phasma a much more interesting backstory while giving her weapon in The #Last #Jedi a stronger connection to #Star #Wars history. #It might be a stretch, but if anyone can do it, it’s the team behind The #Mandalorian — plus, a #Season 3 spinoff series about young #Phasma sounds awesome.

The #Mandalorian #Season 3 is expected to premiere in early 2022.
