Star Wars: These details prove the fall of the Empire had terrible consequences for Tatooine


The planet Tatooine has definitely never been spared in the Star Wars saga!

Return of the Jedi marked the outcome of the first trilogy but especially the defeat of the Empire erected by Darth Sidious . This victory for the Rebel Alliance heralded better days across the galaxy until the resurgence of the dark side in The Force Awakens and the creation of the First Order. However, things had started to get worse long before the return of the fear regime established by Kylo Ren and the Supreme Leader, Snoke. This is evidenced in particular by season 2 of The Mandalorian and the adventures through which Din Djarin ( Pedro Pascal ). On several occasions, Baby Yoda’s protector has crossed the far reaches of the galaxy, the situation of indigenous peoples being particularly critical. This was particularly the case in episode 1 of season 2 of The Mandalorian when the latter met the Sheriff Cobb on Tatooine.

The fate of this planet has always had a preponderant place in the universe Star Wars . Nevertheless, between chapters VI and VII of Star Wars , it is clear that the departure of the Empire didn’t really change things on the spot. We see it in particular through the flashback presented at the beginning of season 2 of The Mandalorian , when we discover how Mos Pelgo finally became a mining town after the victory. of the Rebel Alliance, or the problems that the Sand Men regularly cause in the village. On the other hand, the advent of the New Republic did not end crime and gangs. Evidenced by the post-credits scene during which

Boba Fett after a very noticed return in season 2 of The Mandalorian , takes over the reins of a mafia once dominated by Jabba the Hutt.

If the last example could be found in the abolition of slavery by the Empire, this still carries some contradictions, the regime established by Palpatine having above all sought to “protect” the forced laborers of Tatooine from the barons of the intergalactic underworld. At the end of Return of the Jedi , these populations were therefore not freed from the yoke of the threat since they were delivered to a formidable mafia. So many terrible consequences caused by the fall of the Empire on Tatooine and which allow us to doubt the influence that the New Republic finally had after his proclamation!
