Warning - This article contains minor spoilers for The Mandalorian Season 2.
Back in the very first episode of The Mandalorian , the smash hit Star Wars series on Disney+, the title character, bounty hunter Din Djarin tracks his target to a remote ice planet and apprehends him to collect his reward.
That particular planet was later revealed to be called Maldo Kreis through an interview with Mando showrunner, Jon Favreau. It's a mainly inhospitble ice world in the outer rim with seemingly few civilized settlements. Dangerous creatures called Ravinaks lurk below the surcace of the ice.
And as Din Djarin dscovered in this week's episode , Maldo Kries is even more hazardous than it initally appears.
In Chapter 10, "The Passenger" of The Mandalorian , a close-up shot of the Razor Crest's onboard computer can be seen. On the screen, a planet is displayed with Aurebesh text next to it. Translated, the Aurebesh reads "Maldo Kreis."
An eagle-eyed Reddit user made the spot and deciphered the text.
WHAT THIS MEANS
Star Wars has no shortage of ice planets in its forty-plus year history. Ilum and Hoth most easily come to mind but, due to it's continued appearance in The Mandalorian, Maldo Kreis is sure to gain additional noteriety among fans.
Maldo Kreis seems to be quite the dangerous place. With the aforementioned Ravinaks hanging out beneath the ice as well as the massive spiders that dwell in subterranean caves, no one's naming Maldo Kreis the next hot tourist spot in the galaxy, that's for sure!
Where will Djarin's quest take him next? Is it possible that his journey to find the Child's own kind will eventually lead him to Yoda's fabled and mysterious home planet?
The Mandalorian season two is now streaming on Disney+ and the next episode arrives November 13, 2020.
