Reddit Is All In On The Mandalorian Season 3 If That Is Indeed Coruscant

There's a new trailer for the third season of "The Mandalorian," and that means "Star Wars" fans everywhere are coming together to find every small detail they can from the new trailer.

And there are a lot of new details we can see from the trailer, including the return of characters like Captain Carson Teva (Paul Sun-Hyung Lee), Dr. Pershing (Omid Abtahi), Peli Motto (Amy Sedaris), Greef Karga (Carl Weathers), and more.

We also saw an allusion to the past of "The Mandalorian" in the form of a statue of IG-11 (Taika Waititi) commemorating his sacrifice, as well as the return of the iconic B1 droids, which are often the butt of jokes in series such as "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and "Star Wars: The Bad Batch."

However, there's one detail in particular that fans on Reddit found particularly interesting and believe might hint at what might be happening in "The Mandalorian" Season 3.

Fans on Reddit think the city shown in the trailer is Coruscant

At about one minute into the trailer, we see a bustling city with tall skyscrapers and flying ships everywhere. Although the galaxy likely holds more than one city with that description, the most iconic one in "Star Wars" is almost definitely Coruscant, which is a planet entirely covered by a giant city.

On Reddit, user u/Jedi_Pacman simply exclaimed, "Coruscant!!!", with user u/SamsungAppleOnePlus adding, "Post Episode 6 Coruscant!!" This is notable because, at least in the "Star Wars" shows and films, we have never seen the city planet chronologically after "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi." This means that we would get to see Coruscant at its most recent, potentially gaining news on what has happened there since the dismantling of the Empire and the death of Emperor Palpatine.

Another Redditor, u/FN-1701AgentGodzilla wrote, "I hope we get it post-TRoS too, since sooooo many people still think it was destroyed in TFA. I hate that they made the surface of Hosnian Prime so similar to Coruscant via the massive skyscrapers." This is referring to a scene in "The Force Awakens" in which the First Order destroys the similar-looking city planet, which led many to believe Coruscant was no more.

Fans hope Coruscant is a sign of more New Republic development

As has been shown recently in the 2022 series "Andor," Coruscant is where a lot of the franchise's politics take place, as it is the home of whatever government tends to rule the galaxy at the time, whether it be good or evil. Since "The Mandalorian" takes place after the Galactic Empire but before the rise of the First Order, this may be one of the few times we get to see the planet in relative peace, though we know that this peace will be short-lived.

Of course, fans on Reddit are excited by this possibility. User u/aLittleDoober wrote, "I'm really hoping the return of Coruscant delivers on some much [needed] New Republic development."

Responding to this comment, Redditor u/Strategist40 wrote, "We could only hope. Gonna be weird with it just being a 'planet' though considering the New Republic's stupid decision of not making it the galactic capital." This is because the New Republic decided to make their home planet Hosnian Prime, which doesn't seem to appear in any of the trailers for "The Mandalorian" Season 3 so far.

Some fans aren't convinced the shown planet is Coruscant

Although many people believe the planet is Coruscant and are excited by the prospect, others aren't as convinced.

User u/____KyloRen____ believes the planet might actually be Hosnian Prime, which also features lots of skyscrapers and, being the capital of the New Republic, might make more sense to feature if they're indeed delving into that government's politics. They write, "Could technically be Hosnian Prime which also has pretty urban landscapes."

Redditor u/ergistor isn't convinced the planet is either of those two, however, writing, "I don't think that's Coruscant. I think it's Chandrilla ... " Despite misspelling the planet's name, u/ergistor might be right since the planet was referenced in "Andor." With this new relevance to Chandrila, it might be time to finally get a closer look at the planet, especially since it served as the first capital of the New Republic before it was ultimately moved to Hosnian Prime.

"The Mandalorian" Season 3 premieres on Disney+ on March 1.
