The end of the miniseries saw Grogu, Mando’s young charge, choose to return to him after previously departing his side to train with the Jedi Master Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). The two then left Tatooine, with Mando going on a quest to visit “the living waters” under the planet Mandore in order to regain his honor and become a Mandalorian again. The hero will face plenty of obstacles in his quest, chief of which being other members from the people, with the trailer teasing a battle between Djarin and other stoic, armored warriors.
