The Mandalorian takes Star Wars fans to a planet that many would call home. Whether you love movies, comics or role-playing games from Star Wars, you will surely understand the importance of Tatooine.
After creating the guides of the first, second, third e room episode, the time has come for the fifth.
Since many have not yet seen The Mandalorian episode when this guide is released, we thought we would not do a spoilery review. We will follow the series by telling you the background and everything you might not know about the world of Star Wars. You are ready? Welcome to the Mandalorian.
Tatooine is a desert world located in a binary star system in the Arkanis Sector of the Outer Rim Territories, and was the most important of the worlds of the Spice Triangle. It is inhabited by the poor local population whose main activity is the cultivation of humidity. Other activities include the retail sale of used equipment and the trafficking of scrap. The planet is located along the 5709-DC shipping lane, an appendage of the Triellus Trade Route, which in turn connects to the Sisar Way. The planet is also not far from the Via Corelliana. It has its own navigation system.
Orbiting around two suns, Tattoo I e Tattoo II, the planet is covered with deserts and rock formations, and the days are extremely dry and bright. It is in fact so strongly illuminated by its suns that from space it can also look like a star. This is the case of the first people who discovered Tatooine, who mistook it for a star until some explorers landed there and discovered that it was a desert planet. Due to the extreme conditions, only a relatively mild region of the northern hemisphere is habitable, and less than 1% of the planet's surface is covered with water.
The inhabitants of Tatooine include many different species from different parts of the galaxy, as can be seen by taking a look at the numerous bars and wineries in the cities. Most of the creatures on the planet love to gamble and wager on almost anything, especially racing podracer. This could confirm the fact that the planet has long been under the control of hutt. Tatooine is known for making native inhabitants (particularly Middle Aged Humans or older) appear to be ten years or older than they really are due to the two suns and the difficult climate.
The Hutts were a sentient alien species, with a slimy appearance, very similar to snails. Greedy and unscrupulous, they were often involved in criminal activity. Their native language, Huttese, was a lingua franca of organized crime in the Galaxy, widespread in the Outer Rim.
The Hutt are generally considered Gastropods because of their form of locomotion, moving on the tail. They have two arms and a wide mouth to eat food. Their skin is extremely thick, capable of resisting blaster shots, and they have multiple internal organs. The Hutt are hermaphrodites, bringing both male and female sexual characteristics and both reproductive organs. Generally the Hutt are considered male but in some cases some recognize themselves as female. It is not known whether this occurs for genetic reasons or for personal choice. The Hutt are not edible as not even the sarlacc can digest them.
After the devastation of their home planet, the Hutts migrated to a planet called Evocar, installing a business system that heavily involved the peaceful natives. The Hutt gave the planet its name Nal Hutta - “Glorious Jewel” in Huttese. Nal Hutta then became the capital of Space Hutt, the empire of the species. The moon of the planet, Nar Shaddaa, was known mainly for the great crime trafficking.

This episode was really cool. There have been several quotes and reinterpretations from Episodes IV e I. I really appreciated it.
Very true! I was so excited when I saw Tatooine.
