Reminder: The Planet Where The Mandalorian Meets Kuiil is Not Tatooine

We’re four episodes into The Mandalorian live-action series on Disney+ and there are some fans out there in the community that think Tatooine is one of the locations we’ve seen the action take place on. It’s a pretty easy assumption to make on the part of the casual fan/observer – the familiar desert landscape, the presence of Jawas and their hulking Sandcrawler, etc.

Truth is, the planet where the Mandalorian meets up with the character Kuiil (voiced by Nick Nolte) on his bounty assignment is not Tatooine. The planet is called Arvala-7 as listed in the official Databank entry for Kuiil.

We just wanted to take a moment to clear up this confusion for members of that segment of the Star Wars community.
