What Happened to The Mandalorian's Razorcrown Ship
The Mandalorian's Razorcrown battleship has already taken its place among other iconic Star Wars ships. But why doesn't he pilot it in season 3 of The Mandalorian?
Din Djarin and Grogu will not be traveling in The Mandalorian Season 3 in the classic ST-70 class Razor Crest. The Razor Crest has been Din's bread and butter in both seasons of The Mandalorian, as it has everything a bounty hunter could ever want. The spacious cargo hold is perfect for Din's work, but it's unclear if the built-in carbonate freezer was his modification. Before the Empire, the Razor Crest was built as a military starship by an unknown manufacturer. It was used for surprise patrols at the local level before it fell into Ding's hands.
Early in The Mandalorian season 1, a group of Jawas on Arvala-7 completely strips the Razor Crest. It was also almost completely destroyed by the white space spider in The Mandalorian season 2. All in all, Din never rests aboard his ship. He was forced to make and pay for several ad hoc repairs to the Razor Crest, so by The Mandalorian season 2, the ship was limping along on its final legs. Since Din largely abandoned bounty hunters In sending Grogu back to the Jedi, many of his ship's practical functions were underused.
The Mandalorian's Ship Was Destroyed By The Empire In Season 2
In one of the most shocking twists of The Mandalorian season 2, Razorcrown is suddenly blown up by the Empire in Chapter 14, "Tragedy". On the fabled Jedi planet Tython, Grogu sits on a guidestone, trying to make contact with other Force-sensitive beings. But when Din tries to give Grogu time to make a connection, an explosion from Moff Gideon's cruiser destroys the Razor Crest. In a matter of moments, all that remains of Ding and Grogu's home is ash and charred metal. The only hull Din can salvage is the small control ball that Grogu loves to play with.
There is nothing Din can do to avoid losing the Razor Crest. When they reached Tython, Din told Grogu that there was nowhere on the mountain for the Razor Crest to land and that they had to land farther down the mountain. Since Tython is uninhabited, Din doesn't expect anyone to follow them. He had the Razor Crest parked in the open, making it an easy target for Moff Gideon's light cruiser. But despite the loss, Ding moved quickly to free Grogu from the clutches of Moff Gideon.
How Din Djarin Got A New Ship (And What Is It?)
In The Book of Boba Fett, Ding is determined to get a razor sigil identical to his old razor sigil. In his view, now that he's back in his bounty hunter business, it makes sense to buy another one. But Peli Motto has different plans for him. Instead of buying him another Razor Crest — or anything like that — she fitted him with a modified Naboo N-1 starfighter. Considering how different it is from a gunship, it took Din quite a while to figure out what to do with the speed of the N-1 starfighter. But now he's ready for any melee that comes up in The Mandalorian season 3.
