The Mandalorian: where is Grogu during the Star Wars sequels?

Dave Filoni might have a way to connect all the loose ends of one of the biggest Star Wars mysteries from The Mandalorian in an exciting way.

The Mandalorian: where is Grogu during the Star Wars sequels?

Grogu is a baby of Yoda's race, which means he has a life expectancy of about 1,000 years. The Mandalorian's fellow adventurer, sensitive to the Force, trained in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant in the days of the Galactic Republic and resumed his studies after the fall of the Empire, with Luke as his teacher. The question is, where was he at the time of the aftermath?

Dave Filoni, writer, director, and executive producer of The Mandalorian has spoken about it in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter: ”That’s a question for a bunch of characters by the way, not just Grogu. Where are they during these events? If anything, having made The Clone Wars and weaving a tale so intricately between two movies that were much closer together, I’ve learned that there’s expansive room in this galaxy for us to tell stories and have characters doing things.”

Who is a Jedi and who is not?

Contradictions in Star Wars canon are not new. The creators have had to fit events into different timelines, just as George Lucas himself did with the prequels. Filoni remembered Yoda's conversation with Luke before he died when he told him that after his departure he would be the last Jedi. “I took that very literally. Well, now we know that’s anything but true. There are many different people that could wield the force, and maybe Luke is the last Jedi as far as what Yoda would consider a Jedi.”

And what about Grogu? "We’ll just have to wait and see how the story evolves and what makes sense. But in my experience, there’s definitely a way to weave everything together and make it exciting. It’s possible it would never even have to cross over with what we saw [in the sequel trilogy] if the story has us somewhere else.”

The Mandalorian has premiered its third season on Disney+. The eight episodes will air every Wednesday on the platform.
