The Mandalorian Makes Major Baby Yoda Reveal

The Mandalorian Makes Major Baby Yoda Reveal”

Dave Filoni just delivered a shot of pure Star Wars straight into our eyeballs, and damn, it felt good.

It centered around Din Djarin (a.k.a. Mando) and Baby Yoda (more on that name, in a bit) traveling to the forest planet of Corvus in search of Ahsoka Tano, whom he hopes will tell him where to find the Jedi.

(RIP Yaddle, I guess?) Who took Grogu from the Temple and hid him for all these years, and how did he end up on Arvala-7 and on Gideon's radar?

Ahsoka's refusal to train Grogu makes sense in the context of Anakin's fall, and it's also possible that she's sending Mando on a wild goose chase to Tython, knowing that it's unlikely any Jedi will answer Grogu and reveal themselves if they've been hidden this long. With her on the scene, Mando and Baby Yoda got a ton of information about what in the kriff is going on.

"I've seen what feelings do to a fully trained Jedi Knight", Ahsoka says.
