New Baby Yoda “Galactic Snackin” Star Wars Toy Pays Tribute to Grogu’s Most Monstrous Moments

One of the great joys of the first season of The Mandalorian was watching Grogu eat. We loved the scene where he sipped from a bowl of broth while Mando and Cara Dune fought outside a cantina. We even giggled when he ate that space slug on Arvala-7 (although, in retrospect, perhaps we shouldn’t have). These were charming moments that fleshed out the character’s toddler-like personality. Then the eggs happened. In season two, fans learned about Grogu’s unique appetite for cruelty. Not only did he steal a kid’s cookies and eat them in front of him, he also wasted no…

The Mandalorian: What’s Next for Grogu?

This Star Wars: The Mandalorian article contains spoilers. The seeing stone on Tython has done its job: Grogu is now in the care of the galaxy’s greatest Jedi, Luke Skywalker himself. The Mandalorian‘s finale, “The Rescue,” brings Luke in as both a surprise connection to the larger saga and a new mentor for the child. And the baby shows an immediate affinity for Luke, reaching out to touch even the screen Luke is shown on. They seem like a good match. The episode is a delightful return of the saga’s leading man but also one that leaves us with lots…

Star Wars: Did Kylo Ren Kill Grogu After The Mandalorian?

This Star Wars: The Mandalorian article contains spoilers. I know. No one really wants to consider the edgiest villain in the galaxy touching a hair on Grogu’s head with malice. But The Mandalorian takes place at a time when the events of the Sequel Trilogy are already being seeded. All this, the lawless Outer Rim and the ineffective New Republic police, will be swallowed up by the First Order eventually. And Grogu has a long enough lifespan to see this and many other governments rise and fall. How might his story intersect with the Sequel Trilogy timeline? Just in case…

The Mandalorian: Is Luke Skywalker the Jedi Who Will Find Grogu?

This Star Wars: The Mandalorian article contains spoilers. When Din Djarin first met Grogu, he probably knew less about Star Wars than anyone reading this article. The Jedi were a mystery to him, known to the Mandalorians only as ancient sorcerer enemies. But as we know — and as Din has finally learned — Grogu has deep ties to the Jedi. After Ahsoka Tano reveals Grogu’s past as a Jedi youngling who was forced to go into hiding during Order 66, she sends the duo to the planet Tython, the birthplace of the Jedi Order, so that Grogu may use…

The Mandalorian: Is Mace Windu the Jedi Who Will Find Grogu?

Fan theories are running rampant as we approach the finale of The Mandalorian. Which Jedi heard Grogu’s call at the seeing stone on Tython? The better question perhaps is: does it really matter when there’s no way Disney will break up the core relationship of the show? That said, with someone surely having heard Grogu’s call and dead characters tending to come back to life in Star Wars, the latest Jedi theory suggests that it’s Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) who will come to the child’s rescue. The theory has grown in popularity so much that an Instagram user even…

The Mandalorian: Is Cal Kestis the Jedi Who Will Find Grogu?

This Star Wars article contains spoilers. Ever since Ahsoka Tano sent Mando and Grogu to Tython to find a Jedi who could train the little baby Yoda, fans have been speculating whether this means that yet another classic character from the saga is set to appear on The Mandalorian. At a time when there are so few Jedi left in the galaxy, the list of potential cameos is short, and at the very top is Luke Skywalker, who is arguably the most powerful Jedi still active five years after Return of the Jedi. Other possibilities include fan-favorite Rebels protagonist Ezra…

The Mandalorian: Which Jedi Will Find Grogu?

This Star Wars: The Mandalorian article contains spoilers. Baby Yoda has a big adventure ahead of him. In Chapter 13 of The Mandalorian, “The Jedi,” the audience and Din Djarin both learn two important pieces of information. First, the kid’s name is Grogu. Perhaps it’ll catch on as well as Baby Yoda did? Second, Ahsoka Tano tells Din to take the Force-sensitive toddler to the old Jedi Temple on the planet Tython, where he’ll be able to reach out to other Jedi across the galaxy. Din Djarin has plenty of reason to continue this journey with the baby. He’s grown…

This Star Wars: The Mandalorian article contains spoilers. After a year of speculation, Chapter 13 of The Mandalorian, suitably titled “The Jedi,” has finally given fans some of the answers they’ve been searching for.

Meet Grogu! The straightforward way “The Jedi” answers so many of our questions is actually a bit shocking. In the Disney era, we’ve all gotten pretty used to toybox mysteries in…
