In Star Wars, you’re at all times questioning what’s taking place off-screen. The place was Luke when this was taking place? Did Rey know about this? Wouldn’t Yoda be round right now? It’s each the blessing and curse of telling new stories in a longtime canon, and Dave Filoni thinks that two main items of Star Wars lore aren’t as linked as it’s possible you’ll suppose.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Filoni—who co-created The Clone Wars with George Lucas and is a producer and director on The Mandalorian—was requested if he’s found out the place Grogu is throughout the sequel trilogy. This is a very reasonable query; after all, the rationale Rey is such a vital character is as a result of she’s so deeply related to the Power. In truth, she turns into what many characters discuss with as “The Final Jedi.” So the concept that there could be slightly inexperienced man flying round who’s equally robust with the Power does make you marvel a bit. Right here’s what Filoni needed to say.
“That’s an amazing query, and we discuss many alternative issues,” he informed the commerce. “That’s a query for a bunch of characters by the way in which, not simply Grogu. The place are they throughout these occasions? If something, having made The Clone Wars and weaving a story so intricately between two films that have been a lot nearer collectively, I’ve realized that there’s expansive room on this galaxy for us to inform tales and have characters doing issues.”
Then, in traditional Filoni trend (he even did this to us in our interview with him this week) he introduced it again to the unique trilogy. “As a child, when Yoda stated, ‘When gone am I, the final of the Jedi will you be,’ to Luke, I took that very actually,” Filoni defined. “Properly, now we all know that’s something however true. There are a lot of totally different individuals that would wield the Force, and perhaps Luke is the final Jedi so far as what Yoda would think about a Jedi. So we’ll simply have to attend and see how the story evolves and what is smart. However in my expertise, there’s undoubtedly a approach to weave every part collectively and make it thrilling. It’s attainable it will by no means even must cross over with what we noticed [in the sequel trilogy] if the story has us some other place.”
And there’s the meat of it proper there on the finish: “it’s attainable it will by no means even must cross over with what we noticed if the story has us some other place.” As a result of if The Mandalorian keeps going on for season after season like creator Jon Favreau has steered, finally the 20-ish years between Return of the Jedi and The Power Awakens that it’s at present taking place in will finish. And you need to suppose individuals will hear about Starkiller Base destroying planets, itself being destroyed, and that lone Jedi who stood up in opposition to a complete fleet to emerge victorious.

However, if Mando and Grogu are off a trillion miles away preventing Grand Admiral Thrawn with Ahsoka, perhaps they don’t get the memo—and the query then turns into, will that hassle Star Wars followers who take discover?
