The latest episode of Star Wars: The Mandalorian revealed some major new details in "Chapter 14: The Tragedy," the latest episode in the second season on Disney+, but fans are likely curious about the Jedi that Baby Yoda AKA Grogu reached out to on the Jedi Temple. After Din Djarin traveled with the Child to Tython to fulfill his quest given by Ahsoka Tano in the last episode, the group was bombarded by some shocking returning characters as well as an invasion from Moff Gideon's Imperial troops. After failing to protect Grogu from abduction, Djarin can only watch as the Child gets taken — but not after using his Force abilities to request aid from a mysterious Jedi.
Fans are still buzzing from last week’s brush with Ahsoka. But, it looks like someone else will be getting a chance to mold the young alien into the Jedi that he appears to be on the road to becoming. Check out the different characters he could possibly be getting help from down below!
Chapter 14 director Robert Rodriguez's talked to SFX Magazine about how executive producer Jon Favreau had different plans for this outing. But, the filmmaker was called up because they were in a bind.
The new episode of #TheMandalorian made one thing very clear:December 4, 2020
"I’m friends with Jon Favreau and he needed a last-minute replacement for a director," Rodriguez explained. "And so I said, ‘Sure, I'll come play in the Star Wars universe!’ What a dream. And it's fulfilled all my... it’s beyond my expectations, I mean, it was SO fun, you can’t imagine what it's like to walk on a set that has the classic look of The Empire Strikes Back feel and look. It’s right after that era, right after the Return of the Jedi. It's that era. So you really feel like you just walked into your childhood."
He continued, "All of a sudden you go up and touch things and go, ‘That's the thing that Han Solo talked into when he shot the machine and told the stormtroopers not to come up’. I was like, ‘Wow, I thought I recognized that!’ It's just a really strange, exhilarating experience to be in your childhood sets for real. And getting to make action! It's really cool... The visual language is so embedded in our heads. So I have one of those [selfies] ‘Look, it’s me next to a control panel, isn’t that cool?’ It was so fun."
What do you think of The Mandalorian this season? Let us know down in the comments!
Wouldn't that be something? Technically, Luke is out there and fans would absolutely lose it if this were to come to pass. However, it would be kind of a long shot to see Mark Hamill stepping in for the Disney+ series. The fans can dream though!prevnext
This is a popular pick with fans right now. With Ahsoka turning up, a lot of people immediately jumped to Rebels and that strange thread left dangling at the end of the animated series... Anything could happen, and this would be legitimately amazing to see.prevnext
Cal Kestis is a fun pick here as well. The protagonist of Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order is someone that fans want to know more about going forward. He's young in his training, but maybe he would be up for the challenge.prevnext
This one is sneaky, as Palpatine has been lurking in the shadows all this time. It would be one way to tie things into the "main storyline" of the films. But, also, there would be a ton of explaining to do with the "Big Bad" showing up in s spinoff show.prevnext
So... this is a bit of a stretch, but he is technically out there. (Albeit 4-5 years old???) Still, a Jedi in training might be able to hear that message out there. But, baby Ben is probably not going to ride in for the rescue.prev
