Let's go back to the last episode of season 2. Mando and his team burst onto Moff Gideon's ship to retrieve Grogu. After a fierce battle, the child is secured and the series antagonist handcuffed on the bridge. An ideal ending without counting the arrival of a legion of Dark Trooper who were about to cause carnage. Then comes a lone X-Wing, but not just any, that of Luke Skywalker.

The sequel, we know it. Luke destroys the droids Jedi style and offers Mando to train the child. The Mandalorian therefore decides to leave his protege to the Jedi.sion is complete. It seems a logical step in the journey of baby Yoda (who prefers to be called Grogu) . We are a few years after the events of Return of the Jedi and Luke is trying to rebuild a new generation. The knights are few and the force seems extremely powerful in Grogu. Power that brings the theory of midi-chlorians back to the table. The main character of the series not being able to provide training, the writing decision is therefore the fairest.
Grogu, the star of the series
The success of The Mandalorian has exceeded all expectations and it is hardly safe to say that the near instantaneous popularity of baby Yoda has a lot to do with it. The series strengthened Disney + 's position as a streaming service andis almost unanimous among Star Wars fans. A question now arises. As season 3 is announced , what will become of it without this little be green? It's hard to imagine equal success without this secret weapon.
Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni have established themselves as excellent directors for this Star Wars series. Creating a series in the universe without relying on famous characters was a tall order. Challenge brilliantly met, thanks to the child, but also to the adventures of Mando which convinced fans and occasional spectators alike. Will we see the management of the life of the post Grogu Mandalorian? Are the directors going to close the chapter or bring Grogu back with a spin? Will Grand Admiral Thrawn make an appearance after being named in Season 2? As Grandmaster Y would sayoda: “Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future. "
In any case, season 3 should teach us more about the reconquest of Mandalore and the fate of the famous black saber in possession of our hero to the chagrin of Bo-Katan who just can't accept it as a gift. There is no shortage of possible plots and twists and in view of the quality of the first two seasons, we can count on the production team to be up to the challenge that awaits them.
Star Wars au petit screen
With the success of The Mandalorian, opens the way of a whole bunch of series on the universe of Star Wars. This one is so big that Disney and Lucasfilm are spoiled for choice. On the menu, the spins off Ashoka and the rangers of the New Republic, but also the book of Boba Fett, Obi-wan and many others. Since some of these series are set at the same time as The Mandalorian, there's a very good chance that Grogu returns to the screen to the delight of his fans.
