In this Star Wars theory video, we look at Grogu (Baby Yoda) from the Mandalorian and why Yoda never mentioned him in the original trilogy. Aside from the obvious reason that George Lucas hadn’t created Grogu at the time and that he is the creation of Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, we look at in-universe reasons. In the Mandalorian Season 2, Ahsoka Tano says that Grogu was rescued and hidden after Order 66.
We don’t know who saved him although some say Anakin Skywalker spared him, and others believe it was Mace Windu or Jocasta Nu. Either way, there is a very specific reason Yoda never brought him up. We explore 3 Star Wars theories and why from Dagobah, Yoda kept silent about him.
