As a legendary Muppet as soon as mentioned, “It’s not straightforward being inexperienced,” and that’s definitely true for the fan-favorite and freakishly cute co-star of Disney’s The Mandalorian, Grogu. Seeing the little inexperienced man return for the final two episodes of Disney’s most up-to-date Star Wars undertaking, The Book of Boba Fett, was an sudden however welcome addition to the present’s steadily growing solid of characters.
However, greater than fan service, Grogu’s inclusion in The Book of Boba Fett exhibits that Disney shouldn’t be completed with the character but and that there’s nonetheless a lot extra of his story to inform. While the obvious place to proceed Grogu’s story can be together with his pal Din Djarin (performed by Pedro Pascal) within the upcoming The Mandalorian season 3, that is probably not the one place that followers could get to see him.
If the Marvel Cinematic Universe has proven us something, it is that lately, the folks at Disney are big followers of crossovers. In reality, outdoors the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Wars, there have been hints that characters from Disney’s personal 2017 reboot of Ducktales could spin off into different exhibits, such because the rumored reboot of Darkwing Duck. So, with that in thoughts, what’s to cease Grogu from showing in different upcoming Star Wars tasks such because the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi or Ahsoka collection? The reply to that query is probably not as troublesome to think about as one would possibly assume.
Where Else Could Grogu Appear?
Of the myriad of identified Star Wars-related tasks coming to Disney+ and theaters, the one one that may be successfully dominated out for potential Grogu appearances is The Acolyte (which at this level doesn’t have a launch date). The motive for that is that the present’s official description says it is set through the “High Republic Era,” which, in line with the official Star Wars canon timeline, is earlier than the occasions of 1999’s The Phantom Menace.
That being mentioned, one should not be so fast to depend out the looks of Grogu in The Acolyte utterly, because it was acknowledged upon his introduction within the first episode of The Mandalorian that regardless of the little man’s look, he’s over fifty years outdated. The occasions of The Phantom Menace happen roughly thirty-two years earlier than the Battle of Yavin (as seen in 1977’s A New Hope), whereas the occasions of The Mandalorian happen 9 years after the Battle of Yavin. That implies that there are roughly 9 years of unaccounted time relating to the occasions of Grogu’s life. If Grogu is about to look in The Acolyte, it’s solely doable that audiences may see Grogu as a new child or a toddler. A baby not simply in look, however age as properly.
There are many causes for this, and Disney has been no stranger to messing with followers’ expectations (equivalent to when The Incredible Hulk appeared in all of the trailers for Avengers: Infinity War), however finally because of this on the finish of the day, something can occur. Given Grogu ‘s freakishly cute nature and his proclivity for touring the galaxy, it is possible that followers can count on him to look anyplace at any time. With his lengthy lifespan, he may doubtlessly be current for all of the upcoming main occasions within the Star Wars universe.
What does this imply for Grogu?
The factor to recollect about Grogu when speculating the place his story will finally go and the place he’ll finally seem is that the little man has the potential to dwell a really, very lengthy life. The solely different notable member of his species, the Jedi Grand Master Yoda, by his personal admission, was acknowledged to be over 9 hundred years outdated when he died in 1983’s Return of the Jedi. With this in thoughts, this can be very possible that Grogu will outlive each single identified character within the Star Wars universe, save for just a few. Luke Skywalker knew this to be true higher than most, as he mentioned to Grogu in episode six of The Book of Boba Fett, “A short while for you is a lifetime for another person.”
After all, if Grogu remains to be thought-about a child at fifty years of age, then it is going to greater than possible take one other fifty years of in-universe time for him to develop out of that section of his life, by which period most of the characters everyone knows and love could have handed on. Regardless, as a child, a toddler, or an grownup, very similar to Yoda earlier than him, Grogu will little doubt proceed to endear himself to audiences worldwide no matter the place he seems.
