    Okay, I honestly don't get why people are so up in arms about the name Grogu. It's no sillier than Yoda. Definitely less silly than Yaddle. This feels like a symptom of the "Star Wars should always be cool and never strange/silly" mindset

    Porkins
    Watto
    Chewbacca(yeah I said it)

    Are among many much worse names than Gorgu, which does sound like star wars type alien name

    Great episode! Loved finally getting to see live-action Ahsoka! My onlu real gripe with her was her lekku should've definitely been longer, IMO. But overall, was great seeing her, I think Rosario Dawson did a great job and the episode was fantastic! Glad to finally get Grogu's name revealed. And the mention of Thrawn was interesting as well... Ever since we knew Ahsoka was probably going to be in this season, I have been excited but was worried it would basically just be a cameo. Although, I unfortunately don't expect her to be in any more episodes, at least not this season... at least we did get her as a star of the episode she was in and not just a brief cameo. Hopefully she will be in more or at least in her own TV-series, which is probably more likely.

    to be fair this is the first time we have had a beloved character with no “known” name other than the cute Babyoda moniker , given to him by the fandom , for 1.5 seasons.....then the jarring Grogu name . It would be like knowing Chewbacca as “fuzzball” for 1.5 movies then having him called Chewbacca .....

    Big KOTOR fan excited about Tython. Very curious to see where Grogu's story goes from here. They left it very open. Bring back Mace!. For real though I think a Jedi cast away or expatriate perhaps a new character will become Grogu's master eventually.....

    What exactly is so jarring about it? I ain't saying it's all that great of a name but jarring are posts about the name being bad. It's just alright

    Between a Krayt Dragon with white pearls within and Typhon, I really want an Old Republic film or show than even before!

    I am very curious here, a lot of directions they could go. Having watched rebels, Vader appeared but never took over the series. This tells me Luke will be heard from, even if not seen directly. We know Luke did not start training until years after this. We also know if grogu winds up at Luke’s school he gets killed. I’ve also watched enough filoni to know he will find a way out Of this box, one thing I find interesting is they have in essence an ancient mandalorian, following ancient ways, taking a very long lived Jedi trainee to an ancient Jedi temple. Perhaps mando finds a holocron or something to train baby today in ancient Jedi ways? A proverbial battle between old and new is happening here. We know Luke comes to believe the Jedi lost their way. Does his discovery of ancient Jedi ways convince him of this? So think Luke will make at least an indirect appearance

    If they bring in Luke at all, do they de-age Mark Hamill, deep fake an actor with ROTJ Luke's face or cast somebody like Sebastian Stan?

    I don't think it's going to be Luke. We've had Clone Wars/Rebels characters pop up in S2 (Boba included). Let's put it this way: I'd be surprised if it wasn't Ezra, but a new Jedi. She basically says "there not many left."

    This is the article you're looking for https://www.ign.com/articles/mandalorian-thrawn-ezra-sabine-ahsoka-star-wars-rebels

    I believe we are heading towards a post-credits scene at the end of episode 8 revealing Ezra Bridger. All of the Star Wars Rebels seeds that we have seen planted in season two are heading towards a Rebels connection.

    I don't know if this was inspiration or intentional, but I thought Ashoka's intro fight looked familiar.

    In all likelihood they create another Jedi/Padawan similar to Kanan who travels with mando after season two, or Luke gives mando something to help train him. One of the training droids Luke used in a new hope. In a dream world there is something at the Jedi temple which documents how tar vizla was trained. Mando could follow that. If baby today stays with mando a few years his fear will decrease.

    So how many times will Din refer to him as “Grogu” for the rest of the season? My over/under is 3

    He's going to find "kid" a hard habit to break a la Han Solo, but dank ferrik, it's so cute the way Grogu's ears prick up every time Din says his name, he'll find it hard to resist...

    From Reddit. Thrawn's 7th Fleet insignia is on the HK-87 Droids.
