A Baby Yoda Theory Teases a Sad End for Grogu that Could Break Star Wars

Baby Yoda does not appear in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, which could mean he serves a different purpose in the larger story than originally thought.

Grogu (commonly referred to as Baby Yoda) took everyone by surprise when he first appeared in The Mandalorian. The mystery surrounding his purpose and origins has continued to captivate Star Wars fans throughout the show’s two seasons. The more viewers learn about the character, the more they wonder how he fits into the larger story the show – and Star Wars as a whole – is telling. A long-standing fan theory originating from Reddit suggests that Grogu (“The Child”) is part of a centuries-old cycle in which a child grows up to save the Chosen One from falling down a dark path.

With this savior cycle theory in mind, it’s even possible to put Ahsoka Tano in the role of training Grogu to eventually guide a new Chosen One later on in the Star Wars timeline because of her appearance in the second season of The Mandalorian. This would further suggest that Grogu could have been the one to train Rey in The Last Jedi or The Rise of Skywalker, rescuing her from the temptation of darkness so that she could save the universe.

If this idea were true, however, then where was Grogu during the sequel trilogy? One could argue that the sequels were written and finalized before The Mandalorian, and therefore Grogu was possibly only an idea in Jon Favreau’s head. It could also mean, however, that at some point between The Mandalorian and The Force Awakens, Grogu dies, and the cycle he may have been destined to continue was shattered.

Even considering the possibility that Baby Yoda could die may be a challenging endeavor. What if, however, his death turned out to be the result of the very thing he may have been destined for in the first place – saving the life of someone who may have otherwise turned to evil by sacrificing himself so that they could carry on?

Several characters could fit this role, such as Din Djarin, who some have speculated might be Force-sensitive. Considering where Grogu ends up at the end of Season 2, however, and what we know about a certain Jedi Master’s path leading up to The Force Awakens, it’s possible that at some point before the trilogy begins, Grogu sacrifices himself to save Luke Skywalker, who later goes on to save the entire galaxy from ruin … again.

All this time, fans have been looking at Ben Solo/Kylo Ren when flashing back to the moment the Jedi Temple burns down, which is said to be the true catalyst that leads to Ben’s full commitment to the dark side. Luke somehow ends up emerging from the wreckage. Was Grogu the one to save him, setting off an entirely new chain of events in which Luke goes on to save Rey, who goes on to liberate the galaxy from Palpatine once and for all this time?

It wouldn’t be the first time a Star Wars character with great potential to make the galaxy a better place gave their life so that a Chosen One could save the universe. Obi-Wan Kenobi died so that Luke could escape the Death Star and later destroy it. Darth Vader’s final act was to defeat Palpatine so that Luke could survive.

Grogu’s sacrifice in this regard may have finally broken the cycle Star Wars has repeated for decades. He died so Luke could make one final sacrifice, which then allowed Ben Solo to do the same. With that final sacrifice and Palpatine gone for good, Star Wars’ affinity for killing off key characters so main protagonists could survive may have finally been put to rest.
