    He’s bad and he’s blue. I think that’s all you need to know.

    Grogu sounds more like a monster's name in an old Ultraman cartoon. He needs a cuter name.

    Looks like I'm going to have to do homework watching Star Wars cartoons to get a better understanding of what's going on.

    Beskar is light saber-proof. Interesting.

    Andorians don't exist in the SW universe...

    The novel Star Wars: Thrawn is a must read for info on Thrawn.

    If you can make it past the first season, Rebels is actually a pretty good show and there was even a cameo for part of it in “Rogue One”.

    Though you should watch “Clone Wars” first as “Rebels” has a large number of call backs to “Clone Wars” that won’t make any sense without context. Ashoka probably being the biggest one.

    I don’t think Thrawn will show up in The Mandalorian though, so I don’t think either are required viewing for The Mandalorian. I’m not even sure Ashoka will show up again either. Dave Filoni wrote this episode and he was the director of Clone Wars and Executive Producer of Rebels, so the callback to Thrawn seems more like a reward to Clone Wars and Rebels viewers than a future plot point.

    Regarding Yaddle: In the current canon, she left the Jedi High Council shortly after the events of The Phantom Menace and took a less-active role in Jedi affairs. She apparently played no role in the Clone Wars and her fate in unknown.

    In the old Expanded Universe stories that are no longer considered canon (but elements of which have re-entered into canon with the newer stories -- such as Thrawn himself), Yaddle sacrificed herself while on a mission a few years after TPM, and she was the last major Jedi death prior to the start of the Clone Wars.


    Either way, Ahsoka didn't become Anakin's Padawan until about 10 years after TPM, and she would have been training as Youngling prior to that. It's entirely plausible that she would have never encountered Yaddle when she was a Youngling and Yaddle wasn't around after she became a Padawan.


    Ahsoka says to Mando, "I've only known one other being like this. A wise Jedi Master named Yoda." She may have known of Yaddle without ever having met her.

    I agree. This was more along the lines of call backs and nods to other series. Much like Picard had guest appearances from previous series.

    We aren’t going to see Thrawn this season. But they could set it up for a villain for a future season.

    Thrown is too big for the Mandalorian. He deserves a movie.

    I doubt they'll do a Thrawn movie, but I think there will definitely be a series where Ahsoka and Sabine search for Ezra and Thrawn. This was set up by the final scene of Rebels.

    The only questions on that are will it be animated, and does it take place before or after the events of The Mandalorian?

    They need movies. Thrawn makes a great movie.

    Two episodes in a row that felt like backdoor pilots to me. Not complaining, just found it very interesting.

    Yaddle was name dropped in the recent (and canon) Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order game.

    I guess movies are on hold until the virus is over. The Obi Wan series is next.

    Even once pandemic is over they’ll need to keep feeding Disney+ content. I think Star Wars lends itself to the format. Doubt I’d have enjoyed Mando as much as a movie. Maybe Solo would have done better in this format as well. The current quest can’t go on forever and I’d rather they go in a different direction eventually (Ashoka, Sabine, etc) than string the current story out.
