An old Star Wars The comic may offer some clues about Grogu’s past. Better known as Baby Yoda, the character debuted in The mandalorian and has since become a true fan favorite within the franchise. But much remains mysterious about the beloved little alien. Where, exactly, did it come from? What is the name of your species? Many answers will surely come, but the comic in question may offer at least some clue as to what happened to the Boy before he and Mando crossed paths.
The problem in question is Star Wars tales # 13, which was written by Fabian Nicieza, Jim Krueger, and W. Haden Blackman. The series was published by Dark Horse Comics around the time the prequels were released. They are no longer canon as Disney chose to ditch everything and start from scratch after buying Lucasfilm in 2012. But these tales, now called Legends, have often been used to inspire official canon. So they can be a useful guide.
Star Wars tales # 13 focuses on Mace Windu. It has a collection of short stories involving the Jedi. The final story of the book is titled Sons of the Force. This is of particular interest to those who are curious about the mysterious origins of Grogu. He sees Mace taking his Padawan, Depa Billaba, to a Jedi nursery. Depa is in conflict with the fact that these children were taken from their homes to be trained in the ways of the Force. A bounty hunter by the name of Vianna D’Pow enters the fold, trying to steal these babies from the nursery. It turns out that the parents of the children in the nursery hired her. These parents regretted that they allowed the Jedi to take their children.
Amid the chaos as Mace confronts Vianna, we see a shot of the Jedi nursery. In the lower right corner of the panel, we can see a familiar looking green alien baby in a crib. In fact, it is a baby of the same species as Yoda. While this is not Baby Grogu, as the character did not exist when the comic was written. But it could be a window into where the Baby Yoda we’ve come to know The mandalorian He came from. Perhaps the Jedi Order took him in as a child and placed him in one of these nurseries. We know that Grogu is 50 years old in the show’s timeline, as Yoda’s species ages differently than many others. So the timeline could easily work.
With The mandalorian Season 3 will go into production later this year, not to mention all the other Star Wars shows in the works for Disney +, we’re sure we’ll learn a lot more about Grogu in the future. Especially given everything that happened in the season 2 finale. It seems inevitable that the character’s past will be explored. Will executive producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni decide to take inspiration from this particular story? Time will tell. This was previously reported by Reverse.
