Where Was Grogu During The ‘Star Wars’ Sequel Trilogy? Dave Filoni Answers
One of the biggest questions facing many Star Wars fans is…where were the characters from The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett during the sequel trilogy?
Fans have hypothesized about the whereabouts of the Mandalorian, Boba Fett, and especially Grogu and Ahsoka Tano while Rey and The Resistance were fighting the First Order, and eventually a resurrected Palpatine.
Where Was Grogu During The Sequels?
Star Wars producer Dave Filoni, who co-created The Clone Wars and is a producer and director of The Mandalorian, was specifically asked about Grogu’s whereabouts during the sequel trilogy.
Because much of the film revolved around Rey’s strong connection to the force and her role as “The Last Jedi,” many have wondered why Rey didn’t at least sense Grogu.
When asked this question, Filoni reminded Star Wars fans of the vastness of the universe.
“That’s a great question, and we talk about many different things,” he told the trade. “That’s a question for a bunch of characters, by the way, not just Grogu. Where are they during these events?
“If anything, having made The Clone Wars and weaving a tale so intricately between two movies that were much closer together, I’ve learned that there’s expansive room in this galaxy for us to tell stories and have characters doing things.”
Because of the largely linear storytelling that defined Star Wars, fans often forget how vast the universe is.
The Story Has To Evolve and Make Sense
In true Dave Filoni fashion, the Star Wars historian also brought the topic back to the original trilogy.
“As a kid, when Yoda said, ‘When gone am I, the last of the Jedi will you be,’ to Luke, I took that very literally,” Filoni explained. “Well, now we know that’s anything but true. There are many different people that could wield the Force, and maybe Luke is the last Jedi as far as what Yoda would consider a Jedi.
“So we’ll just have to wait and see how the story evolves and what makes sense. But in my experience, there’s definitely a way to weave everything together and make it exciting. It’s possible it would never even have to cross over with what we saw [in the sequel trilogy] if the story has us somewhere else.”
Separate Corners of the Universe
Whether or not Jon Favaru and Dave Filoni decide to weave their characters into the stories of the feature films, Filoni has reinforced an obvious point.
The Star Wars universe is big enough that Grogu, the Mandalorian, and Ahsoka could have easily been alive and kicking while the events of the sequel were taking place. In the end, we will have to wait and see.
