In episode 6 of The Book of Boba Fett, we saw Luke Skywalker ask Grogu to choose between being a Jedi and a Mandalorian. But before Grogu could answer, the scene was cut.
Many have theorized that he might choose to be a Jedi, but we think that he may choose the beskar armor and be a Mandalorian. Here’s why we think so:
Din Djarin was the one who took Grogu in and cared for him after saving him from his captors. Baby Yoda is already a foundling, and if he chooses to be a Mandalorian, he will be trained as a Mandalorian warrior.
Even in episode 6, the Armorer called him a foundling before making him a little set of Beskar armor. This could mean that he is already a Mandalorian and now has to be trained.
If Moff Gideon hadn’t used baby Yoda as leverage in the finale of The Mandalorian, Din wouldn’t have discovered and reclaimed the Darksaber.
It’s only through being reunited with Grogu and continuing his mission to get him to the Jedi that he came across the Darksaber. In the Star Wars franchise; attachments, bonds, and destiny play a big role.
In this instance, all three of them worked together to shed light on the little creature’s future.
Based on what we have seen in The Mandalorian, the little thing has used his powers to help the Mandalorians more than reaching out to any Jedi. If he hadn’t formed a relationship with Din, he wouldn’t have ever found his way to Luke.
Grogu even saved Din from being killed by the Mudhorn and Force-choked the Stormtroopers. He even tried to stand up to Moff Gideon. If he hadn’t gotten winded up easily, he might have found his own way back to his savior.
This point is based on what we have seen in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. We don’t know what Grogu was up to after surviving Order 66 and before getting adopted by Din.
But it’s reasonable to assume that he has been away from the Jedi for a long time. Even if he spent his infancy at the Jedi Temple, it really wouldn’t be illogical to say that he would most likely remember his time with Din more easily than his early Jedi training. But we won’t know more until Luke jogs his memories again.
Jedi aren’t allowed to get emotionally attached. But this doesn’t mean that they won’t. When Grogu first met Ahsoka Tano, it was already said that he had formed a strong bond with the Mandalorian, and that is affecting his abilities.
This could mean that Grogu has already chosen. One thing that we know for sure is that Din and Grogu have a strong bond. This means that Grogu might choose Din and the Mandalorians over the Jedi.
We will know about Grogu’s final decision in the finale of The Book of Boba Fett on February 9th, Wednesday on Disney+.
