How The Book Of Boba Fett Respected George Lucas’ Grogu Wish By Ignoring It

The Book of Boba Fett finally brought the titular bounty hunter back into Star Wars canon. The show focused on Temeura Morrison’s Boba Fett and followed him as he tried to take over the criminal empire of Jabba.

There were also flashbacks showing his past. During the flashbacks, we got to see how Boba escaped from the Sarlacc Pit, etc. In the present-day storyline, we see multiple Star Wars favorites return like Din Djarin, Grogu, Luke Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, etc.

On the show, we see Grogu making a tough decision. When Luke Skywalker gives him an ultimatum to choose between the beskar armor and Yoda’s lightsaber, the little guy chooses the former.

Back when the journey with Grogu began in The Mandalorian, Star Wars creator George Lucas had one concern regarding the little green character.

George Lucas Wanted Grogu To Have Training

As per The Art of The Mandalorian: Season 2, producer Dave Filoni says:

“I had a talk with George, at one point, about the Child, and his main concern was that the kid has to have a proper amount of training.”

And The Book of Boba Fett showcased it in an amazing it. In the show, we see Grogu get only one training episode before going with Din again.

But in the training episode, we do hear Luke saying that Grogu is “remembering” his previous training rather than him actively teaching him anything.

With this, Star Wars successfully laid rest to George Lucas’ concerns. After all, the creator wanted the little guy to have proper training, and Star Wars says that he already did.

The Book Of Boba Fett Smartly Fulfilled Lucas’ Wishes

Now, one training episode isn’t enough to show that Grogu can harness the Force properly. But Luke Skywalker’s words suggest that he had the skills all along; it’s just that they were dormant.

As such, Star Wars has addressed Lucas’ concerns without even showing Grogu going through any more training. And it all makes perfect sense since Grogu is 50 years old.

So he would have some training and experience. It’s the perfect way to avoid the training issue and have Grogu reunite with his found father again. Now, just because Grogu left Luke Skywalker, it doesn’t necessarily mean that his training is fully over.

Also, even though Luke Skywalker made Grogu choose between being a Jedi and a Mandalorian, he could indeed be both. After all, Tarre Vizsla, the creator of the Darksaber, was a Mandalorian Jedi.

So Grogu could indeed get more Jedi training in the future.
