What began off as a Space Western in Season 1 of The Mandalorian has become a quest to return Baby Yoda to the Jedi in Season 2. The most up-to-date episode did present Din Djarin are available contact with a former Jedi, but it surely didn’t fairly fulfill his mission but.
So, shifting ahead, Mando is hoping to lure extra Jedi to Grogu on the planet of Tython, probably to proceed his coaching. If that occurs, which Jedi may come to his support? Here are just a few choices of identified Jedi in Star Wars canon that might present up by the top of Season 2.

The massive cameo in The Mandalorian’s fifth episode was Ahsoka Tano. She’s been a serious character within the animated sequence Star Wars: The Clone Wars since 2008, after which went on to look in Star Wars Rebels, carving out a serious spot for herself within the Star Wars franchise total.
This is the primary live-action look of Ahsoka, portrayed by Rosario Dawson, when she’s often voiced by Ashley Eckstein in previous appearances. But despite the fact that she carries lightsabers and wields the Force, she is not any Jedi. Mando, after all, doesn’t know this, and so he’s greatly surprised when she refuses to coach Grogu.
Of course, audiences know that is due to Baby Yoda’s intense attachment to Din. And despite the fact that he doesn’t need to admit it, Din Djarin has a deep reference to the kid as nicely. Ahsoka sees this and is straight away swayed away from coaching Grogu due to her former grasp Anakin’s story.
She confronted off in opposition to Darth Vader not too lengthy earlier than assembly with Mando, and simply got here out of her denial that her grasp turned to the Dark aspect. She’s reliving her trauma from the Clone Wars and the Jedi Purge with Grogu’s return. This simply provides to her reminder of Anakin’s flip, as nicely. It’s loads to absorb, and a sound cause to not prepare Grogu within the methods of the Force.
So, if somebody does take up coaching Grogu, and if he chooses to show towards the Jedi, who will or not it’s? There are just a few Jedi we all know exist right now.
The largest identify drop that followers weren’t anticipating on this episode was Grand Admiral Thrawn’s. Before this episode, many followers thought this got here after the Star Wars Rebels Epilogue. Meaning that Ahsoka is on the lookout for Thrawn and that Ezra remains to be lacking in hyperspace with him.
Dave Filoni then hinted in an interview with Vanity Fair that this episode truly may come earlier than that Epilogue. If that’s the case, then who is aware of the place Ezra Bridger is. Could he present up if Grogu known as out to him on Tython? If that’s the case, then he clearly doesn’t attain out to Ahsoka and Sabine by the point of the Epilogue, however who is aware of what occurs within the meantime.
In all the hullabaloo of The Mandalorian with Krayt Dragons, beskar, and Baby Yoda, it’s typically exhausting to do not forget that Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia Organa, and Chewbacca are simply galavanting across the Galaxy proper now. This takes place 5 years after Return of the Jedi, so that they’d look considerably much like how they do in that film, with Luke being round 30.
This is one thing followers have considered, too, even fancasting actors like Sebastian Stan within the position. According to Star Wars lore, Luke got down to restore the Jedi Order just about straight away. So it will make sense that he’d come straight to help one other Force person calling out for assist.
Again, Leia can be alive right now, after all. She’s a bit extra preoccupied with restoring the New Republic, although. As seen in The Rise of Skywalker, Leia did begin coaching as Jedi. While she began far later within the sport than Padawans often did, she and Luke had been clearly particular circumstances.
However, after seeing and feeling that her efforts had been higher suited elsewhere, she stopped. She additionally sensed that she’d kill her unborn baby in a while of their life if she continued. She adopted very a lot in her adopted father’s and organic mom’s footsteps by returning to politics.
However, what if she heard Grogu reaching out by way of the Force? What if Rey wasn’t the primary Jedi she educated? It can be tough with casting, with out resorting to CGI, however who is aware of? It might be a really stunning cameo if executed accurately.
Lastly, a shock and late contender to the combination right here is Cal Kestis. He was launched within the 2019 videogame Jedi: Fallen Order which informed the story of Cal, a Padawan who escaped Order 66 and went into hiding. The sport then picked up his story 5 years after Revenge of the Sith and the Jedi Purge. The Empire’s Inquisitors discover him, discover he’s a Jedi, and attempt to kill him. He’s saved by Cere Junda, a former Jedi Master, and so they go on a mission to discover a Holocron that holds the names of Force-sensitive youngsters.
In the time of The Mandalorian, Cal Kestis can be round 40, so growing old up Cameron Monaghan (from Shameless and who originated the position for the sport) wouldn’t be exhausting. And it will be a very cool tie-in. Considering the recognition of Jedi: Fallen Order, this may be quite fascinating for followers. However, it won’t be that advantageous if there aren’t larger plans for Cal’s character within the bigger Star Wars universe. But, if there are, this may be good.
Now, these are solely present Star Wars canon Jedi that followers know of. There are so many Force wielders that might present up, good or dangerous. So who is aware of what’s in retailer within the final three episodes of The Mandalorian Season 2.
