Luke Skywalker and Grogu: Master and Apprentice

Since last December, Star Wars fans have been asking the same question, “What happens to Grogu now he’s with Luke?”, which often is followed up with “Did Kylo kill Grogu when he destroyed the Jedi Temple?” Both are fair questions (the second however is flawed as ‘The Rise of Kylo Ren’ comic series revealed thatContinue reading “Luke Skywalker and Grogu: Master and Apprentice”

Speculation: The Mandalorian Season 2 and The Child

In the words of ‘Blue Harvest Podcast’, I’ve been doing some cockadoody speculating about season 2 of ‘The Mandalorian’, the reason for Moff Gideon’s obsession with The Child and perhaps even Ahsoka.
