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”

My Pre-Prequels Head Canon

Watching the Original Trilogy in the early 90’s, there was very little information on what happened before. All we really knew was what Obi-Wan told Luke.
