[Warning: This story contains The Mandalorian spoilers for “Chapter 20: The Foundling.”] in The MandalorianSeason 2 episode “Chapter 13: Jedi,” Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) communicates with the Kid through the Force to learn that a bastard named Grogu escaped Order 66. “Many Masters have trained him over the years. At the end of the Clone Wars, when I stepped up Empire to power, he was hidden,” Anakin Skywalker’s former Padawan tells Grogu’s ward, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), revealing that “someone” rescued Grogu from the Jedi Temple on Coruscant the night the Great Emperor ordered the Jedi Purge. But it wasn’t even The Mandalorian Season 3 Episode “Chapter 20: The Foundling” Viewers learned the identity of Grogu’s savior.
After “Jedi” aired in 2020, star Wars Fans theorized that Grogu was rescued from the Jedi Temple. Was it Jedi Master Yoda (Frank Oz), who is of the same species as Grogu and also escaped from Order 66? Perhaps the Jedi Archives’ librarian and fellow Purge survivor was Jocasta Nu (Alethea McGrath). Others have speculated that it may have been slain Jedi Master Mess Windu (Samuel L. Jackson): according to a popular fan theory, Windu escaped his apparent death at the hands of Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith And save Grogu before he goes into hiding.
The Mandalorian Mace Windu theory debunked
The Foundling debunked Windu’s theory with the revelation that Grogu’s savior was Jedi Kelleran Beq (played by former Jar Jar Binks actor Ahmed Best, reprising his live-action role from Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge). The Jedi Knights protected the Child when the Emperor’s brainwashed clone troopers stormed the temple—slaughtering youngsters and Jedi alike—until Beq, having piloted a speeder on a chase across Coruscant, teleports Grogu off the planet by leaping into hyperspace .
Is Mace Windu alive?
Jackson believes Windu is still alive, arguing that a Jedi as powerful as Mace Windu could have survived being electrocuted and stopped. The actor who starred in all three star Wars prequels, Windu Death Challenge as written by George Lucas in Revenge of the Sith: “As blue rays engulf his body, he is flung out a window and falls twenty stories to his death. No more screaming. No more moaning.”
“Of course it is [alive]! A Jedi can fall from amazing distances.” Entertainment Weekly in 2016. “And there’s a long history of Jedi wielding one-handed weapons. So why not?” In the event that Windu returns with one hand to wield a purple lightsaber again, Jackson revealed that he would have the blessing of Lucas, who sold Lucasfilm to Disney in 2012.
George has nothing to do with it [Star Wars] no more,” Jackson said at the time. George said, “I’m fine with that. You can be alive.”
