Warning: The following article contains spoilers for The Book of Boba Fett and the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian

If we get too bold with our hot takes, the House of Mouse will likely put a bounty on our heads – so let’s be direct. Nothing goes here (deep breath): Grogu and Mando should never have been reunited once they were. Explore your feelings, you know it’s true.

Doesn’t that feel better? The harsh reality is that these two are brought back together along the way Boba Fett’s bookthe emotional finale of the second season of The Madalorian was completely undone. One Reddit user seems to agree with us, and quite frankly – their in-depth posts on the subject are pretty airtight.

Believe what you want, but we’re not sure that the reunion of Grogu and Din Djarin (the Mandalorian) is really what the show needs, narratively speaking. Think about it; There Mando stood, helmetless, with tears in his eyes as Baby Grogu was led away by Luke Fricken’s Skywalker. He cried; we cried; everyone was crying.

It was the culmination of a two-year arc that led to Grogu being guided down the path of a Jedi and Mando having to navigate the galaxy as a changed man – no longer the cold, calculating bounty hunter he once was, but now a sensitive anti-hero on a mission to do good.

The Mandolorian got a chance to reset and, more importantly, find a new voice. The harsh reality is that the series can’t be the Grogu/Mando show forever. Sure, this duo is as iconic as it gets, but sending them the same adventures over and over again isn’t the kind of storytelling that fans of Star Wars need right now.

There’s just one small problem. Grogu is a cash cow. For Disney, this little green guy is the best thing since sliced ​​bread, and the amount of Baby Yoda merch the company can bring to market is truly amazing. The risk of this type of investment is definitely out of the question, and at least someone else out there thinks so too.

It’s on shirts, it’s on lunch boxes, it’s even been turned into a fancy night light. The point is, Grogu is everywhere, so it’s not going anywhere.

However, if you think about it, bring back Mando and Grogu for Season 3 The Mandalorian is not such a big deal. Was it the right choice? Maybe, maybe not. Still, that doesn’t change how excited we are for the show’s premiere on March 1st. Regardless of who is in the cockpit, we will be ready to return to that galaxy far, far away.
