The Mandalorian: 10 Most Insane Fan Theories
Family relations, secret clones and more in these wild Mandalorian fan theories!
Jon Faverau's The Mandalorian is currently in the midst of its third season, and it continues to be a majorly popular and well-received part of the Star Wars franchise. The tale of Din Djarin and the ever-beloved (and marketable) Grogu has been carrying the franchise on its back since its inception. Still, while the story seems pretty straightforward, plenty of fans have their own ideas of what's really going on under the surface.
The galaxy far, far away is a dense and complicated universe full of lore, details and titbits that help to make it one of the most multi-faceted properties in popular culture. Thanks to this, it is a hotbed for fan theories. Whether it is the dreaded Jar Jar Binks theorised as a secret Sith Lord or Mace Windu's position as the real Chosen One, there's no end to the insane amount of speculation on what's presented in the sci-fi epic.
The Mandalorian is no different, as there is a boatload of utterly wild theories that hint at secret identities, possible futures and plenty more for the beloved characters and world. The following ten are some of the most insane.
There will be some minor spoilers ahead.
10. Grogu Can Talk, But Doesn't Because Of Trauma
It's hard to think of any characters from Star Wars that have taken the world by storm quite like Grogu. He's been the heart and soul of the series from the moment his adorable eyes peaked at Mando in the first episode. But, one Reddit user has a twisted idea on why the little creature has yet to utter a word.
As claimed by u/tehmpus, the reason why Grogu doesn't speak is that he is traumatised by the events of Order 66. Seeing the atrocities, especially the ones performed by Anakin Skywalker to the younglings, was supposedly enough to render Grogu into a catatonic state where he could not speak out of fear, despite being able to.
This theory is supposedly justified by season 2, episode 5, where Ahsoka converses with Grogu via the Force and claims to hear his thoughts. According to this theory, the fact that she can understand what he's thinking implies that he has a grasp on speech and communication. However, this theoriser believes that the things he's witnessed have prevented him from being able to speak them aloud.
Now that's a theory that does not coincide with Grogu's cute presentation.
