The Mandalorian's next season has a slew of people talking about it, and to our surprise, not all of them are positive. Some people think that reuniting Mando and Grogu — the galaxy's favorite father-son duo — was an Imperial mistake, and we don't entirely disagree. Now, before you slap a bounty on our heads, please listen to our observations.
It's true that The Mandalorian wouldn't be the same if this pair was permanently split up, but reuniting the two so soon might be a mishandled narrative choice that might result in a larger payoff later on. Yet, show creator Jon Favreau seems to think that the choices made to reunite the two make perfect sense.
Jon Favreau, who is probably responsible for kicking off the MCU and the filmmaker of Elf, and what sort of Scrooge doesn't like Elf? Favreau discusses why the show's creators made the choices they made — and, more importantly, why it all sums up.
Jon Favreau has a point. The Mandalorian is about Mando and Grogu. If either of them isn't around, the show would be canceled. Rather, it's just a simple concept: if Mando and Grogu aren't together, we'll never get a story.
Although the circumstances surrounding their reintroduction could have been handled differently, the fact that they were brought back together in the first place was a forgone conclusion. In our humble opinion, watching Din Djarin (the Mandalorian himself) trudge around the cosmos without his little green pal would make no sense.
Certains may be depressed by this fact, but in Darth Vader's immortal words — probe your thoughts, you'll realize it's true.
