Did Baby Yoda choose to train with Luke Skywalker or be with the Mandalorian?
The end of The Book of Boba Fett‘s sixth episode left fans hanging.
Who will Baby Yoda choose?
Many of us are excited to see what he will decide.
However, it seems the answer has already been out there.
You just have to know about the history of Star Wars.
In the episode, we see that Luke Skywalker is already making his first steps into making the Jedi Academy a reality.
In fact, the structure’s look is almost identical to the one in the last Star Wars trilogy.
Specifically, the one in Luke Skywalker’s flashback sequence in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Nevertheless, it’s not mentioned if it’s the same structure.
We don’t really know what planet the Jedi Academy was located.
For example, some may say that it’s Yavin 4.
That is the location of the Jedi Academy in .
But since Legends is non-canon, we can only hope the showrunners acknowledge it.
The episode presents Luke Skywalker teaching Baby Yoda.
A lot of scenes mirror Yoda training Luke Skywalker on Dagobah.
Will Baby Yoda Choose Luke Skywalker Or The Mandalorian?
In other words, it seems that Luke Skywalker is setting Baby Yoda as his Padawan.
By the end of the episode, Luke Skywalker presents Baby Yoda two items.
There’s Beskar armor, a gift from his guardian the Mandalorian.
The other is Yoda’s own lightsaber.
He has to decide which to choose.
If he chooses the lightsaber, he continues his Jedi training.
If he chooses the Beskar armor, then he stops his training.
Thus, he can return to the Mandalorian.
What does he select?
The Star Wars timeline already drops a major hint.
The Book of Boba Fett happens nine years after the Battle of Yavin (ABY).
Ben Solo started his training when he was 10 years old at around 15 ABY.
Luke Skywalker considers his nephew Solo as his first apprentice, not including his sister Princess Leia.
So, where is Baby Yoda in this scenario?
If Luke Skywalker considers Solo as his first, it means that Baby Yoda didn’t pursue his training.
Moreover, there’s an additional clue.
In the episode, the Mandalorian got his new highly modified Naboo starfighter.
There should have been a place for an astromech droid, but it was removed.
It seems that it’s a perfect fit for someone like Baby Yoda.
Wouldn’t that be a waste of space if the Mandalorian didn’t have Baby Yoda with him?
Right now, this only means that Baby Yoda may not be pursuing being a Jedi apprentice at this time.
Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean that he won’t come back to it later.
The Force is strong with Baby Yoda.
We will see where it will take him.
