Are there any Jedi left to train Grogu in The Mandalorian?
Warning: Spoilers ahead for The Mandalorian Chapter 13.
The next step in the journey for Din and Grogu in The Mandalorian sees them going to a Jedi Temple on Tython. Ahsoka tells Din to take him there so the character formerly known as Baby Yoda can put his energy into the universe and see if there is a Jedi willing to come and train the Force-sensitive child.

Even though Order 66 saw the destruction of nearly all Jedi, there are still some Jedi that survived the purge. Although, the numbers are few and the Jedi are scattered.
One of two things will happen on Tython. Din and Grogu do exactly as Ahsoka says and even though Grogu puts himself out there, no one shows up. Din and Grogu go on as father and child and Mando realizes no one else is going to protect so he must do it.
The other thing that could happen is that a Jedi actually shows up. So, the big question is who can that be?
6 Jedi who could train Baby Yoda in The Mandalorian
Given the timing of when The Mandalorian takes place, it’s about five years after Return of the Jedi. The options are very limited, but there are options. Let’s take a look at what Jedi could possibly show up.
1. Ahsoka Tano
Ahsoka has a change of heart and comes back to train Grogu. She knows someone like him needs help, so she decides she is the one to do it. She knows what it’s like to need help and Ahsoka has always had a big heart, no matter how broken it is.
Though, this isn’t likely as she is on the hunt for Thrawn.
2. Luke Skywalker
The most popular Jedi in the galaxy right now is Luke Skywalker. It would be interesting to see if Luke was actually the Jedi who came to train Grogu or take him back to the Jedi Academy that he is creating.
At this point, Ben Solo is alive (about 4 years old), and all know that he is Force-sensitive. Does Luke take him in and begin his training? Perhaps Ben and Grogu are the beginnings of the new Jedi training facility.
Of all the possibilities, that is one that makes the most sense as Luke is in the beginning phase of his life where he’s more teacher than student.
3. Cal Kestis
Cal is a Jedi introduced to us in the video game Jedi: Fallen Order. His journey isn’t over and there is a sequel coming for the game. With Cal being potentially alive at this point, he becomes a possibility, albeit a distant one, to train Grogu.
4. Ezra Bridger
One of the biggest moments of The Mandalorian Chapter 13 was Ahsoka asking about Grand Admiral Thrawn. Thrawn and Ezra disappeared together at the end of Star Wars Rebels.
Where there is Thrawn, there should be Ezra. Perhaps Ezra isn’t the most logical choice here, but bringing up Thrawn, you can’t help but think about the young padawan.
The other known Jedi is Leia. However, Leia’s training never completed because, as we learned in The Rise of Skywalker, she chose not to pursue that life after becoming pregnant with Ben. It would be weird to see her train another Force-sensitive youngster that wasn’t her son. Ben needed her help. It would be pretty awful if she helped Grogu and not Ben.
6. Unknown Jedi
There is always the possibility that The Mandalorian introduces us to a new Jedi we never met. It would be easier to bring in a new character that doesn’t have any ties to the greater Skywalker Saga, but The Mandalorian loves its nostalgia too much.
What do you think will happen when Mando and Baby Yoda visit Tython? Let us know in the comments.
