Who are Grogu’s parents? If only Yoda had went on the Maury show…
Grogu, known to many as “the Child,” is a male Force-sensitive being of the same species as Jedi Grand Master Yoda and Jedi Master Yaddle. Grogu was born in the year 41 BBY and was apparently raised at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. (If that’s true how did he get out of there alive?… A story for another time.)
The alien Grogu — referred to as a Baby Yoda by fans and nonfans alike — is orphaned when the Mandalorian finds him. An imperial hired the Mandalorian bounty hunter named Din Djarin to retrieve Grogu, which the Mandalorian did. Din brought the Child to the imperials. Then, Din had a change of heart and chose not to leave Grogu with the imperials, rescuing him from the imperial facility.
Din, alongside Grogu, then traveled across the galaxy on various adventures and searched for the few remaining Jedi who may be able to train Grogu, encountering Ahsoka Tano along the way. Ahsoka could not train Grogu. And so finally, none other than Luke Skywalker himself boarded an imperial ship and faced many adversaries, saving the day, before securing the Child to finally begin his training. So, we know a lot about Grogu and his story during The Mandalorian. But what about his background and his parentage before Din found him?
Who are Baby Yoda’s parents?
The Mandalorian became the father figure to Grogu, protecting him along the way through various locales. One might argue that the show The Mandalorian is about a wandering father and his adopted son trying to make their way in the universe.
But who is Grogu’s biological father? Some speculate Master Yoda. If Yoda is the father, then is Yaddle the mother? Perhaps. Could both parents have hidden the news of the birth of a child, because of the strict no-attachment philosophy of the Jedi? If this is the case, did anyone know?
If that be the truth, it is ridiculous and unfair that the council locks Anakin out and tells him to let go of all attachments. For if Yoda was a father, then he at least could have shown some sympathy and helped Anakin to hide Padme and offspring.
Or maybe, it is from two other aliens of the same species of Yoda and Yaddle entirely. That is more logical, runs better as a theory and also doesn’t look as bad for the Jedi Council. Only time will tell, and maybe we will find out when more episodes of The Mandalorian arrive on Disney+.
Do you think Grogu is a descendant of Yoda and/or Yaddle? Let us know in the comments.
