'The Mandalorian' Reveals Baby Yoda's Real Name & Backstory In New Episodes; Here's What Twitter Thinks About It

The Mandalorian just revealed some major details about who Baby Yoda is and where he’s from.

Baby Yoda’s name was revealed by the one and only Rosario Dawson, who played Jedi Ahsoka Tano (from Clone Wars), as well as almost his entire backstory.

Ahsoka reads The Child’s mind and its revealed that his true name isn’t Baby Yoda, or The Child, but Grogu.

Apparently, Grogu was raised in a Jedi temple on the planet of Coruscant, and when the Empire came to power following the Clone Wars, Grogu became hidden.

“Someone took him from the temple,” the character relays to The Mandalorian before telling him that she will not train him to become a Jedi.

“I’ve seen what feelings do to a fully trained Jedi Knight,” Ahsoka says. “I will not start this child down this path; better to have his abilities fade.”

After Baby Yoda’s name was revealed many fans took to social media to share their thoughts on it.

Later in the episode, Ahsoka tells the Mandalorian that “there’s one possibility” of how Grogu can be a Jedi again – by taking him to Tython, where he’ll find the ruins of an ancient Jedi temple that has a strong connection to the force.

“Then Grogu may choose his path. If he reaches out through the force, there’s a chance a Jedi may sense his presence and come searching for him. Then again, there aren’t many Jedi left,” Ahsoka tells him.

We’ll see what happens in the next episode…
