Where Were Grogu Or Ahsoka During The Sequel Trilogy? Dave Filoni Hints At An Answer

Where were the likes of Grogu or Ahsoka during the sequel trilogy? Dave Filoni hints at an answer in a recent interview.

In a recent interview with THR, Star Wars executive producer, writer, and now director Dave Filoni finally hints at a question fans have pondered. Where were the likes of Grogu or Ahsoka during the sequel trilogy. Now in the real world that’s easy to answer for one of those. Grogu didn’t exist until just before the Rise of Skywalker. However Ahsoka was absolutely on the table, her voice was even heard during Rey’s lackluster ‘all of the Jedi’ bit. However there was clearly never any desire from Rian Johnson, nor J.J. Abrams to have Ahsoka be involved in the movies.

Given where the MandoVerse is going so far, we now have Grogu and likely Ezra Bridger to add into the mix of Force users. Strictly speaking, Ahsoka is not a Jedi and neither is Ezra. Grogu also chose to walk another path or he could have been with Luke. Therefore fans have speculated for some time that the MandoVerse will take us away from the usual parts of the Galaxy. In order that these characters can have their own adventures, yet remain separate from the absolute bobbins that was the sequel trilogy. Filoni seems to hint the fans might be correct in their speculation.

“That’s a great question, and we talk about many different things. That’s a question for a bunch of characters by the way, not just Grogu. Where are they during these events? If anything, having made The Clone Wars and weaving a tale so intricately between two movies that were much closer together, I’ve learned that there’s expansive room in this galaxy for us to tell stories and have characters doing things.”

“As a kid, when Yoda said, “When gone am I, the last of the Jedi will you be,” to Luke, I took that very literally. Well, now we know that’s anything but true. There are many different people that could wield the force, and maybe Luke is the last Jedi as far as what Yoda would consider a Jedi. So we’ll just have to wait and see how the story evolves and what makes sense. But in my experience, there’s definitely a way to weave everything together and make it exciting. It’s possible it would never even have to cross over with what we saw [in the sequel trilogy] if the story has us somewhere else.”

Like, somewhere very far away Dave?

Rumors of course have us heading to unknown regions of space. Maybe even another Galaxy to play out a new story involving Ahsoka, Ezra, Thrawn, and likely Mando and Grogu as well? Though until the story takes us where we are going, it’s all rumors and speculation for now.

What do you think Dave Filoni’s comments? Where were the likes of Grogu or Ahsoka during the sequel trilogy? Should Lucasfilm just try and stay away from the events of the ST and tell us an unencumbered story set elsewhere? As always, leave us your thoughts below.
