“It’s clear something went wrong”: The Mandalorian Season 3 Gets Intense Fan Hatred for Destroying Grogu’s Chance to Become a Jedi

"It's clear something went wrong": The Mandalorian Season 3 Gets Intense Fan Hatred for Destroying Grogu's Chance to Become a Jedi

Despite being one of the most popular Star Wars projects ever, The Mandalorian Season 3 couldn’t impress many fans of the franchise. Considering the popularity of the past two seasons of the Pedro Pascal series, the latest season fails to mimic the success of its predecessors. One of the major criticisms faced by the latest season of the Disney+ series is that it ruins the ending of the much-appreciated second season.

The last episode of the third season of The Mandalorian premiered less than a month ago on Disney+. After its ending, the fans brought up some major flaws that described why season three couldn’t reach the heights of the past seasons. One of the most dominating points among the flaws is the ruining of Grogu’s character arc.

Did The Mandalorian Season 3 ruin Grogu’s character?


Grogu or ‘Baby Yoda'(As popularly known to the netizens) is one of the major reasons behind The Mandalorian’s widespread popularity. His dynamics with Pedro Pascal‘s Din Djarin is one of the primary highlights of the first two seasons until the Season 2 ending separated the two fan-favorite characters. As heartbreaking as it was for the fans to watch the duo set on different paths without each other, it was also an amazing conclusion to end the saga of Din Djarin and Grogu.

But looks like the makers had something else in their minds which certainly didn’t act well. The third season of The Mandalorian along with the help of The Book of Bobba Fett ruined the season 2 ending by bringing back the “Child” too soon. The second season of the Din Djarin series showed the ‘father-son’-esque duo searching for Grogu’s people. In the end, we got to watch an emotional moment when Grogu was taken away by Luke Skywalker for Jedi training. Although the fans were not completely unwilling to a reunion, the rushed comeback of the character in the Bobba Fett series ruined the adventures and the events of the first two seasons.

The fans criticized that the third show further ruined the chances for Grogu to become a Jedi and nullifies the beautifully emotional Season 2 conclusion. According to them, the character should have been allowed to spend some more time without each other which could have helped in both of their story arcs. The fans have also taken to Twitter to express their views against the decision taken by the makers in the third season.

The Mandalorian season 3 attracts heavy criticism

The whole Din Djarin-Grogu comeback mess was created by The Book of Bobba Fett series which itself was a very underwhelming series in the intergalactic franchise. But the premiere of The Mandalorian season 3 was also bashed for ruining the beautiful moment from the last season. On the other hand, some fans even blamed the makers for incorporating the major plot point of Grogu’s comeback in a different series.

Let’s take a look at some of the reactions:

Undoubtedly, a large chunk of the fandom shares a common belief that Grogu’s character arc didn’t receive justified treatment. Besides it, the third season also suffered many other weaknesses such as a rushed storyline, and the primary focus being shifted from Din Djarin and Grogu to Bo-Katan. Some critics also complained that the show focused on connecting to other lores of the galaxy far far away which was not a total success.
