I just finished catching up with this series and since I had heard that there were spinoffs in development, I looked up upcoming Star Wars stuff. It's definitely an interesting list

I can't wait till Disney puts out a series of animated shorts about Baby Yoda getting into all sorts of hijinks.

I saw a fan theory and was actually wondering if they were going to go with this. Given how many reboots and redos and re-whatevers that have been going on lately, I don't think it would be too far out of the realm of possibility.

Spoilers?I guess?
Spoiler.
If Grogu is so damn powerful, and also the same species as Yoda, you would think he should be at least references in the sequels. Obviously, he's not. But it's difficult to imagine him NOT having any major impact in the main story of Star Wars. I feel like it would be in bad faith if Grogu is eventually written off as having been killed by Kylo Ren later on or something when Luke's temple falls.

Therefore, someone brought up the idea of The Mandalorian creating a separate continuity and "sequel series" from the sequel trilogy. Do you think it's possible that Favreau would kind of do his own thing and create a new sequel continuity?

I discussed this with my friends, and there seems to be back and forth. Someone mentioned how doing that would "spit in the face" of everyone who worked on the sequel trilogy. I don't think so. Arguing about "what's canon and not canon" seems moot these days. Just watch what you like. Also, I would argue that Disney would obviously go the route that gives them more money, and Grogu definitely would give them more money. If that leads to a separate continuity, so be it.

No.

There's some weird conspiracy theory going on in some places on the internet that the Mandalorian is leading into some sort of reboot sequel trilogy even though the people making it have said already that the Mandalorian and all of its related shows are going to be connecting the sequels to the originals, just like Clone Wars connects the prequels together and Rebels connects the prequels to the sequels.

And it really is more of a conspiracy theory than a fan theory - there are people being very adamant about it happening, saying it at literally any chance and just being very annoying about it.

Major characters that aren't mentioned in the movies mean nothing. Ahsoka isn't mentioned in the original trilogy, even though she's still alive at that time. And Grogu, as far as we're currently aware, isn't even a major character on the galactic scale. He's just one of Luke's several apprentices and the only one to be mentioned in the movies was Ben Solo. Other students being introduced just means we have more details about the other students, not that there's a separate continuity.

Typically I find that when my boss is upset with me, the wisest course of action is to stop doing the thing that's making my boss upset with me.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Typically I find that when a service acts in opposition to free speech, the wisest course of action is to cancel that service.

Well, clearly. However, when there are different company standards based what an individual's political leanings are, and disciplinary action is selectively applied, that's...well, it's unfair. Is it legal, sure... and you can even take the nihilistic view and say "oh well, life isn't fair", but I personally would want to push an agenda of fairness and equality.

More concerning to me though is the ever-growing list of examples of businesses cow-towing to the whims of and demands of an angry Twitter mob. In totality they represent a tiny proportion of fans- the fringe with a giant megaphone. The overwhelming majority of those who watch Star Wars aren't going to stop watching because they don't like that Gina tweeted about not hating your neighbors.
