On Friday morning, “The Mandalorian” will debut its sixth episode of season 2, or episode 14 of the entire franchise.
Last week, we learned so much more about Baby Yoda — his real name, his back story and more — as well as saw an old fan favorite in Ahsoka Tano. We also know we’re headed to the planet Tython, which could have implications of the Mandalorian’s run-in with Jedi.
Here’s all you need to know about tonight’s new episode.
- Time: 1:01 a.m. MST (12:01 a.m. PST).
- Location: Disney+.
- Title: Unknown (rumors said it would be called “The Sorcerer” but those rumored titles were wrong about all other episodes, too)
- Run time: 32 minutes (the shortest run time of the second season so far)
What will the episode be about?
Last week, the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) and Grogu (Baby Yoda) met Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson), who told the pair to head to Tython, where Grogu could make a choice about his path forward. You can read more about the episode in my Deseret News review.
Tython is a planet that is known to have connections to the Force. It was introduced into the “Star Wars” universe before Disney bought the franchise, appearing in the “Star Wars: The Old Republic” video game with a Jedi Temple.
The planet has a history with the Force. Basically, ships arrived on Tython about 36,000 years before the Battle of Yavin 4, carrying passengers and an entire civilization. The civilization learned to the use the Force, calling themselves the Je’daii Order.
These Je’daii learned to balance the Force, using both light and dark aspects. Eventually, there was a civil war between those who embraced the dark and those who chose the light. People eventually left the planet to create the Jedi order.
