Mandalorian idea can present why Moff Gideon desires the kid
The Mandalorian Fan theory could shed some light on why Moff Gideon wants the child, aka Baby Yoda, so badly. Giancarlo Esposito’s vicious Moff Gideon character is one of the great secrets surrounding the successful Disney + series. Thankfully, Season 2 will give Star Wars fans more of the character, according to Esposito, along with some battles with Mando. But will Mandalorian Season 2 reveal exactly why he was on the hunt for the child and what he plans to do with him?
According to the fan theory of the second season of The Mandalorian, Moff Gideon intends to get his hands on the kid so he can “inject” himself with midi-chlorians who would then give him powers. In the first season, Dr. Pershing suggests that they extract “the necessary material” from the child and insists that they stay alive. From there, the fan theory goes on to say that they would clone the child and start harvesting midi-chlorians. At this point the theory ventures into rebel territory.
In the Mandalorian season 1, Moff Gideon can be seen with the Darksaber, a “unique lightsaber with a black blade that would become the symbol of leadership within the House of Vizsla”. Tarre Vizsla is the first Mandalorian to be inducted into the Jedi Order. He created the Darksaber and became the leader of Mandalore. He was also sensitive to force. The character was featured in Rebels season 3 and many believe the story of Darksaber is depicted in The Mandalorian season 2. Is Moff Gideon trying to gain powers to be like Tarre Vizsla? Are the two related?
In a recent interview, Giancarlo Esposito spoke about the worldwide love for Baby Yoda. “Look, you know, being on set with that baby … All of us as actors, Werner [Herzog] and me, Pedro [Pascal]I have all said different things about this very, very irresistible Yoda. I knew the first time I saw him that he would be the star of the show, “he said. When the interviewer jokingly warned him not to harm Baby Yoda, Esposito said,” I just want to spend all of my time with him . As close as I can, I’ll come. And believe me, I’m good at getting closer. “Whether this is a joke or not is unclear at the moment.
The Season 2 Mandalorian theory is interesting, although it has not been officially confirmed. Star Wars fans still have no idea who Moff Gideon really is or why he wants the kid so badly. As for the Darksaber, this is an entirely different puzzle that fans have been trying to solve since the end of season one. Fortunately, we don’t have to wait too long to see what Moff Gideon is really up to. The Mandalorian Season 2 is set for the premiere of Episode 1 tomorrow or very late tonight if you’re a hardcore Star Wars fan. The fan theory comes from Reddit.
