Filoni also has a great point that this is not a question that only applies to the one they call Baby Yoda. Where was Ahsoka Tano during the “Star Wars” sequel trilogy, for example? What about Din Djarin, aka Mando? If he lived, where was he during all of that? Filoni went on to elaborate, explaining that, as is so often the case with “Star Wars,” it’s all about points of view and interpretation.

“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.”

Who knows? As this corner of the universe rolls on, we may very well get an explanation as to what these characters were up to during the events of Episodes VIII, VIII, and IX of the Skywalker saga – or maybe we won’t. Though it still could be satisfying depending on where the story goes, and that’s what’s most important.
