New Mandalorian Theory Says Disney Plus Shows Will Wipe Sequel Trilogy From Canon

There’s a lot of Star Wars fans who still haven’t gotten over the markedly different yet equally polarizing The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, with Frank Oz of all people having to wade in after a fan demanded that Rian Johnson apologize for Episode VIII every single day for the rest of his life.

The Force Awakens got a pass because Star Wars was back, and while it didn’t break any new ground it was still an entertaining blockbuster that didn’t rock the boat. The Last Jedi made sweeping changes to the mythology, upsetting and alienating a lot of people in the process, only for The Rise of Skywalker to try far too hard to get them back onboard by doubling down on fan service and retcons at the expense of telling a serviceable story that could tie up the narrative in a fashion befitting a nine-movie saga that unfolded across four decades.

However, a wild new fan theory speculates that The Mandalorian could end up erasing the Sequel Trilogy from canon, something that a certain section of the fanbase wouldn’t be against, and it all hinges on Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni continuing to embrace the animated shows as official continuity.

Rey hearing the voice of Ahsoka Tano during her vision in Episode IX would indicate that Snips is dead, with the theory putting forward the notion that Rebels arc ‘Worlds Between Worlds’ had created two separate timelines. In one of them, Ahsoka didn’t make it, which is why she appears to Rey along with the other deceased members of the Order, while in the secondary timeline she survived and used her knowledge to point Din Djarin and Baby Yoda in the direction of Luke Skywalker.

That means that not only did Episodes VII, VIII and IX not technically happen, but by training Grogu at his Academy two decades before The Force Awakens in The Mandalorian‘s established mythology, Luke would have a better handle on how to control the Dark Side and therefore he won’t fear Ben Solo’s power, meaning no Kylo Ren either.
