Yesterday, director and producer Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids, From Dusk Till Dawn, Frank Miller’s Sin City), gave his social media followers the cutest Christmas gift — a video of him jamming with Grogu on The Mandalorian set!

Rodriguez captioned the Twitter post:
Rodriguez — whose IMDb page confirms he is working as executive producer on the first episode of is upcoming Mandalorian spinoff series The Book of Boba Fett — directed The Mandalorian Season 2, Episode 6 (Chapter 14: The Tragedy).
The episode was one of the second season’s most intense, with Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) losing Grogu (AKA The Child AKA Baby Yoda) to Moff Gideon’s Dark Trooper squadron while the young foundling sat on the “Seeing Stone” on the planet Tython.
Djarin had been directed to Tython by Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) in the previous episode — Season 2, Episode 5 (Chapter 13: The Jedi) — of John Favreau and Dave Filoni’s hit Star Wars streaming series.
At this time, following The Mandalorian Season 2 finale, few details are known about the upcoming third season of the popular Disney+ show.
Creator and showrunner Jon Favreau recently confirmed that The Book of Boba Fett — announced in a post-credits scene during Season 2, Episode 8 (Chapter 16: The Rescue) — will air in December 2021. It is, as per Rodriguez’s IMDb, currently filming.
When Disney’s 2021 release schedule dropped last week, The Mandalorian — and two of it’s spinoffs, Ahsoka and Rangers of the New Republic — were not listed, so we do not know when we will next see Din Djarin and the Darksaber on our television screens.
Grogu, for his part, left with Luke Skywalker (CGI Mark Hamill) at the end of the second season finale, and details have not been released about whether or not the popular character will return in The Mandalorian Season 3 or if he will be part of yet another spinoff, potentially featuring Skywalker.
