"The trailer for the third season of Lucasfilm’s The Mandalorian drew a record 83.5 million views in its first 24 hours after premiering Jan. 16 during the NFL wild card playoff game. That’s easily the top showing for a Star Wars Disney+ series, according to Disney. The trailer debuted online after it appeared on the TV broadcast. Previously, a trailer for Star Wars series Obi Wan-Kenobi attracted roughly 58 million views." https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-news/mandolorian-season-3-trailer-record-views-1235305415/

Hopefully Jon Favreau actually completed some scripts for this season, unlike his last few shows where he would just write six page scripts for 40 minute episodes.

I mean, its whatever the writers decide since its a fictional species. They could have him shed his skin and grow to be 300 feet tall and speak in Sonnets within an hour if they wrote him to do so. It would be dumb, but they could do so and it would be cannon.

Most of our mammalian friends age up rather quickly compared to humans. And this is even accounting for stretching or shrinking the lifespans in comparison. E.g., most herd animals are up and walking the day they are born. Humans, by comparison have a very lengthy period of prepubescent development of near helplessness for a big chunk of their lifespan. If a cow can live for 20 years, and humans for 80, then we would expect human children to be walking on their own by their 5th day of life if development scaled linearly, which it obviously doesn't. So, how do non-human species develop in relation to humans in the Star Wars universe? No one knows. Grogu's species could be in the pre-school stage for 30 years or 200 years... we don't know.

I don't disagree with you per say. Developmentally he's more on order of 16-18 months. His receptive language skills imply 2-3yo. He's toilet trained seemingly? His ambulation puts him around 2 or a bit younger, but some of that may be the frailty of his species body. Some of the force stuff confuses things mobility wise. He SHOULD NOT age up. Not out of laziness or marketing, but it would ultimately be consistent with the longevity of the species. Humanity takes an inordinate amount of time to reach maturity and I would expect a theoretically more intelligent species to take longer. All of which is to say that absolutely all of his developmental markers would suggest he is on the precipice of speech. I actually do think he is late to speech based on his attributes in the show, maybe the trauma theory has some merit. So they either may or may not choose to have him start speaking. Once expressive language starts though it should theoretically progress quickly over a few years, even if his body doesn't really follow. Baby Yoda has always been a bit of a misnomer from the public, he is very much acting like a toddler.

The Yoda canon I used for timeline aside, they have established that Grogu is more than an infant just in the two seasons and in BoBF. The trailer alone even shows he is beyond that infant stage. So while I appreciate your opinion I really don't think you're looking beyond the cute factor (which I get). So we'll see how S3 turns out, I'm just saying they've given us a lot to show this character is more than just being a cute baby plot device.

That's a lot of extrapolation from a variety of sources. I'm just pointing out that the show has written him as infantile. This was a deliberate decision. They can change that decision moving forward, but that's how they have chosen to present the character. Magical Furby is a slam dunk for a wide audience. I would love to see him aged up. Its one of the things I applaud Gunn for doing with Groot. Baby Groot was insanely popular as well and Gunn could have just left him there to be the cute character and generate merch and memes. Instead, Gunn had the character change and grow. Its why I respect Gunn a ton, even in his sillier moments. Do I see them going that route with Baby Yoda? Nope, just because the laziness of Season 2 and the reversal of the finale between seasons showed me that they are looking to give audiences what they want rather than evolve the story. I'd love to be wrong, I'm just going off of what they have shown me so far.

You didn't see the episodes where he was having Jedi mind conversations with Ahsoka (where he gives his name) and Luke (where he decides he rather go back with Din than become a Jedi)? You didn't see the episodes with the Jedi training with Luke? You didn't see the episodes with the flashbacks to Order 66 (which happened when he was under 10 years old based on timelines)? From the time he was captured after Order 66 to the time he was saved by Din he was held in captivity (apparently in stasis) and tested on, which is 40 years. This has been established in the episodes in the actual show. So just because he is introduced with characteristics of an infant or toddler doesn't mean he actually is one. Trauma, especially when involving captivity at a young age, tends to stunt ones growth. Again there is no established growth timeline for his species in canon, he is only the 3rd of his kind introduced. However if we go baesd on Yoda we do have some canon based timelines that can help us here. Yoda started in the Jedi order as a youngling, no age given on when he entered. As a youngling he jump across the lilypads same a Grogu during his Jedi training, established as canon. He started teaching other Jedi as a Master when he was age 100, established in canon, he obviously had to be able to talk in order to do that. So sometime between ages 0-100 this species learns to talk, again established canon. So its not that far-fetched to think that a member of this species at age 50 should have some ability to form words, let alone thoughts, feelings, and decision making abilities. Again based on the actual show he has at least thoughts, feelings, and decision making abilities. So anyways, long story short, there isn't anything within the show or canon that states they can't have him speak at any point moving forward other than plot.

I'm basing the implied age development off of how they have him experiencing the world. How they chose to have him walk, put things in his mouth, garble and coo, be attracted to shiny small objects, etc. They wrote him to emulate a toddler. He's like a slightly younger Gizmo as they had Gizmo able to parrot phrases. They haven't put anything in the show to lead me to think he can speak but is suffering from trauma. I know it has been supposed online as every aspect of Star Wars has been, but I'm just going off of what is in the actual show.

You're leaving out unfounded Disney/LucasFilm corporate drama.

The sequels will be debated for many, many, many more years, and then some. It's like death and taxes, you just can't escape it.

42 days to nitpick previous seasons and air unrelated grievances about the sequel trilogy for the 937th time!
