It's set after Return Of The Jedi. The Jedi are mostly wiped out but there's still some that weren't killed by the Empire. Luke Skywalker, who is trying to bring back the Jedi Order at this time, would be a prime candidate to place The Child with. Also, she gave them a destination to go to that will allow him to decide his own future.I also thought this episode was just ok overall, my least favorite of this season.
It felt very anticlimactic. The thing I didn't get, bothered me, she has discovered maybe the most interesting or important being, she completely brushes it off. Even if not training him, why not being together for at least a while? Learn stuff. Like baby Yoda is nothing.
She then says I can't train him but go so some other Jedi train him? Like other Jedi can do other stuff? Aren't the Jedi dead? Is this series after episode 6 or 9, I don't remember.
Given that she had a front row seat to Anakin becoming Darth Vader and the galaxy being plunged into darkness for about two decades, I think she's making the right call to let someone who knows what the hell they're doing handle it.Jedi has repeatedly shown this behavior.
For everything that they are and can do they often quit and run away when they are unsure of anything including training new Jedi.
Ahsoka and Kanan (from Rebels) would fall into that category as well. Though in defense of those characters, they would have likely been throwing their lives away if they had tried to fight Vader and the Emperor. Obi-wan and Yoda needed to be in place to train Luke or Leia once they were old enough in the hopes that they could defeat the Empire.Luke, yoda and Kenobi all ran away and hid for decades.
Can’t think of more right now but these three are basically the top three.
Anakin didn’t do so well as a Jedi either.
Has there been any indication as to how long Luke was in hiding after what happened between him and Ben Solo? I got the feeling it wasn’t nearly as long as Obi-wan and Yoda’s hiding.Luke, yoda and Kenobi all ran away and hid for decades.
I guess that depends on how things are left by the end of “The Mandalorian”’s run. Did I read correctly at some point in the last year Favreau saying it’s planned to be 5 seasons? Is that still the plan?Interesting, my default thinking was that it's after episode 9. So in that case since Baby Yoda is a huge thing, wouldn't that cause issues he was never seen, mentioned in Episode 7-9?
It's the same as when we didn't know the fates of Ahsoka, Ezra or Kanan and the viewer has to assume that they're all somehow out of the situation when the movies takes place. Clearly, they won't kill Baby Yoda and it's worth noting that since The Force Awakens is 25 years away, Baby Yoda would still be pretty young by TFA and probably wouldn't be able to face off against Kylo Ren. If he's a nonverbal baby at 50, I can't imagine that he becomes an adult by 75.Interesting, my default thinking was that it's after episode 9.

I'm pretty sure it's six years between Ben killing Luke's students and The Force Awakens.Has there been any indication as to how long Luke was in hiding after what happened between him and Ben Solo? I got the feeling it wasn’t nearly as long as Obi-wan and Yoda’s hiding.
Agreed. Dave Filoni has pointed out that different age groups have 'their' Star Wars and for the kids who first came to Star Wars by way of The Clone Wars, that's their Star Wars. I'd guess that for those fans (be they male or female), Ahsoka is as important of a character as Anakin or Obi-Wan or Yoda.Ahsoka has been a leading character since 2008. The Child has been around since 2019. By virtue of that alone, Ahsoka is an established character with a rich history. And for a generation of young viewers, she was their first exposure to a female Jedi in a leading role, not an insignificant thing. Perhaps even more than Leia, she’s expanded Star Wars into something not just for little boys to see themselves as heroes in.

Obviously, nearly everyone's time for TV is limited but Rebels is well worth that time. The show focuses on a small number of characters (unlike the huge scope of The Clone Wars) a few years before the OT so there's some really cool connections between the OT & Rogue One, callbacks to things from The Clone Wars and explorations of The Force.
I personally consider Ahsoka, Ezra or Kanan secondary characters. A new Yoda is different, it's a huge thing.
