THE MANDALORIAN: A Reddit User Correctly Revealed The Child's Name THREE Months Ago
We tend to take any information sourced from Reddit with a pinch of salt, but one user shared some inside intel three months ago which correctly revealed the true name of The Child. Find more details here.
We rarely share anything from Reddit here on CBM because it's usually nonsense dreamed up by someone who's bored and looking for attention! There are occasionally some gems on there, though, and this is one of them.
During Friday's episode of The Mandalorian, Ahsoka Tano revealed that The Child's real name is Grogu. The Jedi also told Din Djarin that his ward was trained in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant before being hidden away by an unknown ally (that's definitely a story for another time). The fact that "Baby Yoda" has a name came as a shocker, and we'll likely see "Grogu" adorning merchandise very soon.
Three months ago, a user called u/Denim__Dan shared a post on r/StarWarsLeaks in which he claimed that, "a friend of mine has a relative who’s a Hollywood stuntman, and he worked on both season 1 and season 2 of [The Mandalorian]...Yesterday he told my friend that Baby Yoda will be getting a real name during this season. How he gets this name, I don’t know."
"He said [The Child's] name will be Grogu."
Well, there is is! This Redditor deserves a lot of credit for sharing this information, though we can't help but wonder whether their friend could wind up getting in trouble now this story has gone viral.
Regardless, this just shows that Reddit can (sometimes) be a reliable source for inside intel...
