Did the most recent episode of Ahsoka finally explain why we've met so few of Yoda's species in the Star Wars universe up until now? See what you make of the theory...

One of the biggest unexplained and most-discussed aspects of the Star Wars universe is the origin of Yoda's species. So far, we've only met three individuals of the still unnamed, diminutive alien race: Yoda himself, the prequel's Yaddle (whose fate was revealed in the recent Tales of the Jedi animated anthology series), and The Mandalorian's Grogu.

None of the animated shows or expanded universe novels/comics have ever really given us a definitive answer about Yoda's people or their origin, and the likes of Dave Filoni has side-stepped the question in the past. However, the most recent episode of Ahsoka may have given us a little more to go on.

Whether the theory proves to be accurate or not, spoilers for the penultimate season 1 episode of Ahsoka follow.

In "Far, Far Away," we catch up with Sabine Wren and her captors in the uncharted galaxy that Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn were transported to by the Purrgil (space whales) in the series finale of Star Wars Rebels. We don't get to explore too much of this strange new world, but Sabine does encounter a new race of Hermit Crab-inspired humanoid creatures, who have befriended Ezra.

The Yoda theory is very simple: If this new galaxy is home to various creatures and alien races that we haven't come across in the main Star Wars universe, isn't it possible that Yoda's species hails from this same world?

We don't have much more to go on beyond this initial speculation, but perhaps this week's season finale of Ahsoka will provide some more answers? Be sure to tune in tonight to find out, and share your own theories with us in the comments section down below in the meantime.

Set after the fall of the Empire, Ahsoka follows the former Jedi knight Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy.

The series stars Rosario Dawson in the title role, with Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla, Diana Lee Inosanto as Morgan Elsbeth, Ivanna Sakhno as Shin Hati, Ray Stevenson as Baylan Skoll, David Tennant as Huyang, Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn, with Eman Esfandi appearing as Ezra Bridger.

Kevin Kiner was announced as the series' composer.

Ahoska is written by executive producer Dave Filoni, alongside executive producers Favreau, Kennedy, Wilson, and Beck. Gilchrist is co-executive producer. The series’ directors include Filoni, Steph Green, Peter Ramsey, Jennifer Getzinger, Geeta Vasant Patel and Rick Famuyiwa.

I don't usually judge the content of these articles but this one is a bit silly. There are huge numbers of Star Wars characters whose race has not been shown beyond token characters. Just because we have only encountered three of Yoda's species does not mean anything. I could say the same thing about Max Rebo. This may be a case of over analyzing.

He’s from planet StuJon. Lucas said it himself.

Maybe the power that Baylon Skoll seeks has to do with finding a race of beings that can harness/manipulate this power.

@sKeemAn - it’s definitely some great evil or something calling to him. So far we know shin said the night sisters and thrawn are fleeing it, and we know thrawn said his storm trooper numbers have dwindled. We don’t know why they dwindled, but because of that, it’s why he doesn’t want to send a bigger squad going after Sabine, shin and baylan. So he definitely knows there’s something out there that’s been kicking his ass and it couldn’t be the tribesman Sabine fought. I’ve seen some ppl think this great evil has a hold on Ezra and Ezra’s the one been chewing out the storm troopers and that his chain mail is made from dog tags. Idk that’s a big leap for me, idk what storm trooper dog tags look like and I don’t think we have a reference point for that. And I don’t think Ezra is caught by some great evil cuz that kinda diminishes his growth from rebels, but I do think Ezra knows something is out there and that’s why he and his hermits move camps often. Somethings up that I can’t wait to find out, hopefully todays episode gets into it.

@whoknows - Could potentially be someone like Bindu who can manipulate the force like we've never seen before. But you would think with Ezra being there for so long he would have more info. That could also be why he's trying to to go back as well. With them being in a different galaxy the possibilities are almost endless.

@sKeemAn - I was thinking bendu too, but now I’m thinking it really is something more sinister, especially after the last episode, baylan lets shin go. And I know it’s partly because he realizes their own different paths, because she wasn’t seeing or feeling what he was. But I also feel like it’s because he’s trying to save her from whatever he’s searching for, like he wants to bare the burden of it. But that’s just assumptions. It just feels very fatherly and protective for some reason.

@sKeemAn - and now that I think about it, although we know baylan is more of a dark jedi, especially with his outfit, shit is grey/brown, and maybe those color choices show her inner conflict that baylan is now recognizing. Maybe she’ll turn face at some point to go against thrawn or shit we don’t even know if she’s riding back to thrawn or riding back to find her master. Orrrrr I could be reading too much into it and the color of their robes is just to high light the colors of the Norse Wolves of legend Skoll and hati because I think their always depicted as white and black, at least in the art of them I’ve seen since the shows been released
