THE MANDALORIAN: Who Is [SPOILER]? Everything You Need To Know About Today's Huge Debut

Today's jaw-dropping episode of The Mandalorian featured a massive debut and a greater insight into what happened to Grogu on the night of Order 66. In this article, we explain who that character was...

Who is Jedi Master Kelleran Beq?

After today's episode of The Mandalorian, titled "The Foundling," we're sure that's a question many of you are asking. Dave Filoni co-wrote Chapter 20 alongside Jon Favreau and while many of you will be quick to assume this is a character from The Clone Wars or Star Wars Rebels, the reality is quite a bit different. 

Ahmed Best is, of course, best known for playing Jar Jar Binks in the Star Wars prequels. Unfortunately, the response to the character saw the actor unfairly targeted by some fans, with Best previously revealing he contemplated suicide. The tide has thankfully changed in recent years, but he returned to the franchise for the Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge game show. 

While not exactly canon to the wider series of movies and TV shows, that show at least offered a few hints about the character we now know was responsible for saving Grogu. 

As we explained in our breakdown earlier today, it was Kelleran who managed to fend off the invading Clone Troopers at the Jedi Temple before a perilous journey across Coruscant that saw the duo escape on what appears to be a Naboo starship. 

We don't know where they ended up after that trip through hyperspace but have previously learned that this Jedi Master's skills with a lightsaber are what earned him the nickname "Sabererd Hand" when he was a Padawan. 

In the aforementioned game show, he supervised Padawans as they went through their Jedi Trials and was assisted by the protocol droid AD-3 and the astromech droid LX-R5. Neither of them is present here, unfortunately, and we don't expect them to appear now Kelleran and Grogu are on the run from the Empire. 

For the time being, that's about as much of his history as we're aware of, and we're guessing the plan now is to create a new story for him in The Mandalorian. It's good to have a basis of who he is, though, and the Jedi Master must have had strong ties to Grogu given how desperate the other Jedi were to get The Child to him. 

It's worth noting that, as he bears a resemblance to Mace Windu, Kelleran could be the Jedi we saw encased in one of those nectar-like holding cells inside Fortress Inquisitorius in Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Let's hope now, though, eh?
