As the only Disney-era Star Wars project that lacks Kathleen Kennedy's fingerprints, although this is not for want of an attempt, it was not exactly a surprise that The Mandalorian received more widespread applause from critics and fans.
Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni are clearly familiar with the source material, and the show's first season was like a breath of fresh air for a franchise that seemed determined to cling to the ties of the original trilogy as long as possible.

However, the next installment of episodes of The Mandalorian is expected to delve a little deeper into the extended canon of the franchise, with the introduction of several fan favorite characters from animated shows (like Ahsoka Tano or Bo-Katan) that seem to lay the groundwork for the next generation of Star Wars stories.
Well, it looks like Ahsoka Tano's arrival could mean more than we expected. Of course, the arrival of someone who knows the ways of the Force would make any fan think that Baby Yoda will be trained. According to the We Got This Covered, it will happen. But it will not stop there.
According to the website, Ahsoka is expected to play a more prominent role in season 3 and will teach Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) the ways of the Force as well. This may sound strange. But so far we have had no reason to doubt that The Mandalorian will not be able to handle the reintroduction of the Jedi without compromising the overall quality of the series.

Now, this certainly does not mean that the character will also become a Jedi, a destination that seems more appropriate for The Child. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story brought a new approach to Force sensitivity with Donnie Yen's Chirrut Îmwe, the sequel trilogy itself showed that Leia (Carrie Fisher) was trained by Luke (Mark Hamill), even without becoming a Jedi.
