The Mandalorian theories: Fans expose how Moff Gideon's plan connects to The Force Awakens

Moreover, the final moments of Chapter 12 confirmed more details about Imperial leader Moff Gideon’s plans to get his hands on the Force-sensitive Child.

Also known colloquially as Baby Yoda, the Child was said to have an incredibly high midichlorian count, which could be used to harvest powerful Force abilities.

Now it’s been revealed that the show’s creator Jon Favreau will be bringing the Empire’s Dark Troopers into the live-action series for the first time.

Gideon seemingly intends to power the formidable army with the Child’s potent blood, bringing the terrifying army from Star Wars’ extended canon to life.
