The Mandalorian Season 2 Could Reveal Second Star Wars Villain Who Wants Baby Yoda Dead

There is little doubt that fans don't like seeing Baby Yoda in trouble. After all, there was a huge uproar when that Stormtrooper punched The Child in the season finale of The Mandalorian. But is it possible that we'll be meeting someone who actually wants Baby Yoda to be killed? A new theory suggests that there is a second Star Wars villain who actually wanted to kill the innocent infant.

We already know that Moff Gideon has always wanted Baby Yoda for some unexplained reason. However, the villain had somehow made sure that the Child would be brought to him alive. This was already indicated by Dr. Pershing's concern for the "target" being harmed. On the other hand, there may have been somebody else who wanted to get rid of Baby Yoda completely.

Screenrant has pointed out that in the first episode of The Mandalorian, Din Djarin teams up with IG-11, the bounty droid who was also set to go after the same target. When they discover that the bounty is actually The Child, IG-11 immediately suggests killing it as it has been ordered to do. However, Djarin didn't like this idea and immediately shot the droid to save Baby Yoda.

We're glad that The Child is now in Djarin's hands. On the other hand, there's still one problem: Who had sent IG-11 with the orders to kill the bounty? The theory suggests that the mysterious character may have sent others after Baby Yoda and we will get to see them in The Mandalorian Season 2.

Do you think there is another villain who wants Baby Yoda dead in The Mandalorian Season 2? Sound off in the comments below.
