The Mandalorian Made a Star Wars Legends Nod to Taungsday and Benduday

In one other recycling of the “Bendu,” the Empire-era “Star Wars Rebels” cartoon launched a sentient that calls himself the Bendu (voiced by Tom Baker), a titan Power-sensitive entity with a moose-like, Henson-esque visage that burrows itself within the planet of Atollan. For “Rebels” viewers who may not know of the Bendu monks (as a result of these monks are relegated to non-television supplemental materials), they may interpret Benduday as a reference to this beast. 

Nevertheless, in-universe, “Benduday” clearly would not be named after the mysterious and obscure creature who would most likely be detached to fame. But, his shared identify with the Bendu monks underlines the Buddhist-influenced concepts of steadiness that permeate Power philosophies. A impartial pressure, the creature claims to exist as “the one within the center,” between the sunshine and the darkish aspect, between Jedi and Sith. Principally, the Bendu’s best aspiration is simply to get some peace — and many sleep. And when the Bendu does get indignant, he unleashes his Power wrath on each Empire and Revolt (within the “Zero Hero” season 3 finale).

“Rebels” depicts the Bendu as effectively conscious of Jedi, Sith, their holocrons, and their pesky conflicts. Though the Bendu can advise Jedi if he is in the correct temper, we do not know for certain if he performed a job in inspiring Power philosophies in different pre-Jedi sentients lengthy earlier than the occasions of “Rebels.”
