The untold truth of Baby Yoda

The untold truth of Baby Yoda

Baby Yoda, an unexpected cultural phenomenon character from Disney+'s new Star Wars show, The Mandalorian, is receiving nearly double the number of social media engagements as any 2020 Democratic primary candidate. Still, since there are now "no updates" from Lucasfilm on his next Star Wars endeavor, the sliver of hope that he could direct the Disney+ series in the future is still there. The result is that viewers can imagine Baby Yoda filled with emotions, some painful and some joyous, that he simply must work out through the power of all types of music. The first Baby Yoda products turned out to be very disappointing, as they were just t-shirts and a mug with concept art of the character. To be fair to all of us, baby Yoda is exceptionally cute.

Well, you can stop holding your breath for an answer, you probably won't have to watch Baby Yoda perish just yet. Well, we're not entirely sure what the deal with baby Yoda is - but here's everything we know so far.

There are so many great Cyber Monday Star Wars deals to be had in 2019, so if your new hope is to pick up some bargains from a galaxy far, far away, you're in luck.

Not much, given that he's essentially a baby (he does some stuff but that's a spoiler). Twitter users edit a song of their choice in the scene so that it is read whenever Baby Yoda presses the button again.

The cockpit is full of colorful lights and interesting switches, catnip for tiny children - so of course our big-eared baby can't help but touch them. Oh well. Enjoying baby Yoda while he's here will still be enough.

In fact, fans couldn't help but spot a little slip-up in the latest episode of Jon Favreau's Star Wars live-action series.

In short, many people are swooning, which must please the executives at Disney Plus, the streaming service that created the show.
