Baby Yoda is stealing hearts of fans

Baby Yoda is stealing hearts of fans”

Of all the good shows worth streaming right now, The Mandalorian on Disney+ stands out. Inspired by the Disney+ live-action series The Mandalorian, this sweet Star Wars plush toy makes a Force-sensitive addition to your collection.

Now, if you're not a major Star Wars fan, you might be wondering why, exactly, the internet is so bent out of shape over the appearance of a tiny, green, adorably wrinkly 50-year-old baby. Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter about his insane year (outside The Mandalorian he was directing The Lion King, starring in Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home and co-hosting Netflix's The Chef Show), Favreau put the topic on his baby Yoda = popular theory. We know what his identity depends on his conduct and a big motivator for he, yet we don't have the foggiest idea about a ton of insights regarding where he originates from or his species.

"I think that part of what people really value is to be surprised and delighted, and I think that's becoming all too rare", he explained.

What Favreau said is absolutely true. Not just because it's a great addition to the Star Wars universe, but also because of one little, adorable, Force-infused Baby Yoda that you've probably seen everywhere online in the past few weeks.

"That emulated more how my experience was growing up".

Unfortunately for fans of the little guy, this Funko won't be out in time for the holidays - in fact, Baby Yoda's Funko will arrive in February 2020, long after The Mandalorian is finished (they're up for pre-order on Walmart already).

Though all of the official apparel is now unavailable to Canadian customers, it seems those interested are able to pre-order certain Baby Yoda-inspired items from Disney's official online store, including an 11-inch plush doll by Mattel, as well as two different Funko Pops.

Favreau continued, reminding us readers that because of the time period of The Mandalorian (it takes place five years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI - The Return of the Jedi), there is a lot of narrative ground to cover within the Star Wars canon before we get to the current trilogy that is set to end with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

"There's definitely the opportunity to explore these characters beyond what we've presented on the show", Favreau told the outlet.
