Now that Disney+ has officially debuted, fans are flooded with new and nostalgic content to binge-watch. One particular TV show is gaining a massive amount of attention, primarily due to an extremely adorable new character. The Mary Sue writes about how The Mandalorian has fans obsessing over one particular development: baby Yoda.
Yes, this is a real thing that is actually happening on television. The most adorable alien ever to be created can currently be found on Disney+. I mean, just look at this precious face. Don't tell me your heart doesn't melt when you gaze into baby Yoda's giant eyes.
I want to give this little creature a hug and be its best friend. Also, if Disney doesn't come out with stuffed baby Yoda toys soon, they may have a revolt on their hands.
To be clear, this is probably not THE Yoda that fans have followed across the film franchise. According to Buzzfeed, Yoda died in Return of the Jedi at age 900. The Mandalorian takes places five years after that movie. Unless Yoda is reincarnated as a baby, it is probably another member of the species. Either way, the adoration for this character on social media has exploded. Fans all across the world are rallying around this tiny green bean who really just wants a hug.
While only a couple of episodes of The Mandalorian have been released thus far, this infant Yoda is clearly becoming the star of the show. As more episodes are released week by week, fans will no doubt get more adorable and wholesome Yoda content. Hopefully, Disney realizes the massive hit they have on their hands and will make enough Yoda merchandise to satisfy all of us die hard fans. Baby Yoda could be come the most iconic character of the holiday season.
