The new Star Wars series The Mandalorian, on Disney+, is driving the internet nuts with what looks like a doe-eyed, Baby Yoda.
This creature is at the center of the new Star Wars series story line but is it really Master Yoda as a baby? (Sure looks like it to me.)
There are a few theories on who this character actually is. According to CNN,
It might actually be Yoda’s offspring, or the child of another member of the same species. Perhaps there was a love interest in the famed green Jedi Master’s life? As far as fandom is concerned, there is only one other Yoda species: Yaddle, who made an appearance on Episode 1 of the live-action movies.
So, the question remains, how did this baby Yoda species come to exist? Perhaps it’s a clone of the 900-year-old Jedi Master? The Star Wars story line is no stranger to the idea of cloning. This technology is the focus of its previous animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
The series is already popular, with episode one racking up nearly 40 million “demand expressions,” according to research firm Parrot Analytics.
Episode 3 is out next week, so I guess we’ll at least get some more clues.
The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau shared this on his Twitter account.
