Firstly, no, he is not literally a younger Yoda, but no one knows what else to call the species Master Yoda belongs to. Secondly, I haven’t seen any parts of The Mandalorian; yet–like the rest of the world–I am obsessed.
Baby Yoda moved Werner Herzog to tears! A completely understandable reaction! This opinion piece posits that we should all mother our collective son Baby Yoda instead of bringing human children into the world! I agree!
I have Just the Baby Yoda Parts of The Mandalorian bookmarked to read when a new episode comes out (or whenever I just need to see Baby Yoda being adorable). I recommend you do the same.
Until next time, Baby Yoda!
