By now, you’ve seen The Mandalorian.
I know Disney + isn’t available in Singapore but I know you’ve seen it. I’ve seen it. My brothers have seen it. My mum has seen it. The uncle at the coffee shop down below has seen it. Everybody’s seen it…even those who are dead.
…and everybody’s wondering about this guy.
The Child aka Baby Yoda.
Its cuteness is on a scale akin to the Empire’s superweapons.
If it was somehow captured and made into a weapon, it’d destroy the whole universe when used. It is, by far, the cutest being in the Star Wars universe at this time.
Even Daisy Ridley (Rey) thinks so.
But there are questions.
Oh so many questions! So many questions that the three (so far) episodes of The Mandalorian have been very very vague about answering!
So I’ve taken it upon myself (as the resident Star Wars super fan) to dispense knowledge to the masses!
Let’s get started…
1 – Is that Yoda?
No. It’s not. Same species but different beings.
2 – You sure?
99% sure. I’m reserving the 1% in case it IS Yoda and time traveling is involved.
3 – Is it a clone then?
Maybe. Not sure yet but Episode 3 – The Sin might have provided a clue. Remember the doctor guy who wanted Baby Yoda alive? He might be associated with the Kaminoans, the cloners who created the Clone Army from Episode 2.
4 – If it’s not a clone, who are its parents?
Nobody knows. I’m going to be the first to come out and say this; it’s the love child of Yoda and Yaddle, the result of a night of hot torrid muppet passion.
5 – Who the hell is Yaddle?
She’s a Jedi originally seen in The Phantom Menace and then appeared in some Dark Horse comics. Nobody knows what happened to her post-Order 66, at least in the new Disney era Expanded Universe.
6 – How long does the species live?
Yoda lived up to be around 900…so pretty damn long.
7 – So how old is Baby Yoda?
50! Come on, it’s mentioned in the show!
8 – Did it use the Force?
Yes it did. Have you even watched Star Wars before? If not, I’m sorry you were living under a rock or/and in a coma for the last 43 years. Hope you feel better.
9 – Why does the Imperial Remnant want it?
They want its genetic ‘material’…so maybe they want to clone it? A clone army of evil Force sensitive murder midgets would be exactly the kind of thing the Empire does for kicks.
10 – Why isn’t Baby Yoda in the new movies?
Good question! No idea…maybe it is! For all we know, he’s (or she’s) one of the Knights of Ren!
There you have it! If you’ve any more questions, leave them in the comments and I’ll try to answer them.
