Baby Yoda is back, as adorable as ever, with new adventures!
The action-packed first trailer for Disney+’s “The Mandalorian” dropped on Tuesday, promising more of everyone’s favorite character: Baby Yoda.
The latest season of the “Star Wars” series, takes up again the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) and Baby Yoda “continuing their journey facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through a dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire,” Disney announced on Tuesday.
The new trailer shows The Mandalorian scrabbling with his quest to return Baby Yoda: “you expect me to search the galaxy and deliver this creature to a race of enemy sorcerers?” he asks, as Baby Yoda adorably perks up his ears to look up to his galactic guardian.
Jon Favreau, the creator of “Mandalorian”, head writer and showrunner who also resumed as director this season and also Executive Producer, said it was crystal-clear that Baby Yoda is not the child kind of iconic “Star Wars” character Yoda.
“The series timeline takes place after ‘Return of the Jedi,” said Favreau. “And fans of the original trilogy will remember that Yoda not only passes away but actually disappears. So Yoda exists as a Force Ghost.”
While it’s not the same character, Baby Yoda has obtained a cute name because there’s no name for Yoda species, according to Favreau. “It’s the easiest, shortest way to identify that character, which is identified in the episode as “The Child.”
But is this child, in any way, related to Yoda? Well, the director didn’t answer that question, because it’s a spoiler, and people have a lot of theories about that!
