There’s no context, just George Lucas holding Baby Yoda. It’s cute. It’s adorable. It’s heartwarming, especially when you think about how Lucas is basically this cute little puppet’s granddaddy. Soak it in. Get your Baby Yoda dose. Let Baby Yoda wash away all that is stressing you out. Find hope in this photo. Find joy in this photo.
The Mandalorian wrapped up its eight-episode season with Mando (Pedro Pascal) successfully rescuing Baby Yoda/The Child and committing to trying to find out more about him (her?) and where he came from, or raise him as his own.
According to Deadline, season two will likely include characters from the Skywalker saga of Star Wars. Who? Who knows!
“I knew that people would be talking about Baby Yoda, but I also know Baby Yoda’s real name,” Waititi told EW. “So, if you’re gonna do me a favor, please stop calling him Baby Yoda. Or is it a her! No one knows!”
The Mandalorian season one is now streaming on Disney+.
