'The Mandalorian' Star Werner Herzog Got Emotional Over Baby Yoda

Wednesday, 20 Nov, 2019

If you've been watching the new Star Wars series The Mandalorian on Disney Plus, you've already seen the absolute world-class cutie fans are calling Baby Yoda.

For "Star Wars" fans or Disney fanatics who signed up on the service's first day, which reports say numbered over 10 million, the most intriguing piece of new content awaiting them was "The Mandalorian" (2019-).

"The Mandalorian", which premiered November 12, was already the third most in-demand original streaming show in the U.S. last week, behind only DC Universe's "Titans" and Netflix's "Stranger Things".

Along with The Mandalorian, different upcoming Star Wars collection will embody a present that stars Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi and a prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which is ready to function the return of Diego Luna as Cassian Andor and Alan Tudyk as Okay-2SO. This is the franchise that gave us adorable Ewoks, quirky droids, and delicious Porgs, after all - not to mention Force-sensitive kids with a penchant for attracting trouble. In "The Mandalorian"'s most emotional moments, the camera zooms in, the music swoons, but we can't pierce through the mask to see how he grapples with the moment, creating a wall between him and the viewer.

Could he be Yoda's child?

Warning: This post contains spoilers for the Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian.

Episode 2, deftly directed by Dope helmer Rick Famuyiwa, functions much the same way for the audience.

The first season has 8 episodes, and the other season is expected to be arriving soon as there may be so many unanswered questions to this show in the first season. From here on out, we may reference The Mandalorian character in question in headlines and use the character in header images that appear on the front page and in our social media channels. Here's what we do know.

There was a condition of the bounty that would have allowed The Mandalorian, and the robot bounty hunter IG-11 (Taika Waititi) to bring Baby Yoda in dead for a reduced bounty. Between the movements of its giant ears and big, guileless eyes, you've got to imagine that Disney is already mass-producing interactive toy versions for the holiday season.

We don't really know as of this writing if the past history of this species will be explored, but to meet another member of Yoda's species is a big deal.

The story of Mandalorians was basically described in The Clone and Wars and Rebels.
