The Best of Baby Yoda: GIFs From ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2 #SciFiSunday
Vulture continues its incomparable Mandalorian coverage (heavy on the Baby Yoda).
The first season of The Mandalorian introduced a compelling, powerful new hero into the Star Wars universe. We’re talking, of course, about the small, green, sleepy, broth-loving creature known officially as the Child — and then, once Mando had a fateful encounter with the Jedi Ahsoka Tano, as “Grogu” — but unofficially by the much better name Baby Yoda. (For the sake of Disney not getting mad at us, we hereby acknowledge that the Child Grogu is not actually a young version of Yoda — the timeline doesn’t work out for that — but he is a 50-year-old, and therefore quite infantile, member of the general Yoda species.) As we’ve gotten to know him better this season, we’ve learned that Baby Yoda is primarily a big fan of food, even when it means eating the eggs of a nice frog woman, and that his emotional connection with Mando might be a bad thing for his future, Jedi-wise.
Last season, we devoted much of our coverage of The Mandalorian to focusing on just what happened with Yoda in each episode in adorable GIF form, and this season, we’re back at it again. Obviously. When we left off, Mando and Baby Yoda were off on an adventure to parts unknown to find others of Baby Yoda’s kind, with the creepy Moff Gideon trailing behind them. Will Mando learn better child-rearing skills this time around? Will the guild start a day-care program? Will Baby Yoda make friends with more quirky American comedian guest stars? We can only hope.
