Who is Baby Yoda and why is it so popular?

The whole of the Internet and the meme world was drooling over cute Baby Yoda pictures throughout the quarantine. Who is this cute quotient with whom everyone seems to be smitten? Read ahead to find out

The Disney+ original series The Mandalorian became a massive hit, and its fans have around a million questions about the series’ breakout star. From the moment it appeared on the screen in the premiere of the new Disney+ series, The Mandalorian on November 12, this creature called Baby Yoda became a kind of an Internet sensation.

Baby Yoda has captured the imagination of this country, which is no small matter, because except that he seems to be a member of an unnamed species like Jedi Master Yoda, his origin has hardly been revealed and has traditionally been kept secret.

Who is Baby Yoda?

So, he is a mysterious character, he is a magical character. He has no background. He comes and goes. He is a subversive secret mysterious stranger. He enters the movie and then finally exits.

The abbreviation we know about Yoda himself is: Yoda died in Return of the Jedi, the Mandalorian was set after Return of the Jedi, and Yoda returned as a Force ghost in The Last Jedi.

In the first chapter of The Mandalorian, the mission of the bounty hunter in the center of the story is to arrest an important target, except for his age (50 years) and the last known location, they have little information. 

The final moments of the episode reveal this asset, and it turns out that he is super cute.

Why is Yoda famous?

Because we argue, Baby Yoda is all of us… as children! As anthropologists, we believe that how the creators of this creature successfully modeled it on human attributes and its appearance can provide insight into how and why humans consider certain beings and certain behaviors to be undeniably loved.

Evolutionary scientists have commented on his neotenic or youthful qualities: those large, beautiful eyes, large ears, and clumsy short limbs that characterize human babies (and many domesticated animals).

But frankly, these were also the characteristics of the original Yoda; although he is cute, he does not hold a candle in front of Baby Yoda.

Few Details of Baby Yoda and the series:

The Mandalorian occurred after the fall of the empire, but before the rise of Kylo Ren and the appearance in First Force Order.

Therefore, the timeline does not support the notion that his collective joy is the real Yoda, who died at the age of 900 in Return of the Jedi.

Although fans have always referred to Baby Yoda as a baby, we must disagree. The behavior of the baby Yoda in Chapter 2 of the series-constantly crawling out of the crib-leads us to believe that the animal is a toddler. Mandalorian, may the force be with you. The child is very strong.

The non-Yoda child has yet to fully master his (or her) skills, but we know that the Child is Force-sensitive. In Chapter 2, the Mandalorian fights a rhino-like beast that threatens to defeat him.

Little Yoda, watching nervously from his floating cradle, raises his little hand and the beast stops.

Little Yoda finally passes out, which reminds us of something Yoda said in Return of the Jedi: “I am strong in strength … but not that strong.” Keep trying.

Some facts about Baby Yoda:

– Baby Yoda was born in same year as Anakin Skywalker

– Yoda species matures between the age of 50 and 100 years

– Their average lifespan is less than we can think

– Their force connection is heightened by the power of the brain

– Yodas have green blood

– Yodas are natural carnivores

Theories of Baby Yoda:

Baby Yoda clone theory suggests that Dr. Pershing is a cloning scientist, based on the symbols on his uniform. This suggests that the little alien was created on Kamino in the same facility where the clone soldiers were made and that there is a strong connection between Baba Yoda’s origins and that part of the Star Wars.

One suggests he is Yoda and Yaddle’s baby, and as far as the timeframe goes, it’s not absurd. If Little Yoda is 50, he would have been born about 10 years before the events of The Phantom Menace, and presumably both Yoda and Yaddle would be on the Jedi Council at that point.


Baby Yoda’s craze probably means that we can expect the Star Wars universe to remain mired in pre-existing iconography and continue to emphasize the familiar, not the new. 

But that’s what has happened since the original trilogy ended, and since people like to slander prequels, George Lucas was there to find that the fan’s hunger for the explosion far exceeded their love of mystery or ambiguity.

Even as an infant, Baby Yoda has the power to levitate a giant (and furious) fender, while the only other member of the species to appear on-screen as mentioned earlier was Yaddle, a female on the Jedi Council.

He briefly appears in The Phantom Menace.

However, Baby Yoda’s sweetness goes way beyond his adorable looks. While the show’s cast of humans, aliens, and even robots may find its physical features attractive, its appeal is as much a product of his actions.

The behaviors it exhibits and the reactions it causes from other characters are what really melts hearts and changes your mind.
