When The Mandalorian premiered on Disney+ last year, Baby Yoda became an instant sensation. Even people who don’t consider themselves Star Wars fans love the adorable character.
The Child’s popularity has sparked all sorts of inspiration on the internet, including a baby Darth Maul fan edit. Now, Instagram user @leovitiart has created an animation of baby Jar Jar Binks that just might be the new cutest thing in the Star Wars universe!
No matter what you think about Jar Jar Binks, this animation of the character as a baby is too adorable for words!
Followers loved this rendition of Jar Jar, leaving comments like:
Thats so good! Amazing design, modelling, animation and render🔥🔥
Omg Leo!!!!! This is so awesome!!! Jar Jar in best (cutest) form!!!!!
This isn’t the first time Leonardo Viti, the artist behind @leovitiart, has delved into recreating Star Wars characters. Last year, he shared two posts of baby Jabba the Hutt. Baby Jabba is a 3D model instead of an animation.
The artist suggested that his tiny, surprisingly cute version of Jabba could be the new star of The Mandalorian. We’re not sure he’s got what it takes to upstage Baby Yoda, but we do love this impressive Star Wars fan art!
As the Star Wars fan community anxiously awaits Season 2 of The Mandalorian this October, fan art like this is a fun distraction!
In addition to the development of a third season of The Mandalorian, the Walt Disney Company is working on numerous other new shows set in the Star Wars universe. Disney and Lucasfilm executives have confirmed that the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, Pilgrim, is moving forward and an animated Bad Batch series is in the works for 2021.
There are also rumors of a Donald Glover Lando Calrissian prequel series and numerous series featuring Darth Maul.
What do you think about the baby Jar Jar Binks animation?
