in Disney, Star Wars, Television

Can you believe it was about 1-year Baby Yoda burst onto the scene as the 50-year-old ball of cuteness! Disney+ launched November 12, 2019 with The Mandalorian debuting the same day. When The Child was introduced to viewers at the end of the first episode Baby Yoda fever took hold and it had a tremendous impact on the growth trajectory of the streaming service.

The degree to which Disney+ has impacted the Walt Disney Company as a whole is staggering. For example, Walt Disney Studios ultimately made the decision to release several films originally intended for theatrical release, including Onward, Mulan, and Soul, on Disney+.

Despite all of this, however, The Mandalorian, is the most popular of all shows on Disney+ in its first year.

Since its release, the Star Wars show has not only become Disney’s flagship streaming series, but has also taken the internet by storm, thanks in large part to breakout star The Child’s (AKA “Baby Yoda”) hilarious memes.

Show-runner John Favreau and other executives made the right call not doing any merchandising that featured the adorable character prior to The Mandalorian Season 1. This gamble paid-off the second Star Wars fans met The Child for the first time!

From the moment the little guy came on-screen, he captured the hearts of every viewer and, arguably, everyone on Earth, Star Wars fan or not. Now, Baby Yoda is on everything from cereal boxes to bedding sets and you couldn’t escape him even if you wanted to (but, really, who would?)

Baby Yoda’s age is definitely an intriguing topic. According to Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, we know that Yoda’s species can live to be up to 900 years old. The rate of maturity among their kind is uncertain.

We’ve all done it. You’re walking into your local pharmacy and you see the surveillance feed. As you grab a shopping cart you stare at yourself until out of frame. We all wish we looked as adorable as Baby Yoda, but we all think the same thing. “Man, I need to lose weight.” Guilty as charged.

A more accurate Baby Yoda meme may not exist. We can’t deny that BB8, the Porgs, and D-O are all adorable. However, none of them hold a candle to the cuteness overload that is Baby Yoda.

I can’t count the number of times this has happened to me personally. In some cases, he would finish whatever he was doing and forget I was there. I only wish I had Jedi powers:  “Dad, *waves hand* you want to buy me more Baby Yoda merch.” It’s good to have goals.

To borrow a quote from a Disney classic: “Tale as old as time.” Even in the earliest days of video games, this was always a possibility. Though, if it happened to Baby Yoda, he may enlist the help of his Bounty Hunter guardian. Watch out GameStop employee! Don’t make the little guy mad!

Starting a new job is equal parts exciting and nerve-wracking. Either way, you walk in fresh-faced and ready for the new challenge. Then, life happens, and you’re left looking like a Dagobah swamp dweller.  Enjoy your youth, folks!
