Facts about Baby Yoda
Baby Yoda Biography
Baby Yoda is the hugely popular character from the 2019 Disney TV series The Mandalorian. He is a focus of the series’ first season, when he is captured and then protected by the bounty hunter called the Mandalorian.
Known only as “the Child” in the actual story, the character was dubbed Baby Yoda by fans due to his close resemblance to Yoda, the wizened Jedi master from Star Wars films. With his big ears, wide eyes and wrinkled brow, he is clearly from a similar species, although nothing in the story suggests directly that he is himself a young Yoda or even is related to him.
Although Baby Yoda appears to be an infant or toddler, he is described in the series as being 50 years old. At one point he uses his mind to incapacitate a beast as it attacks the Mandalorian, suggesting that he is familiar with the magical power known as the Force.
Baby Yoda was created by Jon Favreau, who wrote and directed the first episodes of The Mandalorian.
