To legendary meme status Baby Yoda ascended has. The internet has been going nuts and completely losing its mind over baby Yoda. And it’s all thanks to Disney+’s new show ‘The Mandalorian.’ The moment people saw itty-bitty Yoda on the screen, it instantly became a meme-worthy character and that is the reason why you see it in your feed when you open up Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
And you know what? We love it. 50-year-old Baby Yoda’s a great combination of cuteness mixed with the potential to be a complete badass when he grows up. Face it, Yoda’s the coolest character in Star Wars (change my mind), therefore, it’s only logical that Baby Yoda is the cutest.
We’ve collected some of the best, the funniest, and the cutest Baby Yoda memes, so scroll down and feast your eyes. Upvote your faves, let us know in the comments what you think of Baby Yoda, as well as Star Wars, and be sure to share this list with anyone who needs a good chuckle or a mega-dose of cuteness! We’d also love to hear your opinions about the newest Star Wars movies and what direction you’d like them to go in the future.
Disney+’s ‘The Mandalorian’ live-action series about the titular bounty hunter is a hit (so far) and it has a lot to do with Baby Yoda, who is one of the characters on the show.
In the show, Baby Yoda is known as ‘The Child’ and we won’t be spoiling too much, but suffice to say, it’s an important character. (On that note, are there any characters with ‘The’ in their names who aren’t important? The Writer seems to think not.)
Bored Panda spoke to Star Wars fan Alastair Bailey who is an expert in the universe’s lore and has a lot of in-depth knowledge about the series. How big of a Star Wars fan is he? He is literally wearing Darth Vader socks this very moment.
According to Bailey, there are several reasons as to why Baby Yoda is such a huge hit on the internet. First and foremost is the fact that Baby Yoda is ‘adorable.’ Nostalgia, the fact that two generations of Star Wars fans love Yoda, and that his species is ‘very mysterious’ also factor into Baby Yoda’s appeal.
However, Bailey doesn’t agree with The Writer’s opinion that Yoda is the coolest Star Wars character. “I mean, Darth Vader is pretty badass, especially in the comics and expanded universe. They really showcase his power.” While I understand and respect Bailey’s opinion, I still believe that Yoda could easily beat Vader.
Bored Panda also asked Bailey what he thought of the newest Star Wars movies. “They are enjoyable films but not great films,” he said, expressing hope that the newest film will be better than the previous two since Disney took over the production.
Finally, we asked Bailey what alien species he’d be in the Star Wars universe and wondered what type of lightsaber he’d have. “Miraluka, they are a species that have no eyes but perceive the world around them using The Force,” he said, noting that ideally he’d like to have a silver or yellow double-bladed lightsaber in the style of Asajj Ventress, Padawan to the infamous Count Dooku.
Shockingly, there is no official name for Yoda’s alien species! It’s literally called ‘Yoda’s species.’ With how much lore and fanfiction there is about the Star Wars universe, this in itself is fascinating.
What we do know about these aliens is that they are incredibly long-lived. So being a 50-year-old is still being a child. The Yodas of Star Wars are kind of like the Elves and Dwarves of The Lord of the Rings: they probably don’t move out of their parents’ home until they’re 180.
