Baby Yoda Wallpaper 4K Description
Baby Yoda originally referred to as “The Child” and “The Kid“, is a character from the Star Wars Disney+ original television series The Mandalorian. He is an infant member of the same unnamed alien species as the Star Wars characters Yoda and Yaddle, with whom he shares a strong ability in the Force. In the series, the protagonist known as “the Mandalorian” is hired to track down and capture Baby Yoda for a remnant of the fallen Galactic Empire, but instead becomes his adoptive father and protects him from the Imperials, to whom he is codenamed “The Asset“.
The character’s real name was not revealed until “Chapter 13: The Jedi“, in which it is also explained that Baby Yoda is a former Jedi training at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, who was rescued during the Great Jedi Purge and has been forced to supress his Force powers over the years to survive.
Baby Yoda and the Mandalorian are the only characters who have appeared in every episode of the series. He was created by The Mandalorian creator and showrunner Jon Favreau based upon his desire to explore the mystery around Yoda and his species. The character was further developed in early conversations between Favreau and executive producer Dave Filoni, and the character’s imagery was defined by concept artist Christian Alzmann. Baby Yoda is mostly a work of animatronics and puppetry, although accentuated with computer-generated imagery.
The puppet was designed by Legacy Effects and cost about $5 million to make. It is controlled by two technicians, one who operates the eyes and mouth and another who controls other facial expressions. The character’s voice and sounds were created using a combination of adult and infant vocals, as well as recordings of a bat-eared fox and kinkajou. The dynamic between the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda embody a theme of parenting and fatherhood prevalent in The Mandalorian, with Baby Yoda character also raising questions about good and evil and nature versus nurture in the series.
Baby Yoda has received a positive reception from fans and reviewers, is widely considered the show’s breakout character, and quickly became a popular Internet meme. The Guardian called him “2019’s biggest new character”, and The Hollywood Reporter has said the character “represents the future of Hollywood“. Many writers have described Baby Yoda as a key part in the success of Disney+.
Baby Yoda was kept secret and was deliberately withheld from The Mandalorian‘s pre-release marketing and merchandise plans to avoid leaks before the show aired. As a result, merchandise of Baby Yoda was not immediately available after the first season debuted in November 2019, which some analysts say cost Disney $2.7 million in revenue, but Bob Iger, Disney’s CEO at the time of The Mandalorian‘s premiere, has defended the strategy.
Baby Yoda quickly became a popular Internet meme. In the week following the debut of The Mandalorian, Baby Yoda was driving almost twice as many social media interactions on news stories about it as any of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. The Baby Yoda search term saw continuous growth on Google Trends in the weeks following the release of The Mandalorian. There were 2.28 million social media interactions about the characters on news stories in the first two weeks after the release of The Mandalorian, and 2 million tweets featuring the words “Baby Yoda” were sent on Twitter between November 12 and December 5, 2019.
When Favreau tweeted a concept art image of the character by artist Christian Alzmann on November 19, it received more than 34,000 retweets and 217,000 likes within one week. Various celebrities have tweeted about the character, including Ariana Grande, Elon Musk, Dwayne Johnson, Russell Wilson, Alex Rodriguez, and Donald Trump Jr. Zach Vasquez of The Guardian wrote: “It’s now practically impossible to scroll through any social media platform without being inundated with pics, videos, memes and gifs of the bug-eyed, big-eared tot.” The Los Angeles Times included Baby Yoda in its list of “2019’s Internet Obsessions”, with writer Christie D’Zurilla writing: “Baby Yoda won the Internet in 2019.”
One of the more popular memes involved a screenshot from “Chapter 4: Sanctuary” in which Baby Yoda casually sips from a mug of soup, which has been compared to a similar meme of Kermit the Frog passive-aggressively sipping a glass of tea. Another popular meme used a scene from that episode in which Baby Yoda randomly presses buttons in the cockpit of the Mandalorian’s spaceship, with most of the memes changing the audio so that it appeared Baby Yoda was trying to put various songs on the radio.
In late November 2019, the online GIF database Giphy temporarily removed its GIFs of Baby Yoda due to “confusion” over the legal status of the images, sparking outrage among fans. However, they were quickly restored, and Giphy issued an apology to Disney for having removed them. Various sports teams have created their own memes with Baby Yoda, including Los Angeles Clippers, New York Islanders, Phoenix Suns, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Francisco Giants, Sacramento Kings, Seattle Mariners, and Tennessee Volunteers football.
Grogu accompanies the Mandalorian during his search for other Mandalorians who could help him find the former’s people: the Jedi. In “Chapter 9: The Marshal”, the pair return to Tatooine and meet Cobb Vanth (Timothy Olyphant), the Marshal of Mos Pelgo, who is not a true Mandalorian, but wears Mandalorian armor. The Mandalorian helps Vanth slay a krayt dragon which had been attacking Mos Pelgo in exchange for his armor, along the way arranging an uneasy alliance between the townspeople and a Tusken Raider tribe, and developing deep respect for Vanth, to the point he entrusts him to look after Grogu, should he perish during his attempt to kill the dragon.
In “Chapter 10: The Passenger”, the Mandalorian and Grogu leave for Trask, where they must take a contact, “Frog Lady” (Misty Rosas, voiced by Dee Bradley Baker), and her eggs in exchange for a lead on other Mandalorians. During their journey, Grogu takes a liking into the eggs and eats a few of them, even when the Mandalorian explicitly forbids him from doing so. Grogu’s appetite also gets the group into trouble while stranded on Maldo Kreis, where he eats a spider-like creature egg just as the rest of the swarm hatches, though they are ultimately saved by two X-wing pilots (Dave Filoni and Paul Sun-Hyung Lee) from the New Republic.
In “Chapter 11: The Heiress”, the group arrives on Trask and, after bringing Frog Lady and her remaining eggs to her husband, the Mandalorian and Grogu encounter Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) and two other Mandalorian warriors, who save them from a crew of Quarrens who tried to kill the two and steal the Mandalorian’s armor. While the Mandalorian accompanies Bo-Katan’s team on a mission in exchange for a lead on Jedi, Grogu is left with the Frog Man and Frog Lady, during which time the eggs hatch and Grogu bonds with the newborn tadpoles.
In “Chapter 12: The Siege”, the Mandalorian and Grogu return to Nevarro for repairs to the Razor Crest, and reunite with Karga and Dune, who have since turned the planet around. While the Mandalorian goes with Karga, Dune, and their Mythrol companion (Horatio Sanz) to destroy the last Imperial base on Nevarro in exchange for said repairs, Grogu is left at a local school, where he uses the Force to steal some cookies from a boy.
This episode also provides a clue as to what the Empire’s plans with Grogu are; while exploring the Imperial base, the Mandalorian and the others stumble upon cloning experiments performed by Imperial scientists, involving Grogu’s blood, some of which has already been transfused to the clones to supposedly give them Force-sensitivity.
In “Chapter 13: The Jedi”, the Mandalorian takes Grogu to former Jedi Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) on Corvus, who communicates with him through the Force, learning his name and that he is a former Jedi youngling who was rescued from the Jedi Temple on Coruscant during the Great Jedi Purge and hidden for his own safety, which is why he suppresses his Force powers. While Ahsoka is reluctant to train Grogu because of his strong attachment to the Mandalorian, she tells the latter to take him to the Jedi Temple on Tython, where Grogu might reach out to another Jedi through the Force.
Grogu is a member of the same alien species as the Star Wars character Yoda. He is 50 years old during the events of The Mandalorian, but still appears to be an infant because of the pace at which that species matures. The species has never been given a proper name because Star Wars creator George Lucas wanted Yoda to maintain a sense of mystery.
As of the end of Season 1 of The Mandalorian, Grogu had not been identified by a proper name, being referred to by other characters as “the child”, “the kid”, or “the baby”. He is the only character to appear in all episodes of the series other than the titular Mandalorian bounty hunter character, “the Mandalorian” (portrayed by Pedro Pascal).
