Yoda Baby: Cultural Icon

We have to admit that Baby Yoda has stolen all of our hearts. Even if you are not a fan of the series you can see yourself on social media using one of the Baby Yoda memes to communicate a funny joke. Is this big eyed, green creature, with infant claws, cute enormous ears, an adorable walk, that grunts and gurgles, uses Force power, and looks like Yoda, a cultural icon? Yes, yes he is!

This craze over the adorable Yoda baby has caused so many viewers of the Disney+ series, "The Mandalorian" to fall in love. It might even cause a new spike in baby births all over the world (just kidding). But, what is all this excitement about? With the Star Wars trilogy ending on a bittersweet and a conflicting note, many fans are still craving for more from the Star Wars franchise. Yes, the last installment in the movie Star Wars has left many with more questions than answers. Some fans were also satisfied with the last movie. As die hard fans, many are asking if this is truly it. Will there ever, ever, ever be another Star Wars movie?

Who can think about another movie when just about every viewer of the Disney+ series, "The Mandalorian" has fallen in love with this sweet adorable baby. What is his name? He is referred to for now as "The Child". But who is to say that future episodes will not open the doors to christening this little bundle of joy with a real name? And yet there are so many mysteries and questions surrounding the identity of this baby. Where did he come from? Do they know he's force sensitive? Do any of the characters in this series believe in the force? And many more questions with no answers.

The child is not only adorable, he's powerful! In fact, in the first few episodes you can see him using his power. Just watch him lift up those little fingers to force throw and choke his enemies. He's gained the Mandalorian's trust because he saved his life from a killer alien. Who has not adopted this baby? Not only has the Mandalorian become an instant dad, but so have many of us become instant parents ourselves. And now the child has become a cultural icon. All over social media you can find music videos, dances, memes, and soon coming to a store near you, merchandise! Everything from t-shirts, sweaters, mugs, toys etc. will peak the interest of even those who aren't Star Wars fans.

Every time you watch" The Mandalorian" you will here yourself saying, "Awwwww, he's so cute, so adorable", you might be wondering if your loosing it. The truth is your not. The real world is full of adorable babies. And why can't the Star Wars universe have it's own? The last time we saw adorable babies was in "Star Wars III Revenge of the Sith" with the birth of twins Luke and Leia. But even then, they were hidden from their father, Darth Vader. We only experienced a few minutes of cuteness. Not to mention, poor Padme was dying while she was giving birth.

We hope to see a back story about the 50 year old child and his people in the future episodes of the Disney+ series. With Baby Yoda becoming a cultural icon, what will it's future bring to the franchise? I can almost predict more cuteness, for now.

"May the Force be with you...…..always."
