The Mandalorian Is Quite Possibly the Best New Star Wars Property

  The Mandalorian Is Quite Possibly the Best New Star Wars Property There is a feeling while watching a Star Wars property that may never go away—at least, I hope it doesn’t—and The Mandalorian's first episode gave me that feeling and so much more. Set in a world after the fall of the Empire but before the current movies, the show begins with the titular Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) fulfilling his bounty and going to get his next assignment (from Carl Weathers), and when he does not like the price, he’s offered something far greater. The problem is that it’s very clearly for someone who still wants the Empire to rise once more, as he’s surrounded by stormtroopers—and it’s Werner Herzog.

You love Baby Yoda unconditionally. Baby Yoda is humanity’s soulmate. Baby Yoda can unite us all. Baby Yoda may be the answer. I’m afraid that if we cannot agree, as a species, on the magnificent oeuvre that is Baby Yoda , the problems of the 21st century may be beyond our ability to negotiate.

What does this mean for Baby Yoda ? If his species lives to age 900 on average, then we could estimate that he’d reach sexual maturity anywhere between 10 “It can take decades,” Friedberg says of the Jedi equivalent of toilet training. “But with a life expectancy of 900 or more, no one is in a rush.”

As soon as you see it, you understand and you know.

It is true on a spiritual level. On every level.

You find yourself wondering how anything in the past could have compared to the overwhelm of it. Your life is different now.

Here is the truth: You have never in your many years seen anything more adorable than Baby Yoda. The wispy little hairs covering his tiny forehead. The huge, expressive eyes. The wee mouth. The wide, pointed ears. Never has a wrinkled green alien looked more soft and cuddly. And he doesn’t just have his widdle fingers and teeny snoot going for him.

Disney+'s Top Show Just Beat Out "Stranger Things" For Most Streamed Series Ever

  Disney+'s Top Show Just Beat Out Who doesn't love Baby Yoda?While Netflix has seen a decrease in numbers even before Disney+ was launched, their original content shows like Stranger Things, swooped in and saved their quarterly reports. But their originals might not be enough anymore.

10 Baby Yoda is the Last of His Species. It was always clear that whatever unnamed species the original Yoda originated from was not a species Okay, so now that both Yoda and Yaddle have been mentioned there are two canon characters of the same species who could, in the Star Wars universe

Then came Amy Sedaris. Her grumpy mechanic character, Peli Motto, harried and playing cards with her pit droids, comes across Baby Yoda when the little I can ’ t really think of anything that is Baby Yoda ’s equal when it comes to instant meme-ability. Never before have screenshots been taken so

The littlest character in The Mandalorian, a new show on the Disney+ streaming platform that launched last week, is an infant of the same species as Yoda, the wise Jedi master. Is it actually a baby? I mean, the species ages slowly, and it is 50 years old. Is it actually Yoda? Well, no, but until more details become available, the Internet has settled the matter of its nickname. A warning if you have not laid eyes upon this creature: it will make you feel things.

You want to protect Baby Yoda like you protect your own flesh and blood. You love Baby Yoda unconditionally. Baby Yoda is humanity’s soulmate. Baby Yoda can unite us all. Baby Yoda may be the answer.

“It made you cry when you saw it,” actor Werner Herzog told Variety, describing his first impression.

Tecumseh native Miss Universe Canada to champion pot at world competition

  Tecumseh native Miss Universe Canada to champion pot at world competition Beauty pageants and pot promotion will share the same glamorous spotlight this December when Tecumseh native Alyssa Boston represents the country as Miss Universe Canada with a pro cannabis twist. The 24-year-old beauty queen told the Star she plans to make the case for global marijuana legalization during the Miss Universe competition Dec. 8 in Atlanta, Ga. Her approach to that pot pitch is still a secret, but she admitted television viewers would be seeing green during her time on stage. “It’s a little different for a beauty queen to talk about cannabis,” Boston said. “It’s something that we’re very proud of here in Canada.

Baby Yoda isn' t the only pint-sized science fiction creature that the internet's meme culture has been totally obsessed with as of late. It was a natural fit, then , to pair the furry little friend with the internet's new favorite baby , Baby Yoda . Just one of the many examples of this new adorable internet duo

If Yoda had gone with Obi-Wan to Mustafar, the entire plotline of the saga would have changed. The combined powers of these two Jedi Masters would They could defeat the last Sith Lord, and cripple the Empire before it even had the chance to take its first step. Perhaps they could even convince the

Baby Yoda represents nostalgia and hope. Hope not just for the Star Wars franchise, set a long time ago in a movie studio far, far away, but for the here and the now. For the future itself. For our future.

This character is the pièce de resistance of modern animatronics. Disney, those bastards, have taken the genre to its absolute limit. They have achieved peak cute, to such an effect, I fear, that nothing will ever rival it.

I’m afraid that if we cannot agree, as a species, on the magnificent oeuvre that is Baby Yoda, the problems of the 21st century may be beyond our ability to negotiate. In innumerable ways, a new hope rests on miniature verdant shoulders.

The heretofore most charming extraterrestrials imagined by humankind never tugged at the heartstrings like this. Even androids BB-8 and R2-D2, from Baby Yoda’s own universe, don’t hold a candle to him.

Baby Yoda is out-trending Democratic presidential candidates

  Baby Yoda is out-trending Democratic presidential candidates The data is with him.

Yoda 's species is still largely a mystery, but from what information we've been given his people can live very long lives. As far as his strength in The Force goes, we've seen that it can grant unnaturally long life. The Emperor for example was far older than his appearance during the events of the prequel

If Yoda knew they were alive, he wouldn' t have told Luke that he was the last Jedi. And I presume that he is (a) not lying to Luke and (b) is Force-sensitive enough to know if these characters were still alive. I assume that Dave Filoni would not write an ending to a series that took a large amount of the

E.T. may have made you cry but did it ever induce a deep desire to procreate? Phone home all you like, but it absolutely did not. Stitch, from Lilo + Stitch, was more like a terrorizing little brother. The mogwai from Gremlins? Some would argue those were cute. I would argue they were never pleasant enough to distract from being downright terrifying. Tribbles, from Star Trek? Sure. I’ll give you tribbles. Little balls of fluff. Little balls of fluff that will rapidly and without mercy choke you alive. Baby Yoda would never do that.

Sometimes it just feels like everything is getting worse, you know? Our politics are polarized. Our nations divided. Democracy is flailing in a visceral or an esoteric way, depending on your location. Climate change is looming. The big picture looks dark. The day-to-day, if you are a Canadian, is getting darker too. Literally. It’s November. November sucks.

Whether you are preoccupied by pending global catastrophe or feeling down as the shorter, colder days set in, a tiny sage-tinted saviour is here for you, raising his very short arm, squeezing his enormous eyelids, twiddling his little digits to the heavens and summoning the force.

Baby Yoda Now Has the “Dear Theodosia” Parody Theme Song He Deserves

  Baby Yoda Now Has the “Dear Theodosia” Parody Theme Song He Deserves There is a way one goes about talking about baby Yoda and, for the most part, it consists of softly singing "Dear Theodosia" to yourself about this little baby. The Ringer’s Isaac Lee and Jason Gallagher, a.k.a. Ice2Ice, just capitalized on what we all were feeling and made a video with new lyrics for the Hamilton song that apply exclusively to our favorite green baby.

Yoda : [Looking away from Luke] I cannot teach him. The boy has no patience. Of course, the obvious out- universe reason would be George Lucas, but a in- universe would be appreciated. Then he surely would have been trained by many Jedi before being apprenticed to Qui-Gon, as Sebastian

This toddling hero is for some the resurgence of childhood imagination, for others a delightful break from reality, for all a symbol of exactly how devastatingly lovable an non-human character can be when you throw immeasurable money, technology and data research at it. Each episode of The Mandalorian reportedly cost $15 million to make. More than 10 million people signed up for Disney+ on day one, according to the company. We can over-analyze the monetary angle to the moon.

But you know what? I don’t care to what degree Baby Yoda was birthed to draw the masses to a new subscription service in the dying days of the year of our lord 2019. I don’t care what products he will be used to sell me, what New Coke variant he will guzzle, what expensive plush robot he will serve to inspire.

If the result of our consumerist, globalized age is that billions of people have the opportunity, at least via gif, to unite over a sweet mossy babe? If somehow Baby Yoda is the evidence that we can all come together over something, even if it isn’t real, and even if it isn’t human? That works for me. May the force be with us.

Scarlett Johansson on ‘SNL’: 3 Sketches You Have to See .
Look, sometimes an entire episode is a big swing and a miss. It happens. It’s somewhat surprising that it happened while Scarlett Johansson hosted, because her previous five hosting gigs have yielded consistently solid episodes. But that’s the nature of the Saturday Night Live beast: Some weeks everything just sorta sits there, comic-adjacent but never really coming into focus. Let’s put it this way: you know it’s not the show’s week when even Bowen Yang’s Chen Baio fails to truly land.It’s tempting to invent reasons why this episode dragged for most of the evening.
