Adorable 'Baby Yoda' GIFs return after Giphy mix-up

  Adorable 'Baby Yoda' GIFs return after Giphy mix-up One of the most relentlessly adorable characters in Star Wars history just got caught up in some copyright confusion. Giphy has restored GIFs of Disney+ series The Mandalorian's stand-out character The Child (nicknamed "baby Yoda" because well, look at him) after "confusion" over whether or not the animations were allowed. The Vulture claimed in a spoiler-laden piece that the GIFs of the cute-as-hell character were taken down for "copyrightThe move will likely prove a relief if you just have to share the little tyke with everyone you know (straight-up: if you've seen the series, you'll probably want to).

It's not surprising that Disney went without merch for The Child (aka baby Yoda) when The Mandalorian premiered, since it would have spoiled one of the streaming show's most adorable surprises. However, the first offerings are... rushed, to put it mildly. The media megacorp has listed its first products themed around the sweet green toddler, and they look like they were produced at a make-your-own-shirt website -- you might have whipped up some yourself with a few minutes in Photoshop.

They're not cheap, either, with prices ranging from $15 for a tumbler to $45 for a baby-Yoda-badged iPhone XS case from Speck. Yes, Disney isn't even offering cases for this year's iPhones at the moment.

Analysis suggests Disney+ doesn't stream 'The Mandalorian' in true HDR

  Analysis suggests Disney+ doesn't stream 'The Mandalorian' in true HDR The Mandalorian has given us Baby Yoda and, by some accounts, made Disney+ worth it. The first live-action Star Wars show, The Mandalorian packs the kind of action and visual splendor that will remind you why you love Star Wars in the first place, and it stands out as truly original content on Disney's new streaming platform. But it may not be living up to its HDR promises. HDTVTest, a well-respected YouTube channel that tests display quality, reports that, in HDR, The Mandalorian's peak brightness caps out at just 200 nits. HDTVTest goes as far as suggesting that it's SDR video repackaged in a 10-bit HDR container.

Mercifully, this isn't the sum total of Disney's The Mandalorian cash-in. CNBC has learned that other, hopefully higher-quality goods are in the pipeline before the holidays, and there will be pre-orders for the inevitable plushies and toys (c'mon, you knew these were coming) in the weeks ahead. Disney's tentpole online show should have gift-worthy merch in the long run, but you may need to hand that special someone an IOU if you'd rather not receive a look of crushing disappointment.

'The Mandalorian' Season 2 to Premiere in Fall 2020, Jon Favreau Says .
"The Mandalorian" dropped its first season finale Friday and just a few hours later, series creator Jon Favreau dropped some big news for fans of Disney+'s live-action "Star Wars" series: The second season will premiere in Fall 2020. "Season 2 of #TheMandalorian coming Fall 2020," Favreau tweeted, revealing that it's gonna be a while until you get to see Baby Yoda again. The tweet also included a picture of a Gamorrean, a species from within the "Star Wars" universe that was not featured in the first season of "The Mandalorian," so maybe he's teasing a Season 2 character here.
