Bit Boomer Baby Yoda

The Child, affectionately known as “Baby Yoda” by fans, is a character from the Star Wars Disney+ original television series The Mandalorian. He is of the same species as the Jedi Master Yoda, and therefore shares his characteristic physical features: large eyes, small mouth, and pointy ears. Unlike Yoda, however, he is still an infant. The Child was born approximately fifty years before the events of the first Star Wars film and thus would be around 87 years old by the time of The Rise of Skywalker.

The Child first appears in the premiere episode of The Mandalorian, “Chapter 1: The Mandalorian”. He is being sought by the Imperial Remnant, led by Moff Gideon, for unknown reasons. The Mandalorian, a bounty hunter, is hired by a client to find and bring the Child to him. After a long and arduous journey, the Mandalorian finally manages to track down the Child on the planet Sorgan. However, the Imperials attack the Mandalorian’s ship, forcing him to crash land on the planet. The Mandalorian is able to escape with the Child, but not before the Imperials destroy his ship.

The Mandalorian is then forced to take the Child to a safe haven, where he meets a creature known as the Client. The Client reveals that he is actually a member of the Jedi Order, and that the Child is Force-sensitive. He hiresthe Mandalorian to take the Child to the planet Tatooine, where he can be trained in the ways of the Force by the Jedi Master Luke Skywalker.

The Mandalorian and the Child eventually make their way to Tatooine, where they are met by Luke Skywalker. Luke is initially skeptical of the Mandalorian, but he agrees to train the Child in the ways of the Force after sensing the strength of the Child’s connection to the Force. The two quickly develop a strong bond, and the Mandalorian comes to view the Child as his own.

The Mandalorian and the Child continue to live on Tatooine for some time, until the Imperials finally locate them. The Mandalorian is able to defeat the Imperials and protect the Child, but not before the Client is killed. With the Client’s death, the Mandalorian is now responsible for the Child’s safety.

The Mandalorian and the Child eventually leave Tatooine and make their way to the planet Nevarro. There, the Mandalorian is able to find a new ship and finally gives the Child a proper name: Grogu. The two then set off into the galaxy, on a new adventure.
