Where did Baby Yoda come from?

Last November, the first episode of The Mandalorian was released on the Disney+ streaming service. This is a Star Wars spin-off set five years after the final defeat of the Empire in Return of the Jedi.

The series tells about the adventures of a silent bounty hunter. He is instructed to find and capture a 50-year-old foreigner, dead or alive. The customers do not give a more accurate description. At the end of the episode, it is revealed that the target was actually an alien infant – known as “the Child” – of an unnamed race, to which Master Yoda belonged. Its representatives live long and age slowly. For instance, when Yoda died, he was over 900 years old. The audience immediately called the new character Baby Yoda.

After the second episode's premiere, social media platforms were flooded with posts with GIFs and images of little Yoda. Many people wanted to adopt him immediately!
