Everything We Know About Baby Yoda's Species

  • Published on Nov 21, 2019
  • Now that Disney+'s Mandalorian has introduced a mysterious new character that bears more than a passing resemblance to the Jedi master Yoda, it got us thinking: What's up with this species of pint-sized, pointy-eared aliens? What makes them so special, and what have we learned about them over the years?
    In a Moviefone interview between George Lucas and Hayden Christensen where they answered fan questions, Lucas was asked about Yoda's species and his off-screen history.
    As the years went on and the Expanded Universe was created, Lucas still didn't want anyone to give Yoda any kind of backstory. He eventually added another character of Yoda's species to The Phantom Menace more on her in a bit and let creators in the Expanded Universe invent a couple more of the same species. But when Lucas sold Star Wars to Disney, everything in the Expanded Universe was considered non-canon, leaving only three Yoda-like characters in the Star Wars universe.
    While there have been several of Yoda's species, including those from the Extended Universe and the Knights of the Old Republic video game, at this point in time, there are only three in the official Star Wars canon: Yoda, Yaddle, and this new "Child" character colloquially known to fans as "Baby Yoda." Yoda, of course, is the most visible of his species, appearing in six films, as well as in the animated shows Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

    1 that yoda has probably existed for a few million years.. .watching a video about baby yoda actually made me feel sad because the bounty hunter will probably never see him get out of body form.....

    Baby Yoda? Why couldn't they give it a different name? I'm thinking that's actually yoda as a baby.

  • I'm thinking about a good username . . .

    Right in time for Christmas toys....

    That's all it is.

    I have some theories here: Yoda and Yaddle are the only names we know for that species. Maybe this one will be a hybrid name, like Yuddle or Yodle, possibly the offspring of the two.

    The logical conclusion is that Yodle will become a Mandalorian.

    It's not the teeth that gives away what diet a species eat, it's the eyes. Yoda is definitely a predator species, like humans

    No, looper... you don't get to act like this is even remotely new info just because it's relevant to a show and you think you can capitalize on the popularity of it. I only watched long enough to type this, you're garbage.

    Hold up! If baby Yoda was 50 around the time of little anakin skywalker and 900 when he died after training luke. Doesn't quite add up. That ain't no 800 years passed.

    Would the Yoda species have reincarnated because video shows that baby Yoda appeared 5 years after Yoda died. And could they be the first jedi nights I know this has a lot of holes but maybe just maybe it's true
