After just one episode, Disney is like:
"What... ? O what is that sound?... Oh! it´s the sound of millions of baby Yoda Toys being sold"
Wow no one expected a baby Yoda. Cant wait to see where this goes.

Disney: We will destroy Netflix
Netflix: Nah
Disney:We present baby yoda
Looks like the Mandalorian was a victim of the Separatists occupation since he doesn’t trust droids. Love it

Baby Yoda was literally the last thing I ever expected to see.

I love what they did at the end, wasnt expecting such a good first episode.

Can we all agree that Baby Yoda is the most adorable thing in Star Wars now?
Such a simple but game changing move by having a baby yoda

I genuinely hope Yoda’s whole species is really force sensitive. This show was already interesting, but this makes it 100% way more interesting.
You earned your like when you edited in the clip of Yoda saying "he is too old" right after you'd called it an old baby.

If he doesn't go on the run with the baby Yode I will punch someone
Just watched it, im so hyped to find out what happens next , also yoda babies are cute af!!
Here's my theory : Seeing as there are so little of the 'yoda' species and the ones we do know of are extremely force sensitive, even without training could this baby have some form of force power that influenced the mandalorians rather weird plot twist of them touching tips ? Where as the droid could obviously not be influenced by any form of latent mind force power stuff

The Star Wars future actually has some promise now
Actually we have no idea if Yoda's species reproduce sexually or asexually, so the baby could be Yoda or Yaddle's

Yoda had himself cloned at Geonosis as a contingency plan.

New Yoda is gonna restore the Jedi Order that would be dope
I believe he’s saving “baby yoda” because like the mandalorian it is one of the last ones left of it’s species.
I'm glad Disney decided to make a good StarWars series. The memes from I have spoken have been great

I have just finished watching this for the 2nd time and it's perfect it reminds me of the great TV shows we got on a Saturday afternoon in the 80s , knight rider , A team, etc the mix of practical and cgi is spot on . This has got to be either the beginnings of the first order looking for force babies or could it be big pappy palps looking for force sensitives on the sly

😅 Alexa: play ”don’t let me be misunderstood” ~
So since this takes place after the fall of the empire that must just be one of Yoda's species

When I saw the shot from inside the cradle with the ears out of focus I thought hmm? Mando said I thought he was 50? Then I saw the little hand pull down the blanket and was like yup... they did it. lol

Paul Bujak:
I'm 40, and I'm still pretty much a baby.

This was brilliant because it was Star Wars to the bone. Best thing we’ve gotten from Disney since RO and beautifully fits in with the vibe of ESB and ROTJ.

I like how everything needs an "ending of [movie/episode/game] explained" even when the ending is straight-forward and doesn't need any explaining at all lol
Sam T
Sam T:
this doesn’t make sense... if a “yoda” is still a baby at 50, he would still be a teenager at 900...

This show is already the best thing to come out of Star Wars since it fell under the Disney umbrella.
Jose Rivera
Jose Rivera:
Thank you for this I didn’t know who he was lol
Aunt Vesuvi
Aunt Vesuvi:
"Ma klounkee" translates to "I'll end you"... so, that's likely what the added *maclunkey* refers to. Although it doesn't bother me, I agree it was an unnecessary addition. #ILoveStarWars
I just finished watching it. It was great!

What if it’s a Yoda clone?

3:24 I have no idea y the inserted " he is to old" made me laugh my ass off
Justin Jones

The "He is too old" sound clip just killed me. Hahahaha!!!
Graham Cann
Graham Cann:
Ma Klounkee (Maclunky), as said and translated in the Phantom Menace, means "I'll end you."
No, not Boba Fett.
In such a large system, I don't think the fact we've only seen two of Yoda's species means there are only a few of them.

And, as always, thank you so very much for your video.

The Mandalorian Episode 1 was GREAT, perfect in any way, and I loved the Yoda child!!
Darth Sauna

I'm just gonna call the baby Yoda "YoYo"
I clearly didnt expect that ending and I was freaking out because it made me so happy and sad at the same time. The baby is so cute but it still reminds me on Yoda, which is dead. Very good first episode in my opinion.

Here's my theory. It is Yoda and Yaddle's baby. (And before you all go all HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST YODA BROKE THE CODE!!!! on me, here me out.) In the expanded universe it's explained that the council allowed jedi whose species was endangered to breed to keep their race alive. But they couldn't have any connections to their offspring. (I know, so cruel.) Maybe Yoda and Yaddle were among the last of their kind, and had one baby together that they left with somebody they trusted so they could continue to be jedi. BUT, it's also explained that Yaddle left the high council before the clone wars. Maybe she missed her baby, and knew Yoda was needed in the order more than in a family. So she left to raise her baby by herself. 😢 And we all know Yoda is gone now, but what about Yaddle?. Well, maybe she either died of old age like Yoda, or she died trying to protect her baby. (Idk about you, but the way they found baby Yoda, reminded me of when Kala found Tarzan.)

I like how he's not actually mandalorian. He was just an orphan that was recruited into their ranks I think
Joseph Kamm
Joseph Kamm:
What?!? There was another yoda on the Jedi council? Never noticed.

Some have suggested that the imperial doctor had a patch on his arm from the cloning facility in the prequels. Meaning that baby yods could be a clone baby Yoda.
Kyle Saritelli
Kyle Saritelli:
When the dark rises up, the light rises to meet it. The child came into existence at the same time as Anakin. It's been learned now that Palpatine was the one that used the force to create Anakin, the most powerful of the Dark. It's entirely possible that the Light created the child in mirror of Palpatine using the Dark to create Anakin.
Daemon Blackfyre
Daemon Blackfyre:
Actually 3. You forgot the Grandmaster in Kotor 1. Also it looks like a Green Gizmo from Gremlins. And yes in the comics Yoda's species are all force sensitive.
Chris Jordan
Chris Jordan:
I love it! Especially when they traverse The Plates of Woe!
Electronic Tonic
Electronic Tonic:
I thought yoda's species was extinct, and that he was the last of his kind. No idea where I got that thought, but I've held it for years. What a cliffhanger!
Why do we need the ending explained?! Y’all know everything that we know.
ShadowGamer5 Scorpio
ShadowGamer5 Scorpio:
Baby Yoda is the chosen one? He we born around the time of young Anakin, and Yoda struggled lifting a X-wing.

Yoda's species can live for 700+ years iirc. 50 years is hardly anything.

Anyways loved the video, and the first episode of The Mando was good.
That Boba Fett tease got me freaking out

I honestly thought to myself thats yoda when i saw him in the carage but the bounty hunter said the empire is dead so that got me thinking what time period r they living in, after return of the jedi or way before the phantom menace, ok nvm i get what hes saying now lol
Now I have images of the Mando running with the baby in a backpack

David Helm
David Helm:
Great enthusiasm for the first episode. It was a unique #1 show.
I really like the fact that they showed him getting cut by the door because I think that everyone here has wondered how no one has used those doors as a weapon yet

I just hope IG11 isn’t out of the series... IG88 was my favorite droid and was excited to see an IG and mandalorian team up 😞
I was happy Life Day got mentioned.

If I'm not mistaken, isnt the patch on the "doctors" sleeve a Kamino clone symbol? Wanting baby Yoda alive?????

Although I like the baby Yoda, I think its a bold move to mess around with that in the Star Wars universe..

I’m placing a bet now, Jedi fallen order is going to crossover with the mandalorian series some how, mostly on chapter 2 releasing same day as fallen order but imma see tomorrow.
Been there done that!
Been there done that!:
It was slightly cheesey but it was still cool before the ending, which by the way made me jump out my chair
