Baby Yoda is one of the most elusive and cutest beings in the Star Wars universe. Where did it originally come from? Why does everyone want it desperately? Before Disney+ launched, The Mandalorian appeared to be a window into the Star Wars criminal underworld.
The series reveals that in the first few episodes that a Mandalorian is a bounty hunter. He is apart from being on a hunt is also protecting a baby that may be the most important beings in the universe.
Baby Yoda already in the first episode makes fans going wild with his role in the series. Most of them have been left asking questions that Star Wars can’t think of explaining back to the audience. The Mandalorian is protecting an unnamed infant that is the same species as Yoda. In the series, nobody yet knows the origin of the baby Yoda species, but yet the audience already intrigued with the tiny being character.
Where did baby Yoda come from? What’s the theory behind baby Yoda and the universe at large? In today’s review, I am going to break down the theories behind Baby Yoda and its origin.
Mandalorian as a Father Figure
If you are new to the Mandalorian series, a Mandalorian called Mando received a job offer to return a 50-year-old alien which turns out to be a baby Yoda to a man credited only as “The Client”. The Client looks like a dictator an imperial. He wears an Empire’s sigil. Stormtroopers are protecting him. We can conclude that his intentions towards Baby Yoda looks evil and has some evil malpractices behind it. This is because he paid the bounty to bring the baby Yoda dead or alive.
This brings us to the question of why would he want the baby Yoda so badly? There are only three canon appearances of this kind of creature: Yoda himself, a character named Yaddle, who was an extra in The Phantom Menace, and the baby from The Mandalorian known only as of the Child.
Besides their physical similarity from the two species, the audience concerns the two of them because Star Wars have never explained it. The second episode of The Mandalorian reveals that the Child is actually Force-sensitive. He is lifting a large alien off the ground with a wave of its little hand. This somehow concludes that maybe all the species could be force sensitive at birth. This gives intel on The Client’s motive.
