    Fuck this Minion-ass shit, I'm so tired of sequels needing to retread the things you remember from the originals, and equally tired of everything becoming cutesy and toyetic; Baby Yoda is going to have a negative influence on Hollywood for decades, I fear.

    There's nothing inherently fucking supernatural about the marshmallows. And while animated marshmallows acting like gremlins is amusing in a sensible chuckle kind of way, the first official footage released in over a year going straight for a "Hey, you remember this thing from the first movie? Here it is again!" beat doesn't fill me with confidence.

    I think the thing it wanted you to remember wasn’t stay puft (that did stray a little too gremlins for my taste) but Dana’s kitchen. This scene should have been a little more drawn out to match that, but overall that’s where it put my memory with the musical cues etc. Overall though, it’s kind of exactly where a film so obviously with its roots in the original would go (shandor, spores moulds and fungus... it’s a sequel, no point pretending it doesn’t have some stakes in nostalgia.)

    This.

    Possibly. After the debut of the original Yoda, there was not a breath between endless cutesy fantasy characters (usually short in stature) popping up in endless movies and cartoons of the 80s, other George Lucas productions, included.

    Most of America's going to be back to behaving pretty normally by autumn of 2021.
