    It's not Yoda. It's his species but not the same individual. At least based on the time period in which Mandalorian takes place. Unless there's convoluted time travel paradoxes (aka "timey wimey" and other toddler terminology) involved.

    But there is a canonical precedent - Yoda herself. Everyone assumes Yoda is a male of mammalian formation, yes? Why is that? Yoda is an alien, be creative all the way. This is sci-fi, ostensibly... Why must Yoda be pandering to stereotype males? Yoda could be a chain smoker and ended up with that cough and voice - pardon using a stereotype to appease those who dictate genders only have one set amount of mannerisms and nothing more complex... sheesh. Nope, people based gender solely on one attribute - oops. Yoda can do everything. Yoda is godlike. That's why Yoda was used in small doses and is a secondary character at most. Is Baby YodaSpeciesIndividual going to blink or wiggle nose and season one ends with every plot problem resolved?

    7-figures is only "millions" and how Disney made it to the (4x10-digit)+ figure after six years. The new movies and shows, even with the one-off hiccup, still have a larger net return. It's not going to fail. But anyone who thinks movies are made by nerds, and there is at least one article I read that claims the asinine and way-too-easily debunked assertion... but I digress.

    Today is officially the last day of grad school! Yay! And the baby is now crawling. (Amazing how quickly that happens.) And then Star Wars and the holidays. Then I've got a job search. Then after I find something I figure I'll be really be busy. :p

    Can't go wrong with blaming bleeding heart liberal SJWs.
    He could be a clone of Yoda.
    There is an established female from Yoda's species, Yaddle.

    Neither is Rey.

    Your posts are incredibly repetitious, illogical, narrowminded and tedious. They make these conversations less enjoyable and less informative for everyone.

    Baby Yoda follows in the grand Star Wars tradition of softening/infantilizing archtypes we've seen done repeatedly before in the franchise. Wookee to ewoks to porgs, Teen Luke to 8 year old Anakin, R2D2 to BB8, Han Solo to Special Edition Han Solo to Poe Dameron, Boba Fett to Mando, Wise Old Yoda to Younger Yoda to Baby Yoda. The general direction of the franchise has been repeatedly towards younger, cuter, smaller, more cuddly. This of course goes hand in hand with Jedi powers becoming more and more indistinguishable from superhero abilities and Death Star analogues becoming more and more powerful over time.

    Except... he would have died at the start of the battle - he was a hillybilly put in a military fighter with no training. He would have never got to make the shot...

    I have heard every single one of these points spoken in absolute sincerity by people who somehow made it to adulthood with those viewpoints.

    So you are of the opinion that Luke is a liar when he repeatedly states he's a pilot over the course of the film and never flew a T16 before joining the rebellion as he claimed.
