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.
