    Possibly a clone, but still basically a new character. Cloning Yoda doesn't make the clone the Yoda we know, he would not have had the experiences that the Jedi Master had during his life.

    Intriguing. So the idea would be a great Jedi is attempting what Plagueis did for the Light Side.

    Chosen One vs Sith’ari.

    I was thinking more that it “just happened”, by the will of the force. Kind of like Mary and Jesus.

    You are right @Crusifix, but others are too :)
    The titles are listed in the "New posts" section of the Cantina forum, where my shortcut for the Cantina directly drives me.
    I've read your title in that list, so it was revealed to me, even if I strictly want to keep myself away form the Mando forum....


    Escaped, perhaps.
    Stolen, more probably.


    Yoda specie is supposed to live 900 years.
    A normal human lives 90 years.
    BabyYoda is 50 years.
    --> mathematically that corresponds to a 5 years-old human ; a 5 y.o goes to school and speaks quite fluently. So BabyYoda seems quite retarded according to a strict mathematic comparison between a human and a... erm, a yoda-ian.



    Just a throw here.
    BabyYoda is Force Sensitive, that's clear, and he is quite a Forfce user. So, do you think BabyYoda may be "mindtricking" Mando ?

    Are we sure he isn't around though? I mean, so far the ST has only covered what, a couple of weeks in galactic history? He could have been whisked away. He could have a role to play in IX. We just know nothing at this point, but I have a feeling either him or someone in the show will have a role in IX, seeing as how they seem to have timed the final episode release to come right after the debut of IX.

    Although I will say I am interested in where he came from only in so far as it helps build out the story. Is he a clone? Was he created by the force?

    I like that they are releasing one episode/week but now I'm desperately wanting to binge this entire series.

    In case you missed it, we are trying out a feature that allows certain sections of the Cantina to be invisible to specific users. So if you don't want to risk it, we can "hide" the Mando forum entirely from your view. And when you're ready, we can turn it back on whenever you'd like.

    Thank you @DarthSnow ,
    For my part I do not need to be ... "disconnected"... from the Mando forum. I started to read the spoilers, before starting to see the serie :) so "it's too late for me, my son".

    But - unless I am very ignorant - I was not aware of that feature. I think it would please a lot of persons who want to stay spoiler free, be it from the Mando or from Episode 9. Perhaps you could make it more visible to the casual forumers?...

    In canon, Yaddle didn't die. She left the Jedi council, and possibly the order. Could the reason have been because she was found to have had a child and left the order for that reason?

    Hello.


    In the Mandalorian we are introduced to BabyYoda. He is 50 years old, out of 900 years his specie commonly reaches. So he is now at about 6% of his whole lifetime.

    In TPM, Anakin Skywalker is 9 years old, out of 90 years a normal human generally lives. So Anakin in TPM is about 10% of his whole lifetime.

    Given that comparable relative-age, the differences between them are flagrant.
    -> Anakin lives, speaks, laughs, thinks, makes plans, rides a podracer, and also fears the future. In the same time he doesn't show a lot of Force abilities, even if Qui Gon and Obi Wan willl reveal his midichlorian rate is over 20.000, more that Master Yoda himself.
    -> Baby Yoda doesn't speak at all, and wholly seems very "baby-ish" compared to Anakin. But he truly and conciously masters the Force: make a beast float in the air, heal...



    How can we deal with such different showings of the Force in 2 comparable babies ?
    What lesson about the Force may we learn ?

    It's new, so it's nothing you've missed along the way. And it's something you have to request and we have to apply manually, not something you can do yourself. A little clunky but it gets the job done.

    Definitely could apply to Ep. IX as well... I'll see what we can do about making that info more public. Thanks for the feedback!

    (Sorry for the off-topic everyone. Carry on! :D)

    50 years is still 50 years. 9 years is still 9 years. This is why I think that the b-by is more aware than he is portraying. Physical age can not be tied directly to mental experience.

    With the final episode after TROS release it could be the scenario where Palps needs force sensitives to regain corporeal form. So we see TROS and this is somehow told to us then the final episode of Mandalorian Season 1 ends on a downer with Baby Yoda being whisked away by Palps followers never to be seen again.

    Throw in we dont know when B Y was introduced to the Force. He may have grown during those 50 years being introduced and even taught what the Force was even if the people telling him werent Force sensitive themselves.

    No it doesn't.

    I've long said this and this is sort of an answer to the last question you posed, the Star Wars community would be much more peaceful if we stopped trying to quantify or apply logic to the Force.

    Agreed! It’s entertainment not non-fiction. And it’s entertainment with how many hours of content (movies + tv + video games + written)?

    There are bound to be inconsistencies. As long as they don’t directly violate something significant I think wed be happier as a fan base if we let minor inconsistencies go.

    No, it doesn't. Just like Rey's abilities don't or abilities of any other Force user that have appeared or might appear in the future. Force is a living thing, it changes with circumstances and it's own will. What was applicable for Anakin isn't applicable to Rey or Baby Yoda or anyone else. In that moment of time, Anakin was expression of Force's will. Time goes by and other Force users come and go.

    Look at it this way. At one point in time Carl Lewis was undisputed world champion on 100m track. The appearance of other athletes do not change the fact that he is the legend. Usain Bolt did not diminish his accomplishments.

    A prime Yoda would destroy a prime Anakin, yet Yoda is not the chosen one. It's why Yoda took on the Emperor in the first place. However, that never changed the fact that Anakin was the chosen one. What @LadyMusashi said.

    I don’t think it diminishes Anakin at all. As it’s been stated the force and force abilities are manifested differently from being to being. Even twins manifest it differently as can be seen with Luke and Leia’s differing developmental stages and abilities.

    I also think there might be a “surprise” moment when babyYoda does verbally communicate. I think for now he/she is just playing it quiet to maybe observe more of the Mandalorian’s intentions and character as their journey together goes on. Similar to how Yoda played dumb and amped up his eccentricities when he first met Luke to feel him out a bit.

    Actually I've been bracing myself in case the Mando decides to turn Babyoda in for the beskar. If he does, I bet he'll have a change of heart/learn something new and spend a lot of time in the future trying to get the little tyke back. BUT THEY BETTER NOT MAKE HIM INTO LAB RAT BABYODA. Even if it makes sense for the story. That cuteness must not be betrayed! ;)
