    Exactly!! Aand it feels like a big chunk of those people doesn't really know what a clone is.. like the theories that it's Palpatine's clone in IX..
    It doesn't make any sense! His clone wouldn't have his memories nor personality, maybe it could just have some of his talents.. It would just basically be his younger twin brother :D And because he would definitely have pretty different life experiences from the orginal, he would grow up to have a hugely different personality - he could become a pretty sweet and dumb guy for all we know!!

    A yodaling growing up to be a successful bar owner near the political center of the galaxy would be fascinating, TBH. Seriously. lol

    I agree with you. I don't think he is a clone, just a rare member of Yoda's species. They probably want to study his DNA or something.

    I feel that the baby Yoda is meant to be the head of the emerging Jedi order of the new generation. That each age of Jedi is to have such a Yoda species figurehead over the order. Yoda was about one-thousand years in age, and in the prequels it's stated that the Sith had been extinct for that amount of time. So Yoda was relative to that age of time. When the time came for that old age to change, the baby Yoda in this series was born in preparation of the coming proverbial change of the guard. This is about the same time as Anakin emerging to bring about the coming change.

    The baby Yoda is contained in an egg, and there is egg symbolism even in the second episode. This egg with the baby Yoda represents the egg of the new age and order of the Jedi. The Jawa eating from the egg represents the nourishment the galaxy receives from the baby Yoda and the new Jedi order to emerge by the hand of Rey, as the old order was swept away by the hand of Anakin.

    Someone (Snoke, perhaps Sidious) is wanting to destroy the baby Yoda and so destroy the re-emergence of the Jedi order. Others want the baby perhaps to study and even clone. But the baby is a genuine example of the species. This is why they're having the Mandalorian dovetail into Episode IX by way of time of release since Episode IX will surely be the beginning of the new Jedi age as represented in Rey who is the next generation being handed off the lightsaber by Luke.

    So then as Rey emerges from the transitional period between orders, the egg and the baby Yoda will be arriving to her and everything will be in place for the next era of the Jedi order. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a Mandalorian cameo in IX with the baby Yoda, or, a cameo of Rey in the Mandalorian season finale.

    You have a point, there seems to be a Yoda Grand Jedi Master in every age.

    Master Vandar was during the Old Republic:

    E809E129-752A-4F9E-9F6B-5E2C3A4711AA.jpeg

    He was head of the Jedi Council on Dantooine. It was he that helped decide to wipe Darth Revan’s memory and train him as a Jedi. Later this led Revan to prefer the Jedi Way despite his restored memory and he became Saviour of the Galaxy, destroying the Starforge (endless ship and army foundry for the Sith) and became Jedi Prodigal.

    This species, Yoda’s, which I call Eonians, because they live so long, tends to become Jedi and have a strong connection to the Force. It makes me wonder if they were one of earlier species to learn the ways of the Force, The Jed’aii. Much like how one of strongest dark side race was the actual Sith Race:

    Sith Warrior

    2C6706B4-ABAB-4DF5-B24E-31671B572C6E.jpeg

    So then the Light Side is strong in the Eonians (Yoda Race) and Dark Side in the Sith (Red Skin Race).

    Colors of Christmas lol :D

    You are forgetting some things. Like the very nice protective carriage "The Child" is in, the clothing he/she is wearing, the ability "TC" has to feed himself/herself when no one is around to feed regular way. the way it knew how to use the Force to lift the creature battling The Mandolorian. Where are the parents? This child was not grabbed by frantic parents to run from danger the way Mando was by his parents. This child was bundled up, placed in a very nice covered vehicle. This is no typical street child. I'd say you would never ever find a Yoda type entity on the streets. Too rare. There are lots of story holes to be filled. I'm wondering how "they'll" fill in the story. That's why I'll keep coming back.

    How does the child get from the point of being placed in a nice infant's carriage and being sold off to the highest bidder? Oops, sorry. Not a slave market. But, then again....

    That is the mystery we all are having to wait to find out. Hopefully we will have an idea by the end of Season One and don’t have to eait tell Season 2, 3, 4, or 5!

    I don't think applying pure math (50/900) can give us an indication of Babyoda's level of maturity, as a 5-6 year old human.

    IG-11 said nicely: Species age differently.

    And that's true here on Earth. A dog's lifespan is 12 years. A common misconception is that 1 dog year = 7 human years. This misconception is based in pure math. We can see that most dogs by the age of 1 have the size very close to what their full adult size will be. Most vets would tell you that the first dog year would be equivalent to 15 human years. That is to say, the dog is teenager at age 1, and an adult at age 2. In vet's age tables, you will see that a dog will be senior citizen by age 11.

    A chicken's life span is 3-5 years. Let's take 4. That's 1,460 days. IF their maturity cycle were proportional to that of a human, they would walk when they reach 1% of their lifespan. Meaning 14 days. However, a baby chick only takes 2 or 3 days to start walking. That is to say, they only need to reach 0.14% of their lifespan.

    If I were to force a pattern, I would say that the higher the lifespan, the more percentage of its time would be required to mature in their early years. That is to say, I believe Babyoda would be a toddler at age 50.

    The tricky part is that his/her next 50 years should represent a much higher rate of maturity. Why? In TESB, Yoda said: "For 800 years I have trained Jedi. My own counsel I will keep on who is to be trained". He died at age 900, meaning that by age 100, he was already a Jedi capable of training others. Again, species age differently.

    I think one of the mods need to alter this title some as the title itself is a spoiler to our friend across the pond who have been unable to see it yet and may be trying to stay spoiler free

    Unfortunately that info ( BABY YODA) is all over the Internet thanks to official Disney Social Media so in this way me instance the Mandalorian Spoiler policy had to be lifted.
    However for any up coming Mandalorian plot point please don’t post on Profile Posts & please be mindful of how you label you threads in the Mandalorian Forum.
    Thank You.

    Absolutely true. If you follow any SW social media account, you would have seen a picture of it within the first 24-48 hours of Chapter 1 being available. Even when entering YouTube main's page, I would see suggestions of chapter reviews, Easter eggs, All-you-have-missed videos of chapter 1 & 2, and most SW YouTubers deliberately chose to place a thumbnail image of the main spoiler and/or name the little creature.

    I was disappointed on how this was managed, as some people (like me) subscribed to Disney plus after a week. This could have been prevented or minimized with a prevention campaign, similar to the one used by Marvel, where most of the cast used their social media accounts with the message: "Don't spoil the Endgame!". I hope the SW/Lucasfilm learned their lesson here.

    I know Disney wants to use The Mandalorian to boost their new streaming service, but if it wasn't going to be available to everyone at the same time, why not release The Mandalorian on Hulu in those countries or make some other arrangement. I have to think they are just angering some of those people and they will just turn to watching it by other means.

    Or they could have done what Amazon.com does, you can subscribe to CBS All Access or PBS Masterpiece Stream theough Amazon; this then would allow all countries with Amazon Prime to access Disney+ legally through Amazon as interface or gateway.
