As with any minor wrinkle in the Star Wars universe, the fresh Baby Yoda content sparked a flurry of fan theories: is Lucas returning to write or direct an episode for The Mandalorian's sophomore season?

The toys were delayed because Disney attempted to keep the Baby Yoda reveal under wraps, causing a production delay.

As of Friday morning, Favreau's photographic gem had amassed more than 500,000 likes on Twitter. Need something to tide you over until then?

Last month, Favreau promised that season 2 would also premiere later this year on Disney+.

The Laureus World Sports Awards , which recognise sporting achievement during 2019, are the premier honours on the global sporting calendar.

Confirming the news at a conference in Orlando, Florida, Build-A-Bear CEO Sharon Price John said: "I'm excited to share we will be one of the first companies to provide the digital and internet phenomenon who is trending higher than all the presidential candidates combined".

But except for a smattering of mugs, t-shirts and other easy-to-produce tchotchkes, there was a dearth of Baby Yoda products available. But pre-orders have been strong for the toy, which comes in various styles.

What's more interesting is that Target is calling it The Child, instead of what everyone on the planet has been calling it: Baby Yoda. What do you think they talked about?

Is Baby Yoda the real Yoda?

The US$25 toy is now relisted as "The Baby Child", "baby alien plush", "star plushie", "alien toy", "star battle", "galaxy wars" and "yodoll". "He stole our hearts and now I want him to steal our keyboard space".
