The Disney+ original series The Mandalorian is a massive hit, and its fans have about a million questions about the series’ breakout star. We’re not entirely sure what the deal with Baby Yoda is, but here’s everything we know so far.
Yoda’s species is extremely mysterious: George Lucas famously never gave it a name, wishing the wizened Jedi Master to remain an enigma in as many ways as possible. One thing we do know, however, is that members of this race are not asexual, as illustrated by Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
That film gave us a few fleeting glimpses of Yaddle, a female member of Yoda’s species who was a member of the Jedi High Council and even assisted in the training of a young Qui-Gon Jinn. While The Mandalorian doesn’t go out of its way to clue us in as to the gender of Baby Yoda, Doctor Pershing, an employee of the Client, reveals the truth in the series’ third episode.
And the little tyke is referred to as “he” several times in episode 4, and Omera even calls him the Mandolorian’s “boy.” So at least one mystery has been solved for sure: Baby Yoda’s a baby boy! Watch the video to learn The Untold Truth Of Baby Yoda!
