George Lucas Just Met Baby Yoda And Cradled Him Gently In His Arms To The Utter Delight Of Fans

Trending

If you've been anywhere near the internet the past couple months you've no doubt spent countless minutes, hours, days fawning over the biggest star to hit the airwaves since the dawn of television.

He's tiny, he's green, he's so cute you truly cannot deal.


That's right: The Child, aka Baby Yoda, the star (okay, maybe not technically but CERTAINLY in practice) of writer/director/producer Jon Favreau's Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian.

As of this writing, "baby yoda memes" returns more than 39 million Google results, so it's safe to say nobody has ever had more people screaming:

Which is why, when Star Wars creator George Lucas and Baby Yoda finally met the other day, the entire internet lost its collective mind. Please sit down, because the cuteness might be too much to handle.

It all began when Favreau tweeted out a photo of the iconic filmmaking wizard cradling the sweet little fuzzy dude like, well, a baby on The Mandalorian set, and good Lord almighty it's enough to make you forget every problem that has ever happened in the entire history of human existence and any that may arise in the future for the rest of time.

Can you even‽‽

Honestly, the only way this could be better is if Lucas were feeding the big BY his beloved chiccy nuggies and choccy milk.

Anyway, Favreau's immediately-viral tweet had no caption, because a picture this pure surpasses all words, of course.

But the internet sure had plenty to say, because frankly, they're obsessed.












What a blessing to the timeline, indeed.

If you, too, have fallen in love with Baby Yoda, there's a fun story about how Baby Yoda would've been just a CGI mirage if iconic filmmaker (and The Mandalorian costar) Werner Herzog hadn't scolded everyone for even thinking about it.

Thank God for those who speak truth to power.

Liberty! Unity! Chiccy Nuggies!
