So is this set way in the past or is that just a different Yoda? I haven't had the chance to watch it yet.

It happens after Episode VI, Return of the Jedi

It has not been established if "baby Yoda" is related to Yoda at all. In the prequels, there's a female of Yoda's species in the Jedi council, I don't remember seeing her, but she's supposed to be there. Yoda's species is unknown (or they never gave it a name)

Now, I have two theories, One: it's just another character from the same species as Yoda.

Two: he's a clone, there are clones in Star Wars. Where did they get Yoda's "DNA"? who knows. But remember, Star Wars is NOT science fiction, it's fantasy.

I think the show is great. I'm loving it.

I made this, or, I cropped it. But I don't have a smartphone to put it on as a background image.

It was Boba Fett, but I basically just made it greyscale and modified a tiny bit.

Then don't. Mooch off of someone else's.

My parents are mooching off my Prime Video account, I'm mooching off their Netflix account, and we are all mooching off my brothers Disney+ account. Thays three households paying an average of like twelve bucks a month for three streaming services.

I’ve heard that Verizon customers get a year of Disney+ for free.

But I’m still not signing up.

Of course Disney has no problem killing the baby's mother.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

I don’t love this show. But I seem to have naive forever hope that somewhere in the Star Wars universe there is a good story to be told that doesn’t devolve into cutesy pandering and character cliches.

Is this story actually going anywhere?

It seems to be exploring the past of the Mandalorian and the Mandalorians so far. More explanation on the child depends on if they intend to violate the law that Yodas species stays a secret.

WTF are you talking about?

Ok, it's true, Yoda's species has never been named. mentioned, stablished, we don't know it. But "law" that it is a "secret"?. I disagree with that, but whatever.

I mentioned my theories in this thread. The child is either a clone of Yoda, or just from the same species. It doesn't really matter, eventually they'll reveal where he came from, and there will be a great disturbance in the fandom, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and would never shut up about it.

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Stop focusing on the negative and commit.

So why does Jango Fett appear without his helmet in Attack of the Clones, despite it being rigidly against Mandolorian religion?

it's a stick fiddling movie, they did it to show the audience how all those clones that were showed to Obi Wan looked the same as Jango Fett. Maybe. It doesn't matter.

all people do that, some people are more strict than others when it comes to traditions and stuff like that

one thing that star wars has a lot is rogues, some people just do whatever they want

By the way, in rebels, Sabine Wren is without her helmet most of the time. And when they went to Mandalore, there were other mandalorians without helmets. YES, Rebels is part of the current canon.

and finally, again, it's star wars, a fantasy movie, it doesn't matter
