George Lucas’ Picture With Baby Yoda Goes Viral

Star Wars fans felt something good in the Force, and a new photo featuring its creator and a lovable new icon has gone viral. Earlier this week, The Mandalorian showrunner, Jon Favreau, tweeted out a photo of George Lucas holding the Child/Baby Yoda.

Since the photo was posted, it’s gotten high praise from members of the Star Wars community. Joonas Suotamo, (Chewbacca from the newest Star Wars trilogy), gave it a thumbs up.

Other fans had more creative responses.


So far, the photo received more than 558,000 likes — and it’s still on the rise. Somehow, we suspect that the demand for nore Baby Yoda merchandise will still be alive and well when it finally arrives this year.
