Forget Mark Hamill, and Daisy Ridley, and John Boyega. There is only one Star Wars character that nobody can stop talking about at the moment, and it’s Baby Yoda.
The little bluey-green fella has commanded the internet’s attention ever since his arrival as “The Child” on The Mandalorian, streaming on Disney+ since Nov. 12 — and his viral momentum doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon.
A recent case in point: this Reddit post about Baby Yoda’s first word, which went viral in the r/ShowerThoughts subreddit.
Although we haven’t yet got a first word out of Baby Yoda in the series, it makes you think, doesn’t it?
It’s worth noting that the idea actually first appeared on the r/Jokes subreddit, shortly before it appeared in r/ShowerThoughts.
But it wasn’t until that second post that it went really viral (at the time of writing it has around 95,000 upvotes).
Baby Yoda’s star clearly isn’t finished peaking just yet.
