Spoilers from the first episode of The Mandalorian incoming!

The Apple TV+ streaming service premiered on November 1, with a relatively modest slate of content, including original series such as "The Morning Show", starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, the space drama "For All Mankind", the weird fantasy "See", and more.

Who Is Baby Yoda?

Though at times the series plays a little too hard for corny one-offs, like the sputtering, alternate vehicle offered to The Mandalorian (or it's eventual demise), where Favreau nails his effort is in creating a character who is exactly what Star Wars fans are likely looking for.

Even before Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012, Star Wars has been trying to swap the silver screen for the small screen for quite some time.

Nike calls off pilot program with Amazon ending direct sales
Nike, which generated $36 billion in revenue past year , sells its products through a large, global network of retailers. The company has also said it expects that online sales of its products will eventually surpass those sold in stores.

That doesn't tell us what it means though. Yoda was a powerful force user who was able to sustain his life over centuries, so it's safe to assume that his species ages at a much slower rate than humans.

If you remember from the prequel trilogy, the Jedi Order is not very fond of its members engaging in romantic relationships, hence Anakin's secret marriage to Padmé Amidala. "The shadow of greed, that is".

With practical effects preferred over computer-generated ones - one alien being who helps out The Mandalorian is refreshingly old-school, with a latex mouthpiece that just moves up and down instead of enunciating every syllable - and a framework built around a classic story, the first episode of The Mandalorian is a nostalgic blast that's thrilling, fun, and respectful of its roots, which we can't say about all things Star Wars these days.

Back in 2016, Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition came to London's O2 and it featured the original concept art for Yoda. One relates to the Mandalorian people, and the other to the Client's bounty - the latter of which will make Star Wars fans' jaws drop.

Set in a world after the fall of the Empire but before the current movies, the show begins with the titular Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) fulfilling his bounty and going to get his next assignment (from Carl Weathers), and when he does not like the price, he's offered something far greater. Greef cheats "Mando" (a nickname I choose to adopt) a bit on his fee by using Imperial credits, but proceeds to point him to a major, albeit off-book, potential payday, by chasing someone down for Werner Herzog's enigmatic character. It's not yet clear if the infant or child is related to Yoda or not.

Venice, Italy declares state of emergency over high tides battering city
The water overwhelmed seawalls and smashed brick docks, shoving boats into streets and putting portions of landmarks such as St. According to The Associated Press , the water is expected to rise to around 145 centimeters (4.7 feet) by the end of Tuesday.

"Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace" introduced a character of the same species as Yoda called Yaddle. It appears that baby Yoda might have inherited his or her ancestor's strong Jedi genes if the Empire is so eager to locate them.

Much of the marketing behind the live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian has really been pushing the idea of this masked bounty hunter without a name.

And at least one viewer found more about it they didn't like than they did, though it doesn't seem like that will keep them from tuning in each week.
