Who is Baby Yoda?
First things first, the Disney Plus character has no name in the series as of now. And Disney would prefer to keep it a secret for a while. The name ‘Baby Yoda’ is the internet’s invention because, well, he looks like the iconic Star Wars’ Yoda, only a much younger cuter version.
The Original Star Wars Yoda-
Dinsey made nothing public about the new Yoda in The Mandalorian, a series that has left the internet in a frenzy. We don’t know his name. We don’t know if it is surely “he”( minus a few hints that point he is a Mandalorian “boy”).

The Mandalorian series and Baby Yoda
All we know that Disney Plus’ ‘Baby Yoda’ is incredibly adorable and has superpowers. And the best theory that links him to the original Yoda from the Star War series is that the ‘baby’ one is a clone. Still vague but it is the only one that logically links up the two Yodas. Or the two are just worlds apart and have nothing to do with each other.
It is still unclear – where will Mandalorian take Baby Yoda and with having so many secrets revolding around it, we have all the reasons to believe that the character has a great future going forward.
Though there is only handful information about the species in question – the makers will find enough space for innovating and taking creatibity around the character to unimagiable new levels. That said: Disney is damn serious to build an amazing baby Yoda future.

Disney might be planning a movie?!
Whatever Disney is hiding along with Baby Yoda’s name, one thing is out of the bag: Baby Yoda is the future. That is, if he remains a baby for some time. “The Child” is probably the only tag that Disney has given the cutest character of this century. The mere fact that they are not revealing the name of the child hints that the name itself might be a big revelation to the future Disney has planned for him.
Apart from the Madronian, it is sure that Baby Yoda is coming to a stand-alone Disney Project. All thanks to his viral popularity that seemingly never ceasing to grow. After the Mandrodian has explored Baby Yoda’s character and identity, we might get a movie on ‘the Child’s story.
The Yoda species haven’t been explored much, and are just waiting to be turned into some director’s masterpiece.

Whenever Disney’s Baby Yoda movie goes on the floors, it might not be in until late 2020. With Disney Plus focusing single-mindedly on Marvel Phase 4, it is highly unlikely that 2020 will be the year of Yoda. With this, it can easily be said that the Disney Baby Yoda movie will be available by Christmas 2021. But if the demand for Baby Yoda stays strong, Disney might give in a little earlier! (We will be voting for the latter).
Also, we will be waiting to bask in more cute Baby Yoda moments, won’t we all?
