The third episode of Disney Plus' new series "The Mandalorian" premiered Nov. 22, 2019, and with it came a new wave of viral tweets all celebrating the small green "Baby Yoda."
The show has yet to reveal a name for the little being, so fans have taken to simply calling it "Baby Yoda." This show takes place after "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi," which means it's not literally young Yoda (though it could be his clone). But the term has stuck anyways, and even the show's pilot episode director Dave Filoni says the name "Baby Yoda" is perfectly acceptable until we know more about it.
So for now, let's just enjoy all of the viral tweets about this small baby who the entire world will protect at all costs.
The third episode of 'The Mandalorian' was all about the bounty hunter giving up 'Baby Yoda' and then coming to his rescue

"Baby Yoda" is truly an internet phenomenon. Fans have been clamoring for merchandise, which was released in a limited quantity last week. The show has also officially dethroned "Stranger Things" as the most "in-demand" show, according to a new report from Business Insider's Travis Clark.
We'll have to wait for more "Baby Yoda" cuteness on the next episode, but in the meantime at least we have the very good tweets.
The fourth episode of "The Mandalorian" premieres Nov. 29, 2019 on Disney Plus.
