After two episodes of Disney's new Mandalorian TV show, we now know that a certain force-sensitive baby is going to be very important for the future of Star Wars. Baby Yoda, as fans have come to call the little guy, is a mysterious green creature that appears to hail from the same species as the famous Muppet Jedi voiced by Frank Oz, who George Lucas used to joke was "the illegitimate child of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy."
Star Wars Character Could Explain Baby Yoda's Connection to 'The Mandalorian'

All we know about Baby Yoda is that he's 50 years old. And, that the Empire, or whatever's left of it, is willing to pay top dollar to gain possession of him–dead or alive. Although so little has been revealed about Baby Yoda–or Yoda himself for that matter (we don't even know the name of his species)–there is a member of the species in the Star Wars expanded universe who bears a direct connection to the ancient Mandalorian race. This pointy-ear Jedi may be the key to understanding the path ahead for Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni's new TV show.
