Disney reminds us that “Baby Yoda” is not actually Yoda, but could be related to him in this CNN article. If you’re in Disneyland, you can see a Baby Yoda drawn out of chocolate! I’m already hungry just from seeing the picture!
Parts of the Star Wars fanbase believe a director’s cut of SW: The Rise of Skywalker exists, and Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) is poking some fun with them on Instagram. If a director’s cut does exist, I hope Disney releases it – it’s basically free money for them! While we’re discussing Rise, Vox claims that Babu Frik is a “perfect” character.
