7 Interesting Facts You Missed About Baby Yoda

Baby Yoda (also known as Grogu)-This lovable creature from “The Mandalorian” has gained a big love from Star War fans. He may well grow up to be our master.
Here are 7 interesting facts you missed about Baby Yoda

1. He really likes round objects

Baby Yoda has had a weird obsession with a spherical knob on one of the ship's control levers ever since he first sat in Din's Razor Crest ship's cockpit. In Season 1, it appeared as though he simply goes for the knob and takes it in his mouth like a newborn. However, Grogu's fixation grows in Season 2, and whenever he gets the chance, he uses the Force to telekinetically drag the knob closer to him.

2. He is not Yoda.

Although people call him Baby Yoda, if you haven’t seen The Mandalorian, you might not know that he is actually not the baby version of Yoda, the green Grandmaster of the Jedi Order from Episodes I – VI.

3. But for sure, he is the same species as Yoda.

 We don’t even know what his species is called or where they’re from, hence this little green fella being nicknamed “Baby Yoda”. But one thing we know for sure is that he is definitely the same species as the Grandmaster.

4. Baby Yoda's age is 50 years old.

He was born in 41 BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin), and The Mandalorian is set in 9 ABY (After the Battle of Yavin). Meanwhile, Anakin Skywalker (Darth Vader) was also born under mysterious circumstances in 41 BBY. While it's unclear if the show will make that connection between Grogu and Anakin explicit, their shared birth year is unlikely to be a coincidence.
Why does Grogu still look and behave like a baby if he is 50 years old?
Ahsoka Tano confirmed in Season 2 - Episode 5 that Grogu belongs to the same species as Jedi Grand Master Yoda. Yoda lived to be 900 years old before dying of old age. Therefore, we can infer that Grogu's species ages differently and much slower than humans.

5. Grogu is happy to eat almost anything

"Yoda's species is thought to be carnivorous, based on Yoda's sharp teeth and claws. And given Baby Yoda's instinctual appetite for frogs, this may be true. However, Jedi Master Yoda also is shown to sustain himself on roots and mushrooms, indicating his species is omnivorous." -
So far we've seen Grogu stuff whole frogs in his mouth, eat unfertilized eggs, and even unborn ice-spider babies. Occasionally Grogu will enjoy a normal bowl of soup with Din, but whenever unsupervised, he is liable to shove basically anything down his green gullet.
He also steals a snack from another child and devours them throughout the episode (before puking them up at the end) in Chapter 12 (Season 2, Episode 4).

6. Baby Yoda is really strong with The Force more than you expected.

Midichlorians are an essential part of the Star Wars mythology, they are the reason The Force “surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together”.
When Qui Gon asks for a midichlorian count of young Anakin’s blood in The Phantom Menace, a young Obi Wan exclaims “The reading is off the chart – over 20,000! Even Master Yoda doesn’t have a midichlorian count that high!”

So we know that Yoda himself (and presumably Yaddle) have a high midichlorian count, but now as we see the loveable little Baby Yoda use The Force in The Mandalorian, it does give some clout to the fan theory that all of Yoda’s species are strong in The Force, much like the Night Sisters of Dathomir – the clan whom Asajj Ventress belongs to.

7. However, he is also struggling with the dark side of the force

At the end of Chapter 14, Moff Gideon kidnaps Grogu, and we see Grogu essentially torturing Stormtroopers with the Force in his holding cell. Jedi are meant to be peacekeepers who only ever use the Force to defend themselves. Grogu continues to Force-choke the troopers even after he has rendered them helpless by hurling them across the room, possibly out of anger. is a website that provides you with Entertainment information and creative ideas to refresh your days.
