Is streaming on Disney+ and it is absolutely excellent. Second episode is released on Friday.

It is extremely well done and I am very impressed.

I haven't watched it yet, but will probably this weekend. Football and Basketball are in full swing, so not a lot of extra time.

It's looks really good from the previews.

I won't spoiler too much, but all I will say is that Baby Yoda has broken the internet. Disney is going to make MILLIONS off this little guy this Holiday season.

The explosion on twitter and social media over him is really something else.

Baby Yoda? I'm not going to even search for that until I watch the show, but I thought this show took place after Return of the Jedi? Probably just a nickname.

Five years after the Return of the Jedi, yes. The empire is in shambles, but the First Order hasn't developed yet. The Mandalorian is set in the Outer Rim, and the New Republic hasn't had time to reach that far out yet.

Keep in mind through ALL of star wars canon, Yoda's species and homeworld have never been explained. There are only two known instances of his kind being seen. Of course our classical and famous Yoda and then in the Phantom Menace we see Yaddle, a female of Yoda's race sitting on the Jedi council.

We don't know if "baby Yoda" is their progeny or if this is a clone, or what is going on yet.

All we know is that he is the cutest thing anyone has ever seen.

Finally watched eps 1 and 2. This is a good series. A little slow to start, but I like the story it's building. I wish the shows were longer though (40 mins and 33 mins). I'm also spoiled by the Netflix release the whole season at once thing (I still need to binge Stranger Things season 3). Having to wait a week seems very old school...

My wife is watching with me, but she's just barely watching. My son says he doesn't like any of the new Star Wars, only the original (4, 5 and 6). Very strange for a 16 YO to say that. Yeah, those are still the best ones (especially Empire), but I enjoy them all. He seems to be in a old school phase now. Even with music. He's listening to a lot of my old 80's and 90's rap/hip hop tapes and CD's as well. The majority of rap now a days it just plain bad (with the exception of J Cole and Da Baby), so I'm glad he has a taste for the past.

Anyways, looking forward to seeing where this goes.
