Baby Yoda fever is sweeping the nation.  Grab some of his swag for The Mandalorian fan in your life before Christmas.

So the big question that is on everybody's mind is...what species are the Yodas?  Well, that's complicated because no one knows, not even its creator George Lucas.  He said this in an interview with Moviephone:

He's a mystery character...he's a magical character. He has no background. He comes and he goes. He's the subversive secret mysterious stranger that enters the film and then exits at the end.

When George Lucas originally created the character, he was intended as a mysterious creature, an open-ended question in a wide universe.

What's amazing about Baby Yoda is that he has learned to use the force even before learning how to talk.  This kid is gonna be a beast.  Everyone thought Rey was the next Jedi coming, we ain't seen nothing yet.
