Baby Yoda mania is still in full swing with no signs of slowing down. The Mandalorian breakout star is everywhere and he now even has his own Hamilton-inspired song. The song in question is based on "Dear Theodosia" from Hamilton: An American Musical. One would expect Baby Yoda fever to die down in the weeks to come, but we still don't even have the full line of merchandise yet, but that will change in the coming months. New plush toys, Funko Pop! figures, and more are all on the way.
Like "Dear Theodosia" from Hamilton, "Dear Baby Yoda" is full of positivity and dedicated to a bright future. The video for the song finds the duo Ice2Ice proclaiming their love of Baby Yoda, even going as far as to replace family photos with images of The Child. Sample lyrics include "Mando will fight for you," along with words about how the duo "will dedicate every meme" to Baby Yoda. As a warning, one should not watch the video and listen to the song if they don't want it stuck in their heads all day.
Taken at face value, "Dear Baby Yoda" fits in with the rest of Baby Yoda madness. However, the song appears to be mocking the fad, which makes it all the more better. They even hint at Baby Yoda's return in The Mandalorian season 2, which has since been confirmed by The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. For now, Star Wars fans who are fed up with The Child are going to have to wait a while for this storm to pass because it doesn't look like it's going anywhere at this point in time.
The Mandalorian is now the most in-demand show in the world, even beating Netflix's Stranger Things. Disney+ debuted the first live-action Star Wars series less than a month ago and it has become a huge hit across the board. Disney made the decision to go with the one episode per week model and it has proven to be a wise decision for the new series. Fans are tuning in each week for new material and then discussing it on social media and even going back in to watch episodes two and three more times.
Baby Yoda fever is here to stay, but one has to wonder when the inevitable backlash will occur. There's a small possibility that it won't ever happen, but this is Star Wars fandom we're talking about here. Baby Yoda could very much end up like the Ewoks and Porgs before him when history looks back at The Mandalorian. It will all depend on what Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni have planned for the larger story arc for the series and the character. Will we see him turn into a formidable Force user? We'll just have to wait and see. You can check out the "Dear Baby Yoda" song below, thanks to the The Ringer's YouTube channel.
