  • Wee Baby Yoda is giving me strong Elora Dannon vibes.

  • I don't know who would be the more stupid here. Someone who actually needs such a simple and uncomplicated (yet awesome) straight forward ending explained to them? Or someone who decided that an ending so obvious and clear actually needed a video dedicated to explain it all and that they were just the experts to provide the "answers". Or me for giving them a click maybe...although I didn't click on the video which should be titled "Dispalying our uncanny ability for having an AMAZING GRASP OF THE OBVIOUS"!

  • I wonder if the new series coming up with Obi Wan shares the same time & space, and whether both shows story lines will intertwine? Also hoping Disney develops an animated series like the Clone Wars that'll take place between Chapters 3 &4 .

  • Not Yoda. Played years after Yoda died. Either Yoda clone or another of his species.

  • When the dark rises up, the light rises to meet it. The child came into existence at the same time as Anakin. It's been learned now that Palpatine was the one that used the force to create Anakin, the most powerful of the Dark. It's entirely possible that the Light created the child in mirror of Palpatine using the Dark to create Anakin.

  • I clearly didnt expect that ending and I was freaking out because it made me so happy and sad at the same time. The baby is so cute but it still reminds me on Yoda, which is dead. Very good first episode in my opinion.

    Jacob DeanJacob Dean9 หลายเดือนก่อน
  • What the hell needs to be explained here? If you watched it, you have seen the ending, there wasn't even anything complicated going on. Like what, you have some hot new take on something everybody missed? Love Nerdist (less so since Jessica Chobot left) but this is stupid. It's frustrating on other channels too - granted, you guys offer a bit more content but it's still shitty clickbait :(

  • Here's my theory. It is Yoda and Yaddle's baby. (And before you all go all HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST YODA BROKE THE CODE!!!! on me, here me out.) In the expanded universe it's explained that the council allowed jedi whose species was endangered to breed to keep their race alive. But they couldn't have any connections to their offspring. (I know, so cruel.) Maybe Yoda and Yaddle were among the last of their kind, and had one baby together that they left with somebody they trusted so they could continue to be jedi. BUT, it's also explained that Yaddle left the high council before the clone wars. Maybe she missed her baby, and knew Yoda was needed in the order more than in a family. So she left to raise her baby by herself. 😢 And we all know Yoda is gone now, but what about Yaddle?. Well, maybe she either died of old age like Yoda, or she died trying to protect her baby. (Idk about you, but the way they found baby Yoda, reminded me of when Kala found Tarzan.)

  • I was somewhat disappointed by this episode. They say each episode was about $10 million each, but the angles were really tight which made the sets seem small and some of the animatronics looked cheap. A lot of the writing seemed corny and rushed. I was really surprised with everything Disney has behind them for resources that there are so few episodes and kind of a poor quality product. Still going to watch and don't hate it, but it was a bit of an underwhelming first episode with a good ending.
