“Star Wars” fans already can’t get enough of the “Baby Yoda” character on Disney Plus’ new series “The Mandalorian,” and now the show’s creator is melting hearts all over again.
In a tweet posted Tuesday afternoon, Jon Favreau showed fans the original concept art for this mysterious “child.”

The little green creature can’t literally be Yoda, since “The Mandalorian” takes place several years after the events of “The Return of the Jedi” (in which Yoda died). But fans have taken to calling the child Baby Yoda anyway as shorthand. It’s definitely the same species as Yoda, and it could even be a clone of Yoda.
Favreau’s tweet had more than 8,000 (and counting) likes within just 20 minutes of his sharing the image. People were gushing over the adorable little face of Baby Yoda.
"How many tattoos do you have?"
Me: Only one….
"What is it?"
Me: (Reveals Baby Yoda original concept art full back tattoo to an audible gasp followed by tears, applause and admiration) https://t.co/ZPotj9zZ8m
