Star Wars fans rejoice, as Disney has just announced that you could grab your own Baby Yoda plush toy to enjoy.
“The cutest thing in the galaxy can now be yours. Pre-order the Child plush now!” ShopDisney wrote in a Facebook post, which has already garnered scores of likes, comments and reshares since being posted.
CNN reported that Disney revealed a new Baby Yoda toy that is set to be available in March of 2020.
Baby Yoda made his official appearance during “The Mandalorian” premiere on Nov. 12. The Mandalorian follows the journey of a Mandalorian bounty hunter along with an adorable green alien infant called “Baby Yoda,” who wields Jedi-like powers. The series takes place about five years after the events of the 1983 film “Return of the Jedi.”
Even more alluring is that Baby Yoda has received more social media interaction than that of any 2020 Democratic presidential candidate. According to data from Newswhip provided to Axios, the famous character from Disney+’s Star Wars series is driving nearly twice as many average social media interactions on news stories pertaining to the character.
Fans can now pre-order the Child Plush – Star Wars: The Mandalorian for $24.99. However, the item is not expected to be available until early March 2020, according to ShopDisney.com.
“It was important to us that the reveal of the new character, the Child, be a special moment for fans, and we could not be more thrilled with the response,” Paul Southern, senior vice president of licensing and franchise of Lucasfilm, said in a statement earlier this month. “We’re excited to release new products for pre-order on shopDisney.com, and are continuing to work closely with our licensees and retailers to roll out additional items including toys, collectibles, plush, games, apparel and more, allowing fans to celebrate the newest addition to Star Wars.”
