Ever since The Mandalorian hit screens, people have been gushing over baby Yoda. He's arguably been one of the biggest standouts from the show and has well and truly been given the viral treatment.
But this week, the internet is gushing over baby Yoda once again, but this time for finally meeting Star Wars creator, George Lucas, and we honestly can't handle it.
The picture is heart-melting. Keep scrolling to take a look...
The Mandalorian has completely won over viewers.
via: imdbThe original sci-fi spin-off series, set in the Star Wars universe, has drawn in significant praise from fans, who have eagerly dug into the episodes when the show landed on Disney +.
The series is set 5 years after the events of Return of the Jedi.
via: imdbDirected by Bryce Dallas Howard, best known for playing Claire Dearing in Jurassic World, The Mandalorian offers Star Wars fans a tantalizing new live-action spin-off of the beloved franchise.
And it's the first of its kind on the platform.
via: imdbThe Mandolorian well and truly keeps the franchise alive - offering what many are describing as a "gritter" take on the universe.
The show is packed full of the usual strange creatures...
via: imdbWe're introduced to IG-11, a droid that's the same model as IG-88 - one of the bounty hunters seen on Darth Vader's Super Star Destroyer in The Empire Strikes Back. We've also caught a glimpse of an Ugnaught - the porcine species previously seen working as janitors on Cloud City in Empire Strikes Back - named Kuill, who appears to be an ally of the Mandalorian.
Fans can't get enough, with some branding the show a "masterpiece."
Okay, The Mandalorian is a masterpiece. Can’t wait to see where the season goes!! Great job on this one @disneyplus @themandalorian— Emily🕉 (@Emily🕉)1574004475.0
But, after watching, it's clear there's been one stand out character from the show so far...
via: Disney...Baby Yoda.
It was an unexpected but welcomed appearance.
via: DisneyThe baby version of the iconic character is one of the most adorable things we've ever seen. He's even become the subject of a meme craze - with hundreds of utterly brilliant memes being created surrounding the little guy.
The internet instantly gushed over the fifty-year-old baby.
via: DisneyThe real Yoda died in Return of the Jedi, at about nine-hundred years old so while it may not seem it, fifty is pretty much newborn for this unknown species.
It's been the highlight of the series for many.
via: DisneySoon after the episode dropped, people flocked to Twitter to announce how they literally cannot live without the adorable little creature.
And he's become an internet sensation.

The obsession with baby Yoda has been sparked once again this week...Why? Because Star Wars creator, George Lucas finally met him. Keep scrolling to see the picture... we can't handle the cuteness.
Lucas is a huge name in the world of film.
via: ShutterstockNot only did he create the Star Wars franchise, but the Indiana Jones franchise too... Oh and he also founded Lucasfilm. Safe to say he's been pretty busy.
As you can imagine, George Lucas means a lot to Star Wars fans...
via: ShutterstockSo this moment was a pretty big deal.
Lucas met the creature while on set shooting for The Mandalorian season 2.And it's already one of the best moments of 2020.
Of course, executive producer, Jon Favreau, wanted to capture the heartwarming moment.So he took a snap of Lucas meeting baby Yoda and shared it online.
Reactions have been fairly strong online.
@Jon_Favreau @PhilSzostak Too perfect. Thank you for sharing this https://t.co/YqTu2OKAWt— DTLA17 (@DTLA17)1579227663.0
Emotions were running high.
@Jon_Favreau I am having EMOTIONS!!— Karla Ortiz (@Karla Ortiz)1579227359.0
Things really feel like they've come full circle.
via: imdbOf course, it was Lucas that created Jedi Master Yoda for his 1980 flick Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. "The Maker and The Child," wrote one Twitter user. "The circle is now complete," added another.
