'The Mandalorian' continues to look like a breakout success for Disney+

With the highly anticipated release of The Mandalorian on Disney+, fans were ecstatic to find out that the story involves Yoda as a child (who is 50 years old, I might add).

In a red carpet interview, Director Dave Filoni said: "That's fine".

The initial lack of merchandise is said to have been a creative decision, with "Mandalorian" creator Jon Favreau saying that he asked Disney to hold off marketing the character in order to preserve the surprise at the end of the show's first episode.

But, as a cursory glance at Twitter suggests, Baby Yoda is no mere television character. Until more is revealed, though, Baby Yoda merchandise awaits.

With that in mind, beware of Baby Yoda bootleg merchandise.

Taking to Twitter, Marvel.com associate editor Rachel Paige chose to put up a post comparing 50-year-old Paul Rudd to 50-year-old Baby Yoda.

The Baby Yoda merchandise "Star Wars" fans are looking for will be available ahead of the holidays.

The Disney Store has tons of awesome The Mandalorian merchandise available now, including shirts for men, women, and kids. I'm also impressed with the action levels in each episode, I was expecting the series to have much less action than we've seen so far.

Some of the toys and collectibles released for Mandalorian include some Funko Pops for The Mandalorian, IG-11 (the robot from episode 2), Cara Dune, and Kuill.

Though the background of The Child and others of Yoda's race remains mysterious, one thing is clear: Baby Yoda toys on your Christmas list you will have!

How soon can you expect merchandise to be in physical stores? But don't wait - all of the baby Yoda toys will be in high demand when they launch, and some of the Mandalorian merch items are already selling out online!

As a Disney franchise, it's likely the new character's products (including toys) will also hit the Disney Store, ShopDisney and Disney Parks stores soon.

In a bitterly divided nation, few things have the power to bring us together - and one of them seems to be a doe-eyed green puppet the internet has dubbed "Baby Yoda".
