If you have watched the first two episodes of The Mandalorian, there's a huge chance you have fallen in love with what is probably the most adorable character introduced in the Star Wars universe (we know Twitter is obsessed). But don't let that innocent face fool you. There's a possibility that the mysterious target is actually a clone created in Kamino.


In the first episode of The Mandalorian, it was revealed that the titular bounty hunter has been sent to Arvala-7 to procure an asset that turns out to be a 50-year-old child that belongs to the same species as Yoda. This makes the mission even more interesting considering that the client who sent him has Imperial connections and is working with a Kaminoan colleague.

Wait, we missed that part, too. However, a Twitter user has helpfully pointed out that Dr. Pershing wears the Kamino patch on his sleeve. Check it out below.

So what does this all mean? There are speculations that Baby Not-Yoda is actually a clone. Additionally, Dr. Pershing seems insistent on bringing the child back alive, suggesting that it isn't as disposable as the Client implies. With that in mind, there is a possibility that we're looking at a clone of the Jedi Master Yoda.

It's an interesting theory but one that seems feasible because you don't introduce a Kaminoan character without a reason, right? Those guys were responsible for creating the Clone Army in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and the army might not be their only big project. However, it's important to point out that this is a mere theory for now and should be taken with a grain of salt.

The next episode of The Mandalorian will premiere on Disney+ on November 22.
