Star Wars: Anthony Daniels Warns Fans About Buying Baby Yoda Toys

There is little doubt that the whole world wants a Baby Yoda toy this Christmas. But before you set out and pre-purchase one of these adorable Star Wars plushies and action figures, you need to read Anthony Daniels' warning about the Child.

Daniels recently spoke to HuffPost about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and it didn't take long before the conversation turned to Baby Yoda. Not surprisingly, the C-3PO actor is already aware of the little icon and believes the Mandalorian star will be the hottest new thing during the holidays.

"Ah, Baby Yoda. It had to happen. It had to happen just before Christmas," Daniels said. "Baby Yoda is the thing, maybe the toy of the month, the year, whatever. Yoda is such an adored character created by Frank Oz, and obviously now we are looking back at origins."


The Rise of Skywalker star then continued that Baby Yoda's introduction was the result of people wanting to explore more about Star Wars characters. He then joked that buying a Baby Yoda toy isn't for the faint-hearted.

"I don't know. I love the inventiveness with Star Wars, the creative inventiveness that Star Wars has fostered over the years, whether it's with the technicians or with fans," Daniels said. "And of course, some of the fans now work on the movies because their abilities are so great. Baby Yoda is cute, gorgeous, but I would warn the public that Baby Yoda is not just for Christmas. It's a responsibility."

We're pretty sure The Mandalorian's Mando would agree would him on this one since he's currently saddled with taking care of the Child on the show. Nevertheless, we still want Baby Yoda toys this Christmas and yes, we're going to take very good care of him.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will premiere on December 20.
