Disney knows how much you love Baby Yoda, the breakout star of “The Mandalorian.” Now, the company is hoping you’ll put that money where your mouth is.
A Disney spokesperson told TheWrap that apparel and accessories of the little green guy, known only as “The Child” in the series, will be available through a host of retailers including Amazon and Zazzle, and the websites for Target, Kohls, Macys, HotTopic and BoxLunch. Apparel will be available at the Disney Store, shopDisney, Disney Parks and at retail before the holidays. In the next few weeks, toys and plush Baby Yoda will be available for pre-order, with a wider variety of products that will be coming to brick and mortar stores in the next few months.
There are already t-shirts available on Amazon for $22.99 and $25.99, which you can view below.
The inclusion of a Baby Yoda was one of the reasons for the intense secrecy around “The Mandalorian” in the weeks leading up to its launch. It was the one show that Disney+ did not make available for critics ahead of its Nov. 12 premiere. Now we know why. (Before “Star Wars” fans yell at us, we know he’s not exactly a child version of Yoda — the 900-year-old Jedi Master and mentor to Luke Skywalker — but a child of the same, unidentified race as Yoda.)
CNBC first reported that Baby Yoda merchandise would be arriving soon.
