The stateside show introduced us to a sweet fictional green baby creature, who is actually a 50-year-old child from the same race as Jedi Master Yoda - who knew?!
Of course, that race doesn’t have a specified name in Star Wars world, so fans have been referring to “The Child” as ‘Baby Yoda’.
The fourth episode of the series was shown on Friday and spawned a torrent of Baby Yoda memes, including the now-iconic ‘Baby Yoda sipping soup’, which looks set to replace ‘Kermit the frog sippin’ tea’ on people’s Instagram and Twitter feeds.
The whole internet is here for Baby Yoda. To understand the craze, check out some of the best memes below:
