The creature formerly known as Baby Yoda was given a new moniker when his real name was revealed during the latest episode of the hit Disney+ series The Mandalorian, and the news became a top trending topic on Twitter.
If you haven’t seen the latest episode of the Star Wars spinoff and wish to preserve your ignorance, read no further. The tiny pale green pop culture phenom has ben referred to as “The Child” in the show, but as Baby Yoda by literally everyone else in the universe.
On Friday’s episode, however, the foundling’s true name was revealed.

The nice thing about Baby Yoda getting a real name is it will serve as a toxic Star Wars nerd honeypot. pic.twitter.com/yB2JZgGnR1
