Baby Yoda fights Emperor Palpatine in a brilliant new Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith fan edit.
Thanks to YouTuber MaxeBaumannFilms2013, Baby Yoda fans can enjoy even more of their favorite adorable (yet mysterious) puppet character, and this time he gets to really show off his Force powers (which of course were only briefly glimpsed on The Mandalorian) as he takes on Emperor Palpatine aka Darth Sidious in an edited scene from Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. See the video in the space below:
The new Star Wars character has the world by storm, capturing the hearts of all who’ve seen the show. That apparently stands true for the people involved with the show, with series star Werner Herzog calling the powers that be “cowards” for wanting to remove the Baby Yoda prop in exchange for digital effects.
“I was directing Werner with the puppet, and Werner had just fallen in love with the baby. Werner, I think, had forgotten it wasn’t actually a live creature, and started sort of… directing the baby,” director Deborah Chow said in a previous interview. “Werner is talking to the baby as if it was a real thing. And I’m trying to direct Werner and I’m just like, ‘How did I get here? How did my life end up like this?’”
The Mandalorian releases new episodes on Disney+ every Friday. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is set for release on December 20th.
