Film Theory: The Problem with Baby Yoda (Star Wars: The Mandalorian)

  • Published on Dec 8, 2019
  • Find out HOW the Force Really WORKS! ►
    The best thing to come from the new Star Wars show The Mandalorian, so far, is Baby Yoda. The internet is OBSESSED with this little green alien. In Baby Yoda's first appearance, we are told it is 50 years old. WHAT? That made my Theorist brain go crazy! A 50 year old toddler is the worst evolutionary cycle I have ever seen or heard. It got me thinking, what does the lifespan of a Yoda look like and what does that mean for the future of Baby Yoda - and all Yodas? Time to find out!

    5:11, considering that all canon and non canon trydactles speak in broken English, I think that language might be a bit later down on development for them, our main issue is we are comparing the life cycle of a trydactle to that of a human when in reality, it's not the same species and might develop certain skills before others in a way that is different from us.

    i always assumed yoda died early to be honest, hes living on a shifty backwater planet with what doesn't look like the best atmosphere, hes fought presumably a lot of really rough battles, hes also probably expended a lot of energy keeping his force presence hidden. given the less than ideal living conditions and the other issues i think its entirely possible his race could hit 1,100 if a few things are taken care of
    1 they are in their native environment just seems logical , the gravity, air pressure, gas combination in the atmosphere
    2 if point 1 isn't , then some created environement , a standard of starwars but not degoba, its a swamp world just sorta existing no technology
    3 hasn't fought some horrific battles / duels with dark force users, and then hiding themselves from the galaxy
    3 one of them inner chill types , meditating to a higher plane, like some temple types acheive

    yeah, just how i feel on it.

    couldn't baby Yoda's species planet just be like Neptune or Pluto and just take a long time to orbit, so aging that would take us hundreds of years, would take their species one single orbit, so one years old? Isn't it the farther out the planet is at orbit from a sun that if creatures were to live on it, that they live longer?
