Baby Yoda vs Baby Jabba

Than The child is the king of the party at Disney right now is far from discussion. That his reign could be overshadowed … not so much. Well, at least that’s what many fans think have fallen before the last retouched character Baby Yoda. We refer, of course, to the image that you can see a little below in which we have nothing more and nothing less than a Baby jabba.

In case the name catches you a little clueless, Jabba the Hutt, which is as it is known, is a character also from the universe of Star wars. This alien creature belongs to the Hutt species and has a somewhat unpleasant appearance: it is a huge slug-like worm, more than three meters long. It is also not especially friendly and in fact it is dedicated to the criminal world throughout the galaxy.


Jabba first appeared in the Episode VI – The Return of the Jedi, in 1983, to then make the leap to Episode IV – A New Hope (1997) and at Episode I – The Phantom Menace (released in 1999). Now back to the front page thanks to Leonardo Viti, an artist specializing in 3D creations and sculptures that has given life to a “baby” version of the character. The result is a somewhat strange mixture in which the adorable features of a baby creature and the grotesque Jabba are shaking hands. Even so, the images of this occurrence, published on Viti’s Instagram, have been overwhelmingly successful, especially after the impulse of actress Olivia Munn, who showed Baby Jabba after discovering it in a forum thread Reddit (Actually the publication of the artist’s account is from November 28):

As we said there are people who have been delighted with the occurrence and with the work behind (we will not deny that it is really well done) and those who have been quick to compare it with a certain TV creature have not been missing … They have their similarity, since then:

What do you think, do you like Baby Jabba or do you prefer Baby Yoda?

Baby Yoda, the great Disney phenomenon

We say many times that The Mandalorian It has been the great success of the Disney platform – by the way, did you see our comparison of services now that we already know the price and arrival date of Disney + to UK? -, and although in some ways its plot and atmosphere are really very well mounted around the essence of Star Wars, possibly the impact would not have been the same without Baby Yoda.

Baby Yoda - The Mandalorian

From the moment that this creature appeared at the end of the first episode, the internet was filled with images and comments about this character that was nicknamed by everyone like Baby Yoda, although later we would find out that it is officially “The Child”, at least until it is revealed his real name in the second season of a series. For eight fun episodes we have been so aware of Mandalorian as of this little creature, of which there is memes, GIFs and even videos in loop with their expressions on YouTube. And that is not to mention all the merchandising that Disney prepares to make the character profitable.

Would such an effect have been achieved with baby Jabba? Let us doubt it …
