It's called baby yoda because George never allowed the species to be formally named.

Yeah, I would buy that. However, George's opinion doesn't matter anymore so it's not gonna cut it with me.

Okay, real talk time.


Something that has bothered me since I first started watching is that something about the main Mandalorian theme keeps making me think of one of the many original themes from the Rocky movie series. Add to that the early regular presence of Carl "Apollo" Weathers and you have my brain routinely getting distracted trying to connect references that probably aren't there.

Has anyone else noticed this yet? I haven't gone through my Rocky soundtracks yet (I might have to this weekend) to figure out exactly which theme keeps getting misfired in my brain whenever The Mandalorian main theme plays out.
