Star Wars: The Mandalorian has debuted a character called “The Child,” but of course fans have been lovingly calling the precious creature “Baby Yoda.” While he is as cute as a button, there is supposedly a lot more to this little guy than his adorable exterior.

ScreenRant reports that Carl Weathers, who plays Greef Carga on the Disney+ series, recently sat down with Reuters and briefly discussed Baby Yoda. He explained that more will be revealed about this teeny character in the remaining episodes:

“You have to see the shows to figure out who this baby Yoda really is, and what he is all about, or even if he is really a baby Yoda... He has his own name, and he is very interesting and very knowledgeable and very cute. I never use that word, but he is a cute little guy.”

I guess as Yoda would say, patience we must have. Find out more about the adorable character when new episodes of The Mandalorian stream every week on Disney+.
