Dropping the Shock Trooper

I confess to being a huge Baby Yoda fan. From the moment my fourteen-year-old son showed me a scene from THE MANDALORIAN featuring the little green wrinkly kid with gigantic ears and a mischievous grin, I was all-in. Showcasing terrific storytelling, casting, and F/X, the spinoff show has been an enormous hit.
