George Lucas’ Picture With Baby Yoda Goes Viral

A photo leaked by Kate Taylor of Business Insider shows Sharon Price, CEO of Build-A-Bear, holding up a Baby Yoda stuffed toy.

Does he now have his very own copy of "The Child" in his possession?

Additionally, there are still thousands of Star Wars and The Mandalorian-related results on Etsy, but Disney seems to be targeting the more popular or high-profile sellers.

But a search on Etsy Friday revealed a crocheted Baby Yoda doll by Cassie's Crochet for $260; a "hand painted" Baby Yoda doll with handmade clothing by Nerdprint Crafts for $130; and a tiny 3D-printed model for $18 by HappyHappyHappyCo.

The show's creator, Jon Favreau, shared the snap on Instagram, where it has received more than 500,000 likes.

Baby Yoda here, being cute.

Disney was slow to produce Baby Yoda merchandise and its own plush of "The Child," more commonly known as Baby Yoda, sold out and has yet to be restocked.

Star Wars fans just can't get enough of Baby Yoda.

Etsy artist Tanya Alvarez confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that the online store deactivated her listing of a Baby Yoda-inspired plush toy and sent her an email alert that Disney had filed a trademark infringement complaint.

However, that hasn't stopped those sellers from fulfilling their backlog of orders, or from selling further products that resemble Baby Yoda.

As we wait for both the toys and the Build-A-Bear newbies, we can all turn our attention to the lords who control the emojis that we use on our smartphones as there's a massive petition asking them to make a Baby Yoda one.
