Mandalorian Season 2 Premiere: Baby Yoda Has Invaded Twitter, God Help Us

Baby Yoda fans on Twitter are seeing a fun surprise related to The Mandalorian's Season 2 premiere.


The Mandalorian Season 2 has arrived on Disney+, and we have some news about the premiere episode: It features plenty of Baby Yoda.

That may not actually be news, but Mando fans who took to Twitter tonight to tweet about the show got a nice surprise when interacting with tweets about the show: In addition to seeing an emoji of Din Djarin's helmet alongside the hashtag #TheMandalorian, users will see a tiny, animated "The Child" (AKA Baby Yoda) pop up every time they like a tweet featuring said hashtag.

You might have noticed this organically if, like us, you stayed up past your bedtime tonight to watch The Mandalorian's Season 2 premiere. But it was also brought to our attention on Twitter by Brandon San Giovanni, who, according to his bio, works on Disney+. "In case anyone was wondering, you bet your ass we made it so that the heart turns into baby Yoda when you like a tweet with #TheMandalorian hashtag," he wrote in response to a fan.

The Mandalorian Season 2 may prove to be one of the highlights of 2020, and interacting with other Star Wars fans on Twitter for the next couple of months is going to be just a bit more fun thanks to this little trick.

Naturally, we're going to be covering the whole season, so stay tuned to GameSpot for all the Baby Yoda and Mando you can handle.
