Did this 2002 Star Wars game predict The Mandalorian?

You may be in luck.

On Wednesday, Star Wars fans who subscribed to Disney + and saw The Mandalorian's reveal of a rather adorable young character were irritated that no official merchandising or toys were yet available.

Showrunner Jon Favreau released this concept art of Baby Yoda, and the Internet went wild. By tapping into Kinderschema, a set of characteristics that were first described by the Austrian ethologist Konrad Lorenz and include "large eyes relative to face", "rounded, protruding cheeks", a "rounded body shape", and a "large" and "rounded head". Are you as obsessed with "Baby Yoda" as much as we are? Lucasfilm was surprisingly successful in doing so until the show aired.

Clothing and accessories featuring the character known as The Child will soon be available via Amazon, Target, Kohl's, Macy's, Zazzle, Hot Topic, and Box Lunch, CNBC confirmed with a source familiar with Disney's plans. The items aren't on the websites just yet, but the outlet said they could be available "as early as Friday", possibly referring to November 22.

Other products will also arrive at the Disney Store, ShopDisney and at the Disney Parks before the holidays. Pre-sale purchases of Baby Yoda plushies and other toys will also be available in the next few weeks, though it remains unclear when the products will be shipped. You can order them, respectively, HERE, and HERE.

Two t-shirts are already available to buy on Amazon, with a range of USA stores such as Target, Macy's and Hot Topic set to sell the items as well. Only Star Wars creator George Lucas himself reportedly knows the background of the very Force-sensitive, syntax mixing creatures.

The newest character in the "Star Wars" universe who resembles infamous Jedi master Yoda debuted in the first episode of the new Disney+ show, completely outshining the titular main character played by Pedro Pascal.
