Baby Yoda’s price tag? Very expensive.

*While speaking to Entertainment Weekly, TV actor and known Baby Yoda puncher Adam Pally dropped a tidbit of knowledge on how many dollar bills you’ll need to build your own Baby Yoda.

*Pally describes acting in the scene where he decided to close his heart to humanity forever and punch the tiny frog lover. He took a pretty big swing at the bag (which actually contained the Baby Yoda puppet)and was then informed by series creator Jon Favreau of the the hefty price tag of the world’s adopted tiny green son.

* “They called ‘cut’ and Jon, who was watching on a monitor in his office, came down and said, ‘I just want to let you know that this is the hero and it costs, like, $5 million. So while I want you to hit it, I just want you to know that.’”

*Suddenly, paying $25 for a vinyl Baby Yoda is a bargain.

I figured he cost a lot to make, but I had no idea it would be close to that much.

Still - the animatronic is ridiculously good, so at least it seems like the money was well spent?
Can I just once again RAIL at how dirty the ST did the OT trilogy, but especially Luke? Like JJ sucks, but at least Luke wasn't AS pathetic as he was in TLJ.

But damn it! I love ROTJ Luke. I love the Timothy Zahn books that run with that Luke. grrrrrrr. I hate the ST so much, and TLJ especially.
ROTJ Luke is best Luke hands down.
Yeah go for it, I don't mind!

Also ROTJ is legit my favorite film because of Luke so <3

adding; damn, mark in RotJ could get it.
RoTJ Luke in that black outfit was my first crush.
They did the OG trio (plus Chewie) so dirty. No on-screen reunion, and Mark Hamill pointed out the other day that Luke never even met Poe or Finn. And hoo boy, did they really shit the bed on which actors were going to make it all the way to the end, didn't they? Let's kill Han and Luke and have Leia serve as a pseudo emotional core of the trilogOOPS

I am simply agog at how badly Disney messed that up.
I’m sure Jon was over exaggerating a bit but he probably is pretty pricey especially when you consider it takes two puppeteers to control him, one operating his face and the other his body.

Part of me wants to see how they designed him and operate him etc but then part of me doesn’t want to destroy that illusion.

The only thing I hope they change for future seasons is fixing how stiff and doll-like he looks when people pick up and hold him. The immersion is totally broken. They need a squishy prop and/or to animate his legs curling up like a real baby's do when held.
mte, and i'm glad they did it instead of making him CGI. it doesn't matter how good it is, it's just not the same.
THIS MUFFIN. I love him so much. I wish it wasn't such a long wait for S2
This had to be his Joey felt with C.H.E.E.S.E.
Also just occurring to me that cheese spelling is probably done in a nod to F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
adam pally beat my baby yoda 2020

I just want my plush 😭

They need to make one that doesnt look like shit lol
Worth it. Look at his teeny teeth his face is presh

The best thing is to watch mixups reactions of the episodes

known Baby Yoda puncher

yeah fuck this guy
just fuck me up

You guys I just
lmao i love that they actually had pally and sudekis on set
Horatio Sanz said that Pedro was in the suit the whole time (expect for stunts) I was surprised. I thought he would just do the voice over.
yeah he was there physically except in episode 4 because he had to do a play that week, so when Bryce told she never saw Pedro, people started saying he was never in the suit when she said "he wasn't available in the episode I directed"
wait horatio sanz was in this?

From what I understand, Pedro and his two stunt men coordinate on how Mando should move and react to things in order to have some cohesion in the performance. I think it's rad.
lol the world is so stupid
Every time I hear anything about Adam Pally I just think of power hour episode of High & Mighty where he started trying to shake the audience down for coke and cigarettes after like 7 shots of beer.
My photo album on my phone is currently 75% baby Yoda photos/memes/gifs and I regret nothing
lmao mine's mostly Pedro pics oop
I’ve never seen this show. But I’m in love with this green lil bastard. He makes me instantly smile.
I love the interview where Oscar Isaac says "Kill it" when asked about bb yoda.
