This week has been an exciting one for fans of The Mandalorian, the hit Disney+ series featuring the adventures of a bounty hunter and his trusty sidekick, a pint-sized creature known as “The Child,” but lovingly referred to by fans as “Baby Yoda.” Not only did the show’s third season premiere to much fanfare, but Google also introduced a fun Easter egg for fans to enjoy.
All you have to do is type in “The Mandalorian,” “Mandalorian,” “Baby Yoda,” or “Grogu” into the search engine, and you’ll be greeted with an adorable animated version of The Child. This Force-sensitive toddler is a member of the same species as the wise Jedi master Yoda, and has captured the hearts of fans with his endearing personality and unique abilities.
If you click on Grogu, you’ll see him use his metaphysical powers to tear search results off the screen and drop them to the bottom. It’s a fun and entertaining feature that gives users a taste of what it might be like to have the Force on their side. While Grogu doesn’t try to eat any of the search results, he does wait patiently with his enormous eyes and even bigger ears, ready for his next task.
The animation can be a little clunky at times, and some of the broken-off pieces may defy gravity and stack precariously on top of others. Nonetheless, it’s a playful distraction that has delighted fans of The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda alike.
In addition to this fun Easter egg, fans can also look forward to the eight-episode third season of The Mandalorian, which is currently airing on Disney+. The series is directed by a talented team of filmmakers, including Rick Famuyiwa, Rachel Morrison, Lee Isaac Chung, Carl Weathers, Peter Ramsey, and Bryce Dallas Howard. Executive produced by Star Wars fans Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, the show features an impressive cast that includes Pedro Pascal, Katee Sackhoff, Carl Weathers, Amy Sedaris, Emily Swallow, and Giancarlo Esposito.
For those who have yet to subscribe to Disney+, the streaming service offers a monthly subscription starting at $7.99 (with ads), or a yearly plan for $79.99, which provides access to a vast library of content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
