The Mandalorian has been the gift we never knew we needed. In the short time since it premiered, fans have been flocking to the show - and the finale is currently rated at an extremely rare 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

If you've not heard of it, you will at least have seen Baby Yoda knocking around on every single social media page, but for some context - it's set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi and, while most predicted it to be a success, few could have foreseen exactly how crazy fans were going to go.

Final episode 'Redemption' has a perfect 100 percent Fresh rating with 14 reviews submitted from professional critics.

Disney's Brandon Davis wrote: "It's all so impressively executed, resulting in the best Star Wars content in years. The Mandalorian's pace of storytelling is masterful, with each entry earning a well-timed action sequence that appears to be above television standards.

"A man whose face is not seen until the final episode is made to be interestingly human and his allies each have their own respective highlights in the final episodes.

"And, well, Baby Yoda is just adorable every time it graces the screen - especially when it is saving the day in epic fashion. The show is a well-balanced adventure through the galaxy, full of hope, thrills, and triumph."

And if there's one stand-out theme of the show, it's got to be Baby Yoda.


To clarify, we should point out that the character isn't actually the Yoda we all know from the main Star Wars series - he's dead, remember? Rather this is just another member of the same species, whose name we still don't know yet.

That's not stopped him from stealing the show though, and if our Instagram and Twitter feeds have been anything to go by over the past seven days, then Baby Yoda is well on is way to becoming an icon in his own right.

Although the show isn't set to be released in the UK until March 2020, it's currently available to watch in the US, Canada and the Netherlands.
