Bob Iger, the head of the Walt Disney Company, of course says the Mandalorian’s Baby Yoda has a real name, and it is neither Baby Yoda nor The Child. And of course he doesn’t say it.
“I know the real name, and that’s one of the reasons why I now have additional security because I don’t want to get some kind of truth serum from someone,” said Iger in an interview with StarWars.com’s The Star Wars Show.

I mean shouldn’t he? I would imagine that Baby Yoda’s real name – damn it, the name of the Yoda species remains a mystery – is core soccer stuff that the boss should carry around with him. If I were Bob Iger, I would ask for a briefing about Baby Yoda, in other words.
At the moment Iger Baby Yoda calls Baby Yoda like the rest of us. He was also honored for this by director Jon Favreau. “I was punished,” said Iger Anthony Carboni. “In my early emails to Jon Favreau, I referred to” Baby Yoda “in my emails, it seemed easy. Jon slapped my wrist a few times:” It’s not Baby Yoda! “
“I’m making an announcement,” joked Iger. “The baby’s name is not George.”
Iger appeared with Baby Yoda in a Time Magazine painting commissioned for its edition as the Iger Entrepreneur of the Year. Iger said Time asked for a photo first, and he and Disney’s rejected it, so the magazine cooked it. “I was thinking about our Christmas card this year, including this painting and the statement that we had a sixth grandchild,” the capital, “” he joked.
Based on his 45 years of experience as a television producer, Iger said he could say that Baby Yoda would be a hit with fans. “I remember times during my television career when I saw either a character or an actor playing a character that you just knew,” said Iger. “And in this particular case, it became clear to me that the child or the asset that we don’t refer to, or the asset that the world refers to, the child or the asset, that’s Baby Yoda, that’s a No no. “
Anyway, “[Baby Yoda] doesn’t have to say anything, it’s just emotes, just looks like it,” said Iger. He conceded that baby Yoda items would no longer be available on the shelves for this Christmas season, as licensors would risk exposing the character before his surprise in the first episode of The Mandalorian, which was released on November 12th in Disney Plus Premiered.
“I know a lot has been said about Christmas time, and everyone wants to buy The Child toys, etc. and they’re not really out there,” said Iger. “And that’s because if we released the design, hundreds and hundreds of people around the world would probably have done it, and we didn’t want to do that.” So people will have to wait, which I think is a good thing in this case. “
