Carl Weathers wanted more Baby Yoda in ‘The Mandalorian’
The breakout star of Am Mandalorian has been Baby Yoda. So when Weathers directed “The Chorus” he wanted more Baby Yoda than the Favreau script originally included.
“That, for me, was just an amazing balance,” Weathers said. “So by getting more of it – off, because I’m not sure what gender it is and I don’t think it matters – it’s so sweet and Jon made such beautiful scenes. I was lucky to have that same vision with the child that made me happy. ”
