Disney Plus Adds Baby Yoda to Gallery of Profile Icons
Good news for Disney+ fans—the streaming service has added the baby from “The Mandalorian” aka, Baby Yoda to its gallery of profile icons. The nod is well deserved as the miniature character has become the breakout star of the show, stealing the hearts of fans all over and instantly becoming a beloved meme on social media.
Baby Yoda joins hundreds of other characters—including Moana, Simba, Darth Vader, Mickey Mouse and Olaf—that subscribers can use for their individual profiles. Disney+ allows for up to seven profiles so different users to have their own recommendations and watch list for their account.
“The Mandalorian” debuted when Disney+ plus launched on Nov. 12. The series immediately became a hit, taking the No. 3 spot on a ranking of the most in-demand digital originals among U.S. viewers, Variety reported. According to data from Parrot Analytics, the series garnered 40 million “demand expressions,” and had stronger U.S. demand than some of 2019’s biggest streaming originals — Netflix’s “The Umbrella Academy,” “When They See Us” and “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance,” as well as Amazon Prime Video’s “Good Omens” — in its first four days.
