Is Baby Yoda the real Yoda?

Contrary to what his nickname would suggest, Baby Yoda is not the real Yoda, as he is not a baby version of the character Yoda from the Star Wars series. Instead, Baby Yoda is a character known as The Child from The Mandalorian series, who belongs to the same alien species as Yoda but is not necessarily related to the green sage.

The Child got the affectionate nickname of Baby Yoda as he looks like a young version of the famous character. Baby Yoda is fifty years old, which makes him a baby in his species, as the original Yoda lived to be 900.

Baby Yoda actually has his own given name, but fans will have to wait to find out what it is. Bob Iger, CEO of the Walt Disney Company, revealed that he knows Baby Yoda's "real name" but wouldn't divulge any information—other than it isn't Yoda or George, after George Lucas.
