In Friday’s episode of The Mandalorian on Disney Plus, Mando (Pedro Pascal) and Child Yoda find yourself touring with Frog Woman, an amphibian who’s making an attempt to get her (unfertilized) eggs safely by house to assist her species survive. However to Child Yoda, the way forward for the Frog Woman’s species merely appears to be like like a bar-side jar filled with tasty treats. Child Yoda’s been recognized to eat some bizarre issues, but it surely’s a bit troubling to see him gorging down a species’ future hopes.

So troubling, actually, that Phil Szostak, Lucasfilm inventive artwork supervisor, felt the necessity to tweet a protection.

“For the document, Chapter 10 of The Mandalorian makes it clear that the Frog Woman’s eggs are unfertilized, just like the hen eggs many people take pleasure in,” he wrote. “However clearly, chickens aren’t sentient beings and the Baby consuming the eggs is deliberately disturbing, for comedic impact.”

However some followers nonetheless objected. 

“For the document, the frog woman was very adamant about the truth that her eggs have been necessary to her, and that it was her final and solely likelihood to have children,” one Twitter consumer wrote. “So it is truly nearer to fucking up somebody’s IVF, which might be extremely upsetting for a wannabe mother. it is not humorous.”

However The Mandalorian will not be precisely a children’ present, one other fan identified.

“The place’s the sympathy for the poor ice-spider mother whose younger Child Yoda additionally ate after which received lasered/incinerated together with the remainder of her brood for making an attempt to defend it?” the Twitter consumer wrote. “(Level being that is Star Wars, not My Little Pony.)”

Disturbing or not, there’s additionally a Funko Pop figurine that includes Baby Yoda with the Frog Lady’s egg canister — and he does not look to have discovered something from Mando’s fixed warnings to steer clear.
