Jon Favreau is a child at heart.
He helped Kevin Feige kickstart the MCU by directing Iron Man (a film he also stars in as the beloved Happy Hogan), he has created two of the best Disney live-action remakes so far, The Jungle Book (2016) and The Lion King (2019), and now he’s been given access to the Star Wars sandbox, he’s created a TV show which centres around a Baby Yoda.
A BABY YODA.

Jon Favreau: “I would like to create a Star Wars TV series and I would like to introduce a Baby Yoda in it.”
Disney Board: *Thinks about the extra Disney Plus subscribers* *Thinks about the merch sales* *Thinks about the organic social marketing*
Also Disney Board: “How does a 100 million dollar budget sound?”
That’s what you call a smooth transaction.
