It s hard to believe a series as pleasantly predictable as theDisney+ Star Warsseries The Mandalorian would ever be mired in controversy. But, alas, that s exactly what happened early in Season2 when on some unfertilized frog eggs in Episode 2, "The Passenger." The eggs in question belonged to Frog Lady, a passenger hitching a ride on the Razor Crest so she could reunite with her husband. Frog Lady was transporting precious cargo: Unfertilized eggs that were the last of her line. Needless to say, protecting the eggs was of the utmost importance; Baby Yoda, a literal50-year-old toddler, had other plans. Motivated by the primal need to satiate his hunger, this child ate Frog Lady s eggs somethingThe Mandalorianteam playedto be funny and intentionally disturbing but wasmostly just disturbing.
It is time to discuss the bad thing the baby did.
Given the fact that Baby Yoda s egg-eating scandal has now become a hot-button issue all across the galaxy, it was only a matter of time beforeaStar Warsalum would finally weigh in andgive their opinions on the alien child sinfraction. ThatStar Warsalum ended up beingDaisy Ridley, an avid fan ofThe Mandalorianwho shared her thoughts about that Baby Yoda plot point while chatting with IGN about her upcoming movie,Chaos Walking.
When the topic was raised, theStar Warsactor jokingly reacted with, "Oh, cancel culture. Look, Mandos gotta eat, Yoda s got to get strong. That s just that," before goingon to say, "I m like, Yoda, do your thing. The creature [Frog Lady] got to be where she needed to be with the eggs. It s all good. It was beautiful."

However, Ridley seems perfectly satisfied with the place Rey ended up at the end ofStar Wars - Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker. As she told IGN, "I think for me the beauty of Episode IX is it ends with such hope and such potential. I just feel like that was Rey s perfect ending. The big battle was in Episodes VII, VIII, and IX. I think really she s probably running around the forest somewhere having a great time [after the events of The Rise of Skywalker]."
