If a Star Wars fan could adopt the Grogu animatronic on display at the San Diego Comic Con this year as their own child, the paperwork would already be in motion. The sweet little green Baby Yoda is adorably lifelike with heartwarming sound effects like eating sounds and fun animated motions. The Star Wars toy’s series inspired sound effects pair perfectly with the movement of his little arms, flapping ears, and big blinking eyes.

The San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) is an annual event where fans of various genres, including comics, movies, television shows, and video games, gather to celebrate their passions. During SDCC, companies and creators often unveil new merchandise and reveal upcoming projects. The adorable Grogu animatronic was first displayed at SDCC in 2022 and generated a lot of excitement and buzz among Star Wars fans.

The Grogu animatronic is a part of Disney and Lucasfilm’s The Mandalorian exhibit on the show floor again for San Diego Comic Con 2023! Baby Yoda is the popular nickname given to a character from the Disney+ series called The Mandalorian. The character is actually known as “Grogu” or “The Child” in the show and is an infant of the same species as the beloved Star Wars character, Jedi Master Yoda. The adorable appearance and mysterious nature of the character have won the hearts of many fans.

The fully animatronic Grogu is from EFX Collectibles. Here’s what Bryan Ono, CEO/President of EFX Collectibles had to say about the animated toy.

We started this project because, as you know, [Grogu] became one of the most popular characters in Star Wars in a long, long, long time, but there was already so many really great products out there, including an animatronic type product like from Hasbro and Mattel. So what we decided to do is go, “We’re going to really step up the game and give the people really something special!”

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
