The world is obsessed with “Baby Yoda” (it’s not really Yoda, though, sadly) and it’s not surprising. He’s cute, he’s wise, and he’s a symbol of all that is good and pure in this world. But Baby Yoda has a competitor — or a brand new sandbox friend? — in the form of Baby Jabba.
What, you cry out, is Baby Jabba? Good question!
A fan art version of Baby Jabba is circling the web after a Twitter user @mangheauxxx, shared the kind of adorable (shhh, don’t tell) sluggy creation by 3D artist Leonardo Viti for all to fawn over:
You guys…BABY JABBA pic.twitter.com/Y65dwCBxSJ

Look, we all know how evil the organized crime lord is but as a baby? He’s shockingly kind of cute.
You can’t hold his future self against the tiny baby sluggy blubber Hutt, can you?

In fact, some people had downright violent reactions against Baby Jabba:

Most people also thought Baby Jabba resembled the baby from Dinosaurs, so there were a lot of “Not the mama!” references:

The very first thought that came to me was the baby from Dinosaurs!

And some folks referenced this Baby Jabba rendering, which apparently came first:

He’d look more like this, but I like your version better. pic.twitter.com/ZJheHFW1CY

Some people were slightly horrified even though they secretly found Baby Jabba a little bit cute:
I can’t tell if he’s really cute or really gross.

Oh and while you’re here, the Twitter user who originally shared the art has a message:

The original artist, Leonardo Viti, was so touched by the love he received from his creation, and thanked his supporters:

He still got a lot of hate in his comments, but at least we know where people stand when it comes to good against evil!
