George Lucas met Baby Yoda and sci-fi fans on social media pretty much exploded with joy.
Jon Favreau didn’t caption the cute image, but frankly, he didn’t have to, and the photo immediately went viral.
And Twitter users were more than happy to chime in on the encounter between the originator of the space opera franchise and its newest adorable addition:

Get you a person who looks at you the way the person in the background wearing a jacket looks at George Lucas looking at Baby Yoda. https://t.co/dGMiKBTryA— Aura Bogado (@aurabogado) January 17, 2020

"George we need it for shooting."
"No it's mine now."
"George please we need to film."
"Make another one this one is mine."
"George come back please!"

The pic is blurry so I assume George Lucas was trying to steal Baby Yoda and they snapped this mid run... pic.twitter.com/91TXvJo9zn— Film Is Life (@TrapCinephile) January 17, 2020
