Baby Yoda Returns To Promote ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ – Deadline

Baby Yoda (Kyle Mooney) returned to SNL‘s weekend update tonight to promote Disney+’s series Obi-Wan Kenobi and his own “spiritual” awakening.

“What’s up, Baby Yoda?…You’ve got a new vibe,” host Michael Che asked him at the start of the segment.

“Life is all good Michael, real good,” said Baby Yoda. “Of course, season 3 of I send coming – blah, blah, blah, blah, work, work, work.”

Baby Yoda added that it has also been “a very enlightening time” for him as he is now “spiritual”.

“That’s right. You’ve studied the ways of the Force, haven’t you?” asked Che.

“Okay relax nerd,” Baby Yoda replied. “Do you know what an ayahuasca retreat is?”

Baby Yoda explained that he actually did, “but with a bunch of pills and a week” – and instead of having a spirit guide walk him through it, his “boy Tom Holland stepped on the aux cable.”

“Sounds like a great time,” Che said. “Just make sure you stay safe, man.”

“No, don’t tell me what to do,” Baby Yoda snapped. “But yeah, I feel really peaceful these days — I come in crystals, rain sticks, spicy guacamole.”

He noted that he has even started building a community of “highly conscious individuals,” which also includes Jared Leto, Santana with Rob Thomas, Bob the Builder, and Tila Tequila.

“Sounds like a good squad, dude,” Che said.

“Yeah, it’s a cult,” Baby Yoda admitted. “But look, I love everyone, man, even my haters.”

“Real?” Che wondered. “Because you’ve had some strong words for one hater in particular over the years.”

“Yes, that’s true, but I’m older now,” said Baby Yoda, “and I just want to say, Baby Groot, I know we had our problems. But I mean this from the bottom of my heart: I really, really don’t like you.”

Baby Yoda told Baby Groot that the next time he looks like him, he’ll chop him down “like Paul Bunyan”, sprinkle him on his blunt and smoke him. “That said, I love you,” said Baby Yoda, “and I’m always here for you.”

Also featured on Updating tonight was field correspondent Sarah Sherman, who led a studio tour as she perpetuated her feud with anchor Colin Jost. Watch clips from tonight’s edition of Updating below.
