'The Mandalorian' Season 2 joke trailer shows Teen Yoda smoking weed to mark 4/20, fans confused
On April 20, a video claiming to be the trailer for 'The Mandalorian' Season 2 was released online, exciting the show's extensive fanbase. Unfortunately, the clip was an elaborate 4/20 joke, ending with a teenaged Baby Yoda (Teen Yoda?) smoking pot on the RazorCrest
Baby Yoda from 'The Mandalorian' has become an online sensation since the show's debut on Disney+ and it looks like people are still capitalizing on the young alien's popularity, with varying degrees of success.
On April 20, a video claiming to be the trailer for 'The Mandalorian' Season 2 was released online, exciting the show's extensive fanbase.
Unfortunately, the clip was an elaborate 4/20 joke, ending with a teenaged Baby Yoda (Teen Yoda?) smoking pot on the RazorCrest. We have to admit it is a little funny clip but the legions of fans who flocked to the video expecting some exciting new content from the upcoming season were definitely not amused.
"Not gonna lie I was convinced it was real until the child flipped off Mando," one fan commented on the video on YouTube. "I'm glad it was fake because if the child (who'd now be called the teen) looked like that I don't think I'd be able to stand watching the show."
It also appears some of the fans actually thought this was the actual trailer. "Omfg am I the only one who thought this was the actual trailer for some reason?!?," one fan wrote while another said, "Am ashamed at how long it took me to find out this was a joke."
The uploader eventually responded to the negative comments writing, "If you were upset by this video, might I advise you to, uh, 'celebrate' the holiday, wait half an hour, watch it again and let us know how you feel about it after that."
In any case, we're all pretty glad that this wasn't the real trailer and we can't wait to see what the new season will bring to the show. And considering it took the child 50 years to become a toddler, we're pretty sure he won't be a teen by then, though whether he'll be smoking pot or not is anybody's guess.
'The Mandalorian' Season 2 is scheduled to arrive in the Fall of 2020.
