How to make your Disney+ avatar Baby Yoda

THE MANDALORIAN Trailer (2019) Star Wars

The launch of Disney+ created a ton of buzz, from the technical difficulties that plagued its launch to the news that 10 million people signed up on the first day. It’s no surprise, considering the streaming service offers an incredible content library that includes classics from the Disney archive, the entire Pixar library, as well as movies and TV from the Marvel and Star Wars universes. But perhaps the most viral event to come out of the service thus far is the introduction to a tiny, green alien.

That’s right, we’re talking about Baby Yoda, the cutest little creature to come out of the Star Wars universe in years (or perhaps ever?). And now you can show your own appreciation for Baby Yoda (aka The Child) by choosing the little tyke as your Disney+ Avatar.

Assuming you love Baby Yoda (which, of course you do), you may be interested in expressing your love in the form of your Disney+ profile pic. Here’s how to make it happen.

How to change your Disney+ avatar

  1. Open the Disney+ app on your preferred device.
  2. Select “Profile” on the sidebar menu.
  3. Select “Edit Profiles.”
  4. Choose the profile you wish to edit.
  5. Select “Choose Icon.”
  6. Scroll to the Star Wars section (or, if you see the icon in Featured, that works too) and select Baby Yoda.
  7. Select “Done” to save your changes.

We apologize in advance for the family feud this may cause. The Child from #TheMandalorian is now available as a profile icon on #DisneyPlus.

For those unaware (and there can’t be many of you left out there), Baby Yoda was introduced by the first live-action Star Wars television series, The Mandalorian, which debuted at Disney+’s launch. The series instantly captured the hearts and minds of Star Wars fans. Considered a space Western, something that’s a little off-the-cuff for the Star Wars universe, The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal as a loner bounty hunter with a conscience. The Mandalorian may have implications for the storylines of the larger Star Wars film universe as well, making it one of the most influential pieces of Star Wars content to air off the silver screen.

However, regardless of the show’s connection to the rest of a galaxy far, far, far away, it’s clear that it has already had a massive impact on our galaxy through Baby Yoda. The adorable fifty-year-old child (species age differently!) has practically broken the internet, spawning countless memes, unstoppable conspiracy theorizing, and all of the merchandise. In these times of strife and internet-based conflict, Baby Yoda is the ultimate, unifying force for the common good. All can agree Baby Yoda is glorious.

Now you can have the coolest, cutest Disney+ profile icon in town. You’re welcome!

A long time ago, in a galaxy not so far, far away, there was only the original Star Wars movie trilogy for the sci-fi saga's fans -- no prequels, sequels, television series, animated shows, or tie-in projects to keep excitement high between big-screen adventures.

That fantastic universe created by George Lucas has expanded in some big ways in recent years with spinoff films, TV shows (both animated and live-action), and new chapters of the cinematic series. Keeping track of what's on the horizon in the Star Wars universe can be a daunting task, so we've compiled a list of all the Star Wars movies and television series you can look forward to in the near future, beginning with the most recent news and announcements.

Disney+ enrolled more than 10 million subscribers in the first 24 hours of launch.

Some streaming services have existed for years without the option to download shows and movies for offline viewing, but that functionality was available on Day 1 on Disney+. There are more than 600 titles to dive into, enough to binge hundreds of hours of The Simpsons without watching even a fifth of what’s available.

Perfect for plane rides and frugal data spenders, the service’s download function -- which is exclusive to the mobile apps as of this writing -- is so simple even Olaf could use it, and with every title eligible, it’s just a matter of figuring out what you want. Here, we’ll take you through the process of both downloading and deleting movies and shows from your Disney+ app.
