Google has the cutest Mandalorian Easter egg

Season 3 of The Mandalorian just launched on Disney+. Mando is back, of course. So are Bo-Katan and Greef Karga. Cara Dune is not. And, of course, Grogu is back doing Grogu things.

And that includes a wonderful little Google Easter egg, staring The Child himself. (Itself? Whatever.) Here’s how to interact with it and have a little fun while you’re searching.

Using Google, search for “The Mandalorian.” Give the results a second or two to load, and then turn your attention to the bottom right corner. There you’ll see Grogu hanging out, moving ever so slightly in his cutesy Grogu way. (Can he ever sit still? Or if he does, should we worry?) This works on your phone as well as in a desktop web browser.

Click on Grogu and he’ll start to use the Force on search results — which really isn’t anything any of us in the publishing industry have had to deal with before. With the first click, Grogu takes down the Wikipedia listing, which is something I’ve wanted to do any number of times. Click him again, and the “Top Stories” box is next to fall. A third click kills the “People also ask” results, which is funny in its own right. A fourth click sends the cast listing flying.

Grogu continues working his way down the page from there. IMDB. Disney+. Character listings. Mandalorian trailers and clips. Tweets from Twitter. (In before someone tries to say that Grogu is using the Force to silence critics with this little stunt.)

It’s a fun little Google Easter egg, and a much-needed moment of online levity.

The first two seasons of The Mandalorian are available now on Disney+, with the third season streaming new episodes weekly. Disney+ is available on every major streaming platform, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Google TV, Android TV, on various smart TV platforms, and in a web browser. Disney+ costs $8 a month if you don’t mind ads, or $13 a month if you want to get rid of ads. Or you can get the Disney Bundle — which includes ESPN+ and Hulu — for $20 a month.

Moff Gideon smiles in The Mandalorian.

All good things come to an end: the MCU being good, Gwyneth Paltrow's ski trial, and now, season 3 of The Mandalorian. After a two-year hiatus that seemed to last forever, The Mandalorian has triumphantly returned to the small screen. The groundbreaking show proved the Star Wars franchise can work just as well, if not better, on the small screen than in movie theatres, and helped pave the way for successful follow-up series like The Book of Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the superb Andor.

Because it has been a while, audiences may have forgotten certain specific details about the show or just where and when to watch it. Digital Trends is here with a handy guide to The Mandalorian season 3, including when you can watch episode 8, as well as plot details, trailers, and much more.

The Mandalorian really didn’t hold back this week.

The penultimate episode of the Disney+ series' third season, titled The Spies, takes more than a few shocking turns. Not only does it open with the long-awaited return of Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito), but it also ends with the Imperial warlord taking Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) hostage and launching a deadly ambush on Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff) and her Mandalorian followers. In case that wasn’t bad enough, it’s also revealed in the episode that Moff Gideon has been hiding out on Mandalore all along — mining its precious resources and building a secret Imperial base.
