10 lessons to learn from Baby Yoda while you’re in self-isolation

The Big Issue magazine is helping you get more out of The Mandalorian’s cutest mascot

If your week in quarantine is only being lifted by Friday’s trip to a galaxy far, far away, The Big Issue has a treat for you.

Our cover star this week is The Child, better known on the internet as Baby Yoda, as we celebrate the true hero of the Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandolorian to get us through self-isolation blues.

But Baby Yoda’s mood-lifting impact is not only restricted to the eponymous Mando, his teachings can have real-world implications too.

Every wondered what Baby Yoda can teach you about about food waste?

Or the importance of looking after your parents?


Our vendors buy every copy of the magazine from us for £1.25 and sell it on to you for £2.50. Which is why we ask you to ALWAYS take your copy of the magazine. We believe in trade not aid.

Or the power of soup?

Plus we track down the original Yoda to the Caribbean where he’s spending his retirement with Nick Maley, one of the Star Wars team who helped create the animatronic puppet.

Reveal all, The Big Issue will.
