Bryce Dallas Howard's Children Had An Impact On Baby Yoda in 'The Mandalorian'

You can thank Bryce Dallas Howard‘s children for that soup sipping Baby Yoda moment in The Mandalorian.

The 39-year-old filmmaker revealed during the ATX Festival (via Page Six) that her kids, Theodore and Beatrice, were always asking about Baby Yoda during filming of the first season.

Bryce shared that her kids would often come to the set with her and were always asking about Baby Yoda, which led to the iconic meme of Baby Yoda sipping soup.

“My kids were on set pretty much every day,” she said. “Even before we came to set, when it was the storyboards for the episode… when we were just conceiving of things, my [then-six] daughter would come into the editing room and whenever Baby [Yoda] wasn’t on screen, she would lean over to me and be like, ‘Where’s Baby? Where’s Baby? Where’s Baby?’ [Executive producer] Jon [Favreau] picked up on that, like, ‘Oh yeah — if the kid is wondering where Baby is, then we need to know where Baby is at all times.’

Bryce continued, “There was something with the kids where Baby was very real and Baby was in danger and they needed to see where Baby was at all times… They needed to know Baby was safe, and from that a variety of moments came up that were constructed just because we wanted everyone to know Baby was safe.”

If you missed it, there will apparently be Baby Yoda cereal coming this summer!
