I’m not gonna lie — I haven’t watched The Mandalorian yet. And welp, the first couple of times I briefly overheard people talking about the Star Wars spinoff, I thought the show was about someone named Amanda Lori-Anne. But even though I don’t have Disney+, I cannot avoid the ubiquity of Baby Yoda. And why would I want to? That little creature is easily the cutest thing Lucasfilm has put its name on in years (no offense, Babu Frik), and I somehow relate to most of the 80 kajillion Baby Yoda memes even though they’re based on screenshots of scenes I’ve never seen. (And that’s probably a good thing since the memes are all but inescapable on social media.)
Well, Baby Yoda is about to become ever more relatable to those of us who love beauty, because Baby Yoda beauty products are apparently on the way. Inside the Magic, a blog about all things Disney (which all things Star Wars now are), noticed that Lucasfilm has submitted at least 28 trademark applications for a wide swath of Baby Yoda merchandise — under the more official names of “The Child” and “The Mandalorian The Child” — and among the figurines, mugs, and hoodies found Baby Yoda cosmetics.
The two beauty-related applications, submitted on December 11 and December 23 by Lucasfilm, seek a standard character mark on nonmedicated cosmetics, nonmedicated dentifrices (a fancy way of saying “toothpaste”), nonmedicated toiletry preparations, and perfumes. “Nonmedicated cosmetics” and “nonmedicated toiletry preparations” are clearly very broad categories that could include anything from lipstick to body lotion to false lashes. And let’s not kid ourselves: They would fly off the shelves faster than you can say Din Djarin (which might actually take a while to say if you’re anything like me and aren’t sure how to pronounce it because you, too, haven’t watched The Mandalorian).
There’s no word yet on when Baby Yoda beauty products will be launched, if ever (trademark applications often cover all conceivable bases to ensure no one else can take a certain name for their own products). But considering the official Shop Disney store is now overflowing with The Child merch, we wouldn’t be surprised if some Baby Yoda lip balm popped up real soon (and we’re hoping just so!)
