The Star Wars Kids channel unveiled a new animated short series today called Galactic Pals! This series is similar it’s previous series Star Wars Galaxy of Creatures
However, this series focuses on a droid named M1-RE that seems to have a daycare. She cares for several cute creatures including nonsentient beings like Tookas, but also sentient children. The first two episodes focus on a wookiee and an ewok.
But not only that, there are now 4 plush Star Wars “Galactic Pals” you can call your own. That means, yes, you can have a baby Rodian. Personally, I like the Jawa best.
Personally, I wish there was a plush of the baby Hutt. I don’t know how you can’t love Rotta or any other baby Hutt. They’re just too cute!
Don’t get me wrong. I love porgs like crazy. And I love Grogu. And adorable Star Wars Lego minifigs. But I love weird cute stuff too such as the Jawas.
Heck, I’d love a baby Tusken person.
Anyways, the first two episodes center on a Ewok and a Wookiee.
You can watch the introduction here.
Anyways, I want a plush of the baby Hutt the most. Look at those pretty frog eyes! Also, there is a tauntaun calf in this. So it seems like either the droids make little distinction between sentient children and baby animals, or it’s just a daycare/petting zoo. Which, by the way, is rather awesome. I wish my daycares had been petting zoos.
I have to say, it’s been amazing watching Rodians go from being the alien that Han Solo shot, to being cute kids and infants that people want to put alongside the usual sort of cute toys like Ewoks.
I would also not be surprised if Star Wars Galactic Pals has a tie-in children’s book. Galaxy of Creatures had one.
