‘SNL’s Weekend Update: Baby Yoda Returns To Promote ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’, Talks Up “Spiritual” Awakening

Baby Yoda (Kyle Mooney) is back SNL‘s Weekend Update Tonight to promote Disney+’s series Obi-Wan Kenobic And his own “spiritual” awakening.

“What’s going on, Baby Yoda? … you have a new vibe,” anchor Michael Che asked him at the start of the segment.

“Life is all good Michael, the original Well,” said Baby Yoda. “Of course, season 3 mando Coming up – blah, blah, blah, blah, work, work, work.”

Baby Yoda said it has also been “a very enlightening time” for him as he is “spiritual” now.

“That’s right. You studied the methods of the Force, didn’t you?” asked Che.

“Okay, relax,” replied Baby Yoda. “You know what an ayahuasca retreat is?”

Baby Yoda explained that he originally did it, “but with a bunch of pills and weeks”—and instead of a spiritual guide walking through it, his “boy Tom Holland aux got on the cable.”

“It sounds like a great time,” Che said. “Just make sure you stay safe, man.”

“No, don’t tell me what to do,” said Baby Yoda. “But yeah, I’m feeling really peaceful these days—getting into the crystals, the raindrops, the spicy guacamole.”

He notes that he has also begun to build a community of “very minded individuals”, including Jared Leto, Santana including Rob Thomas, Bob the Builder and Tila Tequila.

“It sounds like a good crew, man,” Che said.

“Yeah, it’s a cult,” Baby Yoda admitted. “But look, I love everybody, man, even my haters.”

“Really?” Che thought. “Because you have some strong words especially for a hater over the years.”

“Yeah, that’s true, but I’m all grown up now,” said Baby Yoda, “and I just want to say, Baby Groot, I know we had our issues. But I mean it from the bottom of my heart.” From: I really, really don’t like you.”

Baby Yoda tells Baby Groot that the next time he appears to her, he will bite her “like Paul Bunyan”, sprinkle it on his blunt and smoke it. “That being said, I love you,” said Baby Yoda, “and I’ve always got your back.”
