Just a few months ago, it was announced that The Mandalorian’s Din Djarin, AKA “Mando,” and Grogu, AKA “Baby Yoda,” would be the latest Star Wars characters to be introduced to Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge experience. And this week, they finally arrived.
A video shared by Theme Park Insider Scott Gustin shows the “Mando” and “Baby Yoda” making their entrance and a rendezvous with his friend, Boba Fett, to a very excited audience.

However, instead of introducing the Disney+ duo to the Themed Land with a controlled “meet and greet,” they made their appearance the same as all of the other characters and stormtroopers. And it appears that the character-handling Cast Members had their work cut out for them as they helped give the bounty hunter some personal space.

At the time of this publication, Star Wars fans can only see Mando and Grogu at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland Park in California. It is unclear if or when they will be added to the Black Spire Outpost in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
Disneyland Resort describes Black Spire Outpost on its website as the following:
On the edge of the galaxy, between the Unknown Regions and Wild Space, there is a long-forgotten planet named Batuu.
Batuu’s largest village is a settlement known as Black Spire Outpost, which has become a thriving destination for those who would prefer to go about their business unnoticed—scoundrels, rogues, smugglers and, recently, whispers in the woods reporting sightings of individuals associated with the Resistance.
News of the Resistance has drawn the attention of the First Order, eager to stomp out any remaining flickers of opposition to their absolute control.
Amid this brewing conflict, sits an exotic outpost surrounded by a beautiful landscape dominated by the petrified remains of towering ancient trees, from which Black Spire Outpost draws its name. The modern village is built on the remains of crumbling structures built by a long-extinct civilization.
Now you are invited to visit this beautiful and treacherous village of secrets, built upon secrets.
Both seasons of Star Wars: The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett are now available for streaming on Disney+.
