Firefighters have unleashed a new weapon in the fight against forest fires that have spread across the western U.S. in recent weeks.
That weapon? The smallest and most adorable Force user in the Star Wars universe.
For those not familiar with the tiny Baby Yoda, he took the world by storm after his 2019 debut in season one of Disney's The Mandalorian. In the show, the masked Mandalorian warrior defends Baby Yoda from a myriad of bounty hunters and mercenaries who mysteriously want him dead.
Earlier this month, 5-year-old Carver from Oregon donated a Baby Yoda doll to firefighters as part of a drive for local fire stations.
Carver wrote a note and sent the doll on its way.
Baby Yoda has made the rounds from fire to fire in multiple states – including Oregon, Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, Idaho, and Utah – giving moral support to firefighters on the front lines. A Facebook page called "Baby Yoda fights fires" has tracked his journeys, and here are a few of the awesome pictures:
Between fighting forest fires and returning for season two of The Mandalorian in October, it's safe to say Baby Yoda is saving 2020 one small step at a time.
This is the way.
