What sounds make up Baby Yoda?

Are you obsessed with Baby Yoda like the rest of the internet (sorry places outside of the U.S.)? Have you wondered what makes up its adorable little noises? Turns out, it’s not just baby coo’s.

Well, Supervising Sound Editor for The Mandalorian, Matthew Wood posted on Twitter the real answer.Screen Shot 2019-12-10 at 5.06.15 PM.png

A “combination of baby samples, bat-eared foxes, kinkajous, and the sound design vocal talents of David Acord.” David Acord is also a Supervising Sound Editor on The Mandalorian and both have a history with the famed Skywalker Sound dating all the way back to the prequel era.

David Acord also posted some videos of recording the animals seen here on Twitter.

Sound design is a really such a fascinating aspect of filmmaking.
