The Mandalorian’s Grogu is back and larger than life. Today we learned that Baby Yoda would be the first Star Wars character to take flight in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. This is the way.
Fans of the cute little guy will be able to see a massive Funko Pop!-inspired balloon float of Grogu during this year’s 95th annual parade. Baby Yoda isn’t a small balloon either, coming in at 41-feet high, 37-feet-wide, and 29-feet-long. So it’s safe to say you’ll be able to see the force-welding creature from a very far distance.

Tune in to see Grogu when Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade airs nationwide on NBC, Thursday, November 25, from 9 a.m. to noon in all time zones. If you miss it this year, don’t worry, because he’ll be appearing in the parade for the next three years.
Furthermore, it looks like Funko Pop! will be offering the same version of Grogu ‘Baby Yoda’ from the parade in several different collectibles. The Pop comes in two different variants, not to mention a keychain and T-shirt. The Funko Pop! Deluxe will run $35, and you can use the link below to grab one whenever it becomes available.
