Star Wars: Baby Yoda Puppeteer Debunks $5 Million Price Tag

As it turns out, the Baby Yoda puppet from Disney+’s Star Wars: The Mandalorian doesn’t actually cost a ridiculous amount of money. At Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim on Saturday, John Rosengrant of Legacy Effects debunked the report that the series’ Grogu puppet cost $5 million dollars to create and revealed how that remarkable sum came to be taken as “fact”.

“It started with the greatest rumor of all time, which is absolutely not true,” Rosengrant said. “I would have retired ages ago if this was true, but to get them to stop mistreating the Baby, Jon told them, ‘Stop it. You can’t keep hitting it, it cost $5 million.’ And then of course, one of those guys went to the press and the next thing you know, the Baby cost $5 million. Trust me, it did not.”

The story stems back to the 2020 TCA Winter Press Tour when actor Adam Pally, who played one of the Scout Troopers who punched Baby Yoda in the Season 1 finale of The Mandalorian, recounted the story as well as how being told the puppet’s cost made him nervous.

“I remember the first take that I did when I punched it,” Pally said. “They called ‘cut’ and Jon, who was watching on a monitor in his office, came down and said, ‘I just want to let you know that this is the hero [expensive puppet] and it costs like $5 million. I want you to hit it, but I want you to know that.'”

He then went on to explain how the revelation of the cost made him so nervous that he missed his punches for the next three takes. But while Baby Yoda — or Grogu, as is his proper name — isn’t quite that expensive to make, Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy recently revealed that the studio was initially cautious about bringing the character to life in The Mandalorian.
