What’s the deal with the red-eyed Jawas? I know that their action figures refer to them as “Offworld Jawas”, but I thought we were on Tatooine? It’s a minor quibble, but I was a little bothered by the apparent arbitrariness of it.

EDIT: Never mind, the desert planet on the show is Arvala-7. If anyone said its name I must have missed it, and then assumed it was Tatooine because of how it looked from space.

Herzog agrees that the baby Yoda puppet is remarkable: in an interview he described it as “heartbreakingly beautiful,” and at some point during filming when Filoni and Favreau tried to shoot an extra take of a scene with baby Yoda without the puppet so that they’d have the option to use CGI, Herzog called them “cowards” and accused them of having no faith in their own creation (I saw this in a screenshot from a magazine article on Reddit, I’m having trouble tracking it down again).
