All You Need For Xmas Is Baby Yoda In Chris Evans' 'Knives Out' Jumper

Your new favourite photo.

In recent weeks, there have been two things that have taken social media by storm – Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian on Disney+ and then Chris Evans’ woollen jumper in Knives Out.

And now, those two things have come together to create 2019’s best photo: Baby Yoda wearing Chris Evans’ Knives Out jumper.

Honestly, did Baby Yoda get 10 times cuter with that jumper on?! He has clearly won the #KnivesOutChallenge where people shared photos of themselves in their own chunky knit jumpers – not much of a challenge, but hey, we’ll go with it.

I just don’t know if the AirPods are quite the right size for his huge ears, but I do like to think that he’s listening to Christmas tunes.

BossLogic often creates images of actors in superhero roles and badass movie posters, but this may just be their best work.

Considering how much of a hit Baby Yoda has become, Disney must be kicking themselves right now after they delayed releasing merchandise because they didn’t want news of the character to slip prematurely.

Now, merchandise is finally on the way to meet the huge demand from fans.

Imagine if they actually sold Baby Yoda in the Knives Out jumper, that would sell out.

Someone who isn’t into Baby Yoda, surprisingly, is Oscar Isaac, who plays Poe Dameron in the newest Star Wars trilogy.

Speaking to News.Com.Au, Isaac was asked to pick the cuter character between Baby Yoda and BB8 and he responded, “I’m not into the Baby Yoda thing.” He also added, “Kill it! Stamp it! Smoosh it!”

Co-star John Boyega (rightfully) reacted in horror, “Really?! He’s so cute!”

While BB8 is cute, there’s absolutely no way he’s cuter than Baby Yoda, I’m sorry.

'Endgame' Script Reveals Tony Stark's Last Thought And Now I'm Crying

This is heartbreaking.

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) was our first MCU hero who we loved watching over the ten years since Iron Man was first released, which made it even more heartbreaking when he died after saving the universe in Avengers: Endgame.

Despite the fact the movie came out more than six months ago, we’re still learning new things about the film, especially since Walt Disney Pictures posted the script online for Awards Consideration.

Now, we’ve found out Stark’s final thought before he died and it’s seriously heartbreaking.

It happens after Rhodey rushes to Tony, then Peter Parker tells him, “Mr. Stark…Tony…it’s okay, it’s okay…Mr. Stark, we won. You did it, sir.” In the final cut of the film, Tom Holland also says, “I’m sorry, Tony.”

Peter leaves and Pepper Potts kneels down and says, “Hey.” And Stark’s final spoken words onscreen are, “Hey, Pep.”

Friday then tells Pepper that his life functions are critical and she tells him, “Tony, look at me. We’re going to be okay…”

In the film, Stark doesn’t respond, but in the script it reads, “He stares at her, tears welling. I’m sorry.

“I’m sorry,” is his final thought as noted by the italics in the script and now I’m crying.

Pepper tells him, “You can rest now,” and gives him a kiss. The script notes, “When she pulls back she sees his eyes, fixed and glassy. Everything goes quiet. All around, OUR HEROES GATHER, the full weight of what’s happened dawning on them. Tony Stark is gone.”

Earlier in the film, Stark tried to leave the superhero game behind and live a normal life as a husband and father, so there’s no doubt that his unspoken, “I’m sorry,” was for Pepper and their daughter Morgan, who he loved very much.

Unfortunately, the Endgame writers felt that Stark had to sacrifice himself and die, while Steve Rogers AKA Captain America (Chris Evans) had to finally get a life, as Stark himself once told him.

Speaking with Vanity Fair, Stephen McFeely, who co-wrote the script, explained the reasoning behind Stark’s death, “We realized over the course of the movies that Cap and Tony were on crossing arcs. Cap, who had started as completely selfless and was jumping on grenades willy-nilly, was becoming more self-interested. Not to say selfish, but if you watch Civil War, particularly, he’s making decisions based on what he wants, even if it breaks up the Avengers.

“And Tony started as the brash billionaire playboy, and the stakes are growing for him, the responsibilities growing for him. We realized at one point, late in 2015, that for Steve to be his best self, he was going to have to get a life, and for Tony to be his best self, he might have to lose his.”

Co-director Joe Russo also explained why they couldn’t kill both Stark and Rogers in an interview with Empire, saying, “Once you kill a beloved character like [Tony], you’ve got to have hope at the end of the movie in some regard, and the only person to give you that hope is the other co-lead.

“Had we killed both the leads, I feel like people would have been walking out into traffic after the film. The intention is not to destroy people, it’s to hopefully tell a complex and dimensionalised story in a way, that makes them feel a varied range of emotion.”

Stark learned how to be selfless over the course of the MCU and made the ultimate sacrifice for the universe when he snapped Thanos and his army away.
