Din Djarin and Grogu have never been cuter than their portrayal in The Mandalorian and Child, a fresh Star Wars publication by illustrator Jeffrey Brown. Brown, known for crafting the equally charming Star Wars books “Darth Vader and Son” and “Vader’s Little Princess,” brings his distinctive style and wit to reenvision the narrative of the Disney+ series, The Mandalorian. Lucasfilm Publishing, via, has unveiled a sneak peek at the book’s cover (which I need a large print of for H’s room!) and some of Brown’s interior artwork. These pages showcase beloved characters from The Mandalorian, including IG-11, Kuill, the upcoming prominent figure Ahsoka Tano, and even the baby Rancor from The Book of Boba Fett.

In anticipation of the release, Brown shared, “Years before the Mandalorian series premiered, someone asked me to draw Yoda as a baby, so I just drew him in a diaper. I had no idea that someday I’d get to watch a show with ‘Baby Yoda’ — but I’ve enjoyed seeing Grogu become so much more than that,” Brown continued, “Getting to construct my own take on Mando and Grogu is refreshingly fun, and the way their relationship mixes friendship and family is the kind of heartwarming feels I love to put in my work. Especially when it comes to drawing IG droids, stormtroopers, rancors, and Boba Fett, of course!”

Michael Siglain, Lucasfilm Publishing’s creative director, expressed his excitement, saying, “We are beyond thrilled to welcome Jeffrey Brown back into a galaxy far, far away… Like with Vader and Son and all of his subsequent and adorable titles, Jeffrey brings his signature style and smart sense of humor to the world of The Mandalorian, and the result is both heartfelt and hilarious. Fans of the show and fans of Jeffrey’s earlier books are in for a real treat!”

Don’t miss the sneak peek below. The Mandalorian and Child will be available for purchase on November 7th and is available to pre-order now.
