George Lucas met Baby Yoda and social media users exploded with joy.

The “Star Wars” creator held the little green dude from “The Mandalorian” spinoff in a blurry picture that the Disney Plus series’ showrunner Jon Favreau shared online late Thursday:

Favreau didn’t caption the cute image that immediately went viral.

But Twitter users were more than happy to chime in on the encounter between the originator of the space opera franchise and its newest adorable creature:

Get you a person who looks at you the way the person in the background wearing a jacket looks at George Lucas looking at Baby Yoda.

Ever since he sold Star Wars every photo of George Lucas is blurry because he has transcended cinema and 1/24th of a second can no longer capture him

This is truly amazing because he looks as if he was looking at his new born child. This photo is legendary.

The pic is blurry so I assume George Lucas was trying to steal Baby Yoda and they snapped this mid run…
