Taking your kid to the Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge theme park is the ultimate “cool dad” move. Logan, one such cool dad, took his son there, and wow, we can’t repel cuteness of this magnitude. Logan asked to be referred to only by his first name for this story.
Logan’s son (also named Logan) got to have the time of his life at Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland. The two had been to the theme park before, but this was little Logan’s first time going dressed as none other than the Mandalorian himself from the Disney+ hit live-action TV series, The Mandalorian.
Not only did little Logan get to show up in full Mandalorian cosplay (that his dad made), he also got to live a Star Wars fan’s dream: Meeting Star Wars hero, Rey, and her adversary, Kylo Ren.
Just a little Mandalorian, walking down the street holding Rey’s hand. Sorry, but content more wholesome than this simply doesn’t exist. Logan told Mashable he crafted his son’s Mandalorian costume himself.
“The armor is 3D printed,” he said. “Painted and weathered everything.” He sewed the rest of it together. And as if it weren’t realistic enough, little Logan also carried around his own Baby Yoda, because what’s a Mandalorian without his Baby Yoda?
Little Logan also had a run-in with the villain of the sequel trilogy, Kylo Ren. Kylo, in full recruitment mode, tasked Logan with a secret mission: Help locate a Resistance spy hiding in the outpost.
“You should be proud to serve the First Order,” Kylo tells him before a stormtrooper officially welcomes him in.
Noooo, Baby Mando! Don’t go to the Dark Side!
But perhaps the clever little Mandalorian was only lying to gain Kylo’s trust. When two stormtroopers stopped to ask him if he’d seen anything resembling a Resistance leader, he simply shrugged and shook his head.
Move along, troopers. Move along. Looks like little Logan is the Resistance hero the galaxy needed, after all.
