Take a peek at the art that inspired Chapter 11, "The Heiress."


The Mandalorian Chapter 11 saw Mando get caught up in a space piracy adventure with fellow Mandalorian Bo Katan Kryze.


Here are 11 images that show exactly how "The Heiress" came to be, including one Baby Yoda moment that sadly didn't make it into the episode.

While Mando was off on his adventure, Baby Yoda was with the Frog People and got to meet someone even more Baby than him — this little tadpole.
