NewsSkins inspired by Mandalorian and Baby Yoda would reach the battle royale, according to leaks
The Mandalorian is one of most popular series from the past few months and may be part of the Battle Pass theme of Fortnite’s fifth season. Characters like Mandalorian and Baby Yoda would be game skins, as certain profiles point out.
“Lucas7yoshi“, a famous leaker in the community, showed a promotional image where the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda’s are highlighted – the little alien’s head is visible in the floating capsule on the right. Other skins not related to the series complement the illustration.

Earlier this month, a dataminer discovered that Epic Games would have partnered with Disney +: anyone who spends money on battle royale could win a two-month subscription to the service, if they don’t already have one. That’s why it’s not so surprising to see Disney character skins in the game.
Players also speculate that the image signifies the arrival of a season themed in Star Wars (or The Mandalorian , specifically), just like the current one, this one turned to the Marvel universe.
Fortnite and Star Wars
This would not be the first time Fortnite has collaborated with the Star Wars franchise. In the past, Epic Games has already launched lightsabers and other cosmetics related to Episode IX, 2019, in the battle royale.
