If Baby Yoda can make it here, he can make it anywhere. The adorable green Force-wielder from the Disney Plus "Star Wars" series "The Mandalorian" soared over Broadway in Funko Pop form during the 95th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday (Nov. 25). (You can actually score a Funko Pop version of the Baby Yoda balloon, complete with his toy metal ball, for $30 at Funko.com and find more Black Friday Star Wars deals for your fans at home.) But Baby Yoda wasn't the only cosmic character to drop in on the turkey day event. Stormtroopers and an augmented reality float (complete with the Millennium Falcon) also made in an appearance along to promote the new VR game "Star Wars: Tales from The Galaxy's Edge" on Oculus Quest, which you can get with a $50 voucher in this Black Friday deal, and a giant Snoopy decked out in a NASA spacesuit floated behind a float of his Peanuts friends, bobbing just like you'd expect in zero gravity. "Oh no! Stormtroopers have Seezelslak and a porg captive! And look what's swooping in to this year's Macy's Parade to save them: the Millennium Falcon!" Macy's wrote on Twitter.
