There are many reasons to be thankful this time of the year and Werner Herzog deserves all of our blessing after he reportedly saved Baby Yoda from becoming just another bad CGI character.
News came out today that the creators of The Mandalorian were strongly considering replacing the real baby yoda prop with a CGI version, unitl Herzog told them to keep and called them cowards for even considering the change.
An excerpt from the Vanity Fair article does into more detail about the exchange.

The Herzog and Baby Yoda bromance is not what we expected but we are happy to enjoy it. So thank you Werner for having the strength to speak up and have your voice heard, we commend you.
