STAR WARS fans have melted over how cute baby Jabba the Hutt is.
Since Baby Yoda's appearance on Disney+'s The Mandalorian the memes have been coming in thick and fast over the adorable creation – but now sci-fi fans can't contain their excitement because slug-like alien Jabba has been added to the collection.
Leonardo Viti – an artist who specialises in 3D character development and has 15k followers on Instagram – is the person behind the new creation.
Baby Yoda took the internet by storm late last year and won over the hearts of fans after it was made into an endless amount of memes – and suffice to say he's now got some stiff competition.
Leo shared the cutie on Instagram and captioned the post: "The little Jabba is really happy for all the love he received here is a short turntable video."
The post shows how cute the younger version of the galaxy's most powerful gangster is with a 360 degree view of him sticking his tongue out – and Leo has even the added a small amount of slobber to make it extra realistic.

Fans of Disney's The Mandalorian won't have to wait much longer for Baby Yoda to return for a second series after director Jon Faverau revealed it will hit our screens later this year.
The first season aired on November 12, 2019 and was followed by a further seven episodes.
Jon took to Twitter to share the exciting news that the spin-off will be released in Autumn 2020.
He wrote: "Season 2 of #TheMandalorian coming Fall 2020" alongside a picture of a new character that will be introduced.
It comes after Jon revealed that he was already writing the second series during the summer last year – before the first had even aired.
"We're done with the first season. I'm actually writing part of the second series now. So I'm having a blast," he explained on the Jimmy Kimmel show.
The Star Wars spin-off series follows a Mandalorian bounty hunter, played by Pedro Pascal, during his journey through outer reaches of the galaxy.
