EAST VILLAGE (WABC) -- Commuters at the 2nd Avenue Subway Station in East Village are being greeted by a new Baby Yoda mural.

A timelapse captures the creation of a new Baby Yoda mural by artist Will Power.

He painted the mural at the Second Avenue F train subway stop over the weekend.

"I'm a big Star Wars fan and Baby Yoda is definitely fun to paint," he wrote on his Instagram (@theartofwillpower).

Baby Yoda is a character in the new Disney+ series "The Mandalorian."

"I wanted to paint something that would make the neighborhood kids happy," he wrote.
