Justice has gone viral for wearing the mask of the lead character in ‘The Mandalorian.’
Raena Granberry wanted to go Christmas shopping for some decorations. She decided to bring her daughter. So she asked her 5-year-old girl, Justice, to put on a mask.
Justice did just that. And her mask had its own message — this is the way.
“I told my daughter to grab her mask so we can go to the store. This was the mask she grabbed,” she wrote on Twitter.

Since that moment, the young girl’s photo has gone viral across social media. For the uninitiated, Justice is wearing a mask from “The Mandalorian,” a Disney Plus “Star Wars” show that is currently releasing new episodes.
Justice told BuzzFeed News she chose “The Mandalorian” mask “’cause it was awesome.”
“Star Wars” stars took note of the viral moment. Pedro Pascal, who plays the main character on “The Mandalorian,” tweeted about the photo:

Daniel Logan, who played Boba Fett in “Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones” and voiced the character in “The Clone Wars” animated series, also tweeted about the photo.
“Adorable. Let her know #BobaFett approves! Looks like she also has her cloth mask underneath as well. Double bounty hunter protection.”

Justice told BuzzFeed News her entire family loves “Star Wars.” But her favorite character is Rey — Rey Skywalker — because of all the things she brings with her.
“She has a sword,” Justice said. “She has a lightsaber, and she has this little robe around her costume so it can protect her. And she lives in the wild.”
Granberry told BuzzFeed News her family has been under a lot of stress in 2020. She has worked part-time to help children with school. Her husband works at a cemetery.
This little viral moment was enough to bring light into their world, she said.
“I just think this entire year has thrown us all for a loop,” Granberry said. “People really want some light, some joy, like we’re looking for it all the time. ... Kids are just so pure and happy, it kind of makes you forget all of the mess.”
