(CNN)Baby Yoda became an honorary astronaut over the weekend.

A plush toy version of the creature -- which stole people's hearts in Disney+'s Star Wars series "The Mandalorian" -- can be seen in a live stream from inside SpaceX's Crew Dragon.

The four astronauts on Sunday became part the second-ever crewed flight of a SpaceX spacecraft.

The first Crew Dragon to launch humans, which was still considered a test mission, took off in May. It's not the first time SpaceX astronauts have brought a plush friend with them on board.

"Super high tech zero-g indicator added just before launch!" he wrote in the tweet, adding in a response to another user that the plush toy was "going to float around in zero gravity. "

SpaceX did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment regarding Baby Yoda's presence on the spacecraft.
