A younger take on Jedi master Yoda will appear in the comic book series 'Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures'.
The first live-action 'Star Wars' series ended its debut episode with the reveal of a very surprising (and adorable) new being.
Introduced in ‘The Empire Strikes Back’, the tiny, green-skinned Jedi Master teaches Luke Skywalker the ways of the Force. During an interview with StarWars.com, comic book author Jason Aaron discussed how an upcoming issue of the official ‘Star Wars’ comic delved into Yoda’s past… and might finally give us a glimpse into his early years.
Everyone’s favourite diminutive 900-year-old Jedi might be making a much anticipated return to the ‘Star Wars’ franchise after it was alleged that Frank Oz has recorded new audio for ‘Episode 8′. Indie Revolver have reported that writer and director Rian Johnson asked Oz to join the cast. Frank Oz provided the voice of Yoda in the original and prequel trilogies, while he worked as a puppeteer on ‘A New Hope’, ‘The Empire Strikes Back’, ‘Return Of The Jedi’, and ‘The Phantom Menace’.
OK, so if you’ve not seen ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ yet, it’s best to stop reading because its director, J.J. Abrams, has confirmed the classic stars that appear in the new film. At the time it’s a quick, disorientating montage of Kylo Ren standing over slain bodies, a cloaked Luke Skywalker reaching towards R2-D2, and a younger version of Rey being abandoned on Jakku. Well Abrams has confirmed that they include a number of original cast members from both trilogies.
