BEHIND THE SCENES: IN PERFECT UNION
An inseparable symbiosis- Frank Oz and the puppet Yoda on the misty, murky, mucky Dagobah set at Elstree Studios in August/September 1979, as the idea of making what was essentially an upgraded muppet into a figure of charismatic mystery, later enigmatic icon, soon became a reality, for THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.
It was great to hear Frank Oz's vocal return to both THE FORCE AWAKENS and STAR WARS REBELS. It looks like he and Yoda will also be returning in some shape or form for EPISODE VIII.
