Could We Be Seeing Yoda in Star Wars: Episode 8?

Rumors are swirling about the possible appearance of puppeteer Frank Oz at the Pinewood Studios, where Star Wars: Episode VIII is being filmed. As you know, Oz was the puppeteer and voice behind everyone’s favorite mini-Jedi Yoda.

A Yoda appearance in the latest Star Wars Installment wouldn’t be too much of a stretch given that we now know he was originally supposed to make a cameo on The Force Awakens, and Oz was on set for that movie as well.

Presumably, a Yoda cameo in next year’s Episode VIII will come in the form of a ghost as he did after he died in Return of the Jedi.

This will be fun to watch as things progress with the filming of the new movie. I’ll be posting what I see and hear when I can.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
