We all know that Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to bring back a host of characters from the Original Trilogy, with Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3PO – and even the likes of Admiral Ackbar and Nien Nunb – all confirmed as returning.
There have of course been some wild and crazy rumours thrown out there too, such as the potential return of Emperor Palpatine and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Now thanks to Star Wars News Net, we have another rumour, and one that should also probably be marked as “dubious”.
So, according to a source for the site who claims to have worked on the foreign dubbing of the movie, The Force Awakens contains a scene with the Jedi Master Yoda, which will presumably be as part of a flashback, or as a Force ghost given his fate in Return of the Jedi.
Now, with Luke Skywalker said to have been in self-imposed exile in the years following Jedi, it is entirely possible that he’s been in communication with Yoda, and Frank Oz recently returned to voice the character in Star Wars Rebels, so perhaps he recorded a few extra lines of dialogue for the movie?
I guess we’ll find out soon enough…
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set for release on December 17th in the UK and December 18th in the States and sees J.J. Abrams directing returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Kenny Baker (R2-D2), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) and Tim Rose (Admiral Ackbar), in addition to Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (A Most Violent Year), Andy Serkis (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Domhnall Gleeson (Ex Machina), John Boyega (Attack the Block), Daisy Ridley (Silent Witness), Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave), Ken Leung (Lost), Miltos Yerolemou (Game of Thrones), Max von Sydow (The Exorcist), Jessica Henwick (Spirit Warriors), Christina Chong (24: Live Another Day), Simon Pegg (Star Trek) and newcomers Crystal Clarke and Pip Andersen.
