Yoda almost appeared in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’
When little kids (and even the grown ups) think of Star Wars, they immediately think of the little green Jedi who speaks very oddly.
Unfortunately Yoda was missing in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’. Maryann Brandon and Mary Jo Markey, who are Oscar-nominated editors of ‘The Force Awakens’, said at the 66th annual ACE Eddie Awards that Yoda was originally meant to make an appearance as a cameo in the newest Star Wars movie. Frank Oz, who is the voice actor for Yoda in all the Star Wars movies, even came in for a day to do some voiceovers!
“There was one point where we were actually thinking of having Yoda in the film and then we decided not to. Frank Oz came in for a day and did a whole bunch of Yoda and he was over the moon to do it, and we were tickled pink!” – source ET Online.
