Everyone's favorite two-foot Jedi, Yoda, is set to make his return to the official Star Wars canon in an upcoming episode of Star Wars: Rebels.
Frank Oz will return to voice the Jedi Master, who will only be heard as a disembodied voice. Speaking of Yoda's return, executive producer Dave Filoni told TV Guide: "I felt personally to keep Yoda as this disembodied thing it would confuse the audience less. I didn't want you to think Yoda could be teleporting from planet to planet. What's great about Frank, by keeping the voice very present and active, you do feel that it's a watchfulness and that he's speaking to you from afar. And I didn't want anyone to think that he had left Dagobah [the planet where Yoda first trains Luke Skywalker]. It was on the outer rim of what we do, but I think we were able to pull it off."
Set to air on Monday, January 5th, the episode which will herald the return of Jedi Master Yoda is entitled Path of the Jedi. In the episode, Yoda will offer advice to Jedi Knight Kanan an his Padawan Ezra on the remote planet of Lothal.
The episode will also feature homages to both The Clone Wars and The Empire Strikes Back, and we can't wait.
