Makingstarwars.net is reporting that Frank Oz, the voice and puppet master behind Yoda, is either traveling, or already in the UK on business to Pinewood Studios. The site has established a reliable track record for breaking accurate news regarding production within the Star Wars universe.
The return of several force ghost characters has been a topic of much discussion among fans following the tidbits of news surrounding the next saga film. For Frank Oz, this has not been his first association with a new Star Wars saga film. He was brought in by J.J. Abrams on The Force Awakens to record dialogue for Rey's force vision scene. Although his newly recorded dialogue was not used for the film, older Yoda dialogue was reused from previous films which can be heard faintly in the background. Other voices can also be heard including Obi Wan, voiced by both Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor. Could this hint at their return in Episode 8?
There have also been rumors that Hayden Christensen will reprise his role as Darth Vader in the Rogue One spin-off film slated for December of this year and could possibly have an appearance in Episode VIII as Anakin Skywalker.
