Yoda is Rumored to Train Rey in Star Wars Nine
Star Wars: The Last Jedi was full of many surprises, but quite possibly the best surprise of them all was the inclusion of Jedi Master Yoda as a Force Ghost. Yoda helped bring light and understanding to Luke’s confused state after Rey left Ahch-To. He brought his wisdom back to the screen that we have missed so much. And it seems that wisdom may continue in Star Wars 9.
The Last Jedi may have received a lot of hate from long-term Star Wars fans, but one moment that almost everyone enjoyed was Yoda. After this positive reception to the Force Ghost, rumor has it that Lucasfilm is planning on bringing Yoda back in a larger role for Star Wars 9, where he will give mentorship to Rey as she continues to grow in her strength. The rumor first surfaced from New York Daily News, who claimed to have an anonymous inside source who was connected to Episode IX.
“The success of the scenes featuring Yoda in The Last Jedi were huge,” said the insider. “Yoda will again appear as a ghost as he acknowledges Rey’s success and growth as a Jedi. The scenes are due to be put together later this year.”
This is great new for all Yoda fans, as many people have wanted to see more of the 900 year-old Jedi. Since his first appearance in The Empire Strikes Back, Yoda has been a favorite among many Star Wars fans. Not only was a major highlights of The Empire Strikes Back, but he was also one of the best parts of the prequel trilogy.
Frank Oz Might Return
Frank Oz, the puppeteer and voice actor of Yoda, has previously stated that he was unsure about the future of the character and if he would be involved in future installments. However, if the rumors of Yoda returning in Star Wars Episode IX are to be believed, then it is very likely that Oz will choose to return to the role. Yoda is one of Oz’s favorite characters to play, which is why Oz returned to voice Yoda in both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.
