Frank Oz Talks Yoda In 'Rebels'

By: Benjamin Hart

Legendary voice actor and puppeteer Frank Oz is returning to one of his most iconic roles next week when everyone's favorite backwards talking Frog makes his debut on Star Wars Rebels. It was recently announced that Yoda's disembodied voice would make an appearance in the mid-season premiere episode "Path Of The Jedi", where the exiled Jedi Master will commune with Kanan Jarrus through the Force. You can get a taste of that exchange in a clip that was released yesterday.

Frank Oz recently spoke with LaughingPlace.com about his return to the the Galaxy far, far away:

Q. How does it feel to be reprising the voice of Yoda for Rebels after nearly ten years?        A. It was wonderful to be him again.

Q.  How did you like working with Dave Filoni, EP/Supervising Director of Star Wars Rebels?A. Dave was great. He “got it.” We worked well together.

He was also asked about how Yoda, and his voice, came to be, which he discussed in detail. You can read the full interview on LaughingPlace.com. And be sure to tune into "Path Of The Jedi" on Disney XD this Monday, January 5th at 9:00pm ET/PT, or catch it on Watch Disney XD right now!
