    ILM: As promised on the [Ep. III] set, Lucas has cut together and turned over seven brief Yoda scenes [for Ep. III], which amount to ninety-eight shots, for Coleman and his animation team to get started on.

    "I'm in a very good place right now," Coleman says. [hl=yellow]In fact, his department has nearly finished replacing the Episode I Yoda puppet with digital Yoda[/hl]?an exercise that Lucas and Coleman agreed would serve as a good warm-up?so the animation department is now primed and ready for Yoda's Episode III performance.
