    Found this to be interesting, thought it could be a discussion point. I personally like the idea of Yoda's long history being explored. I do hope they keep the early years of his life a mystery though. I liked the mystery that surrounded Yoda from when we first see him in ESB. A balance must be struck...

    What are your opinions of this? How far back do you think they will go?

    No thanks.

    Hearing about the "Whills" from a few years back that was enough for me.

    the mystery of Yoda's past not knowing since Empire Strikes Back is better that way.

    Yaddle was just stupid tecnically. female Yoda with long red hair and lipstick. Reminds me of the Gremlin from Gremlins 2

    I don't think they will reveal much of Yoda's background. Yes, we'll get a tale or two from prior to TPM, probably with younger versions of other characters (Qui-Gonn and Obi-Wan), but I don't think we'll learn where he is from, see him as a padawan, etc.

    Yeah I highly doubt this is Yoda: Origins because the solicit is described as Yoda already as a Jedi Master. If it's just a Yoda-centric story where he does Yoda stuff and saves the day while being Yoda, I'm totally okay with that.

    One thing that is slightly noticeable is that in the OT, not every line Yoda says is backwards Yoda speak, some lines he says rather plainly. but in the PT / TCW he's basically all backwards Yoda speak all the time. I'd be happy if he gets one or two lines out in this arc in a rather straightforward matter.

    We won't get Yoda's species. In fact, Pablo recently mentioned on the SW Show that we'll never get that.

    It's just a comic with a cool story with Yoda.. Speculation about it being Yoda origin isn't worth it, if they were going to--it'd be a book, and they aren't. Pablo even said it on an interview as Jello stated.

    Here's a variant cover for Star Wars 26, though it is quite low resolution.

    Looks like Mace Windu may be appearing in the comic!

    I saw this on comixology! I have SW through Vader Down but not the rest as of yet and thought as far as individual issues this would be a good place to pick up while I catch up on the collections.

    I doubt it'll happen, but I'd like to see it. The fan-created Del Gormo design was cool and unusual. Down with the over-representation of humanoid aliens!

    That too was a fine touch, methinks. I can imagine this tale in comic form, using one of those exterimental Visionaries art styles.

    I don't want a Yoda origin, but I think it would be cool to see him in one of his centuries other than the one we see him in in the movies (I hope that makes sense).

    I don't want Yoda's species or homeworld revealed, but seeing Yoda become the Grandmaster or his exploits 100 or so years before the films would be interesting.

    Happy to have a few more little Yoda stories as long as they don't do any origin stuff. The odd little adventure here and there over 900 years wouldn't be bad at all. (They don't even need to date them, to be honest - it's a big universe and a long lifespan.)

    I'm really curious (and excited of the possibilities) if Qui-Gon and/or Mace Windu have a bit of their backstories revealed in this arc. They do appear in some of the variant covers, so I think there is a chance :D

    An adventure involving Yoda....Yes. A story telling his species, what planet he is from, his whole life story...NO!!!

    Thanks for posting the preview.

    Great, another instance of Yoda speech parody. Also, if this somehow manages to tell a story without Yoda igniting a lightsabre and you know actually being wise Yoda, I'm in, but if this is the flipside of what we've been seeing with Vader, ie, superhero Jedi takes out any entire army, then I'm so not interested.

    Can't wait for this. The art looks (surprisingly!) good too.

    Indeed. First, I'm eagerly awaiting more canon material during or before the PT era, and this mini series will help fulfill that. Second, like said up above, the art looks fantastic.

    If by "wise Yoda" you mean The Empire Strikes Back's Yoda, that guy only exists because he went through the Clone Wars and learned the hard way that Jedi cannot be warriors. This is a Yoda who hasn't learned that lesson yet, though this is also a Yoda who hasn't been called upon to be a warrior yet.

    I'd rather Yoda not use a lightsaber, but it's canon and there's nothing we can do about it. Just hope it's only used as a last resort.
