Hold on a second...I'm not saying that the Muppets (Kermit, Fozzie, Ms Piggy etc) will actually appear in Episode VII. What I am saying is that Disney, in addition to owning LucasFilm, also owns the Muppets and a lot of Jim Henson's puppet studios. We all know that Yoda was designed by Frank Oz, who is famous for voicing and performing many of the Muppet characters. I think there are many OT fans out there that like the fact that much of the OT was a physical puppet or costume. So do you think there will be more physical puppets in the ST given that Disney owns probably the most sophisticated puppetry studio in the world?
