    The most important of all is if he is pure good or just good.

    It wouldn´t surprise me if LFL asked someone to write The Yoda Trilogy.
    Wouldn´t surprise me if it never happened either, though....

    I hope all this information remains unknown. Knowing so little about Yoda's past (prior to TPM) is part of what makes his character so interesting, at least to me.

    I agree. It´s great to be able to write your own back story for Yoda and know that noone can say that it´s wrong :)
    The same goes for Palpatine.

    Yoda would be a difficult character to write about for two reasons. First of all, he lives to be roughly nine hundred years old, so information for more than 850 years must be generated. What we've seen of him from the films is the easy part. The second problem is the way he speaks. Because he says nearly everything backwards, it would be difficult to write dialogue for him, because one would run the risk of overdoing it.

    It's better as a mystery.

    I would love to know what his species is called but that's it. Leave everything else a mystery.

    Yoda just may be one of those characters that remains a mystery. That's if Episode III doesn't answer that question.

    I would only like to know his species and not his history.

    I much more want a history of Sidious/Palpatine.

    Yoda is a member of the Whill species, if memory serves. I think I saw it on the OS somewhere. Also the entire Star Wars saga was called "The Journal Of The Whills" when Lucas was originally writing it.

    Yoda is a green smurf. Everyone knows that.

    (That is why he likes blue milk)

    You have to hang out in the Epi III spoilers forum to get that. At least that is where I figured the joke out.

    I know the official site doesn't say, so it doesn't have the Lucasfilm(R) stamp of approval, but for the non-hardcore purists out there check this out...



    also there's this bit on the journal of the whills from the OS...

    Yes that is very true.......

    Every *real* Star Wars fan knows that Yoda D'Kana is a Whill from a planet called Grentarik.
    And that he was trained by the legendary Jedi Bontu Sitmus.

    watch the celebratory sequence at the end of the Phantom Menace.
    you can see a creature standing next to yoda who appears to be very similar.
    he's no puppet, i think hes played by a little person.
    theres no green skin but rather its peach.
    he also has the ears of yoda which really stuck out for me.

    DexVader_22: That character you are referring to is Even Piell, a marble-faced Lannik Jedi Master who was a member of the Jedi Council which convened to discuss the fate of young Anakin Skywalker. A fierce warrior on his homeworld, Piell was known among the Council members for his stoic demeanor and rigid code of honor.


    Here is a picture:

    [image=http://massassi.yavin4.com/sw_img/cgeven.jpg]

    According to the EU, Piell lost his left eye when he single-handedly defeated seven of the Chosen One's dangerous terrorists in a Lannik battle. He has continually refused a prosthetic replacement for his lost eye, believing that his scar is a symbol of his honor, bravery and ultimate survival despite enormous odds. :)

    Even Piell was portrayed by Michaela Cottrell in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. ;)

    Pew-yu I smell EU. ;)

    But is suppose that is what the EU is for, to tell us things that were never discussed in the on-screen saga. Be that as it may, I believe the EU to be glorified fan-fics.....but that doesn't mean they're not good.

    That is not EU. That is fan speculation.

    Yoda's race, origin, homeworld, etc. have never been officially revealed. ;)


    MyEternalRest: Pew-yu I smell EU.

    :p

    Again, it is not EU- nothing to worry about. ;) :)

    When I say any real Star Wars fan knows that Yoda is a Whill and about his origin's. I am not saying EU at all - that is all fanboy rubbish - I am stating the known facts from a *real* Star Wars source supershadow.com

    No no no. All of you have it all wrong. It's so obvious where he came from.

    If you pay attention to all the movies you will notice that Yoda comes from the Hood.
    He grew up on the mean streets of Compton, Coruscant, where he was simply known as Little Y. During his troubled teans he ran with a local gang where drive-by Force pushings were the norm.

    Realizing that this was going to lead him down a dark path, he dropped out of the gang and became a solo rapper named Slo Yo. After his debut album only sold four and a half copies he became addicted to crack. He continued this way for eight years before a major life-altering event took place.

    He woke up in a post-drunken stupor on the floor of a Wookie brothel and saw a pamphlet which said: "Learn to be a Jedi! Put a Mind Trick on your friends! Fun for all"
    After reading that he decided it was time for a change.

    After saving up $19.99 and waiting six to eight weeks later, he recieved his Jedi Starter Kit. Ever since that fatefull day Little Y and Slo Yo disappeared - Master Yoda was born!

    I can't believe you people didn't know that. God.
