    It looks like Yoda may be getting recast in episode IV - this new screen test footage on an unknown jungle planet includes the muppets trying out for the part of Yoda:

    No that's not possible. Take my word for it, Yoda will definitely be CG, after all, he and Sidious are the stars of Episode IV. a puppet can't carry that much dramatic weight. Next thing you'll be telling me the Empire will be destroyed by teddy bears.

    Actually I heard that Lucas was going to go 2 dimensional and replace Yoda with Plankton from Spongebob. He thinks it will have more kid appeal and add comic relief.

    I'd bet on CG, but Yoda's voice may be changing a little bit in the next film. Word is that John Lithgow has been given copies of Yoda's scenes, presumably for voiceover work. Maybe Frank Oz is too busy? I suppose some time in exile could change one's voice a bit, but I'm not sure I'm comfortable with this news...

    It HAS to be CGI, remember the puppet from TPM, they can't pull that crap again. That's a weird planet for Yoda to go too, it looks like this next one has way less everything than the last one huh?

    I dunno, maybe we should have faith in George. I can remember back to the days of 3SA when I was the few who beleived in him and my faith was paid off.
