Yoda is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, appearing in the second and third original films, as well as all three prequel trilogy films. Yoda made his first on-screen appearance in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back where he is responsible for training Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Jedi. His final chronological appearance is Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, when he dies peacefully at the age of 900. He also appears extensively in the two animated Clone Wars series, as well as the Star Wars Expanded Universe of novels and comic books.

In the original films, he trains Luke Skywalker to fight against the evil Galactic Empire. In the prequel films, he serves as a leading member of the Jedi Council and as a general in the Clone Wars.

In 2008, Yoda was selected by Empire magazine as the 25th greatest movie character of all time.[1] On their list of the 100 Greatest Fictional Characters, Fandomania.com ranked Yoda at number 60.[2]


Voice and animation

Frank Oz provided Yoda's voice in each film and lent his skills as a puppeteer in the original trilogy and The Phantom Menace. For the latter, in some walking scenes, Warwick Davis incarnated Yoda as well. For the radio dramatizations of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, Yoda was voiced by John Lithgow, while Tom Kane voiced him in the Clone Wars animated series, several video games, and the new series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
