The official website of Star Wars has revealed that Yoda (his voice only) will be in the new episode of Star Wars Rebels ‘Path of the Jedi’ which will air on January 5th and it’s Frank Oz who will reprise his role as Yoda!
As reported on TVGuide.com, Yoda will be featured in the upcoming “Path of the Jedi” episode. Since Star Wars Rebels is set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, this point in the timeline finds Yoda in hiding on Dagboah after the decimation of the Jedi Order. In the episode, he’ll appear only in the form of his disembodied voice — provided by Frank Oz, who voiced the Jedi Master in five Star Wars films and operated the original puppet in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi — communing with Kanan and Ezra. “I felt personally to keep Yoda as this disembodied thing it would confuse the audience less,” executive producer Dave Filoni told TVGuide.com. “I didn’t want you to think Yoda could be teleporting from planet to planet.”
