Did anyone catch any news yesterday about how for ESB they were planning to use a trained monkey to play Yoda before Jim Henson stepped in with his puppet creation?

Here's a link to the story.

Glad they used muppet Yoda instead of monkey Yoda in the end lol!

That would have been such a bad idea - constantly flinging poo at Luke and searching his hair for fleas :buzzing:

That's a new one on me, thanks for sharing Paul. I know the original Emperor was part chimp, but I'm glad Yoda was a puppet!

Speaking of muppets and primates, did you all know that Episodes I, II & III where directed by a Muppet with the screenplay writing abilities of a primate, just thought I'd throw that coincidental comparison in there Razz
