Star Wars: One of the most popular film series in the world. The galactic war between good and evil, with intrigue, space battles and lots of action in various forms, has a huge fan base to this day. As the creator of these masterpieces, George Lucas is now one of the most famous people in the film industry, while Master Yoda is a figure that is known the world over - and not just to Star Wars fans
Yoda is a member of the Jedi council and takes care of the training of the Jedi. The only problem - his grammar leaves a little to be desired and would have any English teacher shaking in their boots. But the unusual inflection in his speech pattern is a defining characteristic that is well-known and much-beloved. Is a Star Wars fan really a true fan if they haven't mimicked Yoda's way of talking at least once? This pint-sized Grand Master of the Jedi Order is full of insight, wisdom, kindness and humour
❝ When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not. ❞
- Master Yoda
The EMP online shop offers you a large selection of fan merchandise honouring the bright green Star Wars darling that is Yoda. Brighten up your fan wardrobe with green Jedi power or make sure that your kitchen is filled with The Force. Get Master Yoda for all your adventures, both inside and outside your home. Do or do not. There is no try.
Cult characters from the Star Wars universe
Unfortunately, not very much is known about the origin of the grandmaster, but what we do know is that he always walks with a cane. Why? Is he trying to hide his power from his enemies and trick even his opponents into treating him with respect? At 900 years old a walking stick is to be expected - but not necessarily one made from Gimer bark!
Because Yoda's power goes hand in hand with great wisdom, he is able to help the light side of The Force triumph. As one of the chiefs of the Jedi Order, Yoda was able to use his skills in various wars. His weapon is a green lightsaber and even the mighty Luke Skywalker owes his training to him. Master Yoda is definitely one of THE cult characters from the Star Wars universe, which is why he should rightly be one of your favourites too.

👉 Fun fact 1: doll not a monkey
Master Yoda's character was originally intended to be played by a monkey with a walking stick and face mask. Fortunately, this was reconsidered, and finally an alternative solution using a puppet was used. Thanks to animation, Yoda was able to be given a lightsaber to fight with.
👉 Fun fact 2: Yoda with long hair?
The female version of Yoda is called Yaddle
👉 Fun Fact 3: Yoda is actually Sanskrit for warrior
George Lucas has many ancient themes running through Star Wars because he wanted the series to feature primitive creatures that bring down the technological Empire. Speaking of names R2RD has a funny story about how his name came about. While shooting the film "American Graffiti", a sound engineer asked George Lucas for a soundtrack with the following wording: 'Role 2, Dialogue Track 2'. The resulting abbreviation - R2D2 - was so popular with George Lucas that he named the bronze robot 'R2D2'.
👉 Fact 4: That voice
Master Yoda's grammar is noticeable from the start because it is slightly unusual. His grammatical idioms are very characteristic to this day and are highly recognisable. The man who gave Yoda this iconic speech style is called Frank Oz. It was no accident - Oz actually created the language especially for the 2 foot tall Jedi master.
