After appearing in Episode V: Empire Strikes Back, Yoda became one of the most recognized movie characters in Sci-fi. Why is he so popular? What is it about this odd-looking-old-little-green guy?
The truth is, that we can’t be 100% sure, why is Yoda such a beloved character. One of the reasons may be the amount of mystery around Yoda. You have to realize, that the original trilogy was very exciting. With every new movie, there was a fair amount of new secrets and plots from the Star Wars World. Everyone was so excited to find out, what happens next…
Yoda doesn’t loose any of his charisma after seeing all 6 episodes either. He is strong. In fact the strongest Jedi in the universe. He is extremely wise, that’s why he was the leader of the Jedi Order. He is one of the few Jedi survivors of the Great Jedi Purge caused by Anakin Skywalker, who became Darth Vader, and Chancellor Palpatine, who at became the Emperor of the galaxy known as Darth Sidious.
Yoda was a powerful teacher as well who has been teaching a long list of Jedis for 800 years. The best known are Kit Fisto, Mace Windu, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Count Dooku, Obi-Wan Kenobi and the great Luke Skywalker.
He is also one of the four Jedis, along with Anakin, Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, who learned, how to communicate with fallen Jedis via Force Spirit.
