I think Yoda of Episode V and VI was such a great character. The old and wise Jedi master’s charm was lost to me when the prequels came out and we had the CGI version of Yoda battling in epic lightsaber duels. It just wasn’t the Yoda I grew up with! I think Yoda was a casualty of George Lucas’ creative misdirection in the prequels. There was certainly a lot of magic lost in those three movies. A real shame! Happily, Episode VII brought back that swashbuckling feel of the original trilogy. I can’t wait for Episode VIII!
