SXSW (South by Southwest) is a film festival that occurs in Texas in mid-March, and over the past few years has become increasingly popular. We tend to get quite a bit of interesting quotes from there and one such quote came from Frank Oz about his possible return to the Star Wars films. Oz had this to say:
"I feel like I’m a prisoner at war here, and I can only give you my name, rank and serial number. To be true to the people who asked me, and they are kind of my family, I have to say I’ve been asked not to talk about it. I love Yoda. I would be happy to talk to you about it at the time they let me."
I get that he is deflecting here, but he does it in a way that gives over-examining journalists, such as myself, something to look at. Let's examine shall we.
1. "...I've been asked not to talk about it."
Again, this could be a huge smokescreen to get someone like me to simply talk about it, and if it is the I give the creators a golf clap. But in reality, why would he specifically be asked not to speak on the matter? I have already had an insane prediction that Snoke may be the undead ghost of Darth Vader, that has evolved over time into something else. I would love to see a battle between him and Yoda in the Astral realm. This of course, is pure fanboy speculation.
2. "I would be happy to talk to you about it at the time they let me."
Wait a second, he is saying "when they let him"? This stirs the pot even moreso, and makes you wonder just where he could show up. The first guess would be the Han Solo spinoff movie. Did Han ever actually make mention that he did not know Yoda in the original three? Chewbacca actually fought for Yoda in the prequel at the Kashyyyk war, under his command. So I am sure Chewy grumbled something to Han about it.
We have a long ways to wait as the Han Solo spinoff doesn't arrive until 2018, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi will drop on December 15th of this year. Speculate away my friends! Could Yoda show up, and would he be ghost-Yoda or live-Yoda?
