*Takes deep breath* Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It’s hard to even say the title without opinions being flung all around. No matter how much I love the movie, there are more than a few people out there with some really big problems with it — some legit, some petty, some stupid…all mostly valid opinions. Perhaps in another two decades, it will stand as one of the most controversial geek films of all time.
Some problems audiences had had to do with some of the characters’ actions. Luke Skywalker is often touted as one of the big problems, as his crotchety personality isn’t in keeping with how we left him decades earlier in Return of the Jedi, but there are other characters that rubbed some fans the wrong way, including Yoda, who made a short appearance at the end of act two of the film where he burned the ancient Jedi texts. One fan took to Twitter to express his annoyance at the scene, only to get shown up by Frank Oz, who has puppeteered and voiced the character since the very beginning.
The fan commented on the idea that Yoda was only playing a fool in The Empire Strikes Back, and that his goofy personality in The Last Jedi was out of character:
“You never picked up on that Yoda was trying to fool Luke in ESB? He was acting crazy and like a pest because he didn’t want Luke knowing who he was just yet. So yeah, in TLJ he was out of character…by burning the Force Tree especially.”
Oz then went on to say:
“I kind of have pretty intimate knowledge of who Yoda is, and I don’t feel it was out of character at all.”

Yeah, I have nothing more to say except for what this Twitter user shared:
