Stuart Freeborn, the British make-up artist who designed Yoda, has died. Miss you we will. Here are some intriguing facts about Freeborn's most famous creation.
Freeborn based Yoda on his own appearance
However, he also wanted Yoda to look intelligent, so he threw in a bit of Albert Einstein as well
He also gave him green skin - which is just as well, because Yoda with human skin is horrifying
What IS Yoda? Nobody knows. Not even George Lucas
Even so, Lucas is obviously proud of Yoda. There is a statue of him at Lucasfilm Ltd. production studios in San Francisco
The voice of Yoda was provided by Frank Oz, who also voiced Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear in "The Muppets", as well as Cookie Monster in "Sesame Street"
