Marvel unleashing 10-issue miniseries starring Yoda titled Star Wars: Yoda
Yoda will also be getting his own comic book series albeit in a miniseries format titled Star Wars: Yoda which is set at different points in the life of the dimunitive Jedi master.
According to Marvel, the story will start at the twilight of Yoda’s life with his exile in Dagobah where he remembers his life at various points in time starting with the High Republic era followed by the time before the Prequel Trilogy and at the end of the Clone Wars. The first arc will be written by Cavan Scott with art by Nico Leon followed by writers Jody Houser and Marc Guggenheim. Artists for the succeeding arcs would be Luke Ross and Alessandro Miracolo.
For the final issue, Cavan Scott and Nico Leon will return to wrap everything up with the promise of finding out the “unexplored aspects” of Yoda’s story and shed new light on his past.
“I’ve been lucky to write Yoda in various projects over the last few years, most notably in Dooku: Jedi Lost, and every time I write him my love for him deepens,” Scott tells StarWars.com. “It’s fair to say that my study at home is a shrine for three Star Wars icons: there are a lot of Obi-Wan figures; many, many, many, MANY pieces of Ewok merchandise (do I love those murder bears more than the Lepi? Don’t tell Jaxxon, but there’s every chance!); and then there is Yoda. The little guy is everywhere, in models, in art, and in lots of LEGO. Yoda casts a long shadow over anything he appears in, and writing him is a privilege and a responsibility I take seriously.”
“I’ve been wanting to do a Yoda book since I started working on the Star Wars titles,” Editor Mark Paniccia added. “Yoda is a very special character to me as he is to everyone working on this series. We all have our hearts and souls in this and I hope the fans enjoy it as much as we have putting it together. It’s really unique and I’m very proud of it.”
Star Wars: Yoda # 1 is set for release October 2022.
