- "Age, Yoda thought, has its advantages. More and more want the young, but less and less need the old."
- ―Excerpt from "There is Another"
"There is Another" is a short story in the anthology From a Certain Point of View. The story, written by Gary D. Schmidt, focuses on the point of view of Yoda and will be narrated in the audiobook edition by Marc Thompson.
Kenobi informs Yoda that he believes it is time for Yoda to train a new apprentice, a young Skywalker. Yoda jumps at the chance, believing that Kenobi is referring to Leia, not Luke. Once Kenobi clarifies that he is referring to Luke, not Leia, Yoda is far more hesitant. He refuses to train Luke, asserting that Luke does not have the temperament necessary to be a Jedi whereas Leia is ready.
Refusing to train Luke, Yoda tucks himself into bed, telling Kenobi that the time has come for him to die and join the Force. Convincing Yoda that it is not his time to die, Kenobi urges him once more to train Luke. Finally, reluctantly, Yoda gives in.
Before Kenobi departs from the hut, Yoda apologizes to him for losing the piece of pottery that Kenobi had given him. Kenobi says it was ok, telling Yoda that the pot had been old and ugly. Yoda argues that he himself is old and ugly, but before departing Kenobi tells him that he is a "luminous being." With that, Kenobi's spirit departs.
