The species to which the legendary Jedi Master Yoda belonged was ancient and shrouded in mystery. The species had two sexes: male and female. Members of that species were small in size, with green skin and long pointed ears. Their three-fingered hands ended in claws. Their ears were expressive, curling and unfurling in accordance with their emotions. The species' life expectancy spanned several centuries.
Behind the scenesEdit
- "So he's a mystery character, he's a magical character. He has no background. He comes and he goes. He's the subversive secret mysterious stranger that enters the film and to then exits at the end."
- ―George Lucas, about Yoda's background
Star Wars creator George Lucas chose to keep the name and background of Yoda's species a mystery. As of May 2017, both Yoda's and Yaddle's Databank entries on StarWars.com list their species as "Unknown."
In the documentary "From Puppets to Pixels," available on the DVD bonus disc of Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones, Lucas joked that Yoda was "the illegitimate child of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy."
In The Empire Strikes Back: So You Want to Be a Jedi?, a canon retelling of Episode V written by Adam Gidwitz, Luke Skywalker calls Yoda a "little swamp frog."
