Marvel’s Upcoming Yoda Arc

Star Wars #26 will kick off an arc telling a pre-TPM tale starring Yoda.

StarWars.com: I’m guessing it’s pre-Phantom Menace. So is it a young Yoda of 600 years old? [Laughs] How far back are we going?

Jason Aaron: [Laughs] I don’t know if we’ve put a pin in exactly when it takes place. It does take place before Phantom Menace. We do get a brief appearance by Qui-Gon and young Obi-Wan, so that’ll probably help date it.

This sounds really interesting. I can’t wait to read it!

    if old Yoda could be spunky, can you imagine him in his youth?

    It does sound interesting. It’s weird seeing starwars.com posing the questions to the author, they should know, they’re sw. 😛

      There was a “young Yoda” design in the “Art of The Phantom Menace” book published back when the movie came out, although thinking about I might never have had your rather interesting idea in my own mind…

      However, there’s a tossed-off line about the Republic having stood “for a thousand years,” shorter by far than the “thousand generations” Obi-Wan once said the Jedi had been around for. For some reason therefore I have contemplated that Yoda’s formative years, even though they were a century after the Republic’s establishment, could have still been a time of transition and establishment after recovery, which no doubt gave plenty of opportunity for adventure.
