Welcome to the A to Z blogging challenge! All month long we'll be creating posts for each letter of the alphabet according to a theme. Click here to see the list of participating blogs.
My theme is Memorable Characters featuring characters from books, movies, and TV.
From: Star Wars
Known For: Jedi wisdom, odd speech patterns
I love puppet Yoda the best, mainly because of his Muppet linkage, but CGI Yoda is pretty fierce too. In the prequels, he's a fighter and a dangerous Jedi to mess with who has years left before swamp retirement. While the Dagobah scenes in The Empire Strikes Back are some of the least interesting in the series, Yoda is who grounds Luke in understanding the force, which ultimately saves them from the empire. But he's just a little green dude with pointy ears! And yet, a legend.
I've already featured Star Wars several times this month. Instead of a question, I will leave you with this Yoda-esque Star Wars viewing suggestion, which reverses the standard order of the films. Perhaps the best way to watch the series as it stands: 4,5,1,2,3,6 (New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of Sith, Return of Jedi (or omit Clones entirely). This was not my idea, but it's pretty much right on. Thoughts?
