Concept Art and Trivia


Yoda’s confidence in his own ability and knowledge as he begins his journey is reminiscent of Luke Skywalker’s certainty when he meets Yoda on Dagobah. This episode exposes Yoda to many of the key lessons that he would later impart to Luke, including the philosophy of serenity and peace over war. This episode bridges the reality of Yoda the battlefield general of the prequels to Yoda, the one who dismisses war in The Empire Strikes Back.


As Yoda walks through the ruined Jedi Temple hallway, an echo of the “Battle of the Heroes” theme from Episode III can be heard.


Count Dooku discusses an encounter with a terentatek on Kashyyyk. Terentateks were fearsome creatures first introduced into Star Wars lore in the 2003 game, Knights of the Old Republic.


Among the Jedi gathered on the Temple training grounds in Yoda’s idyllic vision are Quinlan Vos, Saesee Tiin, Mace Windu, Ahsoka Tano, Gungi, Tera Sinube, Aayla Secura, Anakin Skywalker, Kit Fisto, Eeth Koth, Ganodi, Ran Deezy, Zatt, Byph, Tiplar, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Shaak Ti, Adi Gallia, Barriss Offee, Knox, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Dooku.


When the serene Force Priestess pulls her mask off to reveal empty robes, it is meant to be reminiscent of Obi-Wan’s empty robes falling when he is struck down by Darth Vader in Episode IV.
