Series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
The Lost Missions (Season Six), Episode 11
Original Air Date: March 1, 2014
If I am honest with myself, my adoration for the Star Wars franchise mostly revolves around a single movie: The Empire Strikes Back. I am thoroughly prepared to argue for Empire as greatest film ever made. Wagner would have loved Empire: an extraordinary display of synthesis between all great art forms. Most importantly to our current discussion, it is the heart of the Star Wars story and it introduces my own favorite character: Yoda, an adorable spiritual guru Muppet voiced by Frank Oz. He was tailor-made for me.
In "Voices," Yoda's path leads him to Dagobah, apparently for the first time. Of course, we all know the swamp planet as Yoda's future home, a world with deep connections to The Force. With the familiar sights and sounds and the musical strains of Yoda's Theme, this episode tugged at my heart strings as no other has. This is the Star Wars I love, the one that always leaves me wanting more.
Next week: "Destiny."
