Yoda was to be very different in 'Star Wars': He was to be called Buffy and look like a garden gnome

Looks like he won out with his final look, doesn’t it?

Along with Luke, Anakin Skywalker, Leia, and Darth Vader, Yoda is one of the most beloved characters in Star Wars history. The Grand Master of the Jedi Order is unmistakable: green skin, beaked ears, a peculiar way of speaking and, of course, great wisdom. Everyone knows him, even those who have not seen the films and series of the franchise. But did you know that his appearance would be very different from the one that finally appeared in ‘Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back’?

Some time ago, Digital Spy visited the Star Wars Identities exhibition at London’s O2 and was able to share a painting by artist Ralph McQuarrie (1929-2012), who was responsible for the look of the iconic Darth Vader, in which you can see an idea for Yoda very different from what he later became. Without going any further, it was practically identical to that of a garden gnome: humanoid appearance, small proportions, beak hat and bushy white beard. Also, he was not to be called Yoda, but Buffy!
