For those that were in Indianapolis and seen the opening ceremony, you know what I am talking about. They showed a short clip of the fight scene with Yoda and all I can say is he is one PO'd Jedi Master!!

Im still wondering how this is gonna look when I go see the movie, I mean Chris Lee is one tall guy(6'4 I believe) and Yoda is a shorty, so their saber duel sure is gonna be intresting, and odd to say the least.

SirSteve, I read a report that he looked funny after reverting back to his rickety old walk with his cane. Was it really funny in a cool way or just silly?

This is the only scene that had me frightened for awhile (well, not frightened but rather concerned) and your report that he looks very upset soothes my concern a bit. :)

I still do not see how Yoda is able to fight. He is walking with a cane in EP1.

It looks like Lee is figthing a Gremlin or somethin'. I still don't know if this fight scene idea is a good idea...

Anyone else see Muppet Teasure Island? I can only picture Yoda and Dooku in a duel like Kermit and Long John Silver's duel...

My opinion of the size difference in the fight scene is solved by levitation.

If anyone has the E2 Yoda figure he has a levitation feature. Might play a part in the movie, possibly Yoda/Dooku fight.

I think it's actually more a matter of Yoda moving very quickly. Most accounts I've heard of it seem to suggest that Dooku just can't keep up.

Yeah pthfnder89, according to one fan at the press screening the other night, Yoda's fighting style is similar to Darth Maul's. :) Here is what they said when interviewed.

"Yoda is the big star of this film. He makes Darth Maul look like Ironside. Actually, his moves are very similar to Darth Maul's...He is all over the place, bouncing off walls and it drew a big laugh from the audience to see him go back to his normal cane walking self after his encounter with Dooku."

Cool Description from PSTwo.Net:

And of course, my favorite, and I'm sure it will be many of yours, the Yoda lightsaber scene. If you don't want to know what happens, don't read the rest of this paragraph. Dooku, who is incredibly strong in the force, has electrocuted Anakin, and cut off his arm, and sliced up Obi Wan a bit. At that moment, the camera shows the corner entrance to the room.

Suddenly, a small shadow of a tiny person walking with a cane shows up. At this point, the audience of nearly all full-grown men begins to giggle with glee. Around the corner walks master Yoda. Dooku greets him, to which Yoda replies "Dooku!" …more anticipating giggles… Dooku tries a couple of times to hurl lighting at Yoda, but Yoda simply absorbs the lightning with his bare hands.

Dooku then repeatedly tries hurling things in the room, scrap metal, boxes, chunks of the building, at Yoda. Every time, Yoda effortlessly stops the objects with the force, and tosses them calmly to the side. Dooku then says something like 'Well, we're obviously not going to settle this by comparing our strength in the force. Rather, with our skills with a lightsaber.' Dooku activates his (red, not purple) lightsaber. Then the camera moves to Yoda.

He drops his cane, pulls his cloak aside, and pulls his lightsaber to his hand using the force. Yoda then unleashes a combination of spins, slashes, and jumps so overwhelming I think my heart stopped. Dooku's desperately trying to block Yoda's attacks as Yoda spins on the ground, lightsaber extended, jumps and flips over Dooku, unleashing repeated blows. I'd have to see the scene several more times to be able to fully describe what he does, but it's fricking awesome. I only wish it was longer.

Throughout this whole scene, people in the theatre were groaning in glee and shouting obscenities in amazement. Little Yoda can kick some serious ***. The fight ends with Dooku dropping a pillar in Anakin and Obi Wan's direction, only to have it intercepted and tossed aside by Yoda, as Dooku escapes. The audience released a collective "WOW". Every action scene is pulled off beautifully, and it they will give you thrills and chills that you haven't had for a long time.

Judge me by my size do you? Yoda is going to kick arse. I can't wait to see him fight. I am not worried about the fight scene, I think Lucas can pull it off. The only thing I am worried about is I heard the Yoda jumps onto Dooku's shoulders, I think that might look stupid.

PENDO!

If only Yoda would kill Dooku in the " Cave " on Dagobah in Ep3.

Someone very famous said at the convention..."when I was told yoda was going to be in a fight scene, the first thing that popped in my head was a pack of clone troopers opening blast doors and saying, 'where is he', to then look down at him with a puzzled look. To then laugh among themselves. And just like magic to a live audience, in other words, when they are not looking, that is when he kills you." Anthony C-3po

is it just me, or in the conveyor clip did Annie slice Watto in half? it makes sense, because in the trailer, you see Watto go zooming down towards Dooku. maybe its just me though. :)

Err, Watto? You mean the Geonosian Warrior, right? Yeah that was cool, ya thought Maul getting cut in half was cool. That Geonosian is sliced in half from gullet to groin. Very cool. :D

That's interesting since the Geonosian Warrior that comes with the Deluxe Anakin figure obviously seperates at the waist just like the POTJ Darth Maul and Deluxe Maces Battle Droid.

I guess having one that literally split up the middle would have been a bit too graphic huh? :D

That was absolutely my favorite part of the new footage I saw! Anakin diced those bugs and the machines got the strays. One stamping machine stamped a bug on molten metal.....very cool.

Yeah yoda in that image doesn't look to scale at all.. i think george is taking this whole thing the wrong way... but it's his movie... i think more people will laugh and think its a "joke" when they see yoda and him go at it then take it serious which could hurt the movie. however according to sources who have seen the movie, say this is the best part and its done so well...

but in my opinion i just think the new star wars films are kind of week because everything looks so CGI and so fake, i mean even yoda, watching yoda with frank oz's magic was great and seeing him in episode 1 was nice as a puppet as well, because it gave him that tangible look like u could touch him. but with ep2 being all cgi (yoda) he looks like one of those cities, so fake and he looks like something that is 2 dimensional but painted to look 3D i don't know just my opinion...

05-08-2002, 02:39 PM
i take this back.. i just looked at the image... and well when looking at the SPOILER clip.. well i made a mistake...

awesome... simply awesome i take back everything i said bad in the above post... i would have never thought the action would have looked that good...

Yoda looks like some bloated, seasick Italian guy named Guido. Put him in a "wife beater" and the picture's complete. Me no likey.

Okay... it comes up as a bunch of script for me. Oh, well... no big deal. I think I would have been a little scared listening to those roars of delight from the "cowpokes" in the audience. This, my friends, is exactly why I didn't want to go on the first day the film is coming out.

That was awesome! Cowpokes aside. It looks to be a great sequence in the movie.

Hmm..well, if it's not working try to do the 'right-click', 'save target as' and save it to your desktop, or just reload the page and select the link again. It should work..

Glad everyone is enjoying it! This movie is going to put an entirely new light on Yoda.

"Away put your weapon, I mean you no harm." Yoda, Empire...

Yea RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I always knew there was more to the little green guy than we had guessed. Although this makes the events of Ep3 even more mysterious. I am wondering how Vader and Palpatine manage to escape with their lives with Yoda being such a master swordsman. Time will tell.

Good point, but no matter how good a swordsman he is he couldn't take on a hundred stormtroopers at once. At some point, I'm sure he realizes that he can't win the battle alone and so he goes into hiding.

Strong is he with the Force; but not that strong...":)
