Another entry in "The Empire Strikes Back" Star Wars Uncut project. I always liked this first interaction with Yoda. He has an childlike, impish quality here that you never really see any other time. Richard Harris's performance as Dumbledore in the first two Harry Potter films captures that same quality, where a great thinker and teacher has a curious child right beneath the surface. My animation can also be viewed in higher resolution on Vimeo, here.
