    • The return of [puppet] Yoda!
  • Unprecedented Force [ghost] lightning.



  • Tony predicted that Yoda would show up in this movie. But he also thought that Alec Guinness as Obi-Wan would be there (CGI-resurrected like Tarkin in Rogue One).
    • Pete had it "spoiled" for him by Frank Oz being at the premier.
    • Mentioned: Even Piell.

  • Ranking Yoda's appearances.
  • Neil Scanlan also did special effects on Little Shop of Horrors.
    • Oz was surprised they wanted him to do the puppet I'm addition to the voice.
  • Mentioned: making of Star Wars documentaries "The Director and the Jedi", "From Star Wars to Jedi", and "Classic Creatures: Return of the Jedi".
  • (Controversial) new Force power.
    • Sheev was secretly manipulating everything throughout the series (even things that don't matter).
    • Pete will allow it. More references to Grease.
  • Luke's reaction to Yoda showing up. Yoda calls everybody young.
  • Referenced: Jeff Bridges in The Fisher King, "Well excu-u-use me!" (Steve Martin).
    • Could Steve Martin work in a Star Wars movie? Sure.
  • Both Tony and Alex can come back tomorrow.

  • Tony: ...excuuuse Shmi!
