The recently completed, amazingly realistic wax figure of Jedi Master Yoda was brought to a studio in London for designers to plan the final set, which brings to life the hostile swamps of Dagobah as featured in “Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back”.

Yoda’s swamp will feature mossy tree trunks, twisted roots and branches, decaying foliage and swirling fog to perfectly recreate his Dagobah habitat. The scene is one of 11 that will recreate iconic moments from Star Wars Episodes I-VI that feature 16 favourite heroes and villains, including Yoda on Dagobah, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader on the Death Star and Princess Leia in ’s Throne Room, among others.

Although only 66cm tall, Yoda’s figure took a team of 10 artists four months to finish and was recreated using detailed measurements and reference pictures from one of the original models used in the films. His distinctive green skin tone has been achieved with layers of carefully applied oil paint and his wispy grey hairs have been inserted individually by hand.

Work is now underway to bring the rest of the experience to life for a mid-May opening when fans will be able to co-star in some of the most famous scenes in film.
