The Force ghost of a popular character from the original trilogy may appear in “Star Wars: Episode 8.” According to a new report, the actor who lent his voice for a popular character of the franchise was spotted at Pinewood Studios, where filming of the movie is currently taking place.

[Spoiler alert]

Frank Oz, the man who was the voice of Yoda and helped with the puppet of the character in the original trilogy was spotted at Pinewood Studios, Making Star Wars reports. Oz also played a role in the prequel trilogy and “Star Wars Rebels” animation series as the voice of the old Jedi master.

In the story, the last time Yoda was seen on screen was as a Force ghost in the 1983 movie “Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.” In case the producers plan to bring the character back in the forth coming movie; it will be either as a Force ghost or in a flash back scene.

Rey (Daisy Ridley) is expected to learn the ways of the Force in “Star Wars: Episode 8” from Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). Will Yoda’s Force ghost help in Rey’s training?

However, It is still not clear if Oz has been called to help with recreating Yoda or if he will be helping with a new character altogether. J.J. Abrams introduced a new set of important characters and planets in his movie. Director Rian Johnson is expected to do the same in the forthcoming movie.

The movie will pick up from where Abrams’ movie left off at Ahch-To. A new picture leaked from the production set of “Star Wars: Episode 8” in Ireland shows the production crew building the huts set from Skellig Michael. The picture posted on Instagram shows that the construction is nearing completion and filming at this location is set to begin soon.
