*NOTE: THIS SITE IS IN NO WAY CONNECTED TO LUCASFILM OR GEORGE LUCAS who owns all rights to Yoda and the other creatures from Star Wars. In fact the use of the string "yoda" in our domain name and the presentation of images from the saga are courtesy of their generosity in allowing us to do so. Our use of the name YodaGuy and registration of the domain YodaGuy.com is NOT intended to imply that Nick was the only "guy" who worked to produce Yoda. There were several people involved in making four versions of Yoda for ESB and more again for versions in ROTJ and PTM. Credit is given to most of them in the making Yoda pages of our movie archive CineSecrets.com. Please read those for further clarification. Our use of the name implies ONLY that Nick Maley is a guy who was involved. Yoda and all creatures for the classic Star Wars trilogy were masterminded by Stuart Freeborn who Nick worked with on and off over a 7 year period. The initial drawing was by Ralph McQuarrie. Other people involved in building Yoda for ESB include Wendy Midner, Graham Freeborn, Ron Hone, Bob Keen and Nick Dudman (who built the new Yoda for PTM).
