Insights on the creation of Yoda & other Star Wars creatures

In 1978, a team, (lead by Creature Effects Designer Stuart Freeborn), built 4 versions of Yoda. Three of those people, Stuart, his son Graham and myself, were also involved in building the wampa, tauntauns, mynock, ugnaughts and Mos Eisly cantina creatures. Everything written about these events has been compiled by people who were not present at the time, These were mainly writers working from interviews and other info drafted by the publicity department, (and they were rarely around the creature workshop either). Now, you can access first hand information about the TRUE history behind the creation of these creatures via this blog.
