WATCH: ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Clip Featuring Frank Oz as Yoda

'Star Wars Rebels'Lucasfilm has released a couple of clips from its upcoming episode of ‘Star Wars Rebels,’ titled ‘Path of the Jedi.’ The first clip is titled ‘Yoda’s Guidance’ and features Kanan telepathically (?) receiving a message from Master Yoda — whom Kanan believed to have been long deceased — voiced in the January 5 episode by the legendary Frank Oz, who, of course, originated the role of Yoda.

The second clip, titled ‘Nothing and Everything’ has Kanan setting Ezra on a quest, which is probably what is hinted at by the episode’s official synopsis: ‘Ezra must face a great challenge as part of his growth as a member of the team.’
