I like this Origami Yoda! I did not know that five folds make something great! I think ages 5-8 can make this model.Keep making this model to get to the next level of other Origami figures; this would make a great start for beginners of Origami.

hey just wanted to say that i just finished reading your book and i loved it! totally made my day :D was also curious if the movie based off the book is actually planning to be made? Wanted to say i’m a huge fan and hope you write more books like this one. Thanks :]

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Thanks a lot!
No, there’s no movie in the works yet! It may never happen. But it’s fun to think about. I like to think about who would play Mr. Howell…

some one who looks like jabba…

  Luke Skywalker wrote @

You’re book is awesome!
By the way, is this book based off your childhood? I mean, Tommy’s name is the same as yours. Tell me, or my dad will use the force choke on you!

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Yes, a lot of the book is true true true … in various ways. But, no, I’m not Tommy. I might be another character though….

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Wait … your Dad is Darth Vader? I guess I better tell you. The answer is … yes!

  Matthew wrote @

If you really are Luke, what year were you born in? (What galactic year)

  AustinM wrote @

Than if you aren’t Tommy, than you are probobly Dwight!

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Maybe so…

  eli wrote @

  eli wrote @

Can you put Darth vader in number 2.

  AustinM wrote @

This one is to easy I folded the deluxe but I take my simple yoda 2 school and ask if people need advice and if they say yes, Yoda gives em advice.

  josh benson wrote @

  AustinM wrote @

Cool! We have so much in common Josh!

  Javier wrote @

Wow this is really simple! Hey Tom, could you send a link to your favorite origami website? I would like to see what stuff you like to fold and some stuff I could maybe try!

  Ben da man wrote @

How do you get colored rectangle origami paper?

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

You can but origami paper at a craft store. It’ll be square, so you’ll have to cut it.

You can also but wrapping paper, which will be color on one side and white on the other. That can be pretty useful.
SOMETIMES you can ind paper that is green on one side and brown on the other and that’s perect for Yoda!

  Yoda237$ wrote @

I can’t find SQUARE origami paper that brown on one side & green on the other!


  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Very hard!

The best thing to do is try to find green/brown wrapping paper around Christmas time. But I haven’t found that lately either…

  squirtle1437 wrote @

  Derek wrote @

U need a 4 inch paper to do it!

  IDontPlayMinecraft wrote @

Awesome! A bit different than the one in “Darth Paper Strikes Back”, and I like that! The one in the book with the drawn instructions, I admit, seemed kind of odd folding.

I made several yodas and there is my favorite yoda in the book. There should be a fourth book wrote @

There is one

[…] One of the many benefits of origami is that it works on the same fine motor muscles needed for good handwriting. It’s also creative, artistic, and practically free. You can find instructions for creating your own origami Yoda right here. […]
