Another sad day for Star Wars fans … Less than a year after the death of Ralph McQuarrie, comes news of the death of Stuart Freeborn.
Creating Yoda was a team effort. A number of artists, writers and visionaries, including of course George Lucas and Frank Oz, helped bring him to life. McQuarrie’s paintings and Freeborn’s sculpting made Yoda the icon we still love today.
Here is a BBC story about Freeborn: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-21357301
