    There is something deeply pleasing about how well these misheard lyrics work into a narrative. It's the feeling of nostalgia, weed and stroke all at once.

    Makes me realize that one of the biggest mistakes the prequels ever made was not keeping Yoda as a puppet. Is it weird to say he actually seemed more believable that way than with CGI?

    I think the mistake was fucking up the Yoda puppet in Episode 1 so bad they just made him CGI from then on.

    Some pure CGI is convincing but it's so few and far between and gets dated so quickly anyway.

    Practical effects, sometimes supplemented with CGI, holds up for a long time.

    Jurassic Park case and point.

    God I actually forgot about Episode 1. In my mind it's always been CGI with the prequels.



    Jesus fuck.



    Puppet from Episode 5 I believe. God this looks way better.

    Maybe CGI wasn't a bad idea then. Guess I was just upset because at the time CGI stood out so much. If it means we don't get puppet monster Yoda then I'm fine with it.

    I've heard the intro before somewhere, before the song starts.

    That little intro noise? It's probably in a free library somewhere, there are a lot of podcasts that use it for their intro

    While CGI has it's benefits and can be incredibly convincing, puppetry has the benefit of being naturally lit by the scene in a way that computers just can't recreate. They also give the actors something to actually interact with, whereas CGI relies largely on their imagination.

    There's actually new techniques aimed at doing just that.

    Also, more interestingly IMO, the reverse. taking actors on a greenscreen and having a light setup around them that's driven by a virtual scene. They can now place actors in accurately lit dynamic CGI scenes. Even tying the lighting to camera movement.

    while it was great to see a puppet again, they de-aged him way too much, the cgi in 2/3 got it right, thank fuck lucas went back and replaced it in 1.

    No, the 'penny for your thoughts' exchange.

    EDIT: It's because this is an extended song from an older video:

    The puppet in episode 1 was atrocious, glad they replaced him with CGI Yoda.

    Oh shit, when I saw the original video I was hoping they'd do an extended version of the Yoda song. Never thought they'd actually do it though

    While that's a benefit of greenscreens, the drawback is that you're taking the actor out of a physical environment and forcing them to rely on their imagination.

    At any rate, both methods have their advantages and disadvantages and either can achieve the film maker's goals if done correctly.

    Very much agreed, if a filmmaker goes overboard and creates something entirely sterile no amount of CGI will pull it back together. Textbook Lucas.

    As far as using a shitton of CGI while still retaining a lot of life and character goes I thought the new Jungle Book movie did an excellent job.

    Looks like they made the mistake of making him look slightly younger. The prequels were only like what like 50 years earlier? When yoda is like a thousand years old?

    Probably why they went back and replaced that puppet with the CG model used in EP2 or EP3 for the Blu-Ray.

    Replacing him in EP1 was originally a test for the EP2 model IIRC, you can see a behind the scenes feature on it in the DVD Release in EP2.

    Yaddle was based off of concept sketch for yoda in the prequel.
