Following the welcome surprise of his appearance in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” the Force ghost version of Yoda could be appearing again in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming “Star Wars: Episode IX” according to a source for The New York Daily News.
The paper claims Yoda will appear in the film and will have a scene with Rey (Daisy Ridley) in which he acknowledges Rey’s success and growth as a Jedi. The scenes will reportedly be shot later this year.
Speaking of legendary characters returning, former “Star Trek” star Jonathan Frakes has reportedly confirmed that a young version of Spock will appear in the upcoming second season of “Star Trek: Discovery”.
Speaking at El Paso Comic Con, Frakes revealed he’s directing the second and tenth episodes of the new season and that second episode includes not only Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike but also young versions of both Spock and his adopted sister (and Discovery leading character) Michael Burnham. They will appear in flashbacks.
Spock has been mentioned a few times in the first season, but hasn’t been shown. At the time of the series, he’s a young science officer onboard the U.S.S. Enterprise under Captain Pike’s command.
“Star Wars: Episode IX” opens December 20th 2019. “Star Trek: Discovery” is expected to return to air towards year’s end or early 2019.
