Stuart Freeborn dies at age 98

Stuart Freeborn, the man behind the creation of the puppets and any type of creatures we saw in movies such as 2001: Space Odyssey and Star Wars passed away today at age 98. In the picture above we see Yoda, Stuart and Irvin Keshner director of the second installment of Star Wars: the Empire Strikes Back. On June 1997 when Star Wars Episosode I was on production, the guys from the creature workshop showed Sturat who was already retired, what were they working on a quarter century after the creation of Yoda. This short was included in the DVD of Episode I.
