Full Disclosure: I have only seen the seven movies.

Who all (if anyone) knew that Yoda was on Dagobah? I'm assuming Obi-Wan only knew, because he was a ghost.

[Edit: This will be followed up with a question about Dagobah and its mention/role in stories outside of the movies; therefore the answer should be about characters considered relevant, knowing Yoda was on Degobah.]

[Edit: Anyone relevant; friend/foe or just knew of him before he went in hiding/exile.]

    That thing in the bog that wanted to eat R2D2 probably knew as well. Feb 15, 2016 at 22:22

I haven't gotten far enough yet to confirm, but this SciFi.SE question has comments and answers noting that R2-D2 traveled to Dagobah with Yoda in season 6 of the Clone Wars TV show, which is still canon in the Disney rehash. I don't know if that means R2-D2 knew Yoda was still there in Empire Strikes Back, but since his memory was never wiped, it's a distinct possibility.


Obi-Wan probably knew it before he died. In Clone Wars Qui-Gon (as a ghost) spoke to Yoda and showed him the tree on Dagoba (where Luke fought Darth Vader hologram later). And as Kenobi used to talk to his former master, he might be told about that.

  • Given that Obi-wan told Luke specifically in Episode V: "You must go to the Dagobah system. Seek Yoda", then it's pretty likely he knew ;)

    @JaneS but that was after he died.

    I still strongly suggest that Obi-wan knew before he died.
