In a trailer for Kinect Star Wars, I saw Yoda driving a Jungle Speeder and that got me wondering. Can and has Yoda ever piloted a starfighter?

During the Clone Wars, it seems plausible that they could commission a small-sized green Jedi starfighter. Is their any indication that he has piloting experience?

    Yes, he can. He just has to sit on a copy of the Coruscant phone book to reach the controls.

  • I'm pretty certain Yoda could pilot a starfighter while still on the ground...

In Yoda: Dark Rendezvous, a Yoda impersonator is shown on the Holonet piloting a starfighter, as part of a plan to hide Yoda's real location.

Which implies that Yoda could pilot one.

    Hmm. The fact that people weren't freaked out that his impersonator could pilot a starfighter isn't necessarily proof that Yoda himself could fly one.

  • Not a Proof but strong evidence. Otherwise the decoy wouldn't be worth a dime.

    @flq - If I saw a realistic video of a celebrity piloting a helicopter, I'd probably assume they could pilot a helicopter. That doesn't in itself mean they can.

Within the Clone Wars TV series, we see Yoda flying a starfighter on several occasions;


He also has his own Clone Wars 'Jedi Attack Fighter' toy (complete with FIRING MISSILE LAUNCHERS!) although I can't remember seeing him pilot it in show;

In the clone wars tv series he pilots a ship resembling a star fighter but with a ball cockpit and is shorter than other star fighters

  • Which episode? Can you provide a screenshot? Mar 15, 2014 at 15:38
  • @dvk - Screenshot above in my answer. It's shown very briefly in the Season 6 trailer but I've no idea what episode.
