yoda in the last jedi

In addition to his work with the Muppets and directing a number of good films (including Little Shop of Horrors, What About Bob?, and BowfingerFrank Oz is probably best as the voice and puppeteer behind Jedi Master Yoda in the Star Wars movies. This week, Oz has been doing press for a new documentary that premiered at SXSW titled Muppet Guys Talking: Secrets Behind the Show the Whole World Watched…and that means Star Wars questions.

ducktales teaser featuring donal duck

Earlier this month, Disney unveiled the first trailer for the DuckTales reboot featuring the voices of David Tennant (Scrooge), Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan (Huey, Dewey & Louie), Beck Bennett (Launchpad McQuack), and Kate Micucci (Webby Vanderquack). While the new voices were a bit off-putting for a fan of the original series, I was actually blown away by the retro design style of this traditional 2D animated show.

Now Disney XD has released another short DuckTales teaser focusing on Donald Duck (voiced by Tony Anselmo in the new series) and it just looks fantastic. Watch the Ducktales teaser, entitled “Donald Duck’s Tales,” below!

You can watch it for yourself below.
