In the next episode of Star Wars: Rebels, "Path of the Jedi," that will air Monday, Jan. 5 at 9/8c on Disney XD will feature Frank Oz as the disembodied voice of Yoda.

In an interview with TV Guide, Executive Producer Dave Filoni discussed working with the Muppets and Star Wars legend:

"What's great about Frank, by keeping the voice very present and active, you do feel that it's a watchfulness and that he's speaking to you from afar. And I didn't want anyone to think that he had left Dagobah [the planet where Yoda first trains Luke Skywalker]. It was on the outer rim of what we do, but I think we were able to pull it off."

Authorized viewers can watch the episode early via the WATCH Disney XD app, starting on December 29.
