today i learned – tues 10th oct 2017

it’s an amazing day everyone! 😬 it’s star wars trailer day!! (it was possibly star wars trailer day yesterday … but i was in wales 🙃)

in honour of the best day ever … here’s a star wars fact that blew my mind! 🤯 (i don’t know if you’ll be able to see that emoji) also … the trailer is down there ⬇️ so read on!

#tdil our little friend yoda was nearly played by a monkey! 🐵

apparently, amongst the hardcore star wars crew, this isn’t particularly new information … but as a dude that just really enjoys star wars, it is news and it’s mad.

the little dude was going to debut in the empire strikes back in the 80’s … they had planned to make him wear a mask and carry yoda’s cane 😂

not gonna lie, after seeing the photos of the planned masked monkey … i’m very glad that they hired jim henson to make them the world’s first animatronic muppet (two more things that i learned!)

anyway, he looked like this:

literally scarier than it 😂🤡 jim henson for the actual win! 👍🏻

right, the bit that you actually scrolled down for, as promised, here is the trailer for star wars: the last jedi 🤺

that’ll do me for today! i hope you enjoyed!

much love 😍 #tdil
