Yoda in Japan

by Kensatsukan Gaijin

The Disney company announced recently that they are going to start making new "Star Wars" movies, and this week we learned that Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, and Harrison Ford are going to reprise their roles.

Yoda's character, of course, was voiced by Frank Oz, and had a distinct syntax where he would speak in subject-verb word order.  

Have you ever wondered, then, what Yoda sounds like when he is dubbed in Japanese? 

It turns out that in Japan, Yoda's voice and speech resemble the speech of an old man, but otherwise follow common rules of grammar and sentence structure.
