Younger Yoda is this year's hottest character design

A series of stunning new concept art has been released from Star Wars: The High Republic, a published prequel series set centuries before The Phantom Menace. Aimed at adults and children, the series will span novels, books and comics and, crucially, features everyone's favourite Star Wars character – Yoda. 

Yoda is the star of the artwork, depicted as a brooding young(er) Jedi. He's all grown up from the Baby Yoda we know and love but more refreshed than in later episodes – aged a sprightly 700 years old rather than the 900 we're used to. Brooding intensely at the camera, this Yoda full of purpose (wait, is he actually smouldering?), leaving us excited for what the series might hold.
