There was a popular rumor amongst the LDS Star Wars geek circle that Yoda was based off of Spencer W. Kimball. Maybe it was the voice, the mouth, the height, or the wisdom and the ability to move ships with his mind (unverified) that caused the rumor to take hold. While I’m sure that was terribly flattering to the prophet to hear that the little ugly creature from the Empire Strikes Back was modeled after him, it’s a Mormon myth that’s been debunked. Sorry, fanboy Saints.
