Getting your wee ones to head to bed can be a chore. But what if the kids had a goodnight phone call from Spider-Man or Elsa from Frozen to look forward to? Polygonthat Disney's Bedtime Hotline, which allows kids to hear good night messages from classic Disney characters like Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald Duck, is back in operation. Children will now also be able to hear from newer characters from the Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar universes, such as Yoda from Star Wars, Spider-Man, Woody from Toy Story and more.
Parents can reach the toll-free hotline at 1-877-7-MICKEY. This will lead them to an automated messaging system, where they'll then be able to select from a list of characters. The wide selection of characters will ensure that your kids don't get bored.

Rather than a simple "goodnight", the bedtime messages are all uniquely written to suit each character. Yoda's message in particular seems crafted to transport the listener to a galaxy far, far away. "Close your eyes and reach out with your feelings," says Yoda in the message. "Feel the force surround you. Like the blanket it is. In your dreams, other places you will see. The future, the past, old friends, the new, See you there, I will. For the force is with you. Always."
Unfortunately, the bedtime hotline isn't permanent -- it will close operations on September 30th. If you fear that missing out on nightly subliminal messaging from Disney will disrupt your offspring's REM cycles, you could invest in a.
The Return of the Jedi - (TMC): The secrets of Yoda
Thursday, May 24, TMC honors the Star Wars saga by broadcasting these 2 parts in a row. Since its appearance in The Empire Strikes Back, the little green creature has become an emblem and a key figure of pop culture.
A green star high as three apples
Sixty-six centimeters, not one more. "Size does not matter ... Look at me Is it by my size that you can judge me?" , Yoda launches to his pupil, Padawan Luke Skywalker. The most famous of the Jedi masters was born under the pencils of Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston, the artistic director and special effects designer of the first trilogy, based on Lucas' indications. "George wanted Yoda to look like a nice little Oracle-like alien," remembers Johnston. The famous inhabitant of the planet Dagobah has gone through several stages, from the garden gnome to the Scandinavian troll, before becoming the green creature with big ears that we know. For the anecdote, Yoda's eyes are inspired by those of Albert Einstein.
The Force is with him
You get acquainted with Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back. Obi-Wan Kenobi sent Luke to train him and fight the Empire. The arrival of the wise old allowed Lucas to explain the concept of the Force, consisting of a bright side and, especially, a dark side, to which Darth Vader succumbed. In a way, the yin and yang (basic principles of Taoism) applied to the universe of Star Wars. Without Yoda - which represents the balance between good and evil - to explain this esoteric philosophy, one would, let's face it, a little to the west.

"When 900 years like me you will have, less fit you will be", launches Yoda to the student Luke Skywalker. Often mischievous and full of humor, sometimes sententious, the aphorisms of the master are based on a grammatical construction (object-subject-verb) which has nothing imaginary. This particular structure concerns 1% of the languages spoken in the world, according to linguist Russell S. Tomlin. For example, the warao in Venezuela has similarities with the "Yoda speaking"
An immortal icon
If he is not the most impressive character in the saga, he is one of the most endearing. And when he handles the sword, he assures the show, against Dooku (The Attack of the Clones) or the infamous Palpatine (The Revenge of the Sith), even if the duel had been dreamed Yoda against Darth Vader. Of anthology, too, Luke's training with Yoda perched on his back. These scenes are now part of our collective imagination. It is therefore not surprising that J.J. Abrams, at the helm of the ninth installment, after making the seventh, plans to bring back Yoda, even if he died in The Return of the Jedi .
