George Lucas Almost Ruined Star Wars?? - NAH

This article

is reporting that George Lucas did not want Frank Oz to do the voice of Yoda in Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Back.

Obviously a different voice would not have ruined Star Wars and I would argue that Lucas was probably right in trying another voice artist.  I remember the laughter in the theater when we all heard Yoda for the first time and that it was obviously Fozzie Bear.  We now take Yoda as gospel but at the time it was not.  Of course Lucas would have many more opportunities to 'ruin' Star Wars.
