Special effects and creature effects artist Stuart Freeborn died on Wednesday. He was 98.
With a career that spanned over 50 years and nearly 100 projects, Freeborn was considered a master of his craft before taking on the project that would make him a legend: Star Wars. He worked on all three films in the original trilogy, and many thought that he worked his own impish features into one of his most important creations: Yoda. In addition to bringing Yoda to life, Freeborn and his team were responsible for Jabba the Hutt, Chewbacca, the Ewoks, tauntauns, wampas, and most of the creatures in the Mos Eisley Cantina.
Freeborn's other genre-related work included heading up the makeup department on the original The Omen; the ape-like creatures from 2001: A Space Odyssey; 1960's The Hands of Orlac; and four Superman films.
