There’s a rumor going around that Yoda could appear in “Star Wars: Episode VII” as a Force Ghost.

Force Ghosts are the “holograms” that have appeared in previous “Star Wars” installments. Obi Wan famously appeared in the original trilogy for Luke Skywalker.

“The Force ghost was the soul and essence of a deceased Force-sensitive who denied the will of the Force upon death, yet was able to interact with the living, albeit not physically. Some Sith Lords learned similar techniques, which in some cases allowed them to physically interact with their environment,” reads the Star Wars Wiki.

According to The Metro, a source believes that Yoda might appear in the upcoming film.

“Our DC Entertainment Source has sent in a couple of tidbits of information with mention that Star Wars: Episode VII will feature Force Ghost Yoda,” the source said. “We’re told that Yoda will have words with Luke Skywalker about a rising unbalance in the force and the need to preserve the Jedi.”

The J.J. Abrams-directed film will be released Dec. 18, 2015.
