A campaign has been launched for a statue of Yoda to be installed in Hereford.

Anthony Murphy started the petition and is aiming to get hundreds of signatures to help progress the idea.

He said:

“Frank Oz was the voice of Yoda. He was born in Hereford. A statue of Yoda in Dedication to Frank Oz would be an awesome tribute to a cultural phenomenon and a great tourist attraction. Erect a statue we must. Sign this petition you will.”
