Illustration for article titled The Muppets Visited The iEmpire Strikes Back/i Set, And It Was Wonderful

Star Wars and The Muppets have long been linked, thanks to Frank Oz's work bringing the likes of Fozzie, Miss Piggy, and of course Yoda, to life. But the worlds mix a little more closely in this gallery of recently uncovered photos, showing Kermit and Miss Piggy paying the set of The Empire Strikes Back a visit.

Some of the behind-the-scenes snaps are familiar - especially the gorgeous full-colour header above - but the rest have only been recently uploaded to the internet via Imgur, giving us a rare look at some brilliant candid shots of Kermit and Miss Piggy hanging out on the Dagobah set with both the crew and Mark Hamill. Of course they also have a bit of a muck around with fellow puppet Yoda, too! Check out the full gallery below.
