Michiyo Yasuda's terrific work with the studio spans from her earliest days with work on 'Castle in the Sky' (1986) to Hiyo Miyazaki's final film, 'The Wind Rises' (a few years ago).

“What I like best is when I am building up the colors in my head, thinking of how to get the tone worked out,” Yasuda said during her interview with the L.A. Times. “Color has a meaning, and it makes the film more easily understood. Colors and pictures can enhance what the situation is on screen.” RIP Michiyo Yasuda, you will be missed!

Erik Bauersfeld, the talented actor who supplied the iconic voice for the renowned rebel commander Admiral Ackbar in Star Wars - Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars - Episode VII: The Force Awakens passed away Monday at 93 years old, due to natural causes.

When asked about his most famous line Bauersfeld disclosed to the San Francisco Chronicle in 2012:

"The fans who write say they'll never forget 'It's a trap!' I don't even remember how I said it. It's not that I don't like it or don't respect it. I just don't have time to be a fan and see it 10 times or 20 times."

Farewell indeed, Admiral, your voice will echo on into eternity.
