A little boy wrote a letter to Yoda to prove to his family that Yoda is real -- and Yoda wrote back.

Will Compton, who is five years old, says he loves Yoda.

He told his family he would write to him, and sent him a note via the US Postal Service, which said, “I love you Yoda.”

His mom wrote a note for him, explaining that he loves Yoda and would like a response.

They popped it in the mailbox, and didn't really expect a response.

But  a postal worker found it and ran with it – writing back a note from Yoda, which said “Of course I am real… Believe in yourself.”
