Is Yoda going to get his own Star Wars film?


Yoda1While we know J J Abrams is directing the first in a new Star Wars trilogy there are also plans afoot to make standalone movies set in the Star Wars universe.

We have heard Zack Snyder may be involved in a Seven Samurai type Star Wars film and now word is out on the possibility of an established Star Wars character getting his own film.

AICN had the news that Yoda may be the first on the list.

Well, to start with they’re going to focus on established characters and do solo films, no, not necessarily Han Solo films, but well, fuck it… The first Stand Alone film is going to center upon YODA. At this stage specifics are sparse, but Kathleen Kennedy is putting together a STAR WARS slate… I’m wildly curious for more details on the YODA film – would this be a young or old YODA tale?

Knowing that Lucasfilm is doing a series of stand alone character features… I wonder if Joe Johnston has pitched Kennedy his stand alone BOBA FETT film he was talking about after the release of Captain America. Hmmmmm… Now, let’s chase after YODA details… Where’s FRANK OZ? Giggle. Gotta love chasing STAR WARS stories! Oh – and I’ve also heard tale of a JABBA story that Lucas has floated to some of his buddies. But word is YODA is first.

While films focusing on individual characters is a cool idea I am not sure if Yoda is the right choice. Still, he is a damn site better than having a film based on Jabba the Hutt. Boba Fett would have been my first pick.

How do you feel about a Yoda movie?
