Rumor on First Stand Alone 'Star Wars' Film

With new Star Wars movies on the way, word is we'll also see movies based on characters outside the regular episodes.

Now that we know Star Wars: Episode VII is underway with J.J. Abrams directing, what about the other movies? There was talk of movies centered around other characters happening as well. Many of us would love to see a Boba Fett solo movie. That could still possibly happen someday but word just broke on another possibility. A movie based on Yoda.

AICN reports that the first stand alone movie will be centered on Yoda. There's no confirmation on this and it's still way too early to speculate on what time period it would take place. Would the movie be based on Yoda's adventures before Episode I or the time between Episode III and Episode V?

A movie based on Yoda could easily work. Of course it'd be heavy on the CG. It would be an interesting first choice though. People do know who Yoda is and they love the little guy. Head over to AICN to see the other talk of what Disney may do to their parks in regards to Star Wars.

Would you watch a Yoda movie?

that would be awesome

I would not see this movie. Yoda is stupid. I'd rather have it based on Jacen, Jaina and Anakin.

Watch this, I would.

as long as its about Jedi

Posted by War Killer

I'd rather see the Boba Fett movie. Honestly, while I think Yoda is epic in his own right, I don't believe he could hold down his own movie.

Posted by KnightRise

Adult Boba Fett. Adult Boba Fett NOW. Ooooo, and give him as little lines as possible and make each one a memorable qoute! I wouldn't mind seeing Yoda's early years, as long as they show plenty other Jedi of the era. Or facial map and de-age Mark Hamill, Carrie Cocaine, and Harrison Ford's faces on younger bodies a la Avatar

im all for seeing the Fett Man getting his own movie.

Posted by Cavemold

if they explain the young sith lord as well. it could be good

Posted by StMichalofWilson

Why go backward when we should be concentrating on the future? Those don't sound like bad ideas, but still these rumors are just made to keep us distracted.

@StMichalofWilson: i dont think so. I the end of star wars in movie verse is oerfect

Posted by DonFelipe

Oh, please! A Boba Fett movie would be far more exciting.
Besides, I can't see myself enjoying listening to Yoda for too long.

I'd like to see a yoda as the main character, and the why the graphics is today, it would look amazing. I really wanna see Darth Vader as the main villain again, hes my favorite villain in Star Wars.

Posted by Inverno

That would give some insight about his species. So far everything about them is a mystery. At least from what I remember.

Posted by CrimAldan

Han Solo should be the first stand alone. Harrison still gots it. Movie would take place right before VII.

Posted by The Stegman
Curious, I am.
Posted by CrimAldan

@CaioTrubat: Yeah, we know nothing about Yoda's species. And, that's all it is called: the Yoda's species. Nobody knows anything about it. This stand alone movie could create it. That'd be kinda cool.

Posted by AlKusanagi

Wedge Antilles, dammit! Just take some of the Rogue and Wraith Squadron novels and turn them into movies. They're Mission Impossible IN SPACE!!! With X-wings!!!

Posted by Inverno

@CrimAldan: Odd, considering we seen a lot more of others like him in the Old Republic MMORPG and comic book. I think we can attribute the mystery to GL. For reasons known only to himself, he purposely kept everything about them unknown. Now he doesn't hold the rights anymore, we may see what they are. If the movie surrounds Yoda that is...

Posted by SavageDragon

A whole movie of his speech pattern!?. Bodes well this does not.

Posted by lilcraig92

They should make a movie about darth vader about what happen right after his children was born.

Posted by ARMIV2

If they do do a Boba Fett solo movie, can it please be him getting out of that worm pit thing or after? I'd hate to see this really kick-butt Boba Fett movie only to have in the back of my head "oh yeah, he gets taken out like a little punk after this".

Posted by Shark_Repellent_Bat_Spray

How about this for a plan... a 7th film in never made? Episodes I, II & III are destroyed and forgotten and then all the original theatrical releases come out on Blu-Ray? One can dream...

Posted by sheldipez

@Shark_Repellent_Bat_Spray: that's one beautiful dream.

Lets see 18 year old Yoda kicking ass =)

well am sure Disney will miss your 6 dollars

Posted by Green ankh

My son is 6 and he is in the short side. He loves Yoda becouse he is small and strong. I'd lovr to see a Yoda film and it would great for my boy to see that big guys arent always the hero

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

I would be curious of a Yoda movie only if it covered his life from when he was young. Obviously you couldn't cover 900 plus years of events, just focus on the stuff that was most meaningful, like when he was a padawan himself, where he was born (so we can finally know what the hell race he is!), how he rose to Jedi Knighthood and eventually became a Master. That I would definitely go for!

Posted by Crimsonlord53

Yoda gives the mouse 900 years of back story to work with yoda as a padawan or hell even a knight would be cool.

Posted by red_rover

How much cooler was Boba Fett before Episode II? How about the Force before the midichlorians? I think less is more with Yoda. Too much back story bogs down the real story. Forward. Create new myths. It's much harder, much more daring, and much healthier for the franchise.

These are good values to have. I applaud you

Posted by The Average Bear

I feel lie Yodas speech pattern would get hard to listen to in a movie where he was the central character. I would really like a Boba Fett movie. Pretty please

Posted by sora_thekey

I would like to see what happened to him between Episode III and IV

Posted by spidernick21

@ccraft: W-what does this have to do with anything?...AT ALL?! btwthatpictureisbadass

Posted by Timotheus316

I wouldn't like to see a movie completely on Yoda. I wouldn't pay money to see it.

Posted by ThomasElliot

They should have a story where old Yoda is trying to help this one planet stop this devastating, planet destroying space anomaly. They discover this thing we'll call 'midichlorian matter' that creates black holes, to try to stop the anomaly. But they are too late and the anomaly destroys the planet. A native ship led by its passionate captain, Captain Oren, along with Yoda's ship, get sucked into the wormhole created by the midichlorian matter and end up travelling back in time 20 years prior to Episode 1, where the now vengeful captain Oren f**** some s**** up, forever changing the timeline of Episodes 1 - 3 while waiting for Yoda's ship to appear. Old Yoda and the Jedi council must team up to stop Captain Oren.... and Episode 1 - 3 never happened.

Also, Yoda must ensure his parents meet, but runs into some follies when his own mother falls in love with him!

Young Yoda.......nuff said.......

Posted by LeaderVladimir

A movie about Yoda could be interesting and I'm open to the idea of a standalone Star Wars movie.

Posted by Omega Ray Jay

This could be interesting, What I don't want however is a film that completely tells his origins, One surrounding events some time throughout his Jedi career though would be great.

Posted by Onemoreposter

There is such a thing as too much of a good thing. I'd rather them just focus on the new trilogy. I don't need side films, at least not right now.

Posted by Chibi-Iroh

I seriously cannot wait to see this. Yoda is my favorite

Posted by Xwraith

What I really want to see is a movie adaptation of Starfighters of Adumar.

Posted by ssejllenrad


Posted by Darth Paul

My kids think they should do a movie about the adventures of Yoda after his death as a force ghost! LOL!
