First 'Star Wars' Stand-Alone Movie to Center on Yoda?

Rumors have surfaced that the first wave of solo projects from Disney's sci-fi franchise will kick-off with the Jedi master.

First stand-alone Star Wars Film to center Yoda?
Following the news that Zack Snyder was not involved with the first stand-alone Star Wars project last month, said to be based on Seven Samurai, new rumors have emerged that Yoda will be at the center of the first stand-alone spin-off film in the Star Wars Universe.

Other characters said to be getting their own films over the next decade include Boba Fett and Han Solo . George Lucas himself is said to have pitched an adventure that revolves around Jabba the Hutt. None of these films will be directly tied into J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, or the trilogy that it is kick-starting.

Nothing has been confirmed by Disney or Lucasfilm. There are absolutely no details in regards to the Yoda movie. It isn't known if he will be a Muppet or CGI, or if he will be young or old. All that is known is that Yoda is going to be first in this new universe of stand-alone adventures.

Star Wars: Episode VII is in development and will hit theaters in 2015, so plans for these other film are likely to be delayed for years to come. We likely won't see the Yoda movie until at lease 2020.

    It would be cool to see the Star Wars universe go into the samurai direction

    I heard rumors it'll be about Yoda (puppet, not CGI) and Kermit the frog will have a cameo with a few other Muppets...

    I can get on board with this. Easily Yoda's one the the greatest Star Wars characters and I know a lot of people, including myself, would love to see some back story on him.

    perhaps it's because I'm trying to function on less than three hours of sleep, but I am totally confused by these spin offs. It seems like they're trying to do much more than is needed.

    I can get behind this idea since I do like it.
    I would like to see Zack's version, this, J.J's, or anyone else that feels the need to direct a Wars film. Though I won't be holding my breath.

    @thedude-abides I'm right there with you on a Boba Fett spin off. Wasn't Joe Johnston in talks for that at one point or another? Something else I'd love to see: Anything dealing with the Mandalorians. They've been a longtime favorite of mine.

    I bet theyre gonna troll us with ideas for the next 2-3 years until episode VII drops. Honestly, as a star wars fan, the less I know the better. This is one movie I want to be surprised by

    I doubt it highly. There seem to be three ways to do it. 1. Tell the story of Yoda before the movies took place, when he was a younger and even more agile Jedi (or Jedi in training), but I think people would be pissed because people got angry when Yoda was jumping around throwing his lightsaber and stuff. 2. Yoda's adventures on Degobah (a subanswer of #1, just in between ep. 3 and 5). and 3. a contemplative, meditation on the force and what it means. "My Dinner with Andre" meets Star Wars. Interesting? possibly. Likely? No sir.

    I can't be the only one that thinks people are just talking out of their arse. "I heard there was a Star Wars movie about the making of the first lightsabre." Says someone familiar with the matter.

    anyone else think they are just creating these rumors to gauge a reaction and see what people think and then go from there? i'm sure there are SO many plans of where to go, but they are feeling the fans out to see what should be first...
