    According to Harry at AICN, the first stand-alone Star Wars movie will center around Yoda:

    Hmm... we're going to need a "stand alone movie" forum.

    I like Yoda. His wisdom is great, but in doses. That's what makes him so great. I'd rather not have to hear more about him then I have to.

    Plus, I can't imagine listening to that dislexic speak for two+ hours straight. It would drive me bonkers.

    Not likely, most likely a bonus to the Blu-Ray. Kind of like the R2-D2 movie. Just Sayin'. Move Along. ;)

    If Frank OZ Directs and performs a solo YODA movie I could get behind it.I always dreamed that YODA was from the green planet like E.T. and the E.T.s would be living in harmony with The YODAs.

    Oh god, please tell me Harry can tell the difference between a stand alone movie and the CN Lego thing. :oops:

    personally, far more interested in the failure of a certain sarlacc pit. nothing like getting a decade ahead of ourselves. anyone else have their doubts harry will live to see any stand alone star wars?

    Mmm, a bad feeling about this I have. Annoying his talking might become in too large a dose.

    I've always liked the mystery surrounding Yoda's origins. I don't know if I'd like to see more of it on screen.

    If it is true, I'd like it to be about a younger Yoda in his prime, but if that's the case we know he won't be fighting any Sith. Who could possibly pose a threat to Yoda? A dark Jedi with no Sith ties? Harder to answer, meditate on this I will.

    Could be an animated film like The Clone Wars instead of live action.

    Give it to Frank Oz, hell have him help craft the story, and I'd be quite interested. Without him, not so much.

    I don't want to see a Yoda origins movie, it could be when he's already a Master or Knight. No need to know what planet he comes from or what species he is.

    I'd like if it were retconned that Yoda was alive before the last of the Sith went into hiding. He would be the only Jedi alive who had first hand experience with the Sith and it would explain why he knew of the rule of two. We could see how Yoda and other Jedi drove them to near extinction.

    I don't put much value into much of these rumors at this point.

    I think there are probably a bunch of pitches at this point.

    I will say I HATED the way Yoda was portrayed in the prequels with all the stupid back flipping and such. If I have to see more that nonsense, you can count me out. Yoda(or the emperor)for that matter wouldn't even have to use a lightsaber.

    I thought they were so powerful in the force, that a lightsaber would seem "quaint" to them.

    I love Yoda but I don't think he could carry a movie. His whole existence in the films is to be kind of a wise old advice giver, not a main character. Without having someone to be a wise sage to I think he serves no purpose, not meaning he's a bad character but that's his whole point.

    "When 900 years old you reach" could be changed to something like "When 1900 years old you reach".

    Or

    "The Sith have been extinct for a millennium" could be changed to something like "The Sith have been extinct for 500 years".

    I don't like the idea of retconning anything from the movies, but I would love Yoda to be the reason the Sith went into hiding and were thought extinct.

    This.
    That being said I think Harry Knowles spins a lot of crap, so I'd take this one with a pinch of salt.

    I remember this rumor from years ago, a stand alone film about Yoda saving the Republic. These stand alone movies are going to be great, and you know they are coming. Yoda, Vader, Fett, the possibilities are endless.

    I have a lot of friends and family members that are just casual Star Wars fans and they all seem to love Yoda more than any other Star Wars character. I think this would be a good direction to go for the first spin off movie.

    Really taking this with a shaker full of salt right now.

    If the standalones are to tie into the ST, Avengers-stylee, then a Yoda film makes no sense.
