Default Star Wars Origins: Yoda

What's the first stand alone STAR WARS film to be made?
Quote:
Hey folks, Harry here... There's a whole bunch of movement happening at the Magic Kingdom these days... Mayimbe was talking about Marvel's HULK Plans and how they may affect the 3rd AVENGERS film... We're focused upon the sequel trilogy we've been waiting for most of our entire lives. But the wild success of THE AVENGERS and the anticipated gargantuan STAR WARS with JJ Abrams directing.. it has reformatted alot of Disney's plan. IMAGINEERING had been working up ideas for a grand expansion at DISNEYLAND that was to bring Frank L Baum's OZ into a fully realized extension of the park, and while I'd love to go there... The word I'm hearing now is they've dropped that in lieu of a STAR WARS extension in California Adventure Park. OZ could happen, but only if Raimi's film is a stunning success. But you're not hear for the themepark buzz... or maybe you do care desperately like I do. But really, what's Disney going to be doing with these STAND ALONE films...

Well, to start with they're going to focus on established characters and do solo films, no, not necessarily Han Solo films, but well, **** 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.

We need a film where the Jedi defeat the Sith and the Mandalorians a thousand generations before A New Hope! This or nothing else!!!

I like the idea. Always hated the rumor that another trilogy would be a Pre-PT one, focusing on young Yoda. So, good, this seems appropriate.

Boo to this. It would totally take away from Yoda's mystique. Also, how the hell would anyone empathise with him!?

I second the notion of an Old Republic film (or trilogy), followed by a KOTR adaptation (two parter).

I'd actually like to see a Yoda movie.

While my first reaction is "NOO!" because i kinda prefer Yoda as a mystery, like everything else SW coming up i'm willing to keep an open mind about it. I love Yoda, and i do think he's a great character.

I don't think this would be good, it didn't help Wolverine in the comics or movies I feel it'd have a similar effect on Yoda.

Only just heard about this, they certainly have a huge scope timeline-wise to pluck a story from, but I'm not sure it's a good idea.

Tell that to Claremont's and Miller's fantastic mini-series!!

About a Yoda movie. I love the character, not sure about this movie idea though, his character seems to work best in smaller doses and keeping his mystique is also important. I liked the Seven Jedi idea more.

7 Jedi with Yoda in it would be perfection.

Agreed. As long as they can make it fit nicely within the SW timeline, then I have no reason to complain.

This would be the ideal way to do a solo Yoda movie, having him leading the seven Jedi, or they maybe needn't all be Jedi, it's a way to maybe use one or two Jedi from the PT that didn't get much screen time.

Yeah, considering how old he is they could go back in time and have new jedi in. Maybe we'd see a padawan Yoda? or newly knighted? that could be fun...

Anyone remember this? An old trading card Lucas had pulled because of it implying a bit of Yoda's backstory.

Seeing that Yoda died at age 900, they have flexibility as to where they can place the story.If it were up to me, I wouldn't make it an origin story, but instead cover how he earned the rank of master.Him leading a group of Jedi or warriors, seven samurai style would be excellent.
