Yoda Getting Own Movie, Maybe
So who would win in a street fight between Yoda & Chuck Norris? You bey your Jar Jar Binks it would be Yoda! I own every one of the Star Wars movies. It helps me get in touch with my inner geek. And after giving it some thought there is no other Star Wars character that should be getting his own movie. He has suffered much for his craft. Here is the story from guardian.co.uk:
An iconic figure he is, beloved of generations of children and adults alike. Now Yoda is rumoured to be getting his own spinoff movie as part of Disney’s new series of Star Wars films.
News of the diminutive Jedi master’s elevation from supporting character status comes courtesy of the US blog Ain’t It Cool News, and follows the announcement of a new trilogy of Star Wars films after Disney purchased all rights to the series for $4.05bn last October.
The studio announced last month that Star Trek director JJ Abrams will take on the first movie, Episode VII, and screenwriters are already in place to take on the two subsequent instalments. However, there have also been regular rumours that Disney plans spinoff films in a similar vein to the plethora of character-based superhero movies that have emerged in the past few years under its wholly-owned Marvel Studios banner. Now it looks as if Yoda could be coming out of retirement as part of plans put in place by new LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy.
“To start with, they’re going to focus on established characters and do solo films. The first standalone film is going to centre upon Yoda. At this stage, specifics are sparse, but Kathleen Kennedy is putting together a Star Wars slate.
So what do you think? Would a Yoda feature film be a good thing?
