Getting His Own Movie, Yoda Is?

Ever since Disney bought "Star Wars" and announced they would be putting out stand alone spinoffs in addition to continuing the main storyline, folks have been speculating just what those new films will be about. The origin of Salacious Crumb? The story of the Millennium Falcon making the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs? Jar Jar Binks: The Untold Story?

All great ideas. But now, according to Ain't It Cool News, the real answer has been revealed — and the first "Star Wars" spinoff will actually be about Yoda.

"To start with, they're going to focus on established characters and do solo films," AICN's Harry Knowles said about Disney's plans to expand their "Star Wars" empire. "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."

So these Spin-off's, are just money making as we know

Why to go and ruin the series already DISNEY

I generally don't give too much of a fuck about Star Wars, but I would be interested to see a Yoda movie.

I don't care for Yoda much either. He was never my favourite character. A Han Solo movie would be really cool but a Boba Fett one is a dream come true for me. And you wouldn't have to worry about finding an actor for Boba Fett since he's in his suit almost 24/7. I bet it would be called something simple and clever like "Fett.". But yeah, this is a cash grab for sure. Now that Lucas can't say no after selling to Disney, they can do whatever they please. I had a feeling it would be more than just a continuation of the first trilogy.
