Disney to make character Star Wars films, starting with Yoda

Disney have announces that as part of their ongoing continuation of the Star Wars film franchise they are to make films that expand the universe and concentrate on individual main characters, Yoda being the first.

Clearly inspired by the success, and probable continued success, of the series of films inspired from the Avengers comics, Disney will produce the films based in the star wars universe that look at the individual characters so we can look forward to Han Solo The Movie, Luke and Lia The Movie, and one a number of fans might like, Boba Fett The Movie.

These will be alongside the sequel trilogy that will be made, the first of which will be directed by J.J. Abrams and the first will be released in 2015.

Yoda will be the first to get the stand alone treatment, although there is no word on where this will fit into the overall picture, or during what time line it will take.

Best guesses are a couple of ideas, one to fill in the gap between Episode III and when we first meet him in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back which means the whole film wil be based on the swamp plant of Dagobah.

There is no reason why there couldn't be a few flash back in the film, but for all intense and purposes Yoda was supposed to be alone on this planet before Luke turned up for training, so it could be hard to fill in a full 2 hour movie?

The other is more inline with the X-Men origins style and look at where Yoda came from and how he came into existence, this would be a more interesting movie, and as he's meant to be in his mid 800's in Episode 1 this would be going way back into Star Wars history, and possible leave more a blank sheet for what to do.

Whatever happens lets hope that Disney stay true to the universe, at least as much as Lucas has, and we start getting films that fans as much as , well the original trilogy at least.
