With Disney’s acquisition of the Star Wars franchise, and director J.J. Abrams signed on to direct the first of 3 new trilogy of films (Star Wars: Episode VII), what else is Disney considering to make the most of their newly-acquired franchise? It seems they could be looking into a series of spin-off movies.
It had been previously reported by THR that Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg were exploring potential story-lines around the franchise’s supporting characters in a series of their own spin-off movies, and recent rumors may have revealed who the first of these characters will be.
AICN reports that the first of these standalone spin-off films will focus on Yoda. Whether the story will focus on Yoda in his younger days or continue his existing story, it’s anyone’s guess.
Yoda is arguably one of the franchise’s most beloved supporting characters (possibly also Chewbacca) and I, for one, would love to see a story centered around this character. Reportedly, the next character in line could be Jar Jar.
As more details come up, I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated.
