Yoda Stories: The Movie

05 Feb, 2013, 18:58 | Posted by: jp-30 | Source: i09
i09 (via AICN) is reporting a standalone Yoda movie may be in the works.

Disney has plans to make a collection of stand-alone movies that will pepper the years in between the big episodic movies.

This way Disney can take advantage of any timeline or untapped character backstory they want. Now comes the rumor: AICN is reporting that the first stand alone film is going to center upon Yoda. And while they don't have any other additional information beyond that rumor, they're fairly certain that this is fact.

Here's a link to the original AICN story, but it's pretty much unreadable.

The clip of Bob Iger in this article confirms that both Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are writing standalone films. Each film will be "derived from great Star Wars characters."

How many websites will report this rumor using exaggerated Yoda backwards-speak in their headline? Start counting.

Update: Much of the above is confirmed true on starwars.com - Kasdan and Kinberg are writing two standalone Star Wars movies. The lead roles are yet to be announced.

    epic plot outline



    rather than take out the Nazi-isms, rather make it a crossover with Indy and make Yoda into the archvillian.

    Herr Yoda - "Verdampt Archäologen mit ihren verdampt Peitschen und fantastischen Hüten."

    Indy - "Never - never insult the hat Yoda."

    Mace in a poor French - "Han is that you? Where is Mme Chewie?"

    Indy/Han - "He's dead. Herr Yoda here killed him."

    Mace - "Vamos a matar el conchetumare!"

    Indy - "Bueno, por favor!"

    Herr Yoda - "Achtung! Töten Sie sie alle!"

    Do they even have England in it? Space England? No?



    I'd have to imagine so; otherwise, where the heck did every other Imperial Officer in the original film come from?

    Yoda Youth Force

    Herr Yoda - "Ein Film für mich, wünsche ich nicht. Ein Windu-Film ist, ein besserer Ausflug."

    Goering - "Yavol Herr Yoda, yavol."

    Mace enters the room and says in broken German - "Herr Yoda is Fraulein Chewie Force Sensitive?"

    Herr Yoda - "Nein! verweigert habe ich, dieser dumme Anspruch!"

    Mace mixes up languages - "Que?"

    Yoda - "No habla espanol, por favor. Sieg Hiel. Hiel Seeth Lorda Eetler."

    You know what. We're on to something here. Take away all the Nazi-references and we might just have the best damn movie the starwars univerise has seen since 1983 or whatever.

    I imagine it like this. Yoda grows up on the planet Space-Prussia, appropriatly named Raumplaaatz, working at the local patent office for 50 years, until the neighbouring german planet, resembling Space-Bavaria, also named something silly, invades and kills of his family. Seeing the futility of human/yoda-species life, he's of the grand adventure resulting in him coming into contact with the Jedi order. Being just a kid at 75, he's accepted and invests his time in the Jedi order. Until that collapses because of some Sith chancellor and a clone army and whatever. And decides to screw everything and just live out his life on some jungle planet and die pointlessly.

    The End.

    Cue the imperial march on balalaika, sitar and tabla!

    Yoda backwards-speak?
    I just though that his native tongue was German

    I just though that his native tongue was German, and that he just kept the verbs last in the sentence since he's god damn Yoda and is above grammar.
    All human planets can't have English as a language, in StarWars right? No German speaking planets, but English speaking? Do they even have England in it? Space England? No?

    Why don't they get Kasdan to pen Indiana Jones 5 and end the Ford era of that franchise on a high note while there's still time? Star Wars has enough damned installments.

    someone commented elsewhere that Yoda might not be able to carry an entire film on his little green shoulders alone - I tend to agree

    "A film for me, I do not want. A Windu film be, a better jaunt."
