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.
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.
