First stand-alone 'Star Wars' movie to star Yoda
Report says Jedi master will get his own film
Have any of you guys read any of the books that have been written? Why can't they just use those instead of making stuff up? wouldn't that be better?
Hmm... Seems like overkill to me. Yoda is a great character, but personally, I think that he works better in a supporting role. Jabba the Hut would be such a bizarre choice for a spin-off film, I can't even imagine what it could be like; trying to make him into some kind of anti-hero would be a terrible idea and you couldn't exactly do an "action film" where your main character is a slug. That said, if they choose to approach it as smaller-scale, character-driven crime film, then it might actually be interesting. Who knows?
No matter how you look at it though, making a new Star Wars film "every two or three years" is a terrible idea. I'm sure we're going to get a few great films out of this (especially with names like Michael Arndt and J.J. Abrams involved), but no one wants to watch a movie that was forced into production just to meet a quota.
I'm not necessarily opposed to stand alone spin off movies... but that would require picking the right character and having a good story with good supporting characters...
Who wants Star Wars if we're not invested in the characters and the story doesn't mean anything to us ?
You can't just crank this stuff out.... you have to have the right people collaborating and taking the right amount of time to come up with good ideas and then putting the attention to detail that's required to pull these movies off... Star Wars should always be done on a pretty grand scale and that requires work...
We DO NOT NEED OR WANT another Indianna Jones 4 !!!!!!
Did you guys even read the article? Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg will be consulting on Episode VII for Abrams, not the other way around.
