Ovation: Yoda Get His Own Movie He Might.


yodaI love “the movies”.  I always have.  Since my younger years when I worked in the concession stand at a nearby four-screen theater I’ve preferred the experience of watching a story unfold on a big screen.  Of course the movie going experience has changed dramatically since those days and, honestly, I don’t find it to be quite so enjoyable.  Recently, however, I’ve found myself in a large theater with only a handful of other people and was reminded of exactly how much I enjoy the escape of the theater experience.

It reminded me of a time when I was the only person in the theater for a showing of the original Star Wars.  It was the last show on a weeknight and the movie had been out for quite a while so there was no one there.  There was some union rule or law that said we had to pay the projectionist (do they still have those?) to show the movie whether there was anyone in the audience or not.

Star Wars has since become a bit of a national treasure.  And, with the sale of LucasFilm, LucasArts and Industrial Light and Magic to the Walt Disney Corporation last fall, it’s likely that we’ll be seeing more of the characters who populate the Star Wars universe.  In fact, there’s already a rumor that Yoda, who appeared in the second and third original films, as well as all three prequel trilogy films, may be the first to star in a stand-alone movie of his own.

Not unlike what Marvel has done with Thor and Captain America, drawing from an enormous amount of already familiar characters Disney could release a new Star Wars related film every couple of years.  The rumor mill is raging with speculation about new movies.  Will they be stand-alone stories?  Will there be a developing story line with recurring characters, etc. based upon each film’s success?

Since Yoda was more than 900 years old in the original trilogy, it seems likely that a new film about  him might center on his younger days.  Because the audience knows little of his history, this could be an opportunity to create one for him.  Maybe there’s a Mrs. Yoda!

It will be interesting to see what Disney does with the characters that it’s acquired.  They’d be foolish to let them be ignored when there is such a large pre-existing fan base.  It’s time to introduce them to a new generation.

But let’s hope they forget about JarJar Binks.

  1. Surely it’s time for a 3D, 48FPS digitally remastered “Ewoks: Caravan Of Courage”


  2. Oh I certainly agree about Jar-Jar!


  3. Read a bad joke today. Why did Hans Solo not like his steak? He thought it was Chewie. Groan. A Yoda movie is prone to make money, but do you want to hear him talk for a full movie?


  4. The Captain & Tenille for your trivia question. I would want to watch a movie with a back story for Yoda.
