Yoda, Han Solo and Boba Fett Movies?

There are rumors that a standalone Yoda, young Han Solo and Boba Fett films are a possibility. Although these are just rumors (official report below), however a Yoda movie is the most likely of the ones noted. OK, a young Han Solo movie would be awful! You cannot recast Han Solo, he is my favorite film hero and no should ever play the character other than Harrison Ford, except in an animation role. A Boba Fett film could be cool, and might even work well because his character has been developed in the Clone Wars series. A movie Yoda is not something I want to see. Starting a completely CGI character that could not easily use motion capture would turn out terribly. Yoda needs to be a mysterious character and no further development needs to be made. Disney, please do not make Han Solo and Yoda movies! Make the "Seven Samurai, or Boba Fett films, those could work.

Here is the Entertainment Weekly report.
"The Han Solo story would take place in the time period between Revenge of the Sith and the first Star Wars (now known as A New Hope), so although it’s possible Harrison Ford could appear as a framing device, the movie would require a new actor for the lead — one presumably much younger than even the 35-year-old Ford when he appeared in the 1977 original. The Boba Fett film would take place either between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, or between Empire and Jedi, where the bounty hunter was last seen plunging unceremoniously into a sarlacc pit. Exactly who would play him isn’t much of a complication – in the original trilogy, he never took off his helmet. And in the prequels, we learned he was the son of the original stormtrooper clone, played by Temuera Morrison, who’s still the right age for the part if his services were required."

What do you think of this news? Please comment below. Remember these are just rumors and could even be confirmed false in the near future. 
With Valentine's day coming up I would like to know if the readers would like to see a Top Fictional Couples list?

I was originally going to post one of the Reader's Choice picks today but I thought this news needed to be posted. Please check back tomorrow for my review of the recent Clone Wars episode and next week I will post your reader's choice picks.

Below are some videos about the rumors.

  1. I'm not entirely sure what I think about the new developments yet. I wouldn't mind the Han Solo film if they followed the books about him but I don't want them disregarding even more canon. However, I would much rather see the other film ideas(like the Seven Jedi one and maybe the Boba Fett one), then the other two since they might be harder to make.

    Yes, you should do a post like that on Valentine's Day(I was planning to do the same). :)

  2. *horrified screaming* This is why I've been so afraid for the Star Wars fandom/canon! I don't want any of these movies. I don't want more movies! AHHHHHHH I'M SO MAD RIGHT NOW AND I JUST GOT OUT OF BED!!!

    Yes, do a top couples post, that would be awesome!!!! That's actually a great idea, would you mind if I did something similar on my blog?


  3. A top fictional couples post would be cool! :)

    I'm not sure what to think of this news. I mean, I love Han and Boba terribly, so it's not like I wouldn't like to see more about them, but then again, I'm afraid of them messing it up. I really don't want to see a Yoda film, because I like his mystery, personally. But, we'll see what they do; unfortunately, it's probably going to be a disaster.



  4. I also gave you the "Very Inspiring Blogger Award" this morning on my blog; you deserve it!


  5. I heard this report as well and I really don't like it. It's never possible to have too much Star Wars, but I really feel like this will take away from the new movie both in budget and uniqueness.

    If anything I think Disney should focus on the main new trilogy, take a small break, and then create a new trilogy (or 6 movie series) about the Old Republic. None of the fans REALLY want these standalone movies but all fans want the Old Republic movies.

  6. I would like to see a couples list . And I agree, They should not make any new Star Wars movies at all.

  7. I don't know what to think :P
    Yes, you should do it, I wanted to do the same too! :O

  8. @Shena Tokala: Even if they follow the books, I don't like the idea of another actor playing Han though. Thanks, I will make a list then. :)

    @Jamie: Basically that's what think about a Han Solo movie! Yes please do. I would love to see your list!

    @Alexandra Lanc: Completely agree, any of these films should never be made, except maybe a Boba Fett movie.

    @Jordan: I agree, a Old Republic is what we want and need, not some Han Solo or Yoda prequel.

    @Vincent the awesome: While I am not adverse to new films, these are not the ones we need.

    @Solace Utara: Thanks, I will post a couples list. :) Looking forward to your post.
