As we’ve all seen and heard this past week about the exciting news of Disney and Lucasfilm developing a Star Wars standalone centered around Obi-Wan Kenobi, there was also an intriguing footnote regarding other classic characters.
Apparently, Star Wars standalone movies centered around Yoda and Boba Fett are also in active development, which isn’t the most surprising news in the world as both characters have long been rumored to be getting their own spin-off movies.
According to THR:
The Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone is one of several projects being developed by Lucasfilm and Disney that fall outside the trilogies telling the saga of the Skywalker family. A Han Solo movie is now in the final stages of shooting under new director Ron Howard and Lucasfilm is also looking at movies featuring Yoda and bounty hunter Bob Fett, among others.
Yoda is one Star Wars character that has remained draped in mystery, and that’s just the way we like it! Yoda has no official origin story in Star Wars canon, and he doesn’t really need one. Learning about the little green guy’s childhood isn’t really all that enticing (especially if it involves an Ewok-style planet of little cutesy critters), but there is a way to make a really great Yoda standalone work on a much smaller and more focused scale.
A Boba Fett movie would essentially open up the Star Wars movies to the entire bounty hunter underworld which has been explored in details throughout the former expanded universe and somewhat touched upon in the various Star Wars animated series. After a Boba Fett movie, said underworld would be great fodder for the long-awaited Star Wars TV spin-off.
With all this excitement surrounding standalone films, we secretly hoped for a Darth Vader spin-off. As we browse through the wonderful archives of YouTube, we stumbled upon this amazing gem that we must deem as one of THE BEST fan made trailers we’ve seen to date and it’s brilliantly stars our favorite Sith Lord!
