Either we just slipped into a wormhole, taking us back to 1998 or Harry Knowles over at Ain't It Cool News just published a "Star Wars"-related rumor.

According to the blogger, Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm are assembling their slate of upcoming movies set in the "Star Wars" universe, and a big part of the plan is standalone movies that center on pre-established characters, the first of which will be Yoda.

That's right. That CGI abomination from the prequels could be getting his own movie, but you should label this strictly as "rumor" for now. Knowles has not been known for his accuracy when it comes to this kind of scoop, especially in the last few years. But the man is well-known for a reason, so keep it in the back of your mind.

But why Yoda when there are so many other characters in the "Star Wars" universe worth exploring further? »
