The big story

He's small. He's green. He's handy with a light sabre, but terrible at sentence structure. Now it seems that Yoda, Star Wars' diminutive Jedi master, will soon be promoted from supporting character to star of his own movie.

Following news that a new trilogy of Star Wars films are on the way, reports have emerged that Disney is planning more ways to wring the cash cow (cash Tauntaun?) with several other spin-off titles being considered. Yoda is the first established character to get his own movie – but, according to Entertainment Weekly, Han Solo and Boba Fett could be next in line.

Exciting news for Star Wars fans who remain loyal even after George Lucas prequel trilogy – but where will it end? Could Jar Jar Binks be next in line for solo stardom?
