Now that we have J.J. Abrams confirmed to direct the 2015 Star Wars Episode VII, the internet is not wasting anytime speculating what character will be the center piece for the Star Wars spin-off films that George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy teased fans with during the post Disney/Lucas Film Ltd sale interview. And it looks like the rumor mill is predicting that character will be none other than Yoda! Still nothing official as of yet, but I think this news would not surprise many.

” The first Stand Alone film is going to center upon YODA. At this stage specifics are sparse, but Kathleen Kennedy is putting together a STAR WARS slate… I’m wildly curious for more details on the YODA film – would this be a young or old YODA tale?”.
