Ready are you? What know you of ready?

According to Harry Knowles at Ain't It Cool News, the first stand alone movie within the "Star Wars" universe could focus on Yoda. From Knowles report:

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?

Kennedy, who was instrumental in getting J.J. Abrams to direct "Star Wars: Episode VII," took over as Lucasfilm head when George Lucas sold his billion dollar production company to Disney last October. The plan was to not only continue the "Star Wars" franchise with episodes "VII," "VIII" and "IX," but also expand the universe. That means single-focus films that live within the world, not unlike what Marvel has done with "Thor," "Captain America" and the upcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy." As Disney chairman and CEO Robert Iger said, the hope is to release a "Star Wars" film every "two or three years."

This isn't the first "Star Wars" spin-off rumor to pop up here in 2013. Back in January, Vulture reported that Zack Snyder would direct a "Star Wars" film that was a play on "Seven Samurai." Snyder's representatives quickly shot that report down, but Vulture reporter Claude Brodesser-Akner stood by his story. "This reporter heard through a source very familiar with the situation that Snyder recently flew up to Marin County to meet with Lucasfilm execs about the project."

Expect more of these to pop up in the next few years. "Star Wars: Episode VII" is the only "Star Wars" film loaded for bear; with Abrams at the helm, it's expected to arrive in theaters in 2015. (Probably.)
