John Boyega has admitted he would love to see a Yoda origin 'Star Wars' movie and said there are "cool" stuff in the universe
John Boyega wants to see a Yoda origin story.
The 25-year-old actor made his first outing as Stormtrooper-turned-Resistance fighter Finn in 2015's 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and will reprise this role in 'The Last Jedi'.
Recently Disney and Lucasfilm have announced they are working with Rian Johnson - who helmed the eighth instalment of the hit sci-fi franchise - on a brand new trilogy separate from the current Skywalker saga and more spin-offs are planned.
Boyega believes there are some great "fan theories" that could be used as story ideas for the big screen.
Speaking to Collider, Boyega said: "I think they need to go back to the Old Republic, how they do in the games, and discover what's going on there.
"There's some cool stuff in the 'Star Wars' universe they can use, there's cool fan theories they can use that could be part of the movies too, I mean, why not? Personally, I want to see a Yoda origin story."
Yoda is the fan favourite, tiny green Jedi Master who appeared in two of the three original trilogy films and all the prequels.
The character died during 'Episode VI: Return of the Jedi' but was seen as a Jedi-Force ghost alongside Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker at the end of the film.
Yoda has also appeared in the animated TV spin-off series 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars'.
The 'Star Wars' universe has already been expanded away from the main movies with 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' and the upcoming Han Solo spin-off.
Also there are reports circulating of an Obi-Wan Kenobi film in the works and Boyega admitted he would love to see that film made.
He said: "I'm there. I want to know what he was like, I want to know where he originated from in terms of him being a character being young."
