Untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi

Post by Master Magnus » August 19th, 2017, 12:58 pm

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Stephen Daldry is in talks to direct an as-of-yet untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi stand-alone movie. It's rumored to be an origin story, dealing with Obi-Wan's life before joining the Jedi Order. While nothing has been officially announced yet, and it might take some time, it does seem pretty solid.

It's funny how some media outlets are stating it's official when it isn't yet. The media are speculating about what it will be about. The Hollywood Reporter article mentions there is no script so what the story is about is still open.

I question the origins theory as we already see Obi Wan as a padawan in TPM. It was established that he trained with Qui Gon for 10 years. How much of a story could be from making Obi-Wan being younger is questionable.

With the Rebels series showing that Obi Wan did leave Tatooine between Ep 3 & 4, would give greater credence to a movie in this time period. Also Ewan has always expressed a desire to return to playing the character. Many female fans do like staring at him so another reason for Disney to milk this idea.
Remember, the Force will be with you always.
