A Spin-off Obi Wan Kenobi Film Is in the Works

The internet is abuzz with news that we may be getting a standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi film. Everything is in the early stages of planning so we don’t have an actor attached nor a script but we do know that Oscar nominated director, Stephen Daldry (Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close) is in negotiations to direct and write along with Lucasfilms & Disney. Daldry also has been directing several episodes of The Crown on Netflix.

If the force is strong, Kenobi, who has been played previously by Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor, will get the honor of joining other beloved Star Wars characters that are in various stages of talk & production to having their own stand alone films. These include Yoda, Boba Fett and my own personal fav, Han Solo (slated for may 2018). All of which. We don’t know when in Kenobi’s life this film would take place so there we have no idea if this will be a prequel to the prequels or a prequel to A New Hope, but all I have to say is “Give us Ewan McGregor or we riot!!” Especially since McGregor has expressed keen interest. Could Daldry be our only hope? Only time will tell.
