Stop. Everything. Have you heard the news about there being a standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi film? Is this really going to happen? The answer is a good, solid maybe!
If you believe the rumors, Lucasfilm is trying to lure Oscar-nominated filmmaker Stephen Daldry to the project while it is in its very, very early stages. to helm a standalone film focusing on Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Presumably, the plot would take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope but the actual storyline as well as the casting is anyone’s guess. It would be pretty badass, though, if Ewan McGregor returned to the role and (he has indicated that’s he’d do it again and even said, “I’d be happy to do the story from Episode III [Revenge of the Sith], where I finish up, and Alec Guinness starts”).
Okay, so let’s get this thing going!! Let’s hope that the next time we hear about this, there’s real confirmation and some casting news. That would be so amazing for Star Wars fans. It can be Christmas in August, right? Please!!!
