Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars Spin-Off Film Actually in Development

Ever since Lucasfilm and Disney announced that they would be doing spinoff movies set in the Star Wars universe, fans have been clamoring for an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie. I mean, Ewan McGregor keeps telling people he’s game for it — and he’s the one thing every Star Wars fan seems to agree was actually good about the Prequel trilogy. But while rumors flew a bunch back in, like, twenty-fourteen the idea didn’t seem to be going anywhere.

Well, that’s no longer the case.

THR is reporting that an Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff is definitely in the works now. There’s no script yet, but director Stephen Daldry is currently in talks with the studio to take on the project. Curiously McGregor hasn’t signed on to the film yet, but it’s almost a guarantee that the fans would revolt if he didn’t play the part.

All of this is early on, and we still don’t have a formal announcement from the studio. But while this could all still fall apart, it’s good to know that the studio is listening to what the fans have been clamoring for.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
