Obi-Wan Kenobi Film in the Works

Posted August 17, 2017 by Eoin Friel in News

It’s been rumored for months that the next Star Wars standalone film would feature Obi-Wan Kenobi and today THR has confirmed that it is on the cards with Stephen Daldry is in early talks for the film.

“Sources say talks are at the earliest of stages and that the project has no script. If a deal makes, Daldry would oversee the development and writing with Lucasfilm brass.

The Obi-Wan Kenobi stand-alone is one of several projects being developed by Lucasfilm and Disney that fall outside the trilogies telling the saga of the Skywalker family. A Han Solo movie is now in the final stages of shooting under new director Ron Howard, and Lucasfilm is also considering movies centering on Yoda and bounty hunter Boba Fett, among other characters.

Ewan McGregor, who played the younger Kenobi in the prequels, has said he would be open to playing the character again. Sources stress, however, that since there is no script, no actor is attached.”

So I guess we’ll wait and see what happens…
