It’s finally happening! The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Disney and Lucasfilm are officially developing a Star Wars spin-off movie for Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Kenobi, who has been portrayed by both Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor, is one of the most popular characters in the Star Wars universe and after years of fan requests, it seems like Lucasfilm is finally ready to make the spin-off film.
According to the report, Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) is in talks to helm the project, although THR also states that no script has been written and the project is in the earliest of stages. It is currently unknown if Ewan McGregor will return to play Obi-Wan, but I’d bet my hard earned money that we’ll see McGregor return to the galaxy far, far away.
