There Is Reportedly An Obi-Wan Kenobi Movie In The Works And I Couldn't Be More Excited

This could be the movie that will bring balance to the prequels!

Posted on

So the last two years have been amazing for Star Wars fans (and movie fans in general) thanks to the release of The Force Awakens and the very first stand-alone spin-off film, Rogue One.

The two films have reenergized the franchise and helped us move past the prequels.

And while the next stand-alone film, which revolves around Han Solo, is set to be released in May of 2018, Disney and Lucasfilm have been mum about which film would follow.

Well, according to The Hollywood Reporter, its possible that there might be an Obi-Wan Kebobi film in the works.

Which, if it actually pans out, is great news! I think we can all agree that Obi-Wan (as played by Ewan McGregor) was maybe the best thing to come out of the prequels.

Best of all, Ewan has expressed interest in returning to the role! Last year he told the French magazine Premiere that he thought there was more story to tell about the iconic character, saying:

I’ve always thought there was a story to tell between my last one and Alec Guinness’ first one...It would be fun to film that story now I’m older. I’d be the right age. I’m forty-five, Alec Guinness was what, sixty? I could do two of them (laughs)!

It's important to note that neither Disney or Lucasfilm has confirmed this, and that there isn't a script yet. Also, Ewan is not currently signed on for any more Star Wars films. But, this news gives us hope that we might get the prequel movie we’ve been waiting for since 1999!

    Nope. Tell another tale, I don't need to see the same characters over and over.
