Standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi Movie Is Reportedly Happening

OG The role was originally portrayed by Alec Guinness. Seen here in the 1977 film

The upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi "Star Wars" spin-off will be a direct prequel to "Episode IV - A New Hope".

As someone who has been lukewarm over numerous film ideas that Lucasfilm have been kicking around, the idea of an Obi-Wan movie has been one that I've have been excited for and it would be worthy entry into the Star Wars franchise.

There have been fans who want Ewan McGregor to reprise the role in a future film, and he's said he's been open to it. Obi-Wan will allegedly begin with Kenobi living as a hermit on Tatooine, as he secretly watches over the young Luke Skywalker.

Stephen Daldry is listed as a director. However, he'll have to come out of the shadows when tensions rise "between the local farmers and a tribe of Sand People - headed by a ruthless war chief".

Nikki Bella SLAMS rumours that her breakup with John Cena is fake
Their differing stances on marriage and kids were major plot points on Total Bellas and its spinoff, Total Divas . She does things that are so Bryan and then she will do things that are so me.

However, without official confirmation from Lucasfilm and the Star Wars powers to be, these Obi-Wan Kenobi talks may be just jibberish.

The one crucial piece of the puzzle that has yet to be confirmed is if Ewan McGregor will return to play Kenobi. Beyond those, we also know thatThe Last Jedidirector Rian Johnson is working on his own trilogy of films, as are Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Are they reliable? Even though TMZ is known at times for being sleazy and they operate much like the paparazzi, their sources are nearly always spot on.

What should we make of these rumblings? "Scene." This is starting to look good folks but as always, take it with a grain of salt. This seems to be a much more nuanced and grounded concept than the usually planet-hopping adventure of the rest of the franchise, yet could be very true to the original roots of the series, particularly the lone shogun and samurai influences of Kurosawa films.

Last year, Disney CEO Bob Iger positively announced that a third standalone Star Wars film would roll out in 2020. What in the world are you all waiting for, Lucasfilm?
