Film and television production company Lucasfilm is officially developing a Star Wars spinoff about Obi-Wan Kenobi.
In early 2013, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced plans for Star Wars spinoff movies that eventually became last year’s Rogue One and next year’s Han Solo. In the years since, there have also been rumours about other spinoffs for characters like Boba Fett, Yoda, and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Well good news! The Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff has now been confirmed! Academy Award nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours, and the upcoming Wicked movie) is in talks for the job.
No other details are currently known, but Ewan McGregor is reportedly the safest and likeliest option to play the character.
“I’d very much like to do one too,” McGregor said.
