Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi was for me the highlight of the prequels (along with John Williams’s amazing score). One of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars universe, many fans would love for the character to receive his own anthology film. While no official word has been handed down by the House of Mouse, various rumors have flew around the movie news world for months. McGregor recently spoke with Express while promoting his latest film, the Winnie the Pooh adaptation, Christopher Robin. What McGregor had to say isn’t exactly good news for those fans (myself included) who would like to see Obi-Wan film.
“I would totally do it, of course. There’s no plans as such to do it, as far as I know. There must be a good story to tell as they’re doing spin-offs – there’s likely to be a good Obi-Wan between me and Alec Guinness.”
Bummer. Some official word from Disney one way or the other would be nice. As far as we know, a Boba Fett film is still being developed with James Mangold set to bring us a one off story about the famed bounty hunter. After Solo under-performed at the box office rumors surfaced that Disney would cease all anthology films, they later refute those rumors, though it does seem as if Disney is rethinking their plans for the Star Wars universe.
Should Disney move forward with the Obi-Wan film? Let us know in the comments down below!
