A Star Wars spinoff starring Obi-Wan Kenobi is in the works as with Stephen Daldry at the helm of the project
Star Wars has rocked audience for over four decades now but the movie has hardly lost any steam. The franchise has a huge fan base and even to this day captivates the interest of the audience. If you’re a Star Wars fan then you’re in the right age. The franchise is now releasing spinoffs of its characters. According to the Hollywood Reporter a standalone film of Obi-Wan Kenobi might be part of the Star Wars universe.
As mentioned above, the Star Wars franchise has gained significant popularity. The new Obi- Wan Kenobi film has captured the interest of the Oscar nominated film maker Stephen Dadlry who is in talks to direct the new film. If the negotiation works out Daldry would work with Lucas Film to develop the new movie.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the movie is still in its early stages of development and is without a script. It is also unclear as to what part of Kenobi’s life would be covered. We however expect it to be an origin story. The character was played by Alec Guinness in the 1977 Star Wars film and by Ewan McGregor in the later sequels. While its too early to comment on the actor who will assume the rule of Kenobi there are reports that McGregor has expressed interest.
The new idea of developing stand alone movies is quite a brilliant one. Fans get the chance to explore the origin stories of their favorite characters while the movie directors and producers also do good business. Rogue One is an example which made over $1 billion globally. The Kenobi standalone film is one of many films that are being developed by Lucas Films and Disney who are looking to tell the tale of the entire Skywalker family.
