The website TMZ is reporting that the next standalone Star Wars film will indeed be based on the tales of Obi-Wan Kenobi and his time spent on Tatooine, according to a production bulletin released by the studio. Plus, the most recent actor to play the Jedi master, Ewan McGregor, has repeatedly said that he's interested in reprising the role (which was originated by the late Sir Alec Guinness in Episodes IV-VI). Given the reported setting of the upcoming Obi-Wan standalone film, it wouldn't be far off to assume McGregor would return to the role. Obi-Wan is on Tatooine being an elusive hermit and stuff, but secretly watches over an infant Luke Skywalker, whom he delivered to his uncle, Owen.
However, without official confirmation from Lucasfilm and the Star Wars powers to be, these Obi-Wan Kenobi talks may be just jibberish.
Sounds like everything an Obi-Wan movie should be...as long as Ewan McGregor is the one playing him.
According to a report by TMZ, Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Crown) will potentially helm the rumored project.Previous rumors also indicatedDaldry will be collaborating with Lucasfilm to oversee both writing and development.
The synopsis is one out of the Star Wars Legends vault, sounding very much like the Kenobi novel by John Jackson Miller - which is fantastic.
