Obi-Wan: the movie??

Recommended Posts

So I think we all know that Ewan McGregor has gone on the record a few times that he would love to play Obi-Wan again.

After all, the third anthology film subject is still a mystery.

 

However, there has been no word from Disney on whether they agree.

And recently, there has been a rumor floating around as to just why:

It is rumor, so take it with what you will. But it begs an interesting discussion...

I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually did an Obi-Wan movie, he's an immensely popular character and they have an actor ready and willing to reprise the role.

I guess it all comes down to whether or not they can come up with a decent story.

True enough.

I would love to see Ewan as Obi-Wan again.  And even though he'd be stuck on Tatooine (assumably) I think there are plenty of adventures to be had.  Like in the old legends/EU Obi-Wan novel or in the new Marvel Star Wars comic as well, there was a scene of him helping out Luke as a boy.

It's a go! :D

Per the Hollywood Report via Joblo.com

The long-rumored Obi-Wan movie is officially in development at Disney. Though this early, there is no script, and consequently, no cast.

But I think they would be stupid not to get Ewan back. Unless for some reason he's not a fit (like if they go pre-prequel Obi-Wan when he's still a young padawan). I for one would prefer something between III and IV.

 

What do you guys think?  What storyline/era do you want to see? Which actor?

Is there actually an official confirmation of it? I can only find things that say "sources say" and the like.

Just what the HR is reporting, far as I can tell.

A fan on Reddit recently made his own Obi-Wan movie poster... Whether the film is confirmed or not, it's pretty awesome to think about it!

That looks pretty cool actually.

 

And on a side note I think that's the first Reddit post that has been embedded on GB, didn't know what it would look like. :p

So there is another rumor swirling around (supposedly attributed to some kind of source), that the Obi-Wan spinoff, Obi-Wan: A Star Wars Story, will take place pre-ANH...  basically in the time period when he's on Tatooine watching over Luke.

But I think we all figured this is what would make the most sense anyway, if this turns out to be confirmed as one of the next spinoff films.

I'd like Obi-Wan and Boba Fett to be in the same story, but that might just be me.
