An Obi-Wan Kenobi 'Star Wars' Film Spin-Off Could Be On Its Way

An Obi-Wan Kenobi 'Star Wars' Film Spin-Off Could Be On Its Way

Please be so.

Talks are reportedly to be happening for a standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars film.

Sources have told The Hollywood Reporter that there is ambition for a project although no script or cast have been attached to it.

The only thing that is strongly believed to be close to the film is Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry supposedly being on board.

If he does sign on, then he would oversee the development and scripting of the film.

Daldry has won Tony, BAFTA and Laurence Olivier awards for his work in theatre both of Broadway and in London's West End.

The Star Wars spin-offs have become increasingly popular in recent years.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was released last year, and an untitled Han Solo film is due to be put on the silver screen in May 2018.

Lucasfilm, who sold the Star Wars franchise to Walt Disney Pictures, is also rumoured to be looking into Yoda and Boba Fett films, among other Star Wars entries.

Rogue One featured the story of a group of rebels who stole the Death Star plans and ended directly before Episode IV: A New Hope (the first ever Star Wars film).

The Han Solo film will focus on the title character again up to the events of Episode IV.

Last year, Ewan McGregor, who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in the prequel trilogy of Star Wars films, expressed an interest in playing the character againHe previously returned in a small voice cameo during Star Wars: The Force Awakens and has repeatedly discussed returning the series if given the option.

And many fans, of both the franchise and the actor, were keen to see the Scot return to the role...

The next Star Wars film to hit theatres will be Star Wars: The Last Jedi in December 2017.
