Is a Star Wars Obi-Wan Film Heading into Development?


The Star Wars franchise has entertained audiences for 40 years.  With two more upcoming sequels and a Han Solo spin off it isn’t going to stop anytime soon. Now it’s going to go on longer with a new Obi-Wan Kenobi movie in early development. When we say “early” we mean “early.” There is no script or even a writer working on a script yet.
So far all that has been done is Disney has initiated talks with Billy Elliot director Steven Daldry to potentially direct the new Star Wars film.

According to Variety sources say the talks are happening, but nothing has been formally decided on for an Obi-Wan film, but we know that Disney has a few stand alone Star Wars movies in various stages of development.  After the success of Rogue One and the excitement over the upcoming Han Solo film, more stand alone films make a lot of sense.  An Obi-Wan movie would be a fantastic way to explain how he hid from the Empire for all those years.  Besides Han Solo and the possibility of an Obi-Wan movie, there are two other character stories in development currently including a  Jabba the Hutt film and a Boba Fett film.

Personally, I would love to see more Star Wars films.  Rogue One was fantastic and I look forward to seeing what they can do with the characters.
