Now that the Extended Universe has been nuked, rumblings online seem to be pointing to an Obi-Wan trilogy.
Schmoesknow.com are reporting a rumor that Disney is in negotiations with Ewan McGregor on an unknown project, but Schmoesknow claim a source says that it’s for McGregor to return as Obi-Wan Kenobi. The same source is also reported to have said that Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan will “not to be a force ghost, but for a post-Episode III Kenobi.”
This isn’t the only source of this rumour, however, as Cinelinx.com claim to have a source saying an Obi-Wan trilogy is in the works. This adds to the post-Episode III rumour from Schmoesknow as Cinelinx’s source reportedly said:
“First up, they are not talking about an Obi-Wan spin-off movie but a trilogy of Obi-Wan movies. I need to stress that these movies are not connected. They aren’t part of a story arc but 3 separate Obi-Wan adventures set between Episodes III and IV.”
“It seems like the 3 movie ideas are as follows:
One set completely on Tatooine and two where Obi-Wan travels elsewhere in the Galaxy.
Qui-Gon Jinn is very much present in these stories. So too is Owen Lars. Several characters from the Clone Wars T.V show would make an appearance. There would be flashbacks to Obi-Wan fighting in the Clone Wars.”
Whilst this is still unconfirmed and definitely still in the rumour territory, with two different sites claiming a source that seems to have slightly different information, this one seems worth keeping an eye out for in the future.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives in theaters on December the 18th this year and next year will see the release of the first Anthology film, Star Wars: Rogue One.
