Obi-Wan Kenobi

For a long time, Star Wars fans have hoped that Ewan McGregor would reprise the role of Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi in a spinoff film. While the spinoff rumors were met with mixed results, there was an increased amount of optimism when it was announced that Disney would be launching Disney+, the studio’s exclusive streaming service. With The Mandalorian and the untitled Cassian Andor series already confirmed, there seemed to be more than enough room for other Star Wars titles to exist on the streaming platform.

Now it has been confirmed that there will be an Obi-Wan series, and that it will see McGregor return to the role that he played in the prequels. More on the reports below.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Disney will have no trouble finding any TV series for their new streaming service Disney+. Along with Disney, Pixar, and Marvel titles, they also have access to Star Wars, which gives more people a reason to add yet another subscription to their bills. And with film production simmering down, there is the possibility that some titles that were being groomed for a theatrical release could be remodeled for a TV format.

Case in point, Obi-Wan Kenobi. A film centered around the character had been in development, and was rumored to be a part of the spinoffs that Disney and Lucasfilm would have released. However, in the wake of Solo: A Star Wars Story‘s under performance at the box office, it looks like the Jedi knight will find a new home. More on the report below.

Alden Ehrenreich is Han Solo and Joonas Suotamo is Chewbacca in SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.

Last week there was a report from Collider that said the Star Wars spinoffs were being put on hold. The news came after Solo: A Star Wars Story‘s reported inability to meet certain box office expectations. As a result, this put the multiple planned spinoffs on pause. But plans for The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson’s new trilogy and the series of movies from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were to continue to be developed.

However, it appears now that the spinoffs are back on, or merely they were never actually put on hold. A new report says Lucasfilm is still actively developing anthology films for the Star Wars universe. This includes films for Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett. More on the story here below.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

It’s only been a few days since we learned that Emperor Palpatine was rumored to return in Star Wars: Episode VII, and now we are hearing that another major character from the Star Wars universe is set to return, except this character doesn’t follow the dark side of the Force.

Latino Review has the scoop that Ewan McGregor will return to reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode VII. And like the rumored Emperor Palpatine, Obi-Wan will return as a Force ghost, something he has already done in Return of the Jedi. But his return may stir up some controversy within the Star Wars community.
