OBI-WAN KENOBI Movie: Rumored Plot Details Have Emerged For The Planned STAR WARS Spinoff

If a new rumor is to be believed, Disney and Lucasfilm have begun to make progress on the planned Obi-Wan Kenobi movie, and a director may have been locked in for the project. Find out more after the jump.

It looks like we might have some idea of what to expect from the plot of the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie that's currently in the works.

The guys over at TMZ reckon they've come across some story details via the latest issue of Production Weekly, and, if accurate, it looks like the film will follow the exiled Jedi on Tatooine after the events of Revenge of the Sith, and leading directly into A New Hope.


“Obi-Wan is on Tatooine being an elusive hermit and stuff, but secretly watches over an infant Luke Skywalker, whom he delivered to his uncle, Owen. Tensions between the local farmers and a tribe of Sand People — headed by a ruthless war chief — eventually brings Obi outta hiding … and into Jedi kickass mode. Scene.”

The time-frame is not exactly surprising - after all, we can hardly catch up with the character after A New Hope - but that stuff about the Tusken Raiders sounds like it could be interesting. That said, this does sound more like the premise of a short film than a fully fleshed-out big-screen adventure.

The report also claims to have confirmed that Stephen Daldry (The Hours, Billy Elliot, The Reader) has signed on to direct the project, which is currently using "Joshua Tree" as its working title.

We'll obviously have to treat this as a rumor for now, but if this did wind up being the general gist of the story, what would you guys think? Sound off below.
