SPOILERS: The Surprising Reason Obi-Wan Hasn't Had His Own STAR WARS Spinoff Revealed?

<font color=red>SPOILERS:</font> The Surprising Reason Obi-Wan Hasn't Had His Own STAR WARS Spinoff Revealed?

The reason that Obi-Wan Kenobi movie hasn't happened (yet) has seemingly been revealed, and it may have major ramifications for the current trilogy which kicked off with The Force Awakens...

The demand for movies revolving around Han Solo and Boba Fett pales in comparison to how much Star Wars fans want to see Ewan McGregor star in his own Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff. Why it hasn't already been announced is baffling, but it sounds like there may be a very good reason for that. However, before you go any further, be warned that possible spoilers for the current trilogy do follow!

During a recent podcast appearance, Entertainment Weekly reporter Anthony Breznican was asked about a solo outing for Obi-Wan, and his response was very interesting indeed. "I have heard rumors that the one reason they haven’t moved sooner on Obi-Wan is that they’re not done with Obi-Wan quite yet in the Saga films. So I wouldn’t be surprised to see an Obi-Wan thing happen beyond Episode IX." He doesn't elaborate on that beyond some speculation, but it's food for thought!

While Obi-Wan obviously won't be resurrected in the new trilogy, some sort of big reveal in regards to the hero would obviously make for a much more interesting movie if it were to then be elaborated on in an Anthology release. Does this kinda, sorta confirm theories he's related to Rey or Finn are correct? 

We'll have to wait and see, but for now, be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
