STAR WARS: That OBI-WAN KENOBI Movie May End Up Debuting On Disney's New Streaming Service

Work may have stalled on Lucasfilm's planned standalone movie for Obi-Wan Kenobi but a new report points to it now debuting on Disney's streaming service rather than in theaters. Hit the jump for details!

We've been hearing an awful lot about Lucasfilm's plans for future Star Wars movies with the consensus being that the studio is now reevaluating its plans for spinoffs revolving around characters like Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi. In the case of the latter, it sounds like the Jedi Master will be making his presence felt on Disney's planned streaming service, something they hope will rival Netflix. 

Apparently, Stephen Daldry exited the movie around six months ago, meaning that Solo: A Star Wars Story isn't to blame for the spinoff's production woes. With Disney's streaming service planned for a Fall 2019 debut, it's said that Obi-Wan Kenobi could debut there as a means of generating interest when it launches; after all, you have to believe that moviegoers would subscribe to check that out. 


While an argument could be made that Obi-Wan Kenobi should be shown on the big screen, the line between movie theaters and home entertainment is blurring, hence why the likes of Bright and Gerald’s Game debut on Netflix. Warner Bros. is taking a similar approach to this by putting shows like Titans and Doom Patrol on DC Universe rather than TV so this obviously makes a lot of sense.
