That Long Rumored OBI-WAN KENOBI Movie Could Start Shooting Sooner Than We Expected

That Long Rumored OBI-WAN KENOBI Movie Could Start Shooting Sooner Than We Expected

With Solo: A Star Wars Story a couple of weeks away from being released, rumours have started swirling about the next Anthology movie from Lucasfilm and the signs are once again pointing to Obi-Wan Kenobi.

According to a new report, Lucasfilm has started working on Obi-Wan Kenobi's long-rumoured spinoff movie with work starting on concept art, props and storyboards (which is a little odd considering the fact a director hasn't been attached but the studio could be talking to any number of filmmakers). 

The plan apparently is for filming to take place in London's Pinewood Studios after work on Episode IX wraps up later this year. Shooting wouldn't actually start until April 2019 but Obi-Wan would "move onto stages" in January. The lines up with a previous report and it's worth noting that it Billy Elliot helmer Stephen Daldry was in talks to direct last August, so he may have now signed on to the movie.

However, we should point out that Lucasfilm still hasn't officially announced the movie unlike the new movies from Rian Johnson and David Benioff & D.B. Weiss. It's also hard to imagine Obi-Wan meeting that rumoured December 2020 release date, especially as the fifth Indiana Jones film is coming out that year and Avatar 2 and Sherlock Holmes 3 will already be doing battle at the box office that month. 


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