We know that at least two Star Wars spin-offs are on the way (Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank are attached to two), so it's inevitable that the rumour mill is going overboard on which characters they will focus on. A name which continuously seems to pop up though is Obi-Wan Kenobi. According to Cinelinx - a site unproven in terms of scoops, but one which doesn't have a bad track record or poor reputation as far as we know - Lucasfilm and Disney are developing THREE standalone movies! "First up, they are not talking about an Obi-Wan spin-off movie but a trilogy of Obi-Wan movies," their source claims. "I need to stress that these movies are not connected. They aren't part of a story arc but 3 separate Obi-Wan adventures set between Episodes III and IV."
We're at that point where there are so many Star Wars rumours doing the rounds, you can just about guarantee that 99% are fake, but Obi-Wan has been mention by a variety of sites now. As for three standalone movies, I'd say it's far more likely that they're simply mulling over three different ideas and will pick on, but here's what they have so far: "One set completely on Tatooine and two where Obi-Wan travels elsewhere in the Galaxy. Qui-Gon Jinn is very much present in these stories. So too is Owen Lars. Several characters from the Clone Wars T.V show would make an appearance. There would be flashbacks to Obi-Wan fighting in the Clone Wars." You would think that Lucasfilm would want to avoid the prequels, but if quality stories can be told which are set during that time period, what's the harm in returning? What do you guys think?
