Obi-Wan Kenobi Rumored To Get Spin-Off
by Rob Goldman
Over a year ago Disney announced that they were planning to release a new Star Wars film every year starting with the upcoming J.J. Abrams film Episode VII. The plan is to release a stand alone film in between the main storyline of the Star Wars universe.
Rumors have been flying around since day 1 about which characters would see some love. The obvious choices were focusing on a young Han Solo or Boba Fett, but the latest rumors are pointing their fingers at Obi-Wan Kenobi.
A source of the website MakingStarWars.net had this to say, “Obi-Wan Kenobi – I’ve heard from quite a few people now that an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is in the works. For the spin-off movies they were initially going to stay away from any Jedi or Sith characters. But I’m hearing now that because of the popularity of Obi-Wan (fans recently voting for him on the official website etc) that an art team is now working with a writer on concepts for an Obi-Wan movie.”
I’d definitely prefer an Obi-Wan film over a young Han Solo film, but something about a Boba Fett film just gives me goosebumps. I’m sure all three of these characters will have their own solo films plus 15 sequels that will follow it up. So the question really isn’t which character will we get to see, but more like, which character will we get to see first.
What do you think of an Obi-Wan Kenobi film? When do you think it should take place?
