Possible Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars Film Details Emerge

OG The role was originally portrayed by Alec Guinness. Seen here in the 1977 film

Previous year there were reports that a standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi movie could be happening, and now according to a report from TMZ (via IGN), it seems that those rumors are true and that the movie is indeed going to proceed with Stephen Daldry who is expected to helm the movie and with production reportedly taking place next spring.

If Solo: A Star Wars Story is the Star Wars film that "no one" wanted, an Obi-Wan Kenobi film is one that "everyone" wants.

"Tensions between the local farmers and a tribe of Sand People - headed by a ruthless war chief - eventually brings Obi outta hiding. and into Jedi kick-ass mode", the document explains, according to TMZ.

Kasdan, the revered writer of The Empire Strike Back and The Return of the Jedi, did not. With Solo coming out on Friday, May 25, there have been plenty rumors about the future of the franchise, and one of the early rumors may have some steam behind it: an Obi-Wan solo movie.

France have been drawn in Group C at the World Cup , meaning they will face Australia, Peru and Denmark. Martial is also on the standby list along with Mamadou Sakho , Moussa Sissoko and Kurt Zouma .

The Hollywood Reporteroriginally reported that the next anthology film would, in fact, be an Obi-Wan tale, joining a list of other potential projects Lucasfilm is considering, including ones focusing on Yoda and Boba Fett. The time that this film takes place potentially lets audiences see Kenobi reflecting on his former pupil and friend Anakin Skywalker betraying him and destroying the Jedi Order and how that still effects him.

Ewan McGregor, who has played the character previously, is on record saying he would be "happy" to reprise the role but there has been no announcement about casting. However, we imagine that this would open up to a plot with a much bigger scope.

Their reporting suggests the title for the film will be Obi-Wan: A Star Wars Story with a production title of "Joshua Tree", a clear reference to the desert planet Tatooine. However, there is still plenty of Star Wars action just on the horizon.

Before we go any further, we need to know if we can trust these reports from TMZ.
