Obi-Wan Kenobi film reportedly has a plot and director confirmed

18 May, 2018, 05:59 | Author: Cecil Buchanan

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.

According to the website, the synopsis reads: "Obi-Wan is on Tatooine being an elusive hermit and stuff, but secretly watches over an infant Luke Skywalker, whom he delivered to his uncle, Owen".

According to TMZ, the long-rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi solo film is getting closer to becoming a reality. Thus far, an Obi-Wan standalone supposedly has a working title called "The Joshua Tree," a director for the film in Stephen Daldry, and George Lucas is rumored to be scouting out locations for filming.

Daldry, who is best known for films like Billy Elliot and The Hours, first came up as the director a year ago when news arose of the film's existence.

Beastie Boys Book To Be Released October 30th
The initial announcement was made earlier this year, with it reportedly having been in the works since 2013 with original plans for a 2015 release .


It's worth mentioning that this synopsis is incredibly similar to that of John Jackson Miller's 2013 novel, Kenobi. Plus, the most recent actor to play the Jedi master, Ewan McGregor, has repeatedly said that he's interested in reprising the role (which was originated by the late Sir Alec Guinness in Episodes IV-VI).

More specifically, TMZ's shared what the plot could be about as well. During The Force Awakens, TMZ released accurate photo leaks from the set of the film.

Even though nothing is officially confirmed in regards to Ewan McGreggors involvement, Lucasfilm undoubtedly knows that it's Ewan or bust - or they would have an even angrier mob and riot on their hands than they do now. Take it with a grain of salt for now and hopefully we'll have the official details soon.

What makes this rumor a little hard to swallow, though, is that publicly, Lucasfilm has declared that it wants to continue focusing on Han, with the next "Star Wars Story" film likely following in "Solo"'s footsteps, and highlighting Han's relationship with Chewie. However, a war between farmers and Sand People brings Kenobi out of hiding, defending the baby.
