    While I'm all for an Obi-Wan spin off *I still want to see a Darth Vader (in his masked and epic glory) vs ObiWan/Ewan fight* , I don't want him to have more than a cameo in the sequel trilogy. One of my worries for the sequel trilogy is that fans *and the film makers* might focus more on the old cast that they will forget that the movie is about the new cast.

    I'd love to see him lead a big war against the Tusken Raiders, protecting the lars homestead. Krayt dragons. Jawa Biker Gang. Love interest with that hottie. Etc,.

    Darth Claire:

    Depends on the story, I think. They *might* do the continuing adventures of Luke Skywalker with guidance from his ghost dad.

    I don't think they will, though.

    I guess but if it was a direct continuation of the Luke Skywalker story, I'd imagine they'd probably have to recast the originals *and we all know what would happen here if that happened. Pure anarchy [face_devil]*. I dont think Lucasfilm will want to take that risk so it will probably be about Luke's kid.

    Eh, that storyline sounds kind of weak. As Yoda put it (something to the effect of) them going into hiding on Tatooine (just knowing the locals could have given him info on pilots in Mos Eisley); Obi Wan going out in major adventures during that time=mediocre fit with the OT/PT storyline IMO.

    That time period in general could be good, and he could have a small part or cameos in something like the Underworld thing, but I wouldn't be in favor of a movie about Obi-Wan during that time period. Again, I am not violently opposed to it, and it might be better than some other ideas I have heard, but I want a SW story that doesn't focus on old characters, bring in something innovative, creative, and new; we already have the ST with familiar characters (probably).

    There are some great ideas here which could make a good movie. Post ROTS would be cool. Mind you, if they have a movie with Ewan playing Obi-Wan, I'd watch it even if it was just 2 hours of him meditating!

    McGregor is really the only PT actor who I wouldn't mind seeing again, but I don't want to see him baby sitting Luke on Tattoine. Obi-Wan could still go on adventures off-world though, since Luke is being raised by the Lars'.

    He should come back, but this time have him play Luke just to blow everyone's minds.

    I'm sure the Obi fangirls would love it, which means I should OPPOSE it. xD

    I'm trying to keep quiet about this whole spin off idea. I'm trying. I really am. I just don't know.

    Yeah, I do agree that tossing in Fett, while a cool idea, might be a bit of a stretch, which is why you can have Obi-Wan up to some crazy mission, rescue mission, something, save toddler Luke from planetbound gangsters or slavers or something, and have him not leave Tatooine at all. Some character stuff with Owen so we can get some dramatic back and forth with McGreggor and Edgerton. Like I said "True Grit. With a lightsaber." Everyone who sees him use it ends up dead anyway. Aside from maybe one guy. And nobody believes him.

    Does no one think that by taking a side story to Luke Skywalker's location it becomes part of the skywalker saga and not a spin off?

    Yeah, but technically it's not central to the main saga hence qualifies as a spinoff. I don't think the 7 Jedi story involves any of DC's scenario but it doesn't mean its not a cool idea.

    oh yeah, all sound ideas, I'm just not particularly loving the central setting being the Lars Homestead.

    You could then technically watch the end of RotS (at the Lars Homestead), this new Obi "spin-off" (at the Lars Homestead), then watch ANH which after the space battle is based where? (You guessed it!)

    To me, it would seem too much of a continuation as opposed to spin off
