    I think an Obi-Wan standalone film should be like this character-driven Western film set between Episodes III and IV, about his experiences on Tatooine while watching over Luke. We see Obi-Wan communing with Qui-Gon's disembodied voice learning to be a Force ghost, as well as dealing with his personal demons. It should be like Logan, Samurai Jack Season 5, and The Dark Knight Returns. What do these works have in common?They're all post-apocalyptic stories about an older, more jaded version of a beloved character who is forced out of retirement or some type of exile. It's not like they hadn't done it before. There was that Legends Obi-Wan novel from five years ago which was a Western story and TLJ recently did this with Luke Skywalker, so why not Obi-Wan. It should be called Ben:A Star Wars Story similar to Logan. In fact, it could be the Logan of Star Wars. So what do you guys think?

    Oh, very much agreed! This film can really be something special, and challenge the notions of what a Star Wars film can be, similar to what Logan accomplished. I know a lot of folks feel that it'd be "boring" just having Kenobi on Tatooine the entire film, but I think there's a lot of awesome stuff that you can do with that setup. An older, "crazy" Kenobi, in a western-inspired film. The Kenobi book from the old timeline is just one example of how such an approach could work. McGregor is an actor that can pull this off, and he is a big must to have for this project.

    True enough, its just sad to think that we will never hear another piece of his music after 2020 (Indy 5 comes out that year and I expect that might be his farewell to work)

    Seems like the rumors about the film are spinning again... Now there are several articles (mostly gossip I think) about potential Kenobi movie shooting in Belfast in 2019.

    When I read that they are shooting in Belfast, the first thing I thought was, 'if true, this would confirm that they would be taking Obi-Wan off of Tatooine for part of the movie'. But then I read where it would be Shot at Paint Hall Studios. So not Belfast, for Location Shooting then. :p

    Interesting that this is where they are Shooting Game of Thrones. Hmmm... Are Benioff & Weiss involved with the Kenobi movie, like I was speculating. [face_thinking] I wish Disney would just come out and anounce this movie already. [face_waiting]

    Fascinating that they're speculating Lucas might return to direct. I doubt it will happen, but who knows. Maybe Lucas got the directing itch again visiting the sets of Rogue One and Solo.

    Personally, I would welcome any involvement from Lucas in these new Star Wars movies. They could use Lucas's touch; even if it is just to help out with Story/Visual ideas.

    I agree though I doubt he would actually want to direct a whole film. Maybe a scene or two. And not like Disney would let him lol.

    No disrespect to the man...but at least he could be kept in check since he doesn't own the SW universe anymore! [face_peace] Get out into the real world GL - It's a wonderful place! Films should not be made on a cpu

    Mark me down as "interested" :cool:

    A low key film set in desert like ANH would be right up his alley.

    I think when he said he was done directing Hollywood movies he meant it. He could come on to help, but I doubt it would be more then that.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Lucas got the itch to direct again, I could also see him working with a co-director instead of mounting an entire movie by himself at this point.

    Lucas is not going to direct a film for Disney. There's a better chance of aliens landing on the White House lawn to take Trump back to his homeworld than there is of Lucas ever directing another Star Wars film.

    I just watched a video on this by Mundane Matt aka 3 Buck Theater. Belfast is an interesting location. Maybe Obi-Wan can have an Irish accent. That would be hilarious.

    Still crossing my fingers for this one. Between the Rian's new trilogy and the GOT guy's new series of films it doesn't look like there will be much room for Star Wars Stories for several years (unless they move to 2 films per year) so 2020 seems like the last realistic release date for Kenobi at the moment.

    Hmm, I really wonder what the "spinoff statistics" would show if fans were to vote for which character spinoff movie they'd like to see first. I may be biased but I believe a "Kenobi spinoff" is the one that has got most attention in media throughout the last years. So why don't they just decide to make it?;)

    Yup, that was a rhetoric question, but feel free to agree.:p

    They can do quite a few spin offs to be quite honest, personally I hope for Kenobi, I'm in dreamland though when I say could we really get a Palpy spin off, or other characters maybe from the Jedi Order etc. I always wanted to see a live action RC movie.

    If this thing is actually happening, I imagine it will be officially announced and dated at some point this summer. It's possible that the green light on production hinges on the release and reception to Solo.

    Mhm, I doubt that. They aren't going to base the decision to make a movie on the reception of a completely different project.

    If Disney cared about what the fans wanted films to be about we would not have Solo. :p

    Solo "has" the potential to be decent and interesting but yeah Disney should ask the fans what they feel would do well as a standalone.
