    The good folks over at Cosmic Book News have brought us another Star Wars movie rumor, this time regarding a possible spinoff film.
    Our source notes that the Lucasfilm friend who provided the information said the idea is being tossed around.

    * Set between Star Wars Episode III and Episode IV.

    * Said to feature Ewan McGregor reprising the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi in his exile on Tatooine.

    * The villain? Darth Maul hunting down his nemesis with a possible plot point involving a 5-year-old Luke Skywalker somehow tied into the story possibly as bait for Obi-Wan.

    Cosmic Book News' last rumor was about Episode VII starring a disciple of Palpatine. When I covered this story for Suvudu, I wrote that "it sounds like someone at Cosmic Book News has been filling out Star Wars movie synopsis Mad Libs after reading post-Episode VI Expanded Universe novels." Now, seeing their Obi-Wan vs. Maul spinoff rumor, I can't help but think that the same thing has happened again. And this time, I know exactly which non-canon comic Cosmic Book News could be poaching.

    As always, here's your disclaimer to grab a hefty grain of salt as you digest this rumor.

    I'd bet you the OP was being sarcastic.
