Somewhat old rumour that's getting bounced around again is that there is a part in the film for someone, possibly female, who would be the offspring of Obi-Wan Kenobi - either a daughter or granddaughter. What do y'all think about that? Me, aside from the instant fanboy "Ahhh! Change!" knee-jerk reaction, dwelling on it could open up interesting possibilities. To go back to TCW, Obi-Wan did have a thing for The Ladies. He seems human in that regard. But never so far as to attachment against the Jedi Code and all that, although he seemed to get really close. But Jedi are "encouraged" to love. Now, if this offspring was conceived and born during the PT, I think that would fall flat against how the character was portrayed in the PT. However, I think the isolation years for Obi-Wan could have some potential there. He's basically in self-imposed punishment exile, waiting for Luke to grow up, dwelling on all the years on his mistakes. Maybe he finds a moment of happiness, immediately regrets it, but he has a kid anyway. There's the drama right there. Soapy relationship twists are not out of the realm of genres that get mashed into Star Wars movies. Y'know what would be a great place to explore this idea further? A Ewan McGreggor Obi-Wan Kenobi Tatooine spin off! Some tragic love interest. Sort of a Western. Bring back Joel Edgerton! Not as the tragic love interest but as Owen, I mean. But, y'know, if Obi-Wan has a kid or grandkid that shows up in Episode 7, damn skippy there's gonna be a flick to cover all that! Also, if this is a direct daughter descendant of Obi-Wan, I would assume the only time they could have been conceived would be, like, five minutes before they blasted off Tatooine. So granddaughter seems likely. And if Obi-Wan had a kid, and Luke finds out, it could be an "out" to the whole "Jedi aren't supposed to be married" thingie that would seem to go against the Jedi Code established in the PT, which, in turn, would grant Luke a way to have a heroic offspring of his own. Who would be the lead in Ep. 7? So, crazy, good idea, bad idea, or totally on the money and we'll be waiting in 2015 to see what Kenobi's offspring will be like?
