    Not official but majorly hinted at to the point where its hard to imagine why it wouldn't be made.

    It's funny how uncle Owen talks about the status of Obi-Wan.

    "That wizard's just a crazy old man." [He's alive]
    And then....
    "I don't think he exists anymore." [Not certain, but Obi-Wan might be dead]
    And then....
    "He died about the same time as your father." [He's dead]

    I want this so bad, but at the same time I seriously don't want to watch another movie set on a desert planet/tattooine. But I don't want a Obi-Wan Prequel either because it'd feel weird and unnecessary. Hopefully only a small portion of the film will be in Tattooine if it's one post ROTS (which it most likely is)

    If it is post ROTS how do you want Obi Wan taken off Tatooine?

    He could Astral Project. :)
    The effort could age him a decade so that he is transformed from Ewan to Alec.

    Idk, maybe Qui-Jon tells him in order to achieve the ghost ability thingy he has to travel to someplace else and face trials there, or maybe he could visit Padmes grave on Naboo, i just don't want the majority of the film to be on that god damn sand planet

    Flashbacks to previous adventures could be used if they really thought one location was a big problem. I’m not really worried. They’d make it work.

    I do wish people would use the guy's proper name i.e. "Walrus Man", and not these new-fangled monikers. ;)

    Maybe he could leave Tattooine to carry out a mission for Bail, or the fledgling alliance. (Perhaps extracting an ally from the Empire's grasp?) I like Tattooine, but it's already in five movies. Lets see some new areas of the galaxy that aren't just one endless desert.:)

    I seriously want to see an Obi-Wan movie that is entirely Tatooine centric. Yes, we've had a lot of Tatooine

    Only other option I would agree with is Obi-Wan goes on a weekend Mos Espa bender and wakes up on a transport out of system - "^$%#$!!" - and has to get back there.

    The alliance is not started until 2 years before Yavin.

    True. But it's founders (Bail Organa, Mon Mothma, ect.) were around long before then.

    Ewan wants to do it. Hopefully, Lucasfilm will let him.

    Oh God, please, let the rumors be true[face_praying]:obiwan:! I'm new to the Star Wars world, but Obi-Wan Kenobi is already one of my favorite characters, plus Ewan is one of my favorite actors, his talent was not exploited enough in the prequels.

    I've seen many, Big Fish and Trainspotting are on my list of favorite movies of all time, I also loved his performance in Moulin Rouge!, then there are others like The Island, angels and demons and even Star Wars whose main objective is to raise money , and unfortunately an actor doesn't have good material to shine in this type of productions, but he always manages to stand out. He is talented, charismatic and has a good voice.

    Well, John Jackson Miller's amazing "Kenobi" novel is already a very good reference to look at for a Kenobi film. Krayt dragons, Tuskens, Jundland wastes. What's not to love?

    It's one of my favorite Legends books. It is like a western with Obi-Wan.

    I hope the effort transforms Ewan to Tom Hanks and then to Alec.

    I think there's plenty of room to make a very interesting Anthology movie of Obi.

    His back story is woven into the Saga already (PT, OT) so they can just skip all that and spend time on him.

    We've never seen Alderaan. Let alone Alderaan secretly working against the Empire.

    Why not have him be Jimmy Smit's Batman, doing secret missions for the Rebellion in the years the Skywalkers are just kids and offscreen. All that "serving my father during the Clone wars" stuff can be expanded on, while Empire Jedi hunters scour the universe for him.

    Just make it fun though. Ewan has a personality and a scathing wit - as did Alec Guiness. The writers need to use that.

    I think there is a lot of potential to make a film based on events BEFORE he becomes a hermit on Tatooine. After he drops off baby Luke immediately after ROTS he has lots of loose ends to tie up to ensure he remains hidden and things to do before he finally settles down. This could totally include trips to Dagobah, Aalderaan and other planets. Perhaps there will be other threats to eliminate to protect baby Luke and/or Leia as well.
