A couple of weeks ago a rumor came out that said Lucasfilm was seriously considering an Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off movie. This comes after Obi-Wan won Lucasfilm’s “March Madness” character voting contest as the most popular character, so they quickly abandoned the rumored “no Jedi” rule for the spin-offs to fast-track ideas for an Obi-Wan movie.
Now a new rumor is out that says they’re not just planning one Obi-Wan movie, but three.
This comes from Cinelinx who has some details from a source:
“First up, they are not talking about an Obi-Wan spin-off movie but a trilogy of Obi-Wan movies. I need to stress that these movies are not connected. They aren’t part of a story arc but 3 separate Obi-Wan adventures set between Episodes III and IV.”
“It seems like the 3 movie ideas are as follows:
One set completely on Tatooine and two where Obi-Wan travels elsewhere in the Galaxy.
Qui-Gon Jinn is very much present in these stories. So too is Owen Lars. Several characters from the Clone Wars T.V show would make an appearance. There would be flashbacks to Obi-Wan fighting in the Clone Wars.”
I really like the idea of a trilogy of Obi-Wan movies that aren’t necessarily connected. His detective story in Episode II was probably the best part of the entire movie, and if they capture that feel with these stand alone films they’ll probably be pretty awesome.
