Now that Star Wars: The Force Awakens has resurrected the “galaxy far, far away” for the next generation, the future has seemingly limitless possibilities. Writer/director Rian Johnson is currently filming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and we’ve already made our case for why Yoda deserves to make his return to the saga.
However, his fellow Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi is also due to rejoin the Star Wars universe in a big way sometime soon, especially considering that actors Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor briefly lent their voices to the latest film. Now it appears that Kenobi may soon be getting the standalone movie he deserves. According to unnamed sources cited by Variety, a Star Wars anthology movie focused on Obi-Wan Kenobi is currently in “early development” at Disney. Per the sources, director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) is in talks to helm the film.
