Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi Standalone Movie Is Currently In The Works

It looks like Obi-Wan Kenobi is about to get his own standalone Star Wars movie very soon. It's possible the film could be out in the year of 2020 as the current schedule for Star Wars films stops at 2019 with the release of Episode IX.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, their sources say that director Stephen Daldry is being eyed to make the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie. Daldry has directed many films in the past including the likes of Billy Elliot, The Hours and more. He was also nominated for Best Director at the 2000 Academy Awards for Billy Elliot.

The movie is not far in development as a script has not been written yet. If Daldry signs for real, he's expected to write the movie as well alongside Lucasfilm. Directors in the Star Wars universe have to make sure that Lucasfilm is happy with the script. This is because directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were fired for their work on the Han Solo movie.

If a movie about Obi-Wan Kenobi is being made, Ewan McGregor is expected to reprise his role. The film is also expected to take place between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. However, no actor has been attached to the project just yet as it's too early at this stage.

The other piece of exciting news is that Disney/Lucasfilm are also contemplating making movies about Yoda and Boba Fett too. Again, these are just early ideas as nothing has been 100 percent confirmed at the moment. Lucasfilm wants to concentrate on its current Star Wars lineup that includes The Last Jedi, Han Solo and Episode IX first.
