    Lucasfilm quietly confirms they are working on an Obi-Wan Kenobi film:

    No surprise there but glad to have it and the others confirmed. No script yet but I guess the question is McGregor or recast?

    I still think it's McGregor. He mysteriously was a no show for the 40th Anniversary panel at Star Wars Celebration. Not even a video correspondence. I mean granted there were some plausible reasons. 1. He was tied up with "Trainspotting 2" press junket schedule which released just the month before. 2. He may have simply cost too much (he's been pretty busy just this year). 3. They may have already told him this was in the works, and told him to sit this year out until an official announcement.

    The question I have is are they going to delve into a pre-Episode 1 Obi-Wan or just time jump between that and senior Obi-Wan pre-Episode 4?

    I think the latter. I believe either Rebels or the current comics or both are starting to peel at those stories. It was left pretty wide open to be explored, well, now.

    Yes! Obi-Wan is one of my favorite characters so I was hoping for this to become a reality like many others. I expect the movie to take place not long after Episode 3 to avoid the comics and Rebels stories.

    It would also allow some flashbacks from the prequel era as Obi-Wan takes in all the changes that have taken place in his life. It would be great if characters like Yoda, Anakin, and Mace Windu could show up again and even the live-action debut of Ahsoka Tano.

    And I'll say this: Ewan McGregor needs to return since his portrayal of the character was one of the good things from the prequels.
