Perhaps with the film centered about Obi Wan you would almost have to go into his origins into his early childhood into his Jedi training which goes into his teenage years showing him as a young man which then would take us into Phantom Menace and then it would have to take us into Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith

Looks like Obi-Wan Kenobi is off for now.

I wonder if Star Wars Explained will even address this.

There's a rumor going around that Daldry left the film six months ago and that now it might debut on Disney's streaming service.

Personally, I find the idea repugnant. Star Wars movies should always be a theater experience. It doesn't sound likely to me, though.

They were always going to have Star Wars films on the streaming service at some point. I'm a little surprised it's the Obi-Wan film, figured it'd be some smaller thing without a name character, but honestly what better way to push/sell the Disney streaming thing than an exclusive Obi-Wan movie?

I get the logic there. Doesn't sound like they've decided one way or another yet though.

Obi-Wan's a different case, though, as presumably before now it was intended for the big screen. I suppose it's not as bad as what happened with Cloverfield Paradox, but there's something about an Obi-Wan film starring Ewan McGregor never getting a theatrical release that rubs me the wrong way. I wouldn't mind it if it was some C-list character's who only claim to fame is they have an action figure, but Ben Kenobi?

But this might just be me being a luddite, as I don't have Netflix and am opposed to "real" movies premiering that way, especially VFX heavy action films.

Well, rumor today is that Ewan is 'secretly' filming to appear as Obi-Wan in Episode IX, and not for a spinoff film. I guess time will tell the true tale of this mistery .

At this point this Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff is my only hope for Star Wars excitement, to be honest

Sounds like more ******** hearsay rumors.

Who knows. It all seems so bizarre at this point, i won't rule anything out. Stranger things have happened

An Obi-Wan film... #yawn.

Personally.. I think you're almost certain to see at least a couple year gap between Episode 9 and anything else cinematically, simply because they want to see if Abrams rights the ship with 9 before really investing in other stuff.

At the same time, they have to let the stench of the gaslighting campaign on TLJ hopefully subside(but they have a receipt coming for that that is larger than just having Solo bomb).

Also, with having their directors like Gunn and Johnson still go after the fans for their debacle, there is a very good chance they've simply destroyed the brand beyond repair.
