Double No Sh*t: Multiple Obi-Wan Kenobi movies in development
Oh word? Say it ain’t
obviously so? Remember last month when I posted an article with the elegant title, No Sh*t Rumor: Obi-Wan getting standalone ‘Star Wars’ flick? Well here’s the sequel. Double No Sh*t. Hopefully surprising no one, it turns out that Old Ben will be getting more than one movie.
The updated rumor comes from Cinelinx, a site who admittedly has yet to prove their authority. But a rumor is a rumor and this one is not only great, it has some weight because of the above story.
According to the site, Lucasfilm is potentially developing three different Obi-Wan Kenobi stand alone films. Not a trilogy mind you, but three separate films. All would be set between Episode III and IV, one would be fully on Tatooine, the other two would not. Characters such as Owen Lars would play a role and there would be flashback to The Clone Wars. Characters from that show would also appear, and the Force Ghost of Qui-Gon Jinn would factor in.
Now, is this true? Who knows. The site also admits their source could be misinformed. A more logical explanation of the multiple film idea is Lucasfilm is developing three different ideas for a single movie and haven’t settled on one yet. So, to an outsider, that might seem like three movies when it’s really just one.
This is dope enough for me. McGregor rocks. Obi-Wan (ORIGINAL TRILOGY STATUS, YOU FUCKS) has been my favorite character. Let’s see more of his adventures as the Worst Jedi Master ever.
