Cosmic Book News are reporting that a Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off is seriously being considered by the good folks at Lucasfilm.
According to their source at the company, the film would be set between Episodes III and IV and would see Ewan McGregor reprise the role, this time in exile on Tatooine.
Added to that, the villain would be none other than Darth Maul with a possible plot point involving a five-year-old Luke Skywalker being used as bait for Obi-Wan.
Cosmic Book News, ofcourse, ran a story recently about a possible plot for Episode VII involving Emperor Palpatine and the off-spring of Luke.
As for this latest rumour, I get the feeling it’s wishful thinking from the guys at the site. After all, Maul died in Episode I but was ‘resurrected’ for The Clone Wars – a series just cancelled by Disney.
Disney, it seems, are only interest in producing sequel material for Star Wars having already cancelled the aforementioned animated series and Detours. Still, it would be brilliant to see Ewan McGregor back as Obi-Wan as he was one of the real success stories of the prequels.
