While everyone is all tied up in the Episode VII rumours, it looks like there may be another Star Wars trilogy in production… possibly.
According to the website Cinelinx, there could be rumblings in the Force in the form of a new Obi-Wan Kenobi trilogy starring Ewan McGregor as the Jedi Knight.
The movies are apparently a priority for Disney and Lucasfilm and would take place between Episodes III and IV.
However, the movies wouldn’t be a completely interwoven trilogy but rather three separate stories featuring him with one taking place entirely on Tatooine and the other two taking place off-planet somewhere. But, here’s the part that gets us excited – obviously if there’s anything to it – it seems the movies could feature Darth Maul, Qui-Gon Jinn and characters from the Clone Wars; could this be the true wrapping up of the Darth Maul arc from the Clone Wars series?
While we can’t stress enough that this is HEAVY RUMOUR territory, we’d be liars if we didn’t think there’s more stories to tell with this character/these characters and it would be wonderful to see them on the big screen again as many of us here feel that McGregor really only felt like Obi-Wan in episode III.
