"Begun, the new Star Wars rumors have. The usually reliable Heat Vision blog at The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the next installment in the Star Wars extended universe (after the director-juggling Han Solo prequel and, probably, a Boba Fett film) will be an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie. No word on who'll play the Jedi—it was Alec Guinness in the first three movies and Ewan McGregor in the prequels—but Billy Elliot's Stephen Daldry is in talks to direct.

Chatter about a new Star Wars movie, especially a non-saga iteration, fires up the WIRED Culture Slack channel like lightsabers in the arena on Geonosis. And our writers Emma Grey Ellis, Brendan Nystedt, and Adam Rogers have particularly strong opinions. Nobody seems too afraid—fear leads to anger, anger to hate, etc. But … concerned? Perhaps. Nerdy? Definitely.

Adam Rogers: News of an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie makes me feel a little like the mid-1930s particle physicist who, when informed of the surprise discovery of the muon, said: Who ordered that? I love the Star Wars universe, but unless I'm forgetting a background player, Old Ben from beyond the Dune Sea is the only character to appear in all seven saga movies (if you count his voice wafting into Star Wars: The Force Awakens), both iterations of the Clone Wars cartoon, the Rebels cartoon (where he's one side of the single best lightsaber fight in the entire canon), and at least two books. The point of the extended universe, I thought, was to explore places we haven't yet seen. I've been from one end of this galaxy to the other, and I've seen a lot of Ben Kenobi. Who's with me?…"

Need? Not a single soul. Might enjoy if it is well made would be many millions.

When would it be set, his childhood years or his desert hobo years?

First we need a movie about how Jar Jar turned to the darkside.

Running for cover now!

Tango0119 Aug 2017 10:49 p.m. PST

No!… please…not again!!!


Captain Gideon20 Aug 2017 8:31 a.m. PST

VCarter why would you say that?

Since it's NOT true regardless of what some have posted about JAR JAR BINKS why don't you just leave him alone and talk about something else?

Ghostrunner20 Aug 2017 8:34 a.m. PST

Maybe he's conducting a Pavlovian experiment.

Captain Gideon20 Aug 2017 8:37 a.m. PST

And maybe NOT.

nazrat20 Aug 2017 11:26 a.m. PST

It worked!

Ghostrunner20 Aug 2017 3:55 p.m. PST

Three more of these threads and I'll have enough for my Behavioral Sciences dissertation.

I'll step it up a notch, Jar Jar doesn't really exist he is just a character in a movie – sorry historical document.

Captain Gideon21 Aug 2017 7:44 a.m. PST

VCarter why did you bring it up in the first place???

VCarter Supporting Member of TMP21 Aug 2017 11:13 a.m. PST

The other kids on the playground made me do it.

Ghostrunner21 Aug 2017 12:07 p.m. PST

Now I've got images of jar jar binks with his tongue stuck to a frozen flag pole…

Now add a good lightning storm…


I'd be interested in an Obi-Wan movie… but not sure how they could really fit into what we've seen already unless:

A: Young Obi Wan before he meets Qui-Gon (no thanks)
B: Obi Wan post EP1… which means Anakin is in it… been done already
C: Obi-Wan post EP3… Obi vs. Sandpeople and Sarlaccs? Eh…

Captain Gideon21 Aug 2017 10:52 p.m. PST

Sure they did VCarter.

And Ghostrunner IF(and I highly doubt you do) you have pictures produce them,and if you can't then stop saying it.
