Report: Stephen Daldry To Direct Standalone Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi Movie

It's finally happening!

According to a report from THR, Lucasfilm is in early talks with Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry for a long-anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi solo flick. The project is said to be in the very early stages, without even a script, but it's been long-rumored, and Ewan McGregor, who played the Jedi in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, has said he'd be happy to reprise the role.

Now that fans have finally won this battle and gotten Lucasfilm to work on an Obi-Wan flick, it's on to the next challenge: getting them to make it a buddy comedy with Jar Jar Binks. Meesa think we got a pretty good chance!

We'll be following this one closely and looking for official confirmation. Stay tuned!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
