With the likes of Han Solo getting his own standalone film, another Star Wars veteran is set to have an outing in a solo project – Obi-Wan Kenobi. The character has been played by both Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor in past films.
Yep, the Jedi Jesus will be getting his own film directed by Stephen Daldry – the guy behind Billy Elliot (2000). It is currently one of the several projects being developed by Lucasfilm and Disney that falls outside the current Star Wars canon. This includes features and film projects focussing on the likes of Yoda, bounty hunter Boba Fett, and other characters.
