We’ve got a sequel trilogy and three spin-off films coming, but do Disney and Lucasfilm have even more “Star Wars” movies planned for us?
Cinelinx has posted a rumor that the studios are developing a separate trilogy of spin-off films dedicated to the character of Obi-Wan Kenobi and set between the prequel and original trilogy. Their source says:
“First up, they are not talking about an Obi-Wan spin-off movie but a trilogy of Obi-Wan movies. I need to stress that these movies are not connected. They aren’t part of a story arc but three separate Obi-Wan adventures set between Episodes III and IV.
It seems like the three movie ideas are as follows: One set completely on Tatooine and two where Obi-Wan travels elsewhere in the Galaxy. Qui-Gon Jinn is very much present in these stories. So too is Owen Lars. Several characters from the ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ TV show would make an appearance. There would be flashbacks to Obi-Wan fighting in the Clone Wars.”
The report is just the latest in a series of rumors that have run the gamut from small to gigantic in the past week, the latter being so potentially spoiler heavy that I opted not to report it here. The talk has obviously gotten around to those working on the film too as some new posters are up over at Pinewood Studios in London where filming continues – posters warning people not to give away secrets.
