With Disney all but squeezing every ounce of Hoth juice out of the “Star Wars” name, no surprise that, in addition to the new trilogy and those stand-alone spin-off films they have in the works (one of which is supposedly a Boba Fett movie – yes, because we need that like we needed an explanation of ‘The Force’ in “Phantom Menace”), they might also be working on a trilogy of films built around the character of bearded bad-ass Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The thespian of the galaxy would feature in three films set between the prequel trilogy and original trilogy, says Cinelinx.
“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.”
Meanwhile, development continues on the long-awaited softporn romance starring Mon Mothma and Lumpy the Wookie.
