Thanks to the online Disney investor event yesterday, the list of new Star Wars projects is unfolding like a vast opening crawl.
In the "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" it is revealed that Rey is the granddaughter of the evil Emperor Palpatine, but Ridley said that wasn’t always the case.
Leslye Headland will serve as writer and showrunner for a female-centric 'Star Wars' series on Disney+.
The 'swordmaster' on the Star Wars prequels has said that George Lucas cut probably the best lightsaber fight of the entire series.
Back in 2017, it was announced that British director Stephen Daldry, maker of movies like Billy Elliot and Netflix hit The Crown, had signed up to make a standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi movie.
While we await The Mandalorian, Ewan McGregor has teased details of the planned Obi-Wan Kenobi series for Disney's new streaming platform Disney+.
Ewan McGregor has confirmed the 'Star Wars' spin-off series will be set between 'Revenge of the Sith' and 'A New Hope'.
With Ewan McGregor now officially on board to reprise his role as the young (ish) Obi-Wan Kenobi in a new TV spin-off, we're now getting details of where the show will sit in the Star Wars universe.
Ewan McGregor is in talks to return as Jedi master Obi Wan Kenobi in a series for Disney Plus, Variety has confirmed. No other details on the potential series were available. McGregor previously played the character in the three "Star Wars" prequels "The Phantom Menace," "Attack of the Clones," and "Revenge of the Sith." There had […]
In early talks to direct is veteran British director Stephen Daldry, the Oscar-nominated helmsman of movies like 'The Hours' and 'Billy Elliott', according to the Hollywood Reporter.
While we Kenobi-philes wait for that Obi-Wan standalone movie — or to see if the old Jedi still has a role to play in Episode VIII (perhaps in relation to a certain budding Force aficionado?) — the folks at Lucasfilm have thrown us a bone.
When it was announced that the ‘Star Wars’ saga would continue with Episodes 7, 8 and 9, and expand with spin-off movies, many expected Obi-Wan Kenobi to be the subject of one. On the latest episode of the Rebel Force Radio podcast (via Geek Tyrant), Entertainment Weekly writer Anthony Breznican said: “I have heard rumors that the one reason they haven’t moved sooner on Obi-Wan is that they’re not done with Obi-Wan quite yet in the Saga films.
Filling in the blanks between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope had been an Olympic-worthy sport for Star Wars fans for years. While some details have recently been sketched in by the animated series Star Wars Rebels, that 30-year period remains fertile ground for storytellers, with the standalone Rogue One and the solo Han Solo movie along with tie-in novels mining that era.
Legendary Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew has shared part of the original script he owns from ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’, whereby Obi-Wan Kenobi survives his battle with Darth Vader. Mayhew (who’s also in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ as the seven foot wookie) has been sharing pages from his original script on Twitter ever since February.
Did you know that Ewan McGregor was in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens?’ If not, don’t worry, as it seems the actor himself has all but forgotten about it. Norton finally informed him the full line was “Rey, these are your first steps.” This very brief moment has sparked a slew of fan theories about how Rey and Obi-Wan might be related.
A fourth ‘Star Wars’ prequel is on its way, but don’t worry, it’s shaping up pretty well. Welsh director Gareth Edwards’ 'Rogue One’ will tell the story of how the Rebels acquired the plans for the original Death Star. The marketing team behind the film would certainly love to be able to slap Darth Vader on the movie’s posters, but would he fit into a story that we know will be more grounded than the mainline films?
OK, so if you’ve not seen ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ yet, it’s best to stop reading because its director, J.J. Abrams, has confirmed the classic stars that appear in the new film. At the time it’s a quick, disorientating montage of Kylo Ren standing over slain bodies, a cloaked Luke Skywalker reaching towards R2-D2, and a younger version of Rey being abandoned on Jakku. Well Abrams has confirmed that they include a number of original cast members from both trilogies.
Legendary Japanese star Toshiro Mifune rejected offers from George Lucas to appear in the original ‘Star Wars’ film because he believed “it would cheapen the image of samurai”. “I heard from my father that he was offered the role of Obi Wan Kenobi, but he was concerned about how the film would look and that it would cheapen the image of samurai, on which George Lucas had based a lot of the character and fighting style,” said Mifune. Toshiro Mifune appeared in over 170 movies including ‘Rashoman’, ‘Seven Samurai’, and ‘Yojimbo’ and collaborated frequently with Akira Kurosawa whose films were a huge influence on George Lucas.
