Odds are, that if you ask any Star Wars fan out there what spin-off and solo movies they’d want to see from the now Disney-owned era of the property, one of the first films they’ll mention is a standalone movie with Ewan McGregor’s version of Obi-Wan Kenobi, after the actor’s performance as the character has basically, generally been proclaimed as fans as the overall best thing about the Prequel trilogy.
It’s no surprise that McGregor has been asked repeatedly about coming back to the Star Wars universe as well, which he has always seemed to show enthusiasm towards, and just continues makes the idea seem that much better.
Filmmaker Rich Williamson recently cut together a new fan-made trailer for a Kenobi spin-off film though, using dialogue and footage from McGregor’s recent film, Last Days in the Desert, where he played Jesus and coincidentally enough – the footage and dialogue lines up well with what many fans had thought the Obi-Wan spin-off film would focus on, as the Jedi watched over Luke Skywalker on Tatooine and struggles to come to terms with his failures and those of his past loved ones.
Turns out, it makes for a pretty awesome trailer too:
Okay, just make it happen already Disney, will ya? Not only would it make for some interesting connective tissue between Obi-Wan in the Prequels and in the Original Trilogy, but it would also give McGregor a chance to play the character with some hopefully better material as well, rather than some of the seriously cringe-worthy dialogue he had to work with in the Prequel films.
It seems like one of the more obvious choices for a solo movie, and until we finally know for sure whether or not it will happen, I guess Williamson’s trailer will just have to do.
