OFFICIAL: 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Spin-Off Movie Is Finally Happening; Get The Details!

Its finally official everyone!

One of my own personal dream Star Wars films has finally been announced, Lucasfilm and Disney are moving ahead with a stand-alone Obi-Wan Kenobi Spin-off film with Billy Elliot and The Hours director, Stephen Daldry in early talks to helm to the project.

According to THR, Sources say talks are at the earliest of stages and that the project has no script. If a deal makes, Daldry would oversee the development and writing with Lucasfilm brass. In typical Lucasfilm fashion, plot details are being kept firmly under wraps.

While actor Ewan McGregor has not been officially announced, it's all but guaranteed that the actor will be reprising his role as the legendary jedi, Obi-Wan Kenobi.

As you can probably imagine, we are all insanely excited about this official news, especially if Lucasfilm decide to take the story in a cool "western genre" direction.

No release date has been announced for Obi-Wan Kenobi.

A New International 'Thor: Ragnarok' Trailer Features Cool New Footage & Dialogue

"Thor, I sense a great change in your future..."

Marvel Studios has released a brand new international trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, which features some cool new footage and dialogue from none other than the Sorcerer Supreme aka Doctor Strange who we've known for awhile will have a supporting role in the film. How big of a role is still anyone's guess, but for now its seems to be a significant role in the film's plot. 

The rest of the trailer appears to just be a different cut of the other trailers we've already seen with a few new shots here and there. Enjoy.

In the film, Thor will arrive in Asgard after hearing about trouble in his home world, and when he arrives he finds Loki’s style of ruling (while impersonating Odin) has led to some lapses in the rules and leads to the freeing of prisoner Hela. Thor and Hela naturally come to blows when they meet, which sees Thor “blasted” to Sakaar, described as “a barbaric planet ruled by the charming but nefarious Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum).” There he meets Valkyrie, who is hiding out on the planet, and brings him to the Grandmaster to make him a gladiator, where he meets the most popular competitor in the arena, The Hulk, and loses his trademark hair and hammer.

Check out the awesome trailer below:
