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.
