For a movie that never actually got officially announced, it feels as though we’ve been hearing about the prospect of a Star Wars spinoff film starring Ewan McGregor as the galaxy’s favourite Jedi-in-Exile, Obi-Wan Kenobi, forever. That’s mainly thanks to all the times people have peppered McGregor with questions about his return to the galaxy far, far away.

Remember the first time you tried alcohol? How it was gross and off-putting but eventually it got better? Later, maybe you grew to like it but you always knew something wasn't right about it? That was the first (admittedly strange) thing I thought of after seeing Disney's Christopher Robin, a movie that starts weird, gets better and leaves you feeling just a little mixed up.

Well, it's finally happening. The Hollywood Reporter says that Stephen Daldry, the Oscar-nominated director behind Billy Elliot and The Hours, is in early talks to direct and develop a script about Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ewan McGregor, however, is not yet attached.
