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.
Somehow, an old wizard stuck for years in a lonesome hut on a forgotten desert world might be the most fascinating character in the Star Wars franchise. At least, you'd be forgiven for thinking so, given the books, comics and TV shows dedicated to examining Obi-Wan's lengthy time on Tatooine (and even now a potential movie, too). But what is it about this character and this time in-between trilogies, that has lead Star Wars to revisit it time and time again?

Could Universal be trying to keep the dream of its "Dark Universe" alive? Plus, what's to come on the season finale of The Flash, and teasers for the CW's new Roswell reboot. To me, my spoilers!

Disney and Lucasfilm have yet to formally announce if an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is going to happen, but Sideshow Collectibles is more than happy to give us a sneak peek of what the character might look like if the film gets made.
Fans have been talking about an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie for years. Meanwhile, Ewan McGregor has repeatedly said he'd like to return to the role. Now, if rumours are to be believed, Disney could soon announce it as the next Star Wars Story film, perhaps as early as this weekend, during the D23 Expo. But between Marvel's comics and the Rebels TV show, do we really need to see the further adventures of young Obi-Wan?
The Star Wars canon changed forever Saturday night with the latest episode of Star Wars Rebels, "Twin Suns." It was a massive episode in terms of character, Star Wars history, and precedent. So we simply had to talk to Dave Filoni, the executive producer of Rebels, to get the scoop on the Obi-Wan Kenobi/Darth Maul rematch... and that very surprising cameo.
You know how Luke confronted Obi-Wan Kenobi for saying that Darth Vader killed his father when the truth was that Darth Vader was his father?
