Around Oohlo parts, we’re super-excited about all the Star Wars films, including Episode VIII; the first anthology, Rogue One; and the second, starring Alden Ehrenreich as young Han Solo. But of all the characters who might merit a standalone movie, there’s one whose lightsaber cuts through the entire crowd:
Sir Alec Guinness first stirred our hearts; Ewan McGregor warmed some other parts …
… and, as glorious as it’s been to see Luke, Leia, Chewie, R2 (*sob*) and Han (*sob*) again, we still need a little more backstory on our friend, Ben.
Enter director/cinematographer Rich Williamson with the teaser Obi-Wan deserves. Editing together bits from McGregor’s Last Days in the Desert and the Star Wars films, Williamson created Kenobi: A Star Wars Story Teaser, which also features Ciarán Hinds and a most excellent cameo.
McGregor has made it known (due to constant queries from journalists and fans) he’d love to be involved in telling more of Obi-Wan’s story. If we keep this drum beating, hopefully, we’ll hear that the third anthology will indeed be his.
