A new hope for Obi-Wan movie

The "Star Wars" Obi-Wan Kenobi movie has no release date yet. Rogue One is an example which made over $1 billion globally.

Because this news has not come directly from Lucasfilm, but instead from unnamed sources we see this as an indication rather than confirmation as to what may be happening behind the scenes for the hotly anticipated Obi-Wan movie.

Stephen Daldry ("The Hours") is in early talks to direct the film, which will likely fix on the master Jedi's years in exile after the poopy prequels.

There's a good reason for Lucasfilm to wait until after Episode IX to explore Obi-Wan's backstory and his time in the Tatooine desert before we meet Alec Guinness' portrayal in the first movie: They're still figuring out how he connects to the new saga, which started with The Force Awakens.

But beyond even the possibility of a Daldry-helmed Obi-Wan Kenobi film is the fact that Lucasfilm is making an Obi-Wan Kenobi film at all.

Reports Australian boy found in Spain
The woman was taken to hospital in a serious condition, and the boy's family has shared a picture of him in a bid to find him. Earlier British authorities and Spanish police denied reports the seven-year-old had been found.

"In the original Star Wars trilogy, Kenobi is a desert-dwelling and war-weary hermit who later proves to be a wise and powerful warrior, brandishing a lightsaber". From a creative standpoint, what can a Kenobi film meaningfully offer audiences that six other movies (let alone two animated TV series) haven't already? That theory seems more plausible now in light of the timing of this news just months away from Last Jedi's release. Or is this standalone film really being engineered as a way to shed light on Rey's backstory if Star Wars: The Last Jedi does, as some fans have long theorized, reveal that she is a descendant of his? If the negotiation works out Daldry would work with Lucas Film to develop the new movie.

The Hollywood Reporter said Daldry will be part of the team overseeing the development and writing if the deal is to go ahead.

The upcoming movie will be separate from the main narrative of the "Star Wars" sequel trilogy which showcases the continuing saga of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

As mentioned above, the Star Wars franchise has gained significant popularity.
