A stand-alone spin-off movie concerning Obi Wan Kenobi is reportedly in the works at Disney.
A stand-alone film concerning the back-story of Obi Wan Kenobi is set to be added to the ever-expanding Star Wars universe, according to new reports.
The Hollywood Reporter published an article on Thursday evening (August 17th) saying that the project was in the very early stages of development but has piqued the interest of Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry, who is currently in negotiations with Disney to helm the film. If he accepts, he is set to develop the script from the ground up with LucasFilm.
The Kenobi film joins a growing list of other rumoured spin-off movies from the main body of nine films, with projects concerning Yoda and Boba Fett also recently rumoured to be under consideration.

Boyega told ABC that Princess Leia's final appearance in Star Wars is marked properly in 'The Last Jedi'.
The young London-born actor, who plays Finn, revealed to American broadcaster ABC in a new interview this week that he shares “many scenes” with Fisher in the upcoming eighth instalment of the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi, and that the franchise “keeps her alive”.
Fisher died suddenly in December 2016 at the age of 60, and her final big-screen performance will come in The Last Jedi when it is released in cinemas at the end of this year. She had already completed filming her role in the movie at the time of her death, meaning no digital trickery has had to be used, but Leia will have no part in the ninth and final film set for 2019, and Boyega was asked about her final appearances and how the production team had treated it.
The director realises that everybody has "their own relationship" with the franchise.
Despite his film being two years away, director Colin Trevorrow is already facing criticism because of the studio's chioce to have him in the Director's Chair for the ninth episode of the 'Star Wars' franchise. Though he saw huge success both critically and financially with the 'Jurassic World' movie, his most-recent work on 'The Book of Henry' was slated by many across the globe.
Colin Trevorrow is already facing criticism as director of 'Episode IX'
The reaction has led to concern from some of 'Star Wars' biggest fans. As the conclusion to the current trilogy of the 'Star Wars' story, 'Episode IX' will hold higher expectations than both 'The Force Awakens' and 'The Last Jedi', as it'll be serving as the final chapter for fan-favourite characters that have been newly-established in the past few years.

Howard will step in after directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller departed the project earlier this week.
After the spin-off Han Solo movie was hit by the loss of its directors earlier this week, LucasFilm and Disney have acted quickly to fill the gap vacated by announcing Hollywood heavyweight Ron Howard as its replacement.
Two days ago, it was reported that the Star Wars spin-off prequel project suffered the loss of its two directors when Phil Lord and Christopher Miller both walked off the movie, officially put down to “creative differences” with producers.
However, it’s now been confirmed that 63 year old Howard, who was named in the original reports as the favourite to take over, has officially stepped in as director on the movie.

Kathleen Kennedy of LucasFilm intimated that the plan had been for Princess Leia to have been the centre of 'Star Wars Episode IX'.
Kathleen Kennedy, the head of LucasFilm, said in a preview piece for Vanity Fair ahead of The Last Jedi’s release this December, said the original plan had been for Fisher's Princess Leia to have had a much more prominent role in the ninth and final episode of the saga.
“She was having a blast,” said Kennedy. “The minute she finished, she grabbed me and said, ‘I’d better be at the forefront of IX!’ Because Harrison was front and centre on VII, and Mark is front and centre on VIII. She thought IX would be her movie. And it would have been.”
Stephen Colbert summarises 'Star Wars' on 'The Late Show'.
Happy Star Wars Day one and all and, of course, May the fourth be with you. While fans eagerly get down to a serious movie marathon though, everyone else is wondering what on earth is so special about this day. Allow Stephen Colbert to explain.

'The Late Show' host gave a one minute long summary of the original 'Star Wars' movies today (May 4th 2017), referencing Luke Skywalker as a 'simple farm boy' and Darth Vader as 'a handicapped man who needs a full-body respirator just to stay alive'. What makes it all the more funny is that you can't really deny the accuracy in spite of the ridiculous brevity.

The annoying Gungan's eventual fate was never disclosed in the movies, but Chuck Wendig's new novel 'Aftermath: Empire's End' contains new information.

Now, Star Wars fans have finally found out the answer regarding the eventual fate of the irritating Gungan, in a new official novel titled ‘Aftermath: Empire’s End’ – and it might come as a shock to some!
At this juncture, we should issue a spoiler alert – if you’re reading the book, there’s plot reveals ahead!

The occasion itself was soundtracked with the sounds of Star Wars. Notably 'Cantina Band' by Meco at the reception, the 'Rebel Fleet' and 'the Throne Room' by composer John Williams playing in the ceremony itself. All Invitations and stationary was handmade by the bride featuring the Jedi Order Emblem. Each wedding table was named after a Star Wars Planet. Star Wars 'I Spy' game to keep the guests entertained. The cake topper was custom made in the USA depicting Leia and Han Solo, whilst the cake knife is an authentic replica metal lightsaber of Anakin's and attached to a knife blade by the brides uncle.

And a memorable occasion was made even more so when the original Lord of The Sith himself aka Kei - United Kingdom - Monday 12th May 2014
