Sources revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that a new standalone Star Wars movie is in early development and will centre around Obi-Wan Kenobi. Disney and Lucasfilm are reportedly in cahoots with director Stephen Daldry, the same person who was behind Billy Elliot.
The character was first played by Alec Guinness and later by Ewan McGregor. Obi-Wan is most famously known as the Jedi master who trained Anakin Skywalker.
