Obi-Wan Kenobi is potentially going to adventure across the dunes of Tatooine in the somewhat near future, but fans will have to wait a while longer to see what comes after. Reports about the recently announced Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone Star Wars film were accompanied by news of Yoda and Boba Fett movies. But just how realistic are they?
A report from The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday confirmed rumors that Star Wars fans had been glomming on to for months: that Obi-Wan Kenobi is getting his own standalone film in the Star Wars universe. It will be the third in a series of anthology films after Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the upcoming as-yet-untitled Han Solo origin story.
But the article also snuck in some other pertinent information about two more potential Star Wars universe films: apparently, Lucasfilm is considering Yoda and Boba Fett standalone movies.
To clarify: that Lucasfilm is considering Yoda and Boba Fett movies doesn’t mean they’ll actually happen. Whereas the Obi-Wan movie has already found a director in Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) and is in the works, Yoda and Boba Fett are sans attachments for the time being.
So, basically, don’t get your hopes up too high, even though it’s still pretty exciting news.
The Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone film does not yet have a release date.
