Well, it’s finally happening. The Hollywood Reporter says that Stephen Daldry, the Oscar-nominated director behind Billy Elliot and The Hours, is in early talks to direct and develop a script about Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ewan McGregor, however, is not yet attached.
Fans have been talking about an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie for years. Meanwhile, Ewan McGregor has repeatedly said he’d like to return to the role. Now, if rumors are to be believed, Disney could soon announce it as the next Star Wars Story film, perhaps as early as this weekend, during the D23 Expo. But between Marvel’s…
The Star Wars canon changed forever Saturday night with the latest episode of Star Wars Rebels, “Twin Suns.” It was a massive episode in terms of character, Star Wars history, and precedent. So we simply had to talk to Dave Filoni, the executive producer of Rebels, to get the scoop on the Obi-Wan Kenobi/Darth Maul…
This Saturday on Star Wars Rebels, Darth Maul finally faces down with Obi-Wan Kenobi. It’s the rematch he’s been waiting for since The Phantom Menace, when Kenobi cut him in two and derailed his rise to power. But it was a battle that was never supposed to happen.
This week’s Star Wars Rebels is a cool episode that features Wedge. And it’s great. But before that episode has even aired, Disney has released a teaser for the March 18 episode. They never do that and there’s a reason. It’s that good.
Star Wars Rebels’ third season is building towards a do-or-die standoff between Darth Maul and the opponent he’s been hunting for nearly two decades: old Ben Kenobi. It’s the first time we’ll have seen something like it told in Disney’s new canon... but it’s not the first time Star Wars has ever pondered such this…
Unlike pretty much any other bounty hunter in Star Wars, Greedo’s known for being a bit crap at his job. After all, our one and only encounter with him in the movie is him getting shot up by Han Solo. But in the Disney canon, it’s now not the only time the Rodian has crossed paths with a big Star Wars hero.
Yup, that’s right. Obi-Wan Kenobi is coming to Star Wars Rebels in his final form, Alec Guinness. But that’s just one of many face-melting things in this new mid-season trailer for Star Wars Rebels season three.
What happens when you go from being one of the most prominent Jedi masters in the galaxy to an old man hiding out in the desert? Well, for one thing, your hair gets really long.
Ewan McGregor throws water on Obi-Wan movie rumors. Jon Favreau may be returning to the director’s seat at Marvel. 10 Cloverfield Lane’s director heads to Black Mirror. Plus more Power Rangers filming, even more footage from Civil War, and a new clip from Agents of SHIELD. Spoilers get!
Obi-Wan Kenobi being struck down—and becoming more powerful than we could possibly imagine—is a defining moment in the Star Wars saga. It informs so much of Luke’s journey from farmhand to Jedi Knight. It’s a chapter in the tragic tale of Anakin Skywalker. But in the initial script, it wasn’t going to happen.
Joe Russo discusses Civil War’s darker tone. Jared Leto extols the virtues of playing the Joker in Suicide Squad. Gwendoline Christie promises more Brienne action on Game of Thrones this year. Plus Ewan McGregor is game for an Obi-Wan movie, new pictures from Arrow, and a new SHIELD clip. To me, my Spoilers!
There are plenty of rumors about a spin off Star Wars movie that chart Obi-Wan Kenobi’s adventures on Tatooine between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. But Marvel’s Star Wars comics have been doing a grand job of exploring that ground already. This week the comic returned to not-quite-old Ben with some interesting…
Back in the days of the prequels, Obi-Wan Kenobi could flip around and swing his lightsaber everywhere like any other action hero—while Ben Kenobi was a much subdued Jedi. That is, until this week’s issue of Marvel’s Star Wars, which gives us an Old Ben who can do a lot more than silly wooping noises.
That 'Civilised Age' being 'that time where you can spend around $2-300 and get an eerily realistic doll of Sir Alec Guinness', really. If that isn't civilisation, I don't know what is, frankly.
While everyone else was getting excited about that other Star Wars teaser recently, over the weekend Legendary toy makers Hot Toys had a teaser of their own - and boy howdy, any willpower I had in avoiding getting some of these absurdly expensive beauties is fading with every reveal.
Jón Gnarr Kristinsson, mayor of Reykjavík, Iceland, is cooler than your mayor. Before you contest our claim, we humbly present to you the following pieces of supporting evidence.
Now that Darth Maul has returned to the Star Wars universe, we can expect him and his brother, Savage Opress, to kick up more mayhem in the fifth season of Clone Wars. But Maul isn't the biggest, baddest Sith Lord in the galaxy; Darth Sidious will finally show himself in the flesh, and he won't be happy. And what has…
