With cameras rolling on Star Wars Episode VII again and with numerous stories being circulated about the expanded Star Wars universe of films, rumours are now heating up regarding an Obi-Wan Kenobi solo film.
It has been announced that once Episode VII hits cinemas in December 2015, the film will also continue with two more sequels, which will be released in 2017 and 2019 respectively. But in between, there will reportedly be three spin-off films featuring key characters from the Star Wars universe.
Although no spin-off films have been officially inked as yet, speculation is now rife that Obi-Wan Kenobi could be one of the characters. This news comes hot on the heels of a recent vote on a website, where the character was voted as the most popular Star Wars character.
Ewan McGregor portrayed Obi-Wan in the three Star Wars prequels and could still be game to play him once again. And as far as the development behind the character goes, Obi-Wan will also be popping up in several episodes of the Disney XD animated series Star Wars Rebels.
Would you see an Obi-Wan Kenobi film or do you think other characters deserve a shot for their own solo adventure?
