Rumor: Obi-Wan Kenobi Film Is Happening, Production Begins 2019

Back in August, The Hollywood Reporter ran with a story stating that Lucasfilm was moving forward with a currently unconfirmed Obi-Wan Kenobi movie. Apparently, Stephen Daldry was eyed as the director. Now, Omega Underground has a bit of an update to the rumor.

According to the outlet, production on Obi-Wan’s long awaited solo film will begin in early 2019.

“Omega Underground has an update of sorts as a production source has revealed the studio is expecting this Kenobi film to begin filming at Pinewood Studios UK (confirmed stage location) sometime in January 2019.”

As of now, only two future Star Wars films are known about. Solo: A Star Wars Story releases in theaters on May 25, 2018, with the finale of the current trilogy, Episode IX, flying into cinemas on December 20, 2019.
