I think it would be a movie with potential, but Disney/Lucasfilm needs to get away from the main characters with the anthology movies.

Give me the Magnificent Seven told with Jedi that survived order 66!  There's an entire galaxy to explore, but they can't get away from the main character.

I would rather have a dozen Rogue One type movies than the Han Solo movie, or even an Obi-Wan movie.  Their stories have been told.

Han Solo sequel guaranteed. It'll be Magnificent Seven. They'll pretend they aren't copying the old Marvel comics and replace FAN FAVORITE JAXXON with some silly alien, and Antonie Fuqua, who has made that type of movie at least 3 times, could be hired to direct then fired and replaced with...Brett Ratner or someone.

First there were rumors that Ewan McGregor would be on the red carpet for tonight's Solo premiere...

Then this Kenobi Pre-production blurb from FanthaTracks... 

Official Announcement coming soon or fake news?

OWK: The Reckoning

An “Expendables style” film where OWK gets all these semi retired Rogue Jedi together and they hand the galaxy it’s ass.  Dolph Lundgren plays Kit Fister, Kit Fisto’s you get brother.  Jason Statham plays bald Jedi who just kills people and doesn’t say much.  And much like Peter Cushing being digitally put into Rogue One, Charles Bronson is digitally added in as a Jedi who says even less than Statham’s Jedi and he seriously just kills everyone.

Oh and Mace Windu is back because we never saw a body and I wanna revive that conspiracy theory from the PT days.

I saw this circulating again, too.  Seeing how the rumor has kept going for what, 3 years now?  It seems really clear that this project has been in development for some time.  And I think that they have been deliberately taking their time to develop projects the right way, despite Bob Iger stating that Disney wants to release a new Star Wars film ever yet.

I think in this case Lucasfilm wants to keep the Obi-Wan project under wraps until they're absolutely ready to go public about it.  In large part because I think they're trying to right the ship.  There was a somewhat polarized reaction to THE LAST JEDI.  They had to bring in a second director to re-shape ROGUE ONE, which we only learned long after the fact.  They had two successive projects that had director changes in varying stages of production (Solo and Episode 9).  And on top of that there was the Josh Trank/Boba Fett debacle where that project got shelved. I think Lucasfilm is being a bit more guarded given that track record.
