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.
This is the way.

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 ďExpendables styleĒ film where OWK gets all these semi retired Rogue Jedi together and they hand the galaxy itís ass.  Dolph Lundgren plays Kit Fister, Kit Fistoís you get brother.  Jason Statham plays bald Jedi who just kills people and doesnít 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 Stathamís 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.

Ewan as Obi-Wan was fantastic.  I'm looking forward to this.

Honestly, I'm more interested in seeing well done "TV shows" than more movies.

Think you can tell a lot more on a format like this than a film so Iím excited.  Ewan was the best PT actor too so glad to see him doing this.  Heís not exactly needing the work or anything.

Because I am never satisfied, as soon as this was confirmed I started wishing and hoping for an appearance by Liam Neeson from time to time as the Ghost of Qui-Gon.

Good point, I forgot the big gap at the films beginning.

Still I think thereís hope with the Kenobi series ultimately having a quasi-tie to the end of Solo sort of.  I wonder if that was the plan all along.  Iíd love to see the Solo sequel in whatever format at this point.

I'd love to see Solo become a weekly series on Disney + as well.

I think the mini-adventures that Han and Chewie could go on would be fantastic in this format.

Looking at IMDB it doesn't look like Alden Ehrenreich is very busy either.

Iíve been impressed with their ability to get the actual actors to reprise roles so easily.  If Iím getting D+ old be interested in almost anything g they try.
