Today you may be seeing people linking to a rumor that says Lucasfilm is planning an Obi-Wan Kenobi Anthology trilogy. Unfortunately this is nothing more than a site digging up a rumor that’s more than six months old in the hopes that no one remembers it and they’ll get the credit for “breaking” the news.
â€œFirst up, they are not talking about an Obi-Wan spin-off movie but a trilogy of Obi-Wan movies. I need to stress that these movies are not connected. They arenâ€™t part of a story arc but 3 separate Obi-Wan adventures set between Episodes III and IV.â€
â€œIt seems like the 3 movie ideas are as follows:
One set completely on Tatooine and two where Obi-Wan travels elsewhere in the Galaxy.
Qui-Gon Jinn is very much present in these stories. So too is Owen Lars. Several characters from the Clone Wars T.V show would make an appearance. There would be flashbacks to Obi-Wan fighting in the Clone Wars.â€
That’s what was stated back in October, and this new rumor really doesn’t add anything to it. It also doesn’t provide any evidence that it could be real, as over the last eight months it started to seem like the idea was just something being tossed around at Lucasfilm and not a real planned trilogy.
With Lucasfilm trying to crack down on leaks we’re probably going to see a lot more crazy rumors like this pop up. People are desperate for Star Wars news and without new stuff leaking, people will dig up ancient rumors and present them as news.
