So, What’s Up With This Obi-Wan Movie?

August 17, 2017

Today The Hollywood Reporter published a claim that Stephen Daldry is being considered to direct a standalone film focusing on Obi-Wan.  The film has NOT yet been announced by Lucasfilm so it’s not official but generally THR and Variety are pretty plugged in with what’s going on.  (I think they are getting their info from talent agents.)  The report emphasizes that there’s no script yet so nobody has been signed but it’ll get ugly fast if it doesn’t involve Ewan McGregor.

Both THR and Variety are also reporting that Lucasfilm still wants standalones about Yoda, Boba Fett, and (for God’s sake why) Jabba the Hutt.

More of my .02 on this…it’ll be interesting to see what they come up with.  The Maul/Obi-Wan rematch was already done on Rebels so it won’t be in the film.  I doubt you’ll have an entire movie of Obi-Wan haggling with Jawas or arm wrestling Sand People.  Still there is stuff you can do, like Obi-Wan flash backing to his earliest days at the Temple, communing with Qui-Gon (dude, if Liam Neeson comes back too I’ll explode), or bailing Luke out of jail for underage drinking before Uncle Owen finds out.  We’ll see.  But these reports will force Lucasfilm’s hand into confirming or denying this project very soon.

Pic From Star Wars: The Prequel Trilogy

The Force Arena mobile game app is about to add the Clone Wars era. According to the Prequel Trilogy page, confirmed characters include Anakin, Ahsoka, Yoda, Mace Windu, General Grievous, Darth Maul, battle droids, and lots of clone troopers. I’d assume Obi-Wan is a sure bet; I don’t know why they’d overlook him. In all likelihood they’ll include Count Dooku, Sidious, Asajj Ventress, and Padmé at some point.

Update: Here’s a sneak peek of gameplay video…

Star Words: Midichlorians Explained

August 11, 2017

The Star Words series discusses the scene where Qui-Gon explains midichlorians to a young Anakin:

But now, with a simple question from Anakin, he explains their meaning. And I just love this scene, because it demonstrates Qui-Gon’s patience and teaching ability, his gentle smiles and clarifications as Anakin looks more and more bewildered and incredulous. (“They live inside me” has a great wait, is this guy completely nuts??? kind of delivery.) It shows us what might have been, if only Qui-Gon had survived to be Anakin’s master. Now there’s no more mystery, and we understand the Force like any other mundane scientific principle.

Or not.
