An Obi-Wan Kenobi film is getting closer to a reality. With the anticipated success of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Disney is looking toward its next Star Wars franchise. Disney insiders are discussing pre-production on an upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi film. These are the things a good Kenobi film needs.
Obi-Wan trying to save the Jedi
When the Galactic Empire was formed and Palpatine became Emperor, the disguised Sith Lord ordered the extermination of the Jedi Order. Jedi Masters Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda were the only members of the Jedi Council to survive the initial slaughter. Yoda went into exile after being injured fighting the new Emperor. Obi-Wan Kenobi took baby Luke Skywalker to Tatooine. But would he remain there, inactive for years, just to protect him?
Obi-Wan Kenobi believes other Jedi survived and have gone into hiding. It would make sense that he would try to contact other Jedi and begin a resistance to fight the Sith. The original Star Wars trilogy would be the sad outcome of Obi-Wan’s failure. He spent years trying to save the Jedi, only to end up alone and waiting for Luke to embrace his destiny.
