According to some reports, an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie might already be in nearly development at Disney. However, it seems like nobody knows for now where this movie will be set and what part of the Jedi master’s life it will present. The Star Wars saga seems to be expanding and the studio wants to make individual movies for all the major characters that have appeared until now. The closest one is the individual Han Solo movie, which is going to be released next year. It appears like those movies are meant to fill the one-year gaps between the parts of the main trilogy, the one with Rey, Finn and Kylo Ren.
An Obi-Wan Kenobi movie
Still, there are only three periods of time during which this new movie could take place. The events before The Phantom Menace, with a very young and inexperienced Obi-Wan. Also, the period of time during which the Clone Wars took place, or the twenty years between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.
There are some problems with the first two options. The period before the events in Episode I doesn’t really pack too much excitement. Nothing very important happened during that time. It was a period of peace before problems started for the Jedi Order. Also, the Clone Wars era would mean an already familiar story, considering that the animated series have covered almost everything from that era.
So, the only believable option remains the twenty-years period until the first Star Wars movie begins and introduces us to Luke and Leia. During this time, Obi-Wan would be hiding away on Tatooine and the Empire would rise to power in the entire galaxy.
Obi-Wan had a lot of adventures during his life, and some of them are presented in various comic books. It remains to be seen what is going to happen with this very anticipated movie.
