Kenobi: A Star Wars Story Fan Trailer Offers Up Plenty of Reasons for a Standalone McGregor Film

Disney is all about maximizing its Star Wars license, which is why we are getting standalone films for Rogue One and Han Solo. Another character that could benefit from a standalone Star Wars story is Obi-Wan Kenobi, who played a major role in the shaping of the Skywalker Force dynasty and galactic politics. After Revenge of the Sith we really don’t know what he got into outside of hanging out on Tatooine and waiting for Luke to realize that moisture farming is for the birds.

Well, Rich Williamson took it upon himself to show the world that a standalone Obi-Wan film could work by mashing together some clips from Ewan McGregor’s Jesus movie (who even knew that he played Christ) with clips from the prequels, and quite frankly it works very well. It gets a bit janky with some of the VFX, but overall it offers up an interesting take on Obi-Wan’s life on Tatooine.

Head on up above to see it for yourself. Would you watch a standalone Obi-Wan flick? Leave your comments below to let us know.
