Just give Ewan McGregor a gray beard and he should look similar to how he was drawn in Rebels.

I’d be prepared for a CGI Alec Guinness in the last scene though. I would love that.

CGI Alec Guinness is out walking and just as he tops the next hill, there he sees Luke, R2, and 3PO. He prepares to make the Krayt Dragon call…and cut. The End.

This had better be a Yojimbo-Seven Samurai/A Fistful of Dollars-Magnificent Seven mashup where Kenobi plays Tatooine’s criminal elements off of each other in order to protect some innocent moisture farmers.

Make it a full spaghetti western samurai movie with Kenobi as a lost warrior saving people from a tyrant.

Pleased to hear that Ewan may get another crack at the character, and it might be kinda neat to see that kind of storyline play out in a ‘Star Warsy’ setting.


It got me thinking about some of the stuff referenced in ANH that the makers could end up including in this prequel movie, if it’s solely set on Tattooine -

TUSKEN RAIDERS! - Older Ben is aware of the Sand People’s ways - so some of them might feature giving him a hard time in some way as he establishes his homestead…before he ends up giving them a lesson in neighbourly manners.

KRAYT DRAGON! - Older Ben knows how to mimic one, so it (or they?) might feature in some way too. (plenty of scope for the makers to include some sort of CGI’d monster shenanigans, but will they remix it again? - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSDgBbX1XTY)

JAWAS! - I’ll be surprised if we don’t see at least one of the little rascals in this.

MOS EISLEY! - Older Ben is aware it’s a hive of scum and villainy - so it might feature as a setting for various hi-jinks he’s previously been involved in there (this could easily be a backdrop for him sorting out a local scumbag or two who are harassing the lives of some locals he defends - the villains of the peace being some of Jabba’s associates perhaps?)

THE LOCAL CRIMELORD, JABBA HIMSELF! - Nothing to stop the makers actually including the big guy somewhere in this, if the storyline DOES involve Kenobi tackling some of his associates along the way. (the fact that the cocky pilot he commissioned to fly him and Luke to safety at a future date ALSO turned out to have had dealings with Jabba too, is merely a ‘coincidence’ that is never mentioned onscreen in ANH. Never tell me the odds!) However, although we’ve previously focused on Jabba in this saga, the makers could involve a DIFFERENT ‘Hutt’ as a protagonist in this I guess.

THE CANTINA! - Older Ben seems to know his way around the place, and certainly seemed comfortable enough at the club bar featured in the (shudder) AOTC prequel. So the makers could easily have Kenobi frequenting the same one with a whole new slew of CGI’d ne’er-do-wells amongst the regulars. (just hope whatever band is booked sounds good…)

ANAKIN’S LIGHTSABER! - If we see Kenobi in his abode during this at some point, then a wistful look at it is obligotary before he stashes it back in his trunk.

QUI-GON’S ‘FORCE GHOST’! - a possible brief appearance of Liam Neeson might be in order to show he carried out Yoda’s wishes for his continued training. (or at least, a ‘voiceover’)

TATTOOINE’S TWIN SUNS! - Surely we’re bound to get a decent sunset or sunrise shot featuring them during this, no matter what.

Finally, Kenobi’s gotta get around the area somehow. While I’d be happy to have him be seen wandering on foot into whatever adventure he finds himself in, we might see the return of an EOPIE steed - let’s just hope it’s not as ill-mannered as the one seen at the PHANTOM MENACE pod race! On the other hand he may end up with a SPEEDER of some sort in this…and it just ended up as an offscreen rusting pile of junk hidden behind his abode, by the time Luke turned up in his.

Time will tell, but there’s certainly scope for quite a few…er…‘callbacks’ in this.

I really do not want to see another Youjinbou or Seven Samurai remake.

No problem. If it turns out to be that, you can just avoid your local multiplex.

Can you outline what kinda storyline you would want to see?

As I said, new storylines that involve new characters and explore new aspects. There are many interesting aspects that have not been explored yet within the established universe. For example, a story from the Empire’s perspective is just one of many. The options here are almost limitless. This could all be done within the OT timeline if they want to play it safe. So far R1 has been the only thing remotely new.

Ah, I see. I meant in the context of this thread’s topic concerning a KENOBI movie.

As long as it doesn’t end up with him popping in for weekly baby visits and glasses of hot blue milk with Beru behind Owen’s back, then I’m good.

I don’t know what Spidey’s problem is with the first part about the beard, but I agree with his disagreement with the latter two ideas.

So far this thread can be summed up as follows:

A bunch of yaks and shills being castigated for eating the same dog food, film after film.
Their reply?
“But it’s good dog food!”

Oh well. Disney, please announce another rehash before the end of this year. How about a Bib Fortuna movie. Throw these dogs a frickin’ bone.

He sees us as unenlightened fools in Plato’s Cave, which he must rescue, as if our opinions on space adventure movies are so important as to require his correction and enlightenment.

Why isn’t it enough to just not watch it if you don’t like it? Why wish it didn’t exist so even those that enjoy it can’t watch it?

Please people. You all like Star Wars and therefore should be ashamed of yourselves.

Yes! I hate the PT and didn’t care for TFA, but I watched ESB this afternoon and, know what?
I still liked it! Can you imagine?
And guess what else? I didn’t like the PT at all, so I just don’t watch it!
Again, can you even imagine such a thing??
I must be the strangest person.

If five different studios were making one Star Wars film per year each and therefore facilitate variety and alternatives, I would agree with your sentiment. However, this is not the case. Disney is the only one making them and if they make shitty ones people end up without Star Wars. I can understand why people who like Star Wars get upset when they make shitty films.

That’s not true at all. I haven’t been crazy about Disney’s Starwars output, but I still have Star Wars.

Let me rephrase that: “Disney is the only one making them and if they make shitty ones people who want new Star Wars end up with shitty new Star Wars.”

That’s true, but I just don’t see why one can’t be happy with what they already like. If they make more of that thing and you don’t like it, no big deal, you still have the ones you love. If they make more and you do like it, then it’s just a nice bonus.
Take what you like, leave what you don’t.
The franchise doesn’t owe you anything.

Well that is one way to look at it. The other way is that if they are making new films in ones favourite franchise, one has the right to be unhappy with shitty products and express it. After all lots of people around were doing so with PT (perhaps even you were one them?).

Well, we agree with each other. you can spend your whole life bitching about dumb movies if ya wanna. Your choice. But, why would you?

I do enjoy a good laugh at the PT’s expense. Plinkett’s reviews are a riot, mainly because I agree with all of his points. But I don’t hang out where PT fans gather and preach my PT Hate as if it’s life-saving gospel while belittling anyone who disagrees. There are certainly some here who do just that with the Disney films.
