Obi-Wan Kenobi Was Originally Planned As A Film Trilogy

Prior to Obi-Wan Kenobi ended up being a tv collection, it was conceived as a trilogy of films according to the initial writer of the job. Obi-Wan Kenobi just recently ended its six-episode run, which saw Ewan McGregor reprise his function as the titular Jedi master. The collection was a big hit for Disney+ as it had the largest premiere of any type of collection on the streaming platform.

Obi-Wan Kenobi initially was readied to be a feature film. In 2017 Stephen Daldry was set to route Obi-Wan Kenobi as a flick with screenwriter Hossein Amini readied to pen the manuscript. It was simply among lots of organized offshoots based upon popular Star Wars characters like an intended Boba Fett movie from James Mangold and the then-yet-to-be-released Solo: A Star Wars Story. Nevertheless, after the disappointing ticket office returns for Solo, Lucasfilm altered their plans and also revamped both Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi into streaming series.

In an unique interview with TheDirect, author Stuart Beattie (Collateral) reveals that the initial plan was for Obi-Wan Kenobi to be a trilogy of films. Beattie reveals he initially pitched Obi-Wan Kenobi in 2016, an entire year prior to Daldry and Amini were revealed on the project as well as that composed a complete manuscript for the Obi-Wan Kenobi feature film, and also because the collection was based on his script he received a writing debt on Episodes 1, 2, 3, as well as 6 of the series also though he had no direct participation in the series.

When I pitched my Obi-Wan story to Lucasfilm, I stated, ‘There’s in fact three stories here. And also one of the most effective as well as probably the most effective minute in all of Obi-Wan’s story is that moment where he compromises himself in A New Hope. And obtain him to that factor where Obi Wan has actually accepted the concept that he’s going to pass away, as well as that he’s going to die voluntarily at a critical minute, as well as you will certainly recognize when that minute offers itself.
