This past week, Lucasfilm CEO Kathleen Kennedy revealed that Disney may announce the next Star Wars anthology movie this summer. "I think we’re getting close," she told MTV. "My hope would be [to announce] sometime around the summer. I never want to predict the creative process because it is its own thing, so we’re in the midst of those discussions right now."
Rumors have been floating around for quite some time now that the Mouse House is planning a film centred around Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, but there has been no official confirmation on this being the case. Still, Ewan McGregor says he's up for it once the studio decides to do it.
"There’s no official offer, and I haven’t met them about it or anything," McGregor tells Entertainment Weekly. "But I’ve always said that I’d be happy to do it if they wanted to do it. It would be a good segue between the last episode of the prequels and the new episodes. I think they’ve got films to make until the 2020s, so I don’t think it’s going to happen soon if it happens at all."
As the actor mentions above, Disney has Star Wars movies planned right up to 2020, but it's never too early to announce a new one. Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives on December 15th with the Han Solo movie scheduled to arrive on the big screen on May 25th, 2018 and Colin Trevorrow's Star Wars: Episode IX the following year.
Disney seems to be looking for a new anthology movie for 2020, so perhaps that'll be when we finally see this long rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi movie.
And we'd be just fine with that.
