Star Wars: Rian Johnson Would Love to See An Obi-Wan Movie, Not Direct It

Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has said that while he'd love to see an Obi-Wan Kenobi film on-screen, he has no interest in directing it.

In a recent interview with Collider, the subject of an Obi-Wan movie, which is reportedly being eyed for production from Disney and Lucasfilm for 2019, came up. Johnson expressed his excitement for a film based on the Jedi Master, but just not from him. When asked if he'd be up for it, he responded, "In seeing it? Sure, I'll watch that movie in a heartbeat."

"Right now, I'm just focused on the new trilogy. Isn't that enough? God, man, I'd love to see that movie," he reiterated, after referencing the new Star Wars trilogy he's set to direct which will veer away from the Skywalker saga we know so far. In the past, Johnson toyed with using Obi-Wan in The Last Jedi as a Force Ghost, but ended up using Yoda instead to teach Luke Skywalker one final lesson.

Ewan McGregor, who played the character in the prequel trilogy, has said that he'd love to reprise the role, and with anthology films such as Rogue One and Solo: A Star Wars Story being made, fans are still holding out hope that Obi-Wan will eventually get his own solo outing.
