    Default Obi-Wan coming to Disney+

    So it looks like that although the "Anthology" movies may sadly be dead after Solo under performed, the ideas themselves are still alive and kicking...only this time as shows on Disney's new streaming service, which is more than fine with me.

    I'm kind of curious what direction they'll take the series. Have it deal with his desert exile? Curiously I think MANDALORIAN is also partially set on Tatooine, as some of the concept art and sets have shown what looks like the Mos Eisley cantina and a dewback (although I suppose this could be another desert world)

    Granted, the Disney material so far have mostly stayed off of Tatooine apart from the new EU stuff like Rebels and the comics. We've gotten similar desert planets (Jakku, Jedha and whatever's in Rise of Skywalker) but it seems the live action stuff has pretty much stayed well away from it. So maybe it's time to revisit the 'core' of the saga once again.

    I would like planned anthology movies adapted into these, though I do hope they try and avoid too many set between III and IV. A young Qui Gon and Dooku series or something with Poe and Finn world be awesome...

    I'm hoping for something like a sci-fi take on True Grit or The Searchers only with an aging Obi-Wan as the reluctant "law-man".

    I would like it to be after Revenge of the Sith, but I think I'd be more excited to see something during the Clone Wars given that FX are so much better these days, and it would allow us to see some characters come back like Anakin and Commander Cody. Maybe his time in hiding inter-cut with episodes from the Clone Wars.

    Regardless I'm very interested in this.

    Confirmed. Four hours long. Set eleven years before ANH. (Kid Luke?) Shooting starts next year so probably a late 2020 or early 2021 release date.

    Ewan also recently confirmed that there were plans for a movie-confirming all those rumors a while back pretty much-but it was turned into the Disney+ mini instead. I'm guessing that's due to SOLO not doing great.

    So those who wanted to take down Disney over The Last Jedi caused Disney to abandon the film plans for the shit you actually wanted to see.

    Thanks guys /s

    At least Obi-wan gets his own series.

    I don't think those cyberbullies had anywhere near enough clout to do that.

    Wonder how it'll affect the comics and TV shows that dealt with that era.
