"I'll stay as long as it takes. Forever. To witness the end.”
There have been a lot of rumors surrounding Lucasfilm and Disney wanting to make a standalone Star Wars trilogy based on Obi-Wan Kenobi and his time between Star Wars Episode III and Episode IV. Those rumors included the possible return of Ewan McGregor in the role, which would be awesome! The fans would love to see these movies happen, and I hope that the executives at Lucasfilm are smart enough to eventually do it.
While we wait to see what happens, a fan by the name of Rich Williamson has edited together a great little fan trailer for a film giving us a glimpse at what Kenobi’s life might have been like after the events of Revenge of the Sith. The Jedi master is living in exile on Tatooine and is tortured by what he went through as he watches over Luke Skywalker.
Most of the footage in the trailer comes from one of McGregor’s most recent films, Last Days in the Desert, in which he played Jesus Christ during his 40 days in the wilderness. The creator of the video had this to say:
"I'd love if Star Wars started doing different genres, especially with the Star Wars Story films. One film might be a heist movie, one a horror, this one more of a meditative Western. Shake it up.”
