With Solo’s less than impressive box office performance, the fate of the future Star Wars Story films is in limbo but a new report that is out is suggesting that at least one of the anthology movies might not have a widescreen release.
Now, according to this new report by The Playlist, the Obi-Wan Kenobi film might actually get held and could possibly be shown on Disney’s untitled streaming service. The Playlist did stick this in the “hard rumor” category, because no official confirmation was given but for Lucasfilm to hold off on releasing the Kenobi film in a big widescreen release, and just have it released on the Disney Streaming Service doesn’t seem like it would make much sense.
However, this could be a good thing. I’m only saying it could be a good thing because not having this film do a widescreen release, it could go one out of two ways. Either, Lucasfilm and Kathleen Kennedy will take a risk and have the film premiere on the streaming service along with the confirmed Star Wars Live-Action TV series. Or on the other hand, Lucasfilm could, and this might end up happening, Lucasfilm could hold off on the movie, and possibly wait until after Episode XI is released to announce it.
As far as we know, they haven’t announced who is directing it, and if Ewan McGregor will be coming back as Kenobi. I do have high hopes for the film, and I’m pretty sure we will get Ewan McGregor back as Obi-Wan Kenobi.
