Disney being on edge about the viability of Star Wars spin-offs after Solo bombing + Disney not (ever?) having a middle-aged man in the leading role in its films -> Disney+ streaming platform = the perfect place for this
I love how McGregor got by far the best reaction on the panel. One can't help but to think that they could have actually made it work on the big screen.
Putting it on the big screen easily could have worked for audiences. A mature and slow-paced Logan-style character study about Obi-Wan on Tatooine could have been Disney's hidden gem to prove themselves using boldness and creativity with the characters. I just feel it doesn't work for Disney because it's a "risk." Shame we'll only see it on small screens, but I'd take that over nothing and maybe it being on Disney+ will allow it to still be what we all wanted.
