In keeping with the spirit of Kurosawa providing the template for SW and several classic Westerns, I'd like this to be a loose remake of Sanjuro, with Joel Edgerton!Owen Lars being the captured dude, and Obi-Wan teaming up with the other moisture farmers against Jabba's hoodlums and the Imperial prefect.
According to a newly released production bulletin -- obtained by TMZ -- Disney's next foray into their spin-off series appears to be called "Obi-Wan: A Star Wars Story," with a working title of "Joshua Tree." "Return of the Jedi" also used a code name ... "Blue Harvest."
The synopsis reads as follows :
Obi-Wan is on Tatooine being an elusive hermit and stuff, but secretly watches over an infant Luke Skywalker, whom he delivered to his uncle, Owen. Tensions between the local farmers and a tribe of Sand People -- headed by a ruthless war chief -- eventually brings Obi outta hiding ... and into Jedi kickass mode. Scene.
About the director and production start :
The bulletin lists Stephen Daldry as the director -- he'd been rumored to be in talks for the film, and now it looks like he's attached.
this is the only spinoff that doesn't feel shoehorned (spicy take: even less than the current trilogy lol). the problem is it has to be a small scale film but yo ass know we gettin some space battles for no reason
