Obi-Wan Movie Planning 2019 Shoot in Ireland, Is George Lucas Directing?

George Lucas GETTY • LUCASFILMGeorge Lucas is allegedly giving his approval to the Han Solo film

The rumor mill apparently began to swirl at the end of a year ago because George Lucas himself was in town, and people were wondering what the Star Wars creator was up to.

While Lucasfilm is now gearing up for the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, a lot of fans have been clamoring for the announcement of an Obi-Wan-centric anthology film.

With no Star Wars now on the schedule for 2020 and beyond, though several projects have been announced, it makes sense that Lucasfilm is planning something to be filming by 2019, though if the studio is already deciding where it wants to film things, then the project would seem to be further along than we thought. Well, it's reportedly the Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff.

Talk about an Obi-Wan movie has been prevalent for some time, and while the film hasn't been officially announced by Lucasfilm, it is suspected that this will be the next anthology movie from the studio. Lucas was given a tour of Paint Hall Studios, with the insider adding, "It was all very low key, only a few people knew that the old guy walking round the set was George Lucas". The three installments released so far have grossed over $4 billion at the worldwide box office, and Solo: A Star Wars Story is poised to become another hit. An unnamed source confirmed to the paper that Star Wars was planning to shoot there either later this year or early next year, though the source does not mention the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie by name, just the franchise.

Belfast will be the centre of the Star Wars universe when the latest spin-off from the movie franchise is filmed there in 2019. For example, Lucas really isn't a part of the Star Wars machine anymore, so it's odd that he'd be scouting locations.

Stephen Daltry, of Billy Elliot fame has been rumoured to direct, while Ewan McGregor, who played Obi Wan in the prequels, has repeatedly expressed interest in returning to the role.

On the other hand, Pinewood Studios was used before the current explosion of Star Wars movies in development - in addition to the mainline episodes, Disney has commissioned The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson to helm a separate series, is making a bunch of spinoffs films (Solo, starring Emilia Clarke, is out in May), and even tapped Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss to make their own Star Wars movies. Fortunately, that seems to have changed today, because a new rumor suggests that Disney is moving forward with the standalone prequel.
