    Rogue One has it underneath too.

    I'm sceptical too, but one can hope!

    Someone must have been listening when I said this :)

    As for an Obi movie... hmm. McGregor's impersonation never really sat right with me. As one of the triumvirate of main characters in the prequels, he's one third of the reason those movies didn't work. I guess he's a few years closer to Alec Guinness' age though, so maybe.

    I thought McGregor's "impersonation" was one of the best things about the prequels! Once again, we're poles apart you and I. :D

    If he gets a decent script (something that calls for more than: "you wont get away this time"), and works opposite actors he has chemistry with, then maybe I'll reconsider.

    Or they could just get Chris Pratt in the role :p.

    and work with a proper director/script/set this time round.

    I am definitely psyched more for an Obi-Wan movie than a Solo movie. I though McGregor was one of the prequel success stories so more of him as Obi-Wan is fine with me. Hope it is true and will be confirmed soon.

    He should have quit while he was a head.

    Really? Surely we've already seen Obi Wan's greatest hits in the six films?

    He was immensely boring as a Padawan, and he was a hermit in between epsidoes 3 & 4. Apart from occasional trips to the Mos Eisley post office, I can't imagine he got up to much :)

    Well we didn't really see that much of him in 5 and 6 and I can't imagine he sat around like a hermit for 16 to 18 years. Could also show more of him between 1 and 2 or 2 and 3.

    I thought it might have been, as 'The Balance Of The Force' is the sort of unwieldy title that only a fanboy could come up with.

    Kenneth Branagh was offered the part wasn't he? Can't help but wonder whether having a director on set might've helped...

    I still think the originals allude to another meeting between Obi-Wan and Vader - "Obi-Wan once thought as you do". But then Lucas pretty much ignores that in the prequels.

    So many lines in the originals no longer make sense in the light of the prequels. But perhaps that's fertile terrain for Disney to explore.

    Was just thinking yesterday that Branagh would still be a great Obi Wan should he ever decide to get back in front of the camera.

    Well true, Disney could just decide to ignore Lucas and go back to what he (and others) wrote in the first place.

    I know what people are saying about saturation with all these films but personally I can't wait to see them.

    I think its just the rapid-fire rate of them, and having them all lined up before us in an embarrassment of riches. I find it hard to enthuse about them all at once and can't yet see beyond Episode 7. But given what they've done for Marvel, I have confidence that Disney will achieve more hits than misses. Only five and a bit months to go!

    Didn't like McGregor in Phantom Menace but loved him by the end of Revenge of the Sith so he's my only choice for the role really

    Others? What others?

    The Clone Wars addressed the issue of Syfo Dias - something which was meant to be dealt with in episode three - so I don't see why this Obi-wan film couldn't address that line about "Obi-wan once thought as you do" by having the two characters meet up once more. After all, what's a Star Wars film without a lightsabre duel? And I really think it might make for more drama than, say, Obi-wan lopping limbs off Jawas and Tusken Raiders.

    Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz helped him re-write one of the later drafts. And of course Laurence Kasdan for Empire. You say others like you're surprised?

    Thinking about it, I'm not sure I buy another Vader/ Obi Wan encounter. Vader clearly says "when I left you I was but a learner"- referring presumably to his pre-suit, still-learning-from-Kenobi self.

    Well he still had a master when he met Obi-Wan again the big phoney. But he was a learner when he chose the 'dark path' so who's to say he wasn't still a learner when they cross paths again?

    I just find it hard to believe given what Ob-Wan did to him and given how he basically becomes the Jedi hunter in chief that he didn't track him down again, or at least cross paths at some point. It's all pretty contradictory and then made even more so by the prequel films.

    That's because I am. See, I always thought that Lucas had written the story.

    There's nineteen years between the prequels and the originals. Vader and Obi-wan could have met again during that time - nothing in the prequels contradicts this.

    As for Vader calling himself "the master" in A New Hope, that's just simple conceit on his part. I always saw it as such, anyway.

    Well he outlined the whole trilogy story but he had help with dialogue and he had Kasdan come on board for Empire, he ran ideas past his peers (e.g. Coppola). And on set some of the dialogue changed in Star Wars, Guinness struggled with it and his assistant helped him. This is hardly new news.
