    Looks like Disney is going full Avengers with their Star Wars investment...

    “First up, they are not talking about an Obi-Wan spin-off movie but a trilogy of Obi-Wan movies. I need to stress that these movies are not connected. They aren’t part of a story arc but three separate Obi-Wan adventures set between Episodes III and IV.”



    “It seems like the three movie ideas are as follows: One set completely on Tatooine and two where Obi-Wan travels elsewhere in the Galaxy.”

    “Qui-Gon Jinn is very much present in these stories. So too is Owen Lars. Several characters from the Clone Wars TV show would make an appearance. There would be flashbacks to Obi Wan fighting in the Clone Wars.”

    I'm all for it if they do a hard reboot and keep Ewan McGregor the fuck away from the role.

    In the grand scheme of things, probably not.

    But he may suffer from a "guilt by association" that most fans of the original three Star Wars movies will be unable to overcome.

    Exactly, he was pretty much the best thing in I, II and III...

    For most fans of the original Star Wars movies, I'd say that would be considered the ultimate case of damning with faint praise.

    I could tell you, for example, that Randy Quaid was the best part of Caddyshack 2. But that damn sure doesn't mean I'm looking forward to seeing him star in a series of Caddyshack offshoots. ;)

    Listen dude I know the new Star Wars movies sucked everyone knows this but I was just refuting yet another stupid post from @Maddysmom . That dude has the worst takes on everything probably because he visits the "deep" web too much

    I don't hate ep 1,2 and 3, but honestly the Clone Wars cartoon did a better job of perpetuating the mythos than any of those movies did.

    I loved Rebels the other night btw.
