Our pals Jimmy and Jason over at Rebel Force Radio welcomed guest Anthony Breznican of EW and touched a number of topics during the course of their chat, but one topic in particular has struck a chord. Could Obi-Wan be making a future appearance in a saga episode? We still have episodes 8 and 9 to come, with the likelihood being that a further trilogy will follow. After all, at various times Lucas himself pointed to a 12 episode saga.
EW‘s Anthony Breznican went on record on the “Rebel Force Radio” podcast this weekend with an intriguing reason we’ll label as rumor, as it doesn’t come with any official source and certainly no official confirmation from Lucasfilm.
“I have heard rumors that the one reason they haven’t moved sooner on Obi-Wan is that they’re not done with Obi-Wan quite yet in the Saga films,” he said. “So I wouldn’t be surprised to see an Obi-Wan [solo film] happen beyond Episode IX.”
