According to a source over at Cosmic Book News, Lucasfilm is considering a Star Wars spinoff film set between Episodes III and IV that deals with Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and a 5-year old Luke Skywalker on Tatooine.

– Set between Star Wars Episode III and Episode IV.

– Said to feature Ewan McGregor reprising the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi in his exile on Tatooine.

– The villain? Darth Maul hunting down his nemesis with a possible plot point involving a 5-year-old Luke Skywalker somehow tied into the story possibly as bait for Obi-Wan.

As with all rumors, nothing is cemented in stone until we get confirmation from an official Disney/Lucasfilm source.

Regardless of it being official or not at this point, this does sound like a VERY exciting spinoff direction to head in!
