‘Kenobi: A Star Wars Story’ teaser imagines a solo movie starring Jedi

There’s been talk of an Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff movie for quite a while now, and although Disney and Lucasfilm don’t seem too keen to move in that direction, that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating about the possibilities of a solo adventure featuring Anakin Skywalker’s famous mentor.

One fan went so far as to create a faux teaser for Kenobi: A Star Wars Story a nonexistent solo film featuring Ewan McGregor as Kenobi. In It, he wanders the deserts of Tatooine and keeps watch over Luke Skywalker from afar.

Assembled with clips from various Star Wars movies and other films, Kenobi is a surprisingly good trailer for a film that doesn’t — and likely won’t ever — exist. Along with sampling from Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, the film also features a lot of McGregor from the 2015 film Last Days in the Desert, in which he played Jesus Christ.

The teaser for Kenobi: A Star Wars Story was created by Canadian filmmaker Rich Williamson, and uploaded to Vimeo. In response to a comment on the video, Williamson explained why he made it and what he hopes to see from the Star Wars “anthology” films like the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

“I’d love if Star Wars started doing different genres, especially with the ‘Star Wars Story’ films,” he wrote. “One film might be a heist movie, one a horror, this one [is] more of a meditative Western. Shake it up.”

So far, the only two Star Wars anthology films that have been officially confirmed are this year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the upcoming, still-untitled Han Solo movie (possibly titled Han Solo: A Star Wars Story?) that will explore the early years of the famous smuggler and his Wookiee co-pilot. Alden Ehrenreich will play the young Han Solo in that film, which hits theaters in 2018. A solo film featuring the bounty hunter Boba Fett has also been rumored as a potential anthology installment down the road.
