Obi-Wan Kenobi (Master to Anakin Skywalker), will reportedly have a spin off film. According to the “This Is Madness: The Star Wars Character Tournament” posted by Star Wars on its official Web site, Obi-Wan Kenobi was voted as the most popular “Star Wars” character . He beats other characters such as Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. This is why, reportedly, the spin-off film was planned.

A source, code-named “Ewok Massacre” claims:

“Obi-Wan Kenobi – I’ve heard from quite a few people now that an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is in the works. For the spin-off movies they were initially going to stay away from any Jedi or Sith characters. But I’m hearing now that because of the popularity of Obi-Wan (fans recently voting for him on the official website etc) that an art team is now working with a writer on concepts for an Obi-Wan movie.”

Although Disney has yet to make an official announcement, the source from has been right before. According to the site, he was the first to reveal, before any official announcement was made, the time setting Star Wars Episode VII would take place in.

And as if we needed persuading, MTV has released “6 Reason an Obi-Wan ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Should Happen” here.
