Rumor: Obi-Wan/Maul Spinoff Film Being Considered

Posted by Eric on March 28, 2013 at 07:24 PM CST

The good folks over at Cosmic Book News have brought us another Star Wars movie rumor, this time regarding a possible spinoff film.

Our source notes that the Lucasfilm friend who provided the information said the idea is being tossed around.

* 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.

Cosmic Book News' last rumor was about Episode VII starring a disciple of Palpatine. When I covered this story for Suvudu, I wrote that "it sounds like someone at Cosmic Book News has been filling out Star Wars movie synopsis Mad Libs after reading post-Episode VI Expanded Universe novels." Now, seeing their Obi-Wan vs. Maul spinoff rumor, I can't help but think that the same thing has happened again. And this time, I know exactly which non-canon comic Cosmic Book News could be poaching.

As always, here's your disclaimer to grab a hefty grain of salt as you digest this rumor.
