From ashes to ashes, from dust to dust, we return now Obi-Wan Kenobi: The Obi-Wan Story on the earth’s crust.

Nearly four years after the box office bomb known as single Deleted unread library star Wars Stories and sources revealed the first victims of the identified blast. before it is a file Disney + . seriesAnd the Obi-Wan Kenobi A proposed crossover trilogy was in development when single It exploded, most likely, due to a coaxium leak.

Talking to directStuart Petty Obi Wan Kenobi So said the screenwriter of the film series who received writing credits for the recently concluded TV series single was the decisive factor in taking Obi Wan From the big screen to the small screen.

“she was single That changed the direction of the system,” Betty said. “I like it single, personally, but she didn’t make a lot of money… We definitely had a crush. Devastating, utterly destructive. But, that’s business, you know, the highs and lows. I’m glad it was made. I’m glad the show was made. I am proud of my story. I’m glad my characters have all gone through it. And I’m glad I got credit for that. I wish they would be able to make my films.”

single It reportedly needed to make over $500 million just to break even, but it grossed nearly $393 million at the worldwide box office, a disappointing total for this director. Ron Howard later blamed Internet trolls.

Beattie’s description of an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie trilogy certainly sounds a little more cohesive than Kenobi’s Adventures In Babysitting. The script went through significant growing pains, apparently. When Disney turned the movie into a TV series, the show stretched Beattie’s proposed two-hour movie into a six-hour miniseries. “I wrote the film that they based the show on,” Beattie said. “I spent like a year-and-a-half working on it. And then, when the decision was made not to make any more spin-off films after Solo came out, I left the project and went on to other things. Joby [Harold] He came and took my texts and turned them from two hours to six. Therefore, I did not work with them. Eyal, I just got credit for the episodes because they were all my stuff.”

Ewan McGregor was “on board” in the trilogy. “It’s a great story to tell, isn’t it? She’s a proper character and Ewan is so great at that. Which is the perfect age, everything.”

Beattie said the trilogy would have followed Kenobi during three periods of his life. His original plan of “three stories” followed “three different developments” and showed the character’s transformation from prequel Obi-Wan to Ben Kenobi first-time viewers in 1977. “The first movie was the show’s first, which was, ‘A surrender to the will of the Force.'” Transfer your will, surrender to your will. Leave the child alone.”

The second movie, which Betty explained, would have brought fans closer to Kenobi New hope The sacrifice, which he considered “perhaps the most powerful moment in every Obi-Wan story.” As he points out, it’s a “very surprising” decision made by Obi-Wan, and Betty wanted to research how the character went from “fighting a man, to seeing Luke and going, ‘I’m going to die’.”

Follow my house:

It’s one of those universal things that we all struggle with, to come to terms with our own mortality. So, that was the second step of evolution for me, as Obi-Wan now has to come to terms with his death, somehow in a prophecy, or Qui-Gon tells him, “There will come a moment where you’ll have to sacrifice yourself for good,” and then [Obi-Wan] Like “What? No, no, no, no, I’m here to help… I can’t, no. And carry him to that point where Obi-Wan accepted the idea that he was going to die, that he would die voluntarily at a crucial moment, and you would know when that moment would come. So when That moment comes [A New Hope], you understand. He realizes that he has already been on this journey, and is waiting for this moment, that way he can do it easily. to do this [sacrifice], and died. So for me this was the second development, the second movie, and the second story. So for me, if I have anything to do with season two of Obi Wan, that’s the character development I’m going to do. This, to me, is really interesting. And as I said, global.

Has anyone in history star Wars Fandom wondered why Obi-Wan sacrificed himself to save Luke? It sure was logical enough for six-year-olds in 1977. It’s another example of that star Wars An instinct to fill in every rift that George Lucas has missed in his efforts to create a fun and romantic space adventure for kids. If there is a second season of Obi-Wan KenobiMaybe they can research how Obi-Wan learned the phrase “hello there.”
