All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

ScreenRant:
2020 Star Wars Anthology Movie Will Be Decided On Next Month
Mansoor Mithaiwala wrote:Kennedy’s comments fall in-line with what she said at Star Wars Celebration 2017 last month. At that time, she was only prepared to say that the studio would be deciding on the next anthology chapter sometime this summer, but now she says that decision will happen by June. What’s more, she says that they will be deciding between two options. Rumors have suggested that the third anthology movie would be centered on Boba Fett, while fans have been clamoring for Ewan McGregor to get his own Obi-Wan Kenobi movie.

In light of the upcoming Han Solo prequel spin-off, the legendary actor revealed that he would not personally be interested in seeing a prequel story based on his iconic character given that it would most likely just be him stuck on the desert planet of Tatooine with not much else to do than moisture farm.


somebody call Terrence Malick, i think we've found his next film.

RUMOR: MR. ROBOT CREATOR MAY WRITE STAR WARS ANTHOLOGY FILM
Although there’s still little solid evidence, rumors continue to swirl about a “Star Wars” anthology film centering on Obi-Wan Kenobi.




THR AUGUST 17, 2017:
'Star Wars' Obi-Wan Kenobi Film in the Works (Exclusive)
Borys Kit wrote:Oscar-nominated filmmaker Stephen Daldry is in early talks for the film, which would center on the Jedi Master who has been played by both Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

Stephen Daldry is Star Wars’ new hope.

The Oscar-nominated director behind Billy Elliot and The Hours is in early talks to direct a Star Wars standalone movie centering on Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Sources say talks are at the earliest of stages and that the project has no script. If a deal makes, Daldry would oversee the development and writing with Lucasfilm brass. It's not known at this stage if Ewan McGregor will reprise his role.

The Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone is one of several projects being developed by Lucasfilm and Disney that fall outside the trilogies telling the saga of the Skywalker family. A Han Solo movie is now in the final stages of shooting under new director Ron Howard and Lucasfilm is also looking at movies featuring Yoda and bounty hunter Bob Fett, among others.

In the original Star Wars trilogy, Kenobi was at first a desert-dwelling and war-weary hermit who later proved to be a wise and powerful warrior, brandishing a light saber. He was briefly a mentor to a young Luke before being cut down by Darth Vader, his former pupil. Alec Guinness played Kenobi, garnering him an Oscar nomination to boot.

The character got star treatment in the George Lucas-directed prequels which told the origin of Vader and his betrayal of Kenobi and the Jedis. McGregor has said he would be open to playing the character again. Sources stress, however, that since there is no script, no actor is attached.

Daldry hails from the theater world and made his feature debut with Billy Elliot, which netted him his first directing Oscar nomination. He followed that up with searing dramas The Hours and The Reader, which also netted him directing nominations.

He most recently directed episodes of Netflix’s period drama The Crown, which put him into play in this Emmy season.

He is repped by CAA.

it's too bad Star Trek isn't doing their own standalone films, or else we'd be able to see a double feature of Solo: A Star Wars Story and Sulu: A Star Trek Story

Maybe he didn't name it, and the title was already set in stone before he came on board. Besides I like it. Sometimes for such an iconic character you do predictably name it after his name. I think it would be far too obscure and left field to call it a "Huh?" title like 'Chronicles of a Correlian' or something.

i think it's a missed opportunity. think of the all the names they must've passed on before settling on this:

The Han that Rocks the Cradle
The Han-Over
Cool Han Luke (crossover/buddy film)
Hannibal (in which we find out his full first name)
Edward Scissor Han
Han-cock (the inevitable porno version)
The Elephant Han
Shallow Han
You Don't Mess with the Solo-Han
The Han Job (either a heist film or another porno... i can't decide which)
Han Air
Less Than Solo
Solo Dark Thirty
Han of Steel
AquaHan
BatHan vs. SuperHan: Dawn of Solo


and let's not forget the sequels:

Solo 2: Electric Boogasolo
2 Han 2 Solo
Star Wars 2: The Wrath of Han

If you watch the Cornelian spaceport scene you can spot me. Right before Emilia Clarke gets caught by the Stormtroopers and Han has to go on the run in the crowd and disguise himself to flee the troopers.
