Obi-Wan Kenobi Was Almost a Movie Trilogy

Obi-Wan Kenobi writer Stuart Beattie reveals the series reused the story treatment developed when the project was still slated to go to theaters. In an interview for The Direct, Beattie also talks about how the scrapped Obi-Wan Kenobi film was initially planned as a trilogy, pointing out which plot points of the second scrapped movie could show up in a possible Season 2.

Before becoming a series, Obi-Wan Kenobi was planned as a Star Wars spinoff theatrical film. However, after Solo’s lukewarm reception, Disney decided to shelve the project. Once Disney+ was in place, and the Star Wars train started to move into new and exciting directions with the release of The Mandalorian, Obi-Wan Kenobi was also recycled into a series. Beattie was the very first writer to work on the Obi-Wan Kenobi project when it was still supposed to be a movie, which led him to be credited as a writer for Episodes 1, 2, 3, and 6 of the series. As Beattie explains, the show created, by director Deborah Chow, was based on his first story treatment, but he didn’t work directly with the Disney+ project.
