Rumor of the day - an Obi-Wan movie

Recently a poll on on the official Star Wars website, fans voted Obi Wan Kenobi the most popular character over the likes of Han Solo, Darth Vader, Boba Fett and even Yoda. Which may seem odd to us older folks who grew up with the first trilogy, but the younger generation has grown up with the Clone Wars saga where Kenobi is a central character.

Now this would actually get me even more excited than eps7-9, given that Obi's my personal favorite character, a series of Obi-Wan franchise films chronicling the period post-RotJ, with Obi learning to "ghost" himself, ensuring that young Luke is safe, keeping tabs on Vader, etc. would be awesome. 

This would also explain why the recent "Kenobi" novel, a fairly enjoyable read, was made non-canon, so that it wouldn't limit a future film featuring Obi.

I would go for an Obi-Wan movie.  However, I would prefer it to be pre-Episode 3. (Maybe during the clone wars, or adventures between Episodes 1 and 2) so that we get to see Jedi skills.  He couldn't really be running around saving people and flashing his Jedi skills during the dark times.  Not that I wouldn't watch one in that time period, either - it could make for a good story.  I just love to see Jedi in action, and to see the Clone Wars in a grittier way, with a less kid-friendly director who can hopefully do dialogue better and get non-wooden performances from actors, would be awesome.  :P
