The Star Wars franchise is one of the most popular of all time, and we now know what the next spin-off from the originals will be.
While we await the Han Solo film, due out sometime in 2018, news has come that another iconic Star Wars character’s backstory will be told… Obi-Wan Kenobi. More spinoffs are rumored for release, including a film about Boba Fett, Yoda, and others.
In the past, the character has been played by Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.
On Wednesday, Ron Howard, director of the as-yet-untitled Han Solo film, tweeted a photo from the set of the much-anticipated film captioned, “The Empire Looms Large.” The date of release for that movie is set for May 25, 2018.
