Although Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens is due out later this year, there is still a lot of mystery surrounding the wider Disney-owned Star Wars franchise. Take for example, the enigmatic Star Wars spin-off or 'Anthology' movies.

So far, we know there will be four such movies, and we currently know for sure what two of them will be about. The first, titled Rogue One, is a 'gritty war movie' which shows a team of rebels stealing the Death Star plans, while the other is a Han Solo origin story. This leaves two more potential spin-offs.

A Boba Fett solo movie is heavily rumored, while Obi Wan Kenobi is another name that has been banded around by fans. Currently, a Boba Fett movie seems to be practically confirmed (although, importantly, not yet by Disney) , but an Obi Wan spin-off certainly isn't out of the question. In fact, there's already a poster out there... kind of. Redditor TheReginator recently posted a fan made poster of Ewan McGregor as Obi Wan in his own movie. Check it out below:

If there is an Obi Wan Kenobi spin-off movie, Ewan McGregor certainly wants to be involved. The star, who played Obi Wan in the prequel trilogy, told the Edinburgh FilM Festival last month:

"I’d be happy to do the story from episodes three where I finish up and Alec Guinness starts."

In fact, back in 2013, he told MTV he had been pitching that very idea to studios. Did he manage to persuade the Disney execs people want more Obi Wan? Well, I guess we'll know when we finally find out what that final Star Wars Anthology movie really is.
