Last Jedi our ass!

It's been reported that a stand-alone Star Wars movie centering around Obi-Wan Kenobi is in the works, and it's already moving at light speed.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that there's no script for the project just yet, but Disney and Lucasfilm are already in talks with Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry to helm the space spinoff!

Daldry would oversee the development and writing if he signs on. It is not known yet if Ewan McGregor will reprise his role.

Hopefully, the production of this solo film doesn't see the same turbulence as the Han Solo movie, which earlier this year encountered a director shakeup resulting in Ron Howard stepping up for the final stages of shooting.

It also looks like Disney is just getting started milking the force. The studio has been looking at movies featuring Yoda and space bounty hunter Boba Fett. (We can't until they announce a trilogy about Princess Leia's hologram!)

As for McGregor, the actor has said he would be open to playing the Jedi again — but sources stressed that since there is no script, no actor is attached to the project just yet.

Thoughts??

Beauty And The Beast Is Beautifully Updated For Modern Audiences — But Still Isn't As Magical As The Original! Read The Review Roundup!

We're knee deep in the age of live-action Disney remakes, with the studio delivering hit-or-miss adaptations to cash in on the nostalgia cravings audiences are having these days.

Even though the trailers and music for Beauty and the Beast were beyond stunning, we still didn't want to get our hopes up that the latest version could match the magic of the Oscar-winning animated classic.

Lo and behold, critics felt the same way, noting that while the movie had many magical moments, the CG wasn't as spellbinding as the OG!

While critics were charmed by the film's modern updates — including more fleshed out characters (like Josh Gad's gay LeFou and a more feminist Belle courtesy of Emma Watson) and beautifully intricate sequences — the live action take just can't hold a candle (played by Ewan McGregor) to the animated magic Disney is known for.

Still, that doesn't mean Beauty and the Beast wasn't enjoyable (it's currently at 74% on Rotten Tomatoes) — just don't expect to fall in love as quickly as Belle falls for her furry captor!
