The force is strong with Disney.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Lucasfilm is in the early stages of planning a stand-alone Obi-Wan Kenobi movie.

They are talking to Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry to direct. Daldry is best known for directing such serious dramas as The Hours and The Reader and he’s also the executive producer of the Netflix drama, The Crown. So far, nothing is final, but this Obi-Wan movie would be a continuation of Star Wars projects that live outside of the original trilogies – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the upcoming Ron Howard-directed Han Solo movie are such projects. No word yet if Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as the Jedi master.
I, of course, love Star Wars and the fact that Luscasfilm is talking with Daldry – I’m excited to see what kind of Star Wars story he would tell!0
