I am not a prequel hater and honestly love George Lucas and everything Star Wars, but must admit that I feel having Han not shoot first changes his entire character arc if not the movie (or the entire trilogy!) as a whole.
During a video interview at a press event for his new film Jack the Giant Slayer, Ewan McGregor told MTV that he would be interested in playing Obi-Wan Kenobi in a Star Wars spinoff movie. He cited the possibility of filling in the gap between his last movie, Episode III, and the appearance of Alec Guinness' older Kenobi in Episode IV.
"That might be my window, there, to tell that story," McGregor said. "I don't know what he did in the desert. We could make up some stuff."
Whatever the story might be, McGregor definitely seemed up to the task. "I'd be up for it," he said.

I have a comic book podcast, my name is Luro on it. Please listen for the good of mankind.
A movie about Obi-Wan's time watching over Luke Skywalker from afar, sounds kind of boring. They could maybe mine something out of that, like, it's the story of the time someone almost found out about Luke, or he helps the Lars' out with something, but...I don't really know about that.
At this point you two should just put eachother on ignore.
This is exciting. I've loved Star Wars since I was 9 years old. The only prequel movie I liked was AOTC, but I still look forward to more Star Wars movies.
BTW, what's this I heard about Ford, Hamill and Fischer saying they're happy that "They'll focus on the kids"? I hope it's not what I think it says.

No, it's not. It means that Han is intending to kill Greedo since the blast is not set on stun. It may make Han seem less coldblooded, but he's every bit as much since Lucas didn't cut that part out.Originally Posted by Simbob4000
It only helps if all you think there is to Fett is that. The general audience wasn't concerned about Fett's identity and backstory. Only the fans who obsessed about it to the point that they made it a much bigger deal than it needed to be, with several people being writers who wrote stories about it. Hell, prior to the PT, Fett's origin was laid out in "Last One Standing" and "The Bounty Hunters War Trilogy".What the fuck are you talking about? Having some mystery to the character isn't going to stop them from having a good story, in fact, it could help.
It means what Lucas said back in 76 to Hamill, that eventually the story would shift to their offspring and that Luke would pass on his Lightsaber like Excalibur. Which was also the intent behind "Young Jedi Knights" and "Junior Jedi Knights". The actual characters will probably be different, but the basics will still apply.Originally Posted by Frank
And please tell me you don't think what you do because of the stun thing you said. Is his blaster having a stun setting something that ever comes up in the movie? Why are you assuming his blaster can do that?
What was his origin in those stories? Were they things that ruined any bit of mystery the character might have had, like Attack of the Clones did?
