The next movie in the ‘Star Wars Story’ franchise will feature Obi-Wan Kenobi, not Lando as a  recent French magazine misinterpreted with an interview with Kathleen Kennedy, and it’s not an origin story … far far from it.

According to a bulletin obtained by TMZ — Disney’s next foray into their spin-off series appears to be called “Obi-Wan: A Star Wars Story,” with a working title of “Joshua Tree.” and not Kenobi : A Star Wars Story as most speculated

The synopsis reads as follows … Obi-Wan is on Tatooine being an elusive hermit and stuff, but secretly watches over an infant Luke Skywalker, whom he delivered to his uncle, Owen. Tensions between the local farmers and a tribe of Sand People — headed by a ruthless war chief — eventually brings Obi outta hiding … and into Jedi kickass mode.

The bulletin lists Stephen Daldry as the director — he’d been rumored to be in talks for the film, and now it looks like he’s attached. The movie’s shooting in Pinewood, which has been used for all the recent Star Wars production, and is set to begin in the spring of 2019.
