Apparently the details are still sparse as they are working on assembling their team. As of right now it looks like Stephen Daldry is in early negotiations to direct.
The BIG question is… Will Ewan McGregor be in it?!!!!
He is arguable one of the best parts of the prequel trilogy and it would be a huge missed opportunity if he wasn’t asked to come back and play the part.
I’ve been championing this idea since it hit the rumor mill what seems like years ago! If they can place the story sometime between EP. 3 and 4, it would be perfect! There are basically decades of stories worth to tell, until we see him in A New Hope.
How pumped are you?!!!
