"Which was the biggest grossing movie last year? Star Wars, and where does George Lucas propose to follow up about Obi-Wan Kenobi? Northern Ireland. "

There have been rumors about a Kenobi movie for some time and George Lucas has already been spotted on the set of Solo en The Mandalorian. Will "The Maker" really go back? Or is Boris Johnson next to it?

As Yoda said so beautifully: "Impossible to see, the future is".
