One Punch Man is a fantastic anime that is not only great at being satire, but its animation is freaking amazing. A lot of that has to do with the talent and skill of animator Arifumi Imai. Imai has also worked on Attack on Titan, Naruto: Shippuden, and many more. Take that amazing animation talent and apply it to one of the coolest lightsaber fights from Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi vs Darth Maul. This fight is the only reason anyone cares about The Phantom Menace, and Imai’s animation style makes it cooler. It appears that the animation was done quick since it’s in black and white except for the lightsabers, and it looks like it’s a draft. I would love for him to do the full fight sequence (maybe even include Qui-Gon) and give it the full polish. … [Read more...] about ONE PUNCH MAN Animator Tries Animating Classic STAR WARS Fight Between Obi-Wan and Darth Maul
Doth Ewan McGregor protest too much? At Sunday's Golden Globes, the actor briefly addressed increased chatter about a possible Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars spinoff, saying, "There’s a lot of talk, and I’d be happy to play him again, but I don’t know anything more than you do." This came after a photo of McGregor training (and sporting a very Kenobi-like beard) circulated online, prompting new rounds of speculation following news breaking in August that Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry was in early talks to helm a film starring the character. McGregor starred in the Star Wars prequels as Kenobi from 1999-2005, and back in August, there was no word on an actor being attached to the project.

Here is what some of the staff of Heat Vision would like to see in the possible standalone: Ryan Parker: I would love for … [Read more...] about ‘Star Wars’: What Does an Obi-Wan Kenobi Film Need?
What does Ewan McGregor think of possibly returning to the Star Wars galaxy as Obi-Wan Kenobi? "There’s a lot of talk, and I’d be happy to play him again, but I don’t know anything more than you do," McGregor told reporters backstage at Sunday's Golden Globes, where he won a best actor honor for FX's Fargo. He's long maintained he'd be interested in a chance to reprise the role. In August, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry was in early talks to direct an Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff movie. And over the weekend, a photo of McGregor working out while sporting a very Kenobi-looking beard had fans speculating that perhaps the actor was gearing up for a Star Wars return. McGregor played the Jedi master in the Star Wars prequels from 1999-2005, and his voice was featured briefly in 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens during a scene in which Rey (Daisy Ridley) had a vision. The latest … [Read more...] about ‘Star Wars’: Ewan McGregor Weighs in On Possible Obi-Wan Kenobi Film
