Ewan McGregor May Return As Obi-Wan Kenobi For Disney

Ewan McGregor to Return as Obi Wan Kenobi in Disney Plus Series Ewan McGregor Might Return For Disney+'s Obi-Wan STAR WARS Series

We've often entertained the idea of a Star Wars standalone movie or series of films about Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Ewan McGregor did say he'd be up for the role.

Ewan McGregor's return as Obi-Wan Kenobi has reportedly been in development at Lucasfilm for quite sometime, ever since George Lucas sold the company to Disney back in 2012.

Could Darth Vader really be appearing in the Obi-Wan show, though?

Well, it's time to fire up the old hyper rumor generator once more. The push for the stand-alone flick halted after the relatively unsuccessful release of Solo: A Starwars Story in 2018, which was a spin-off to the original Skywalker saga which McGregor's character is known for. I've never done anything like this, but I was asked to come and I said I'd do it. I'd be happy to do it.

She says a fence will remain around the store's perimeter and that Walmart is using contracted security guards to prevent trespassing.

While he hasn't officially signed the papers, Deadline has confirmed that the actor and Lucasfilm are in discussion and we shouldn't have long to wait for an official announcement.

He previously starred as Kenobi-a legendary Jedi master in three Star Wars prequels.

Disney+ is the ideal landscape for an Obi-Wan show given that the platform is home to a few other Star Wars series: The Mandalorian, starring Pedro Pascal as the titular lone gunslinger; and the yet-untitled Rogue One prequel series, which sees Diego Luna reprise his role as Cassian Andor. McGregor has expressed interest in reprising his role as Obi-Wan before in press interviews. Lucasfilm premiered Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977 and nearly instantly fans fell in love with Ben Kenobi and his relationship with Luke Skywalker. The project will be a big driver for Disney's new $7 a month Netflix-smashing streaming service, which now combines ESPN, base Hulu with ads, and Disney+ all for $12.99 a month.
