Hello There!

 

 

 

Ewan McGregor has confirmed that he will be reprising the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi for a Disney Plus series centered around the powerful Jedi, after Variety previously reported that he was in talks for the series.

At Disney biannual D23 convention in Anaheim, Calif. on Friday, McGregor provided more details about the prospective show and explained why he decided to pick up the light saber and don the Jedi robe once again.

Producer Kathleen Kennedy said, “We have all the scripts written we’re ready to start shooting next year.”
McGregor previously played the character in the three “Star Wars” prequels “The Phantom Menace,” “Attack of the Clones,” and “Revenge of the Sith.” There had been talk for years that he would return as Obi-Wan for a standalone film, but those plans were reportedly paused after the unsuccessful rollout of the “Star Wars” standalone film “Solo.”

Nah man, it'll be a sequel! It'll be called My Master the Force Ghost and it'll be about the period after RotJ when the ghost of Obi Wan would hang around Luke, pestering him. "Luke? LUU-uuke! Have you done your Jedi meditation yet? Come on, Luke, you need to be at one with the force!"
