Ewan McGregor Wants to Play Obi-Wan Again

Posted October 13, 2016 by Eoin Friel in News

We all know that the Star Wars prequels are almost irredeemably terrible but one of the half decent aspects was Ewan McGregor’s portrayal of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.

In a recent interview with Premiere (translated by Den of Geek) McGregor discusses how he would like to come back as Obi-Wan for at least 2 more films.

“It would be fun to film that story now I’m older,” McEwan explained, “I’d be the right age. I’m forty-five, Alec Guinness was what, sixty? I could do two of them (laughs)!”
On the future of the franchise, he concluded “I hope that they’re going to explore different genres under the Star Wars banner. And one of those could be an Obi-Wan Kenobi feature film. Or two! The Obi-Wan Kenobi Story Part 1 and Part 2!”

Being the Star Wars nerd that I am I would likely give these movies a watch if they ever happened but thus far there has been no announcement regarding future Ob-Wan movies. I read the book Kenobi a couple of years ago though and it would make for a fun (if not life changing) movie.
