Ewan McGregor Says There Are No Plans For Obi-Wan Star Wars Movie Starring Him

Unfortunately, if such a project is now being developed, it is happening without McGregor involved, as he recently shared that he's unaware of such a project existing.

Sorry, Obi-Wan fans, but a standalone film for the beloved Jedi Master isn't now in the works at Lucasfilm.at least as far as Ewan McGregor knows.

"There's no plans, as such, as far as I know", he said, although it wasn't with a bitter attitude in any way. I'd be happy to do it. "There's likely to be a good Obi-Wan [story] between me and Alec Guinness".

What's next for Turkey after lira slump?
Relations between Turkey and the United States have been soured by Brunson's detention, as well as diverging interests on Syria. The external funds entered the Turkish economy to finance deficits, massive government spending and company borrowing.

The news comes as a bit of a shock, as in past reports, we heard that there was talk of a spin-off detailing Obi-Wan's adventures pre-A New Hope was in the works. Talking about how often he's been asked about whether he wants to star in a spin-off, he joked, "I've answered yes so many times that it looks like I'm sort of touting for work at Disney's door, you know what I mean?" For one, despite rumors that George Lucas visited Belfast in order to scout locations for the movie, it's since been confirmed that the Star Wars creator was simply visiting the city's Paint Hall Studio. Until Lucasfilm breaks the silence themselves, it's impossible to know what's going on with Obi-Wan Kenobi and his potential spinoff.

McGregor suggested that, even if he doesn't return to the role, someone should still tell the story of the Jedi's missing years.
