D23 Obi Wan Series With Ewan Mc Gregor Confirmed

D23 Obi Wan Series With Ewan Mc Gregor Confirmed

Ewan McGregor asked LucasFilm head Kathleen Kennedy to ask him if he would be playing the beloved character again.

The iconic Jedi Knight role of Obi-Wan Kenobi was established by Alec Guinness in 1977's Star Wars, then picked up by McGregor in 1999's The Phantom Menace. Over the years, there have been no shortage of rumors that Lucasfilm was developing an Obi-wan standalone movie, and though it ultimately never came to fruition, I imagine that some of the story ideas proposed for that project have been put to good use in this upcoming Disney+ series. "Am I going to play Obi Wan Kenobi again?"

The Scottish actor portrayed Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, culminating in Revenge Of The Sith in 2005.

McGregor has said for years he'd be open to returning the Star Wars role. Already set to debut with Disney+ on Tuesday, Nov. 12 is The Mandalorian, which stars Pedro Pascal in the title role and boasts a supporting cast that includes Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito, Ming-Na Wen, Carl Weathers, Gina Carano and Werner Herzog. There's also a series starring Diego Luna reprising his Rogue One role as Cassian Andor in the works (Alan Tudyk's scene-stealing droid K-2SO is also on board).

Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Ewan McGregor, and the future of the Star Wars franchise on Disney+.
