Golden Globes: Ewan McGregor talks Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars spin-off!

Obi-Wan

So unsurprisingly, after picking up the Golden Globe for Best Performance By An Actor In A Limited Series Or A Motion Picture Made For Television for his work on Fargo season 3, McGregor was asked about the potential Star Wars standalone.

Unlike actors like Daisy Ridley and Harrison Ford, McGregor is very open to his return for Star Wars, and if you think his last appearance in the franchise was in Revenge of the Sith, he actually had a small voice cameo in The Force Awakens (at the end of Rey's Force vision). If it happens, though, fans may have a long wait in store. The Gareth Edwards-directed Rogue One underwent reported massive reshoots and even story-rewrites, while previous year Solo: A Star Wars Anthology experienced a major shake-up when original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired three weeks before principal photography was scheduled to conclude, prior to director Ron Howard stepping in.

"There's a lot of talk". The movie would explain the origins of Kenobi, who first appeared in "A New Hope" under actor Alec Guinness before the mantle was passed to McGregor for the 1999-2005 prequel trilogy. The same goes for a movie set during the Clone Wars, though that possibility seems like a long shot considering that period of Kenobi's life has been covered at length in the animated movie and TV series.
