Ewan McGregor Wants to Do a Star Wars Spin-Off Film as Obi-Wan

By on June 23, 2015


With all the new “Star Wars” films popping up, its not surprising that some of the old stars are starting to express their desire to return to the franchise. I mean it is a pretty great franchise. Ewan McGregor recently revealed he was willing to return to the universe as his character Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Considering his character in the second trilogy is dead, this would have to mean that Obi comes back in one of the spin off films or even Anthology series, perhaps even have him return in a film set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

McGregor was quoted saying,

“I’d be happy to do the story from episodes three where I finish up and Alec Guinness starts.”

Personally, any film with McGregor in it would be awesome. He was easily one of the best things in those later films. There is also potential for a lot of cool story considering the events between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope for Obi are pretty unknown.

The first anthology film, titled Rogue One, is set for a 2016 release, between the releases of episodes VII and VII. It does take place between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, but it focuses on the Rebels stealing the plans to the Death Star.
