Ewan McGregor Open To Obi-Wan Kenobi Appearances After Series


Ewan McGregor has revealed that he’s very open to returning as Obi-Wan Kenobi after the upcoming Disney Plus series.

McGregor revealed this during a recent interview with Total Film (via GamesRadar).

Here’s what the actor had to say about wanting to return as Obi-Wan Kenobi again after the upcoming Star Wars series:

If we were to get an opportunity to do it again, I’d be totally up for that.

Now, he could be talking of doing a season 2 of Obi-Wan Kenobi in the future, which I would be totally down for.

That wasn’t all that McGregor had to say on the matter.

He went on to joke about going to Disney and asking for a job, saying: “Here I go again … It’s like me knocking at Disney’s door again!”

McGregor’s been hoping for a return to the role for quite some time.

It’s so nice that he’s getting to play the character again and I’m sure that if the show is successful, then Disney and Lucasfilm won’t spent too long to greenlight Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2.

McGregor then added: “It was nice to come back and to bridge that gap between me and Alec Guinness.”

“I got as much, or more, out of playing him this time than I did in the first three movies put together. That’s to do with the writing, and the people we were making the series with, and the technology, and how different everything is.”

As for the upcoming series, here’s how Disney Plus describes the new series:

During the reign of the Galactic Empire, former Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi embarks on a crucial mission. Kenobi must confront allies turned enemies and face the wrath of the Empire.
