Here’s what Ewan McGregor told The Hollywood Reporter about his upcoming Kenobi series in their recent interview:

I’m really excited about it. Maybe more so than the first ones, because I’m older — I just turned 50 — and I’m just in a much better place.

He was then asked about working with Deborah Chow – the series’ director and showrunner.

I have done some screen tests with Deborah [Chow] and other people, and I can see that she is a really, really good director.

He was then asked whether any of these screen tests were with a young Luke Skywalker.

Here’s what Ewan replied:

That’s very possible. I don’t know.

He gave a little grin when he said this, so he’s clearly indicating here that the series will feature a young Luke Skywalker.
