There have been a lot of rumors in the past regarding Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off films. Ewan McGregor, who played the character in the prequel trilogy, has aways been part of these rumors and fans would love to see it happen! It’d be stupid if Lucasfilm didn’t make any Obi-Wan spinoff films because they’d be awesome, and McGregor is totally up for reprising his role.
During a recent interview with Den Of Geek, McGregor was asked about the potential spinoff film, and he made sure to point out that there are currently no plans, which just seems ridiculous to me. He went on to say:
“I’ve always thought there was a story to tell between my last one and Alec Guinness’ first one. It would be fun to film that story now I’m older. I’d be the right age. I’m forty-five, Alec Guinness was what, sixty? I could do two of them (laughs)!”
He also explained what he hopes Lucasfilm and Disney do with the Star Wars franchise, saying:
“I hope that they’re going to explore different genres under the Star Wars banner. And one of those could be an Obi-Wan Kenobi feature film. Or two! The Obi-Wan Kenobi Story Part 1 and Part 2!”
I personally like the idea of a trilogy, but if McGregor is willing to do two… I’ll take it! There’s been a good amount of news regarding this potential spinoff series, so make sure to check out all of the Obi-Wan Kenobi news here. I’m sure one day it will happen, of course, but I’d like to see it happen sooner rather than later.
