Since Disney purchased Lucasfilm and announced a series of Star Wars spin-off movies, there have been various reports and rumours that Ewan McGregor would be returning to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi for a solo outing.
McGregor himself has been vocal about wanting to return to a galaxy far, far away, but it seems that nothing is on the table at the moment.
“There’s no official offer, and I haven’t met them about it or anything,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “But I’ve always said that I’d be happy to do it if they wanted to do it. It would be a good segue between the last episode of the prequels and the new episodes. I think they’ve got films to make until the 2020s, so I don’t think it’s going to happen soon if it happens at all.”
McGregor notes that an Obi-Wan movie would be a good segue from the prequels to the new episodes, but didn’t Rogue One: A Star Wars Story do that?
