Ewan McGregor In Talks To Play Obi Wan In Disney Plus STAR WARS Series


Ewan McGregor is in talks to reprise his iconic role as Obi Wan Kenobi in a Disney Plus Star Wars series.

McGregor previously played the character in the three Star Wars prequels The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. While the films were controversial there was enough positive feeling for the character and McGregor’s performance that when the Star Wars spinoff films were announced it was expected that Obi Wan would be one of the standalone films.

If McGregor signs on and the project is greenlit the Obi Wan series would be the third Star Wars series on the streaming service joining The Mandalorian starring Pedro Pascal and a show based on Rogue One’s Cassian Andor.
