Report: Ewan McGregor May Headline an Obi-Wan Kenobi Series For Disney+

Ewan McGregor May Headline an Obi-Wan Kenobi Series

Earlier today, a report on Cinelinx suggested that Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi for a live-action Star Wars series on Disney+. And it looks like there’s more to that report than just talk. Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter have both confirmed that McGregor is in negotiations for the project.

McGregor took over the role of Obi-Wan for the Star Wars prequel trilogy two decades ago. His last live-action appearance was in 2005’s Revenge of the Sith. However, McGregor also lent his voice to Rey’s Force vision in The Force Awakens. Additionally, McGregor hasn’t been shy about his desire to reprise his role.

Two years ago, director Stephen Daldry was supposedly lined up to direct a standalone Obi-Wan film. Unfortunately, the dismal box office performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story put all the spinoff movies on hold.

No other details about the potential Obi-Wan series are currently available. A few Star Wars novels and comics have explored Obi-Wan’s life on Tatooine between Episodes III and IV. Obi-Wan also had a memorable rematch with Darth Maul in Star Wars Rebels. But any story direction for the new show is simply conjecture at this point.

Disney+ already has two live-action Star Wars series lined up: The Mandalorian and the untitled Cassian Andor series. The upcoming D23 Expo may be an ideal time to announce an Obi-Wan series, if the project is ready to go.
