Star Wars rumor: Ewan McGregor signed on to play Obi-Wan again


There’s a Star Wars rumor circulating that Ewan McGregor is set to return as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Please be true!

It’s the Star Wars rumor we want to be true. It’s the rumor we are begging to be true.

Cinelinx is citing two sources saying Ewan McGregor is coming back as Obi-Wan. How sure are they? Well, both their sources say he has signed pen to paper.

More from Disney Plus

While we take all rumors with a grain of salt, this is one that has us excited because Obi-Wan is a beloved character that fans have been clamoring to see again for while now.

Here’s what we know:

With D23 next week, there is a lot of news we should be getting. There’s also a big Disney+ panel in which we are expected to get a trailer for The Mandalorian. There should be other Disney+ news with a possible announcement of a new Star Wars-related series.

We also know there is a third Disney+ Star Wars live-action series in its prelim stages. When the announcement came, we didn’t get anything more than that one was planned.

Then, there was the scrapped Obi-Wan movie that we had hoped was coming, but never did.

Again, D23 makes it the perfect time to announce the third series is about Obi-Wan Kenobi.

This is one most fans can get behind. Obi-Wan appeals to the original trilogy fans as the elder version was an instrumental part of the Luke’s upbringing. The character also appeals to fans of the prequel trilogy because of how important Obi-Wan was to Anakin’s story.

While we certainly don’t know if this rumor is true, we hope it is. It’s the one project that fans could agree on.
