Ewan McGregor Plays Down OBI-WAN KENOBI Movie Rumors; Praises THE LAST JEDI As "Beautiful"
Following his Golden Globes acceptance speech tonight, Ewan McGregor was asked about the recent reports that Disney/Lucasfilm had an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie in the works, and he said it was "just talk"...
The actor, who won an award for his performance in season 3 of Fargo, reiterated that he would be up for returning as the Jedi Master after bringing the younger version of the character to life many years ago in the Prequels, but maintains that for the time being it's just "a lot of talk."
MvGregor has seen The Last Jedi, though, and was full of praise for the latest Star Wars flick.
Ewan McGregor on the rumors of him returning as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: “There's a lot of talk. But [it's] just that. I'd be happy to play him again. . . There is no plan. I love the new one. I saw it over Christmas. . .it was really, really beautiful.”— Julie Miller (@juliewmiller) January 8, 2018
