STAR WARS EPISODE IX: Ewan McGregor Rumored To Reprise Obi-Wan Kenobi Role

With countless conflicting reports about the status of that Obi-Wan Kenobi movie, it appears as if the character will, in fact, first be seen in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode IX. Read on for details...

Ewan McGregor lent his voice to Star Wars: The Force Awakens and while speculation ran rampant that we might see him make a physical appearance as a Force Ghost in The Last Jedi, that honour ultimately went to Yoda in what proved to be the sequel's biggest surprise. However, a new report now points to the actor reprising his role from the Star Wars prequels in J.J. Abrams' upcoming Episode IX.

According to The Sun, McGregor will "secretly" shoot scenes for the threequel later this year and while the site doesn't elaborate on what his role will be, common sense says that he'll appear as a Force Ghost guiding Rey in her mission to bring down The First Order (which makes more sense than Luke Skywalker showing up after Mark Hamill's comments about not wanting to reprise that role again). 

While it would be easy to dismiss this report given the source, bear in mind that the British tabloid were the ones who broke the news about Jake Gyllenhaal taking on the role of Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far From Home. However, seeing as this is supposed to be a secret, don't be surprised if we fail to find out whether or not this is going to happen until Episode IX is released in
theaters next December.
