Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor to be announced at D23?


Reps for McGregor and Disney Plus did not immediately respond to Variety's request for comment.

For years, rumors have swirled that Ewan McGregor might return to Star Wars to play Obi-Wan Kenobi in a standalone film. If true, it's even possible that we'll get a surprise announcement about it at D23 this year, as Disney is sure to be dropping a ton of Star Wars information at their annual event.

Of course, as long as the actor is in negotiations, the fate of the TV show isn't certain; Disney may require McGregor to be attached to the project for it to go ahead at all, although it could also consider casting a different actor if his schedule or pay expectations don't align with theirs. Following Solo, fans begin to daydream of more in-depth journies of beloved Star Wars characters. With four feature length releases under the new regime, confirmations of an untitled trilogy by Rian Johnson, a series of films by Game of Thrones co-creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and a slew of Disney Plus programs coming, it would seem like there's more than enough to keep the fans satisfied. Would you tune in for an Obi-Wan series on Disney+?
