Any solo Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is a few lightyears away, but that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate over when it will be set and who will play the Jedi Master. If it happens at all, that is.
We’re not the only ones day-dreaming about a Kenobi spin-off, though – because Ewan McGregor has reiterated (again) that he’s more than happy to revisit Obi-Wan.
Appearing on The View earlier this month, Ewan confirmed that he would “totally do” another Star Wars film but that, disappointingly, he has not yet been asked.
“There’s no plans as such to do it, as far as I know. I’ve been asked this question for years and years and I’d be happy to do it,” he said, before speculating where a spin-off might fit in.
Ewan continued: “There must be a good story to tell as they’re doing spin-offs – there’s likely to be a good Obi-Wan [story] between maybe me and Alec Guinness in that time.”
Rumours that casting had begun for a mystery Obi-Wan-related project were shut down back in May, but more promising spin-off news is out there in the galaxy somewhere.
It was reported earlier this year that Star Wars creator George Lucas, who knows Obi-Wan all too well, has been scouting for potential filming locations in Belfast.
But, of course, that could just be for Episode IX… couldn’t it?
Star Wars: Episode IX will be released on December 20, 2019.
