We are ALL FOR THIS.
Around here, we're inclined to believe that Ewan McGregor is a fantastic actor (because he is), even though the Star Wars prequels weren't up to par. That doesn't mean he can't be extraordinary in a spinoff dedicated to Obi-Wan Kenobi, especially if the project is in the right hands!
Yoda, Han Solo and Boba Fett’s name have all come up in speculation, but now Ewan wants to throw his character into the mix. Who doesn't want to know what Obi-Wan was up to before Luke went to find him??
Here's what he said:
‘I think it’s a good idea. The only bit that I could get away with doing is after the last one I made, Episode III, before Alec Guinness, there’s that period where he’s in the desert. That might be my window, there, to tell that story. I don’t know what he did in the desert. We could make up some stuff. Could be quite exciting. I’d be up for it, for sure, of course!’
That would rule!!
The thing is though, we don't know if Disney is planning to do spinoffs with any of the main characters — they might just be brand new stories altogether, with brand new characters.
Would U be interested in an Obi-Wan film???
