Could Ewan McGregor be returning to Star Wars: Episode VII as Obi-Wan Kenobi?
As mind bending as it sounds, it is very possible. Latino Review is breaking the news that three sources close to the project have told them that Ewan will be joining the new Episode VII cast, and reprising the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Ewan played the Jedi Knight in the prequel trilogy and followed in the footsteps of the late Sir Alec Guinness who played the character in the original trilogy.
Now, this follows another rumor that Emperor Palpatine will also be popping up in the new story as well, as a Force Ghost, similar to Obi Wan Kanobi in Return of the Jedi. And his character will be appearing to help motivate a new Sith apprentice! So, maybe some of the new baddies will get some expert hand lighting training.
And it also seems like Palpatine may not be the only Force Ghost appearing. Nope, these sources are saying that Obi-Wan Kenobi will also be back from the netherworld of the Force as a Force Ghost as well. That is exactly how we last saw Guiness' Obi-Wan in the original trilogy, so could McGregor be replacing Alec Guiness' much older version of the character? Since Guiness has obviously passed away?
It's all very interesting.
McGregor has previously made it known that he would love to come back to the franchise, as long as there was a spot for him and Latino Review is also saying that McGregor is now interested in having his character have his own stand alone film.
Now, it's important to note that none of this has been confirmed by Disney.But if these sources are true, what is your best guess on how Disney will use Ewan as Obi-Wan Kenobi? And what other characters do you think Disney would want to bring back in Episode VII?
