Ewan McGregor: Obi-Wan Kenobi is waiting for me

From We Got This Covered

The Star Wars universe is on a seemingly unstoppable roll at the moment, and that looks set to continue well into the future. After the smashing success of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, not to mention Rogue One and The Force Awakens, Lucasfilm has already begun making plans for their next spinoff, one which will revolve around none other than Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Stephen Daldry is in talks to direct and from what we understand, the project is still without a script and in the very, very early stages of development. As such, it’s unclear if Ewan McGregor will pick up the lightsaber for this Star Wars offshoot, though given how keen the Scot has been in the past, we’re inclined to believe he’ll sign on without a second’s hesitation.

Not only that, but the actor has now been spotted sporting a very Obi-Wan-esque look, while also getting in shape for an upcoming role. It’s by no means confirmation that he’s set to feature in the spinoff, but the stars are certainly starting to align quite nicely, wouldn’t you say?
