A new series that’s in talks at Disney may bring back an actor who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in three “Star Wars” feature films. Variety reports that Ewan McGregor is in talks for a series that would run on Disney’s streaming service.
McGregor played the Jedi master in the prequels “The Phantom Menace,” “Attack of the Clones” and “Revenge of the Sith.”
“There had been talk for years that McGregor would return in an Obi-Wan standalone film, but those plans were reportedly put on hold following the unsuccessful rollout of ‘Star Wars’ standalone film ‘Solo,'” Variety notes.
No other details about the potential series have come out, and reps for McGregor and the Disney+ streaming service weren’t commenting.
“The Obi-Wan series would be the third live-action ‘Star Wars’ show on Disney+,” Variety notes. “The nascent streamer has previously announced ‘The Mandalorian’ from Jon Favreau starring Pedro Pascal as well as a series based on Cassian Andor, the character first introduced in the film ‘Rogue One,’ with Diego Luna reprising his role from the film.”
