Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan Kenobi Set To Return For STAR WARS: EPISODE VII?

After recent news of Ian McDiarmid's Emperor Palpatine returning for Star Wars: Episode VII, a new report claims that Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi as a Force ghost in the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel.



After playing Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, Ewan McGregor expressed interest in reprising the role for Disney's Episode VII, most likely replacing the late Alec Guinness as the Force ghost version of the Jedi master. Well, it looks like that will be the case. After breaking news of Ian McDiarmid's Emperor Palpatine returning for the 2015 sequel in a similar manner, Latino-Review has learned that McGregor is on board to play Obi-Wan as a Force ghost in the Star Wars sequel trilogy. The actor is also interested in a solo film starring the character, as Disney will be pumping out various stand-alone installments in the coming years. And after Hayden Christensen's Anakin Skywalker replaced Sebastian Shaw's in the ending of Return Of The Jedi starting with the 2004 DVD re-release, Latino-Review suggests that his possibly reprising his role from the prequels as well isn't out of the question. Are you looking forward to seeing Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi again for Star Wars: Episode VII?

Set to begin filming early next year in the UK for a Summer 2015 theatrical release, Disney and Lucasfilm's Star Wars: Episode VII will be directed by J.J. Abrams from a script by Michael Arndt.
