Does Leaked Ewan McGregor Photo Confirm The Obi-Wan 'Star Wars' Spin-Off?

Even if Disney greenlights an Obi-Wan movie, there's also the question of when the story in the galaxy far, far away might take place and if McGregor would be the right age to tell that story.

It's impossible to say for certain that Disney is even working on an Obi-Wan movie.

If you ask me, there is no Obi-Wan anthology film without Ewan McGregor, his involvement is a must if the film is to succeed. One simple online search and everything from fan-made posters, to trailers imagining McGregor donning his iconic Jedi robes and wielding his blue lightsaber again, is proof that many fans are anticipating the Star Wars prequel trilogy star's return to the space opera franchise.

McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Reporter Yvonne Villarreal caught up with the Fargo star on the Golden Globes red carpet, he reveals that the much-anticipated film is nothing but "talks". That's why any time rumors of an Obi-Wan film begin to circulate, McGregor's name is always attached.

He accompanied it with a humorous artwork of a sketch showing Carrie, who passed away suddenly a year ago, in robes and a crown, carrying a French bulldog in one hand as she stuck up the middle finger of the other. This further points to a 2020 release date for the movie.

McGregor took home a Golden Globe last night for his performance in Fargo, but the press backstage couldn't help but ask the actor how he felt about reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a future Star Wars film. For now, though, fans will have to content themselves with the fact that another franchise favorite, Han Solo, will soon be returning to the big screen on May 25 in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
