Is Ewan McGregor Really Getting Ready for Obi-Wan

It is not clear exactly when the Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor as the titular character will hit Disney+, but after seeing Ewan McGregor at Golden Globes awards ceremony in Beverly Hills, fans think he is already getting ready for the role. The actor, who presented an award alongside his Birds of Prey co-star Margot Robbie, was sporting a longer-than-usual ‘do, look very similar to the hairstyle he rocked as Obi-Wan in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. And fans are losing it.

What we are aware about the series is that it is set to examine Obi-Wan’s grief following the destruction of the Jedi Order in Revenge of the Sith

The Actor Says:

“The storyline sits between Episode III and Episode IV,” McGregor stated to Men’s Health. In the time since we last saw McGregor’s Obi-Wan, “the Jedi Order was falling apart. It will be interesting to take a character we know in a way and show him — Well, his arc will be quite interesting, I think, dealing with the fact that all the Jedi were slaughtered with the end of Episode III. It’s quite something to get over.”

Even after the official announcement about the series by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy during Disney’s D23 Expo in August, McGregor is still sworn to secrecy — “I’m not allowed to tell you anything about it,” he said. But McGregor did reveal his series will be comprised of six hour-long episodes.

“The most satisfying thing about those films, other than some of the fight sequences — which were amazing to do — was the study of Alec Guinness and trying to be believably him as a younger man. As an acting challenge, that was the most satisfying thing about those movies,” McGregor said of Lucas’ prequel trilogy when promoting Doctor Sleep on Conan. “And so now, that’s the same, except I’m just closer to the age he was when he played that film. So it’ll be interesting to play him now. And also, it being post — plot wise, [after] the three films that I made already — it’s after that, obviously. So there’s a bit of story, plot there.”
