Ewan McGregor Up For Reprising Obi-Wan Role For Episode VII
Jay Cochran - December 30, 2012





Actor Ewan McGregor who played the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi in the pre-qual Star Wars movies Episodes I-III recently admitted in an interview with Total Film magazine that he would be up for reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the upcoming new Star Wars movies if the need ever arisen.

Id be up for it, he said. If they need me to be Obi-Wan Kenobi, Id be happy to do it. Who knows what the story would be? he added. Im up for it anyway. I will don the cloak again.

I can only imagine I would be a hologram type person because Alec Guinness cant do it now,


Sir Alec Guinness who passed away in 2000 was the original actor to take on the Obi-Wan role in Episodes IV-VI.

What a great Macguffin clones are! Between that and time travel, sci-fi has an "out" for any story imaginable, anything can be undone. Regardless of whether or not it should be.

I guess they'll be interviewing everybody w/ a chance of being included in the new movies? [i]If[/i] they had to, I could see Ewan as an hologram in the jedi archives or something; but, as much as I liked him as young Obi-Wan, I dread the reaction to a dubbed Alec Guiness

I think Ewan did a great job as a young Ob-wan mainly in AOTC and ROTS As for TPM not so much. Him playing Obi-wan in this new trilogy. Well,they can't resurrect Alec Guinnes.

the guy that laughed out loud when told the title to Episode II wants to do more? he must be hurting for money...or wanting the possibility of being in a good Star Wars movie.
