Ewan McGregor Wants to Play Obi-Wan Kenobi Again in 'Star Wars'

Han Solo’s coming back. So why not Obi-Wan Kenobi?

Ewan McGregor says he’s ready to fire up the light saber again for a “Star Wars” spinoff. “I’d be happy to do the story from episodes three where I finish up and Alec Guinness starts,” the actor, who played a young Obi-Wan in the prequel trilogy, said at the Edinburgh Film Festival.

But as EW notes, the 44-year-0ld actor may have to wait in line: Next up are “The Force Awakens” in December and “Rogue One” in 2016, followed by a third movie somewhere between 2017 and 2019, with the subsequent spinoffs likely to feature Boba Fett and Han Solo.

Still, McGregor remains enthusiastic after enjoying “The Force Awakens” trailer with Harrison Ford and Chewbacca.

“I’m really pleased I’m part of the legacy of it and happy to see it and I’ve seen the trailer and it looks like they’ve absolutely nailed it,” he said.
