Ewan McGregor is still up to play Obi-Wan Kenobi again: 'It would be fun to do'
Speaking to Business Insider recently about reprising another known character from his past, Renton in "Trainspotting" ("T2 Trainspotting" is currently in theaters), we couldn't help but ask about his thoughts on grabbing the lightsaber once more to play 'ol Ben."Listen, I have been asked about it a lot, to the point where it looks a bit like I'm sort of touting for work," said McGregor. "I've been very open to say I'd be happy to do it, if they want to do it."Advertisement

"I think they are set going into the 2030s with their movies, but it would be fun to do, of course I'd be happy to do it," he said.Though he hopes if they ever do call he's not "older than Alec Guinness was" when he played the character in "Star Wars: A New Hope."
Looking at what Kenobi did on Tatooine before "A New Hope" has been chronicled in comic-book form with Marvel's one-off "Star Wars #7."The comic delves into the journals that Luke Skywalker finds after returning to Tatooine following the events in "A New Hope." Kenobi's writings give us a glimpse of what he did for years on the planet while he was in hiding from the Empire.That looks to have great potential as a starting point for a Kenobi standalone movie.Advertisement
