WATCH: Ewan McGregor talks new Star Wars movies

February 10th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Ok, so we all know the new Star Wars movies are going to be set in the future of Star Wars or during the Original Trilogy but we never thought of some being set in the prequel era.

Or at least I didn’t. However, Ewan ‘I played Obi-Wan Kenobi but don’t like talking about it’ McGregor was on the Jimmy Kimmel show this week promoting Jack The Giant Slayer when the topic of Star Wars came up. He was cagey about it and avoided the question with a nice bit of deflection but he did confirm he was in the loop and ‘they’ told him the new movies were happening.

Was he being evasive or was he genuinely in the dark? What do you guys think?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
