Ewan McGregor is forever tied to the Star Wars movies for his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the prequel trilogy. Personally? I thought he was great as Kenobi.

With everything that’s happening in the Star Wars universe, the concept of a movie (possibly one of the anthology movies) focusing on what happened to good ole Ben Kenobi in between episodes III and IV has be brought up many times.  During a live Q&A, some fans asked McGregor if he’s be up for such a film:

“I’ll say it publicly, here, now. I’d be happy to do the story between Episode 3, that I finished in, and Episode 4 that Alec Guinness started in. I think that would be good. Disney should definitely do that,” McGregor said in a manner described by IndieWire as “half-quipping.”

He also addressed The Force Awakens saying, “I’m excited about it as much as anyone else. I saw the trailer and it looks like he absolutely nailed it and it feels right. But I’m not sure about the [crossguard] lightsaber. If you fight with a lightsaber properly you don’t need one.”

So there you go, he’s up for it, but will Disney get him to get it? Only the Force knows…

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….
