WATCH: Ewan McGregor tells fans he’s coming back for Kenobi: A Star Wars Story series

August 24th, 2019 by Marc Comments

All the way from the Disney D23 expo, the news we’ve waited a long for… Ewan McGregor is retuning as Obi-Wan Kenobi!

Kathy Kennedy just announced that Ewan McGregor will be playing Obi-Wan Kanobi again in Kenobi: A Star Wars Story. They will begin shooting next year.

I love that they have kept the ‘Star Wars Story’ part as it means we may finally get the conclusion of the story set up in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Anyway, I digress…

All the scripts are written and it does take place during Solo: A Star Wars Story… so who know where this will lead?

Check out Ewan McGregor confirming on stage that he’s coming back as our favourite Jedi Knight.

Say it with me… ‘well, hello there!’

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….
