WATCH: Ewan McGregor teases Obi-Wan special scene and new costume

May 13th, 2021 by Marc Comments

It’s official, Ewan McGregor is back as Obi-Wan Kenobi and is filming the Disney+ series as I type.

I a new interview on the Jimmy Kimmel Show (below), McGregor talked about returning to the role after Revenge of the Sith, 18 years ago.

The star cryptically said he got to film a very special scene on May 4th with “someone very special in my life,” but he said that it’s not someone he’s been on-screen with before and, when asked if the person was related to him, he replied: “No. Not necessarily.”

I can’t even fathom what that means.

As for the costume, he says it’s different and might not be “what you expect“.

So, expect Obi-Wan to be wearing something different than we expect or have seen during his (and Alec Guinness’) time playing the role before.

What do you make of the news? Who do you think he filmed a scene with? I can’t help feeling that he filmed a scene with a CGI Alec Guinness… I have no reason for saying this, I just have a hunch.

Anyway, let me know what you all think after you watch the clip…

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….
