Ewan McGregor as Obi Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars franchise has been a fairly regular sight, having appeared in three prequels: The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith.
Now the actor is in talks to return as head honcho Jedi, Obi Wan Kenobi, in a series for the Disney Plus television streaming channel.
Stories of McGregor returning in an Obi Wan standalone movie have been bandied about for the past couple of years, but Disney probably wanted to speed things up so that it would now draw audiences to its brand new streaming channel.
The Obi Wan series will be the third live-action Star Wars program on Disney Plus.
Ewan McGregor is also set to star in the forthcoming Doctor Sleep – a follow up to Stephen King’s The Shining (out in November) and as DC villain Black Mask in the film Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn.
