Ewan McGregor says most Obi-Wan Kenobi fan theories are dead wrong. Following his iconic portrayal by Sir Alec Guinness in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, for which he received a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nod, McGregor took over the role of Obi-Wan for the prequel trilogy and his version of the character managed to become equally beloved.
After years of uncertainty regarding McGregor's return as the Jedi master and whether it would be in a spinoff film or limited series, the Disney+Obi-Wan Kenobi show was finally announced in 2019.
McGregor leads the cast of Obi-Wan Kenobi alongside Hayden Christensen making his anticipated return as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader.
Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse also reprise their roles from the prequel trilogy as Owen and Beru Lars. Written by Joby Harold and directed by Deborah Chow, the limited series is set 10 years after Revenge of the Sith and finds Obi-Wan watching over a young Luke Skywalker on Tatooine while being hunted by several Inquisitors.Read more on screenrant.com
