Ewan McGregor open to another Obi-Wan Kenobi return: “I’d be totally up for that”

After filming for the first part of the wrapped Star Wars, Ewan McGregor could hardly imagine returning as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Twenty years after appearing in Phantom Menace, McGregor is back as Obi-Wan in the new Disney + series. The show was designed as a six-episode series, but McGregor’s experience was so positive that he was happy to return as a Jedi knight.

“If I had the chance to do it again, I would be completely ready,” he told Total Film in a new magazine featuring Obi-Wan Kenobi on the cover. McGregor’s return to Star Wars was first suggested in the mid-2010s when the actor began to express his interest in replaying his role.

“I’ll go here again,” he jokes. “It’s like knocking on a Disney door!”

“I’m glad I came back and was able to close the gap between me and Alec Guinness,” McGregor said of the shoot for the new series. This time, I made a lot more money than the first three movies combined. It’s about writing, the people who do the show together, the technology, and how everything is different.

On the cover of the new issue of Total Film magazine, McGregor looks at Darth Vader’s actor Hayden Christensen, starring actor Moses Ingram, and director Deborah Chow about Obi-Wan and his new adventures.

Ewan McGregor open to another Obi-Wan Kenobi return: “I’d be totally up for that”

After the Star Wars prequels finished filming, Ewan McGregor could barely imagine himself returning as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Now, two decades on from appearing in The Phantom Menace, McGregor’s back as Obi-Wan in a new series for Disney Plus. And while the show has been conceived as a limited, six-episode run, McGregor’s experience was so positive that he would happily return as the Jedi knight.
“If we were to get an opportunity to do it again, I’d be totally up for that,” he tells Total Film in the new issue of the magazine, which features Obi-Wan Kenobi on the cover. McGregor’s Star Wars comeback was first suggested back in the mid-2010s, when the actor first began publicly expressing interest in returning to the role. 
“Here I go again,” he jokes. “It’s like me knocking at Disney’s door again!”
Reflecting on filming the new series, McGregor says: “It was nice to come back and to bridge that gap between me and Alec Guinness. I got as much, or more, out of playing him this time than I did in the first three movies put together. That’s to do with the writing, and the people we were making the series with, and the technology, and how different everything is. 
In the cover story of the new issue of Total Film magazine, McGregor, Darth Vader actor Hayden Christensen, co-star Moses Ingram, and director Deborah Chow talk in-depth about Obi-Wan and his new adventure.
