Star Wars’ Ewan McGregor wants Obi-Wan Kenobi movie

Ewan McGregor wants to return to Tatooine for a Star Wars solo movie set before A New Hope

Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi

While the prequel trilogy’s young, swashbuckling Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ewan McGregor, only learned about Disney’s plans to make standalone Star Wars movies live on air as a guest on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, he’s since had a chance to think about it, and has thrown his brown Jedi hood into the ring, pitching a pre-Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope tale of the reclusive Ben Kenobi, battling Tuskan Raiders and evading the Empire in the wilds of the Outer Rim.

“I think it’s a good idea,” McGregor told MTV. “The only bit that I could get away with doing is after the last one I made, Episode III, before Alec Guinness, there’s that period where he’s in the desert.

“That might be my window, there, to tell that story. I don’t know what he did in the desert. We could make up some stuff. Could be quite exciting. I’d be up for it, for sure, of course.”
