Ewan McGregor Could Be Returning as Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan, is that you?

Lucasfilm may as well have announced that the Stormtroopers were invading last week if the level of disappointment by Star Wars fans was anything to go by.

Poorer-than-expected box office performance for Solo: A Star Wars Story meant that the production company behind the franchise has decided to put on hold future lone projects — including a spin-off for beloved Jedi, Obi-Wan Kenobi.

But, according to reports, there may be life in the Death Star just yet…

The Sun has claimed that Ewan McGregor — who has played Obi-Wan since 1999 — will secretly shoot scenes with Star Wars IX director, J.J. Abrams.

The last time fans got to see the 47-year-old in the role was in 2005’s Revenge of the Sith.

Here’s hoping that the Force is with him.
