Ewan McGregor In ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’? Actor Reportedly Set To Reprise Role As Obi-Wan Kenobi
Another classic “Star Wars” character is reportedly returning for “Episode VII,” as Ewan McGregor is rumored to be reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Latino Review reports that multiple sources involved with the new sequel say McGregor will return as a Force Ghost, given Obi-Wan was killed by Darth Vader in “A New Hope” and the new trilogy takes place after the events of “Return of the Jedi.” HuffPost Entertainment reached out to McGregor’s reps to confirm the report but has not yet heard back.
McGregor has expressed a willingness to return to his old intergalactic role, which he took on during the prequel trilogy. The actor told Digital Spy last year that he’d be “happy” to renew Obi-Wan.
