*Ewan McGregor literally at lucasfilm having lunch with Kathleen Kennedy in full outfit with a script in hand*
I know as much you guys do.
Disney: "We hear you loud and clear guys. We're trying to negotiate a deal with Conor McGregor for the new movie."
There’s literally no reason to go for someone else, come on Disney don’t let us down.
He probably just walks around like that
Don't lecture me, McGregor, I see through the lies of Disney! I will bring 'Kenobi: A High Ground Story' to my new canon!
Cue an alcoholic-Obi Wan moping around a bar in tattooine for the whole movie.
On a somewhat related note, when I was in the Air Force I used to work alongside Ewan McGregor's brother Colin around the time Ewan was filming the prequels.
Colin was a pilot and used to go crazy every time he walked to the jet as almost everyone would hum the Imperial Death March and stop if he looked at whoever he thought was doing it. We would also wish him a 'may the force be with you' just as we disconnected the throat mic and watch him go ballistic in the cockpit as he tried to give us hell for it. Good times.
Disney is just leaving guaranteed money on the table if they don't do an Obi Wan film.
Disney: Do you know anybody who would be interested in the role?
Ewan Mcgrefor: Of course I know him. He’s me.
This is literally the only spin off movie I would get excited about. Please make this happen Disney.
It's all about marketting. Of ourse Disney is gonna use him as Obi Wan, they are not officially telling us to keep us hyped, worried and proactive about their products.
