VoiceThe Star Wars actor will return in a Disney+ series about the Jedi master – a role he first played in The Phantom Menace
Return of the Jedi: Ewan McGregor to reprise role as Obi-Wan Kenobi
Ewan McGregor’s eagerness to return to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the character he first played in 1999’s The Phantom Menace prequel, has long been documented.
But it now looks as if his wish will come true, as Disney has commissioned a big-budget series developing the adventures of the Jedi master. Originally, the studio had been planning a standalone movie for the character, but this evolved into a show – as was also the case for Boba Fett, subject of the forthcoming Mandalorian series.
