Rumor: ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ is bringing back Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan and I highly fuck with this

I am one of like four people I know who is really sweating Episode IX (Rendar, Bateman, Neo, me?), and I ain’t gonna apologize! The latest rumor has Obi-Wan making an appearance in the flick, and I’m fucking down like a clown for it.


With the future of Star Wars spin-off movies up in the air, some of the legacy characters from the Star Wars saga who were meant to get their own installments in the Star Wars Story banner are left in limbo. However, a new rumor indicates that one of the characters rumored to have his own Star Wars spin-off might make a return to the primary saga.

A new rumor, which should be taken with a huge grain of salt, indicates that Star Wars prequel trilogy star Ewan McGregor may secretly shoot a role for Star Wars Episode 9. That might sound ludicrous at first, but there are plenty of ways for Ewan McGregor to come back for the final installment of the Skywalker saga.

First of all, let’s just acknowledge that this rumor comes from The Sun, a notoriously gossipy tabloid. However, considering all the rumblings about Obi-Wan Kenobi’s return to the big screen and Ewan McGregor’s continued presence around the Star Wars saga, it doesn’t sound quite as unreasonable as you might think.

The details of what Ewan McGregor’s role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars Episode 9 might entail are almost non-existent. The Sun has merely heard from a source that McGregor will “secretly film” for the next Star Wars movie. So let’s talk about how this might be possible.
