Probably: Ewan McGregor officially returning as Obi-Wan Kenobi for a Disney+ series. Fuck yeah, dudes!
Ewan McGregor is either “in talks” or “certain” to return to the role of Obi-Wan for a Disney+ series, so yeah, this is happening. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the reveal is dropped at the upcoming D23.
Rumor: Ewan McGregor has signed on for Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+! Totally seriously this time, okay?
Ever since Disney bought Star Wars, one thing has been seemingly clamored for by everyone. That one thing? Some sort of return to Obi-Wan for Ewan McGregor. And, it seems like it’s finally happening. Finally! Sure.
‘Birds Of Prey’ casts Ewan McGregor as the Batman villain Black Mask. ‘Cause you nerds killed the Obi-Wan movie, probably
Most people know Ewan McGregor as The Only Good Thing About The Star Wars Prequels. Thus, the last few years have been spent wondering when the fuck he’s getting a solo movie. However, we still don’t fucking know! What we do know, though, is that he’s going to be the villain in the Birds of Prey movie.
Fargo hasn’t just cast Ewan McGregor for its third season. The (best) show has cast Obi-Wan for two roles, or more specifically, the dual-leads, playing two brothers. Fucking odd. Fucking fantastic. Fucking I am not going to make the wait for this show.
These days, Danny Boyle is putting the finishing touches on the upcoming Steve Jobbers flick. This means that the good sir is soon going to turn his All-Seeing-Camera-Eye (just own this shitty sentence, Caff, own it) on his next project. Which turns out! to be the talked about Trainspotting sequel.
This one has been kicked around for a while. An Obi-Wan trilogy, starring Ewan McGregor. Dope outlook: I like McGregor, and love the character. Pessimist outlook: Why are Disney and Lucasfilm not expanding the Star Wars mythos at all? Like, even if they want to keep milking the sore, swollen tits of established loves, can they supplement it with some exploration? Please?
Looks like Ewan McGregor could be fucking busy, fucking soon! Apparently the Bearded Force Babe may not just be collecting checks from the House of Mouse for an Obi-Wan trilogy. The son of a bitch is also being looked at for the role of Dr. Strange. Along with, you know, 75% of White Hollywood.
The whole gang is back! The whole fucking gang! It appears that Ewan McGregor (I’m going to choose to believe this report) will be returning as a Force Ghost in Episode VII. Me? I’m fine with this. Rendar? Definitely sporting a bulge in his skinny fit jeans. He’s been talking about wanting for for a while.
It’s a spectacular time to be a Star Wars fan.
George Lucas, perhaps after being visited by some benevolent omnidimensional sojourner, has sold his most beloved franchise. The moment that fans realized Lucas was finally out of the picture, we began to dream. To wonder. To flirt with the idea that the piss-taste that’s been lurking in our mouths since 2005 may very well be washed away. New Star Wars films could be treated with the respect they deserve.
So, what’ve we been promised thus far? A new trilogy. Kasdan and Kinberg. J.J. Abrams. Cameos from members of the original cast. The interest of Hollywood’s finest actors and directors and other personnel. Spin-off, stand-alone movies.
In short, we finally have a newer hope.
Yesterday’s confirmation of the stand-alone flicks was the final nail in the coffin for my cautious optimism. I am now, for the first time in years, reveling in full-on nerdlust at the thought of new Star Wars. And while I have quite a bit of faith that a new trilogy could be beyond excellent, I’ve always loved the idea of free-standing movies taking place within the galaxy that Uncle George introduced back in `77!
Join me as I take a moment to geek-out about the prospect of new Star Wars movies! I’m going to fanboy my way through some of the premises I’d like to see materialize, no doubt getting so excited that my retainer spills onto the keyboard and my Diet Shasta bubbles over. After you check out my ideas, hit up the comments section and describe what you’d like to see during our next voyages to a galaxy far, far away…
Punch it, Chewie!
