Sound the rumor alert again. The Latino Review is now saying that Ewan McGregor will be back for Episode VII. The assumption for the rumor is that he’ll be back as a Force Ghost since (spoiler alert) Obi-Wan died in A New Hope. The rumor also says that McGregor wants his own standalone film.
As per usual, take this rumor with a grain of salt. We already know that Ewan’s said he’d be happy to play Obi-Wan again if they ask him so it’s plausible but this is a looooong way from confirmed. However, like others, I don’t think we’d have any objections to an adaptation of Kenobi or a standalone film in general for Obi-Wan. But until it’s on StarWars.com, it’s just a rumor.
