Ewan McGregor heeft zich onlangs uitgelaten over zijn rol als Obi-Wan Kenobi in het Star Wars-universum. Dit gebeurde tijdens Edinburgh International Film Festival. De acteur geeft aan graag nog eens Obi-Wan Kenobi te spelen: “I’ll say it publicly, here, now. I’d be happy to do the story between Episode 3, that I finished in, and Episode 4 that Alec Guinness started in. I think that would be good. Disney should definitely do that.”

Ook kijkt hij uit om de film te zien: “I’m excited about it as much as anyone else. I saw the trailer and it looks like he absolutely nailed it and it feels right. But I’m not sure about the [crossguard] lightsaber. If you fight with a lightsaber properly you don’t need one. […] It’s not a fanatical thing. I’m really pleased I’m part of the legacy of it and happy to see it and I’ve seen the trailer and it looks like they’ve absolutely nailed it.”

McGregor’s is momenteel bezig met de opnames van Bill Condon’s live-action remake van Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, welke in 2017 te zien is. In de film speelt hij de rol van de zingende kandelaar Lumiere.
