Ewan McGregor teases young Luke Skywalker in Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries: it’s very possible


After years and years of waiting, Ewan McGregor is finally returning to play Obi-Wan Kenobi in theStar warsgalaxy. Disney and Lucasfilm are gearing up for the Obi wan kenobi Limited edition Disney +, which should start running overnight, if it hasn’t already. One question that has lingered is whether or not a young Luke Skywalker will appear on the show or not. McGregor has now weighed in on this issue and, while playing shyly, hasn’t ruled it out.

Ewan McGregor, who played the famous Jedi in the Star wars prequel trilogy, was recently the subject of an in-depth profile article. Naturally, the subject ofObi wan kenobi has come. The actor was questioned at close range about the inclusion of a young Luke Skywalker in the series. The actor reportedly smiled and responded as follows.

“It’s very possible. I don’t know.”

It seems fair to assume, regardless of how much secrecy is in place at Lucasfilm, that Ewan McGregor does indeed know if Luke is going to appear on the show. This is the same man who had to lie about returning as Obi-Wan for years until the project was officially announced. Given how serious Disney and Lucasfilm are about keeping things a secret for Star wars projects, the fact that McGregor did not categorically deny it is significant enough.

The inclusion of Luke Skywalker would make a lot of sense. The show will resume ten years after the events of Revenge of the Sith. We’ll probably be taking Obi-Wan back on Tatooine. As we know from Star Wars: A New Hope, Obi-Wan had watched over Anakin Skywalker’s son from a distance before Mark Hamill’s Luke found himself in the midst of the Rebellion-Empire war. Even if it’s from a distance, it stands to reason that Luke would introduce himself to some extent. As for who could bring a young Luke Skywalker to life? This is a whole other question.

Obi-Wan Kenobi will bring several important characters from the past back to Disney +. Most notably, Hayden Christensen, who played Anakin Skywalker in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, is back, this time as Darth Vader. Additionally, Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse will return as Owen and Beru, Luke’s aunt and uncle. Moses Ingram (The Queen’s Gambit), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley), Indira Varma (Game Of Thrones), Rupert Ami (Country), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Long Shot), Sung Kang (Fast Furious), Simone Kessell (Account) and Benny Safdie (Good time) complete the cast.

Deborah Chow, who directed several episodes of The Mandalorian, runs the show, which was billed as a limited series. Originally the idea was to bring Ewan McGregor back for a movie, but once Solo: A Star Wars Story failed to deliver at the box office, those plans have changed. It’s not yet clear when Obi-Wan Kenobi will arrive on Disney +, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted as more details become available. This news comes to us via The Hollywood Reporter.
