Lucasfilm Ignoring Perfectly Good Ewan McGregor, Who Is Totally Down For That Obi-Wan Kenobi Flick


A few weeks back, a major rumor hit the net claiming that Disney and Lucasfilm were planning to announce an Obi-Wan Kenobi solo film starring Ewan McGregor at Star Wars Celebration, the continuation of a rumored Obi-Wan film that's been mutating for years. Star Wars Celebration has come and gone, and there's been no announcement, proving that you should never trust a rumor unless its mongered by our own Rich Johnston, and he personally saw Megan Fox purchase Poison Ivy comics.

All of that aside, the real question here is: why the hell didn't Disney announce an Obi-Wan Kenobi film? It certainly isn't Ewan McGregor's fault, as the star recently told Entertainment Weekly that he be "happy" to star in one.

There's no official offer, and I haven't met them about it or anything. But I've always said that I'd be happy to do it if they wanted to do it. It would be a good segue between the last episode of the prequels and the new episodes. I think they've got films to make until the 2020s, so I don't think it's going to happen soon if it happens at all.

There are a lot of exciting things coming up in the Star Wars universe over the next few years, but it does seem pretty silly that they've got a perfectly good Ewan McGregor willing to star in an Obi-Wan Kenobi film, and they just haven't bothered to talk to him about it. Get it together, Lucasfilm!

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
