Does Leaked Ewan McGregor Photo Confirm The Obi-Wan 'Star Wars' Spin-Off?

Does Leaked Ewan McGregor Photo Confirm The Obi-Wan 'Star Wars' Spin-Off?

But Star Wars fans eager for any news pertaining to his most iconic role noticed both the fair atop his head and his facial hair bore a strong resemblance to that of Obi-Wan Kenobi in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.

McGregor, who won at the awards ceremony for his performance in FX's Fargo, added that he saw The Last Jedi.

The first interviewer asked him about the current status of the oft-rumored Obi-Wan movie and his wishes to be involved in the project, should it come to life. McGregor was spotted working out while rocking a beard, and people called it Jedi training.

Everyone's best guess is that it will be the spinoff movie centered on Obi-Wan Kenobi; and interestingly enough, it seems that Ewan McGregor has started preparing for the role.

One post appeared on Reddit, simply titled: "Tony Horton just posted a picture to his Facebook of Ewan McGregor doing P90X with an Obi-Wan beard and haircut". Other reports have gone as far as to claim a movie has already been greenlight, and will have a 2019 release date. Still, knowing McGregor is happy to reprise the role has got us feeling at least a bit hopeful!

That would leave the roughly 20 years between the events of Episode III and the original "Star Wars: A New Hope" to explore. The actor has been very complimentary about the new Star Wars franchise, even the hotly debated film, The Last Jedi. "I thought it was attractive", he said.

He was marvelous in both his roles as Emmit and Ray Stussy in Fargo this past year, but immediately upon answering questions for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association as part of his Q&A duties as an award victor, he was mentioned for his work as Obi-Wan Kenobi in less than 15 seconds.
