All the hype about Star Wars making its triumphant return to the big screen is worth it if they do an Obi-Wan film! MTV News sat down with McGregor and his Jack the Giant Slayer co-star Stanley Tucci during a press event for the new film, and the former Obi-Wan Kenobi shared his thoughts on a possible spin-off movie.
“I think it’s a good idea,” McGregor said of getting his own film. The only bit that I could get away with doing is after the last one I made ‘Episode III,’ before Alec Guinness, there’s that period where he’s in the desert.” This would be after Anakin Skywalker’s transformation into Darth Vader and before Luke Skywalker meets Old Ben Kenobi. What he did while watching over Luke while he grew up is still a mystery that would great to be explored on screen. “That might be my window, there, to tell that story,” McGregor said. “I don’t know what he did in the desert. We could make up some stuff.” No matter what they cook up, it would great to have McGregor back into the role. He was a shining spotlight in the beginning Star Wars saga. Props: MTV
