After wrapping production on Star Wars: Episode 3 — Revenge of the Sith, Ewan McGregor thought he was out of the Obi-Wan Kenobi game for good. And he had good reason to think that — after all, Episode 3 completed the prequel trilogy, and Episode 4 famously featured Sir Alec Guinness in the role. But that was 18 years ago, long before Disney started producing spin-offs like Rogue One, Solo, and The Mandalorian. Now, of course, McGregor is back, starring in the Disney+ miniseries Obi-Wan Kenobi. Not only was he surprised to be offered the opportunity to play the character again, McGregor admitted to us, he was even more shocked that he said yes!
