File this under "Uhhhh, nope" if you like but Nerdist are asking if Obi-Wan Kenobi might appear in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Check out the video below and consider their point...
Ewan McGregor has been seen at some Star Wars events and has been talking about Star Wars a lot lately, with the beard and the recent images of Ewan in training could be seen as a sign that he is getting ready to shoot a new movie, and there have been whispers that an Obi-Wan movie is in the works, possibly with Stephen Daldry onboard as director, so could that new movie be Obi-Wan a Star Wars Story? Or could Disney/Lucasfilm be getting ready to drop an Obi-Wan cameo into Solo: A Star Wars Story? I'm not sure I buy into the latter theory. In fact I think it might do more harm than good featuring the exiled Jedi in the Solo movie when the two characters meet for the first time a few years later. Wouldn't it be the Alec Guinness version of Obi-Wan we would need here?
No. To my mind this doesn't work, but I am starting to get excited that perhaps Ewan is gearing up for either the Obi-Wan Kenobi stand alone film, or my preferred option, an Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series for Disney's new streaming service.
Another potential returnee is Qui-Go Jinn. Liam Neeson, who is doing the press for The Commuter at the moment, mentioned the possibility of his return to Star Wars -
How would you feel about getting Liam and Ewan back together to explore the Jedi Knight's time in exile on Tatooine as he waits for Luke to come of age? Wouldn't it be interesting to see Yoda, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan discussing Luke potential, or even Leia's potential (we know Yoda preferred Leia as an option) as the one who can destroy the Sith and return peace to the galaxy?
