    Well let's get this thing rolling shall we? He hasn't yet been officially announced but there's little doubt McGregor will return to portray the exiled Jedi Master. So let's discuss!

    I really hope we'll get a sense of Kenobi still struggling with the aftermath of everything that happened in ROTS, especially the fight on Mustafar, and maybe even questioning whether his mission on Tatooine is worth it.

    Obi Wan invites a certain death stick dealer to his hut on Tatooine, to rethink their lives... (A deep and philosophical movie)

    Dammit, I thought this was a thread about some official confirmation of his casting. :(

    But, uh, *ahem* yes I too would love for him to return.

    Oh I don't know.

    Kenneth Branagh can still pull it off if need be.

    :D

    Also rolling around in the dirt like AG did to work his costume in.

    In the history of the world there has never been a more perfect time for an actor to reprise his role.....

    Absolutely yes. It's very early stages, so the movie is just a concept at this point. Ewan will be back. This is the standalone film I desperately want to see.

    Honestly, this film could potentially become my favorite Star Wars film of all time. I've always been fascinated by the concept of Ben Kenobi living on Tattooine all that time, wondering what he got up to.

    I would go with a Harrison Ford recast. That's probably why they killed off Han.

    George Lucas mentioned I Rolling Stone the possibility of if young Kenobi movie. This was in 1977.

    Obi-Wan is by far my favorite character, but I don't know about a solo movie. They'd better do a good job with it.

    Yeah I think this would be an excellent setup basically having the film work as the journey of the character from cynical and battle scared after ROTS towards the man Luke meets in ANH. You do that well and I don't think whatever task he's presented with really needs to be all that significant ion terms of the wider mythology, just dealing with some gangsters and/or lower level Imperials would IMHO be enough.

    I would especially like to see the conflict with Owen Lars, and maybe some kind of visit with Yoda. Surely they will fit in some kind of adventure that puts him right back at Tatooine. Officially, just going by "Revenge of the Sith," we don't know if he stayed on Tatooine after dropping Luke off with the Lars. He might have left before returning.

    I can't really see Yoda featuring tbh. Liam Neeson lending his voice to play Qui-Gonn in maybe a couple meditation scenes, definitely. Who knows, maybe the film will have a spaghetti western type vibe? With Obi playing the 'man with no name' type.
