    I looked it up nothing that would require a beard.

    With Joel Edgerton becoming a household name especially on the heels of Bright, letting him and Ewan play co-leads for a full film certainly doesn't seem farfetched as it would have been back in 2002 when Joel was a nobody.

    I was just going to post about this. It seems coincidental timing to start growing the beard and hair out, but then again, it may not be proof of anything. I did see some people speculating a role as Obi-Wan's ghost in IX also, but it seemed more speculation than anything.

    Glad he won the GG for Fargo (I tuned in as GdT won for Best Director - YAY! and then promptly buggered off.

    As far as Obi-Wan...bring it.

    Obi-Wan is steering a vehicle ferociously, while his co-pilot is talking on a comlink and reaching for a drink. Since they're both standing, this could be some sort of parcel delivery speeder, or perhaps a garbage barge. Or, maybe they're in a skiff rally.

    This probably means nothing and certainly is irrelevant in shooting terms (since that isn`t until next year) but he looks extremely Obi-Wan-ish.

    Now probably he`s doing some movie that needs that look but whatever.

    Force ghosts of three Jedi masters whose apprentices turned to the Dark Side, giving Rey pointers in IX. Yoda, Obi-Wan, Luke. Kind of like all three finally producing a Jedi who will really, truly restart a new Jedi order. Bring on MH, EMcG, the puppet in IX. :D Definite crowd pleaser.

    And then, in a year, we get a stand-alone Kenobi.

    How "official" is this Obi-wan film anyway?

    Since it's being reported by reliable trades like Hollywood Reporter, Variety and EW, despite not yet being official on the Star Wars site, I'd say official to a point, from a certain perspective.

    If they can ram in a pointless cameo for Ponda Baba and Dr Evizan in RO, surely they can do likewise for Obi-Wan in Solo? [face_laugh]

    I'm crossing fingers for the "beard theory" but as the rumors insist they will start shooting the movie in 2019, Ewan will have a very long beard before he actually needs to put on the Kenobi look[face_tee_hee]...

    If they're really going to make a Kenobi movie, Ewan McGregor should definitely be the one to play the role. At least if they place the plot between ROTS and ANH, which I personally hope they do. For very obvious reasons they can't use Sir Alec Guinness again and since Ewan played both Padawan Kenobi in TPM and Master Kenobi in the two other PT movies it would be really odd to see a third person in the role. After all they really put some effort into making Ewans Obi-Wan resembling Alec Guiness Obi-Wan, also physically.

    If they choose to make a story from pre-prequel time so to speak, they would have to find a younger Obi-Wan to play the role and even if they managed to find someone who could convince us that he really was the character, they would also have to find someone to play a younger Qui-Gon - thus double trouble.

    I think in New Hope you can infer that Obi Wan has at least a passing knowledge of Han. He knows he's a decent pilot. Ben knows the Tatooine space port scene.

    I can’t wait to learn how Ben knows about the cantina scene in his 19 years in hiding.

    Poor Ewan can't grow a beard for personal reasons and everyone assumes he's playing Obi-Wan again.
