    Thirded.

    I really think there would be a riot if they don't hire him to be Obi-Wan. It's kind of sweet, he may had some issues with the scripts/way George worked but he has always clearly adored playing Obi-Wan Kenobi. He's just so perfect in the role.

    There would totally be a riot. Disney would probably get more hate mail than NBC when the original series of Star Trek was cancelled. Probably more than FOX when they cancelled Firefly.

    If Ewan doesn't get hired for the role Obi-Wan, I can swear to every single God there are in this world that I would personelly lead a protest, that for darn sure! [face_devil][face_devil][face_devil] He's the only actor I recognise as Obi-Wan beside Sir Alec. :obiwan::obiwan::ben::ben:

    ...and I would be the first to sign the protest. There simply aren't any other Obi-Wans than those two.

    I think it would be ridiculous to cast someone else in the role, considering Ewan McGregor is Obi-Wan Kenobi in everyone's mind, and he's a perfect age.

    P.S. I'm surprised I've only just found this thread. Hey, Kenobi fans!

    Duh. As essential as having Mark Hamil as Luke. Fingernails on chalkboard to have anyone else. :p

    Hey there, Kenobi fanatics! The only SW film I'm waiting for now is the "Kenobi" film. I don't know why is LFL dragging their heels on this. I mean, we have nothing on the slate in 2020. Perfect slot for "Kenobi". But so long as the filmmaker takes his/her time to do the film, I guess it's all worth it. Been waiting for a "Kenobi" film since ROTS ended in 2005. And I also remember ROTS being billed as the final Star Wars film. Boy, those were the days...

    Do you guys really believe that him growing a beard means anything? It is much to early.

    Clearly, people, the beard is meant as a statement to The Powers That Be.

    I wonder what would happen if people started posting pics of themselves with Obi-Wan's beard Photoshop on their faces. #Beard Me #Go Beard Or Go Home #The Beard Abides

    What do y'all think? Could we make this thing happen with Meme Power?

    Let me hear what y'all think. Or just totally ignore that because it's way too late here, and tired brains barf craziness.

    • Nope, the realistic me states that the poor man must be allowed to grow a beard without a lot of maniacs (= us and media people) creating speculations about it. [face_thinking]
    • The imaginative me concludes that if this is his "Obi-Wan beard" for the "Kenobi" film we may have an Obi-Wan that can easily be confused with Santa Claus before the film is in the making, soooooo of course the beard means that they're going to use him in some kind of flashback scene in Episode IX or even in "Solo" O:).
    • The hopeful me is crossing fingers and hoping that they're already casting for "Kenobi" without the media knowing it [face_praying]
    Only time will show which one of the "me's" is winning my internal battle.

    And, truly, a year of pre-production, a year of filming, a year of post-production ... if they want to give us a Kenobi film in 2020, they seriously do have to hurry. ;)

    Well, just rewatched the Mandalore Plot arc in season 2 of Clone Wars again. Damn, it's still so good. Satine & Obi-Wan forever. =)

    Maul should have just stay dead. Glad he finally bit the dust in Twin Suns. That was one badass move from Obi.

    That was powerful. Not only was it the sound minimalist strategy of a true master but it shows how deeply his master's death was ingrained on him. He remembered exactly how Qui Gon was killed and he used that to bait Maul.

    One of my least favorite things in the Clone Wars was the resurrection of Maul, that was just dumb IMO.

    If they, please god, make an Obi-Wan movie, please god with Ewan McGregor, that is definitely something they should NOT use in it IMO, resurrected Maul.

    Agree, in all statements above. The resurrected Maul was a...wait...what...moment. If you're cut in two, you're dead - even if you're a sith apprentice.
