    So Ewan McGregor did an ask me anything on reddit and he ignored every star wars question. So this could be because he is under an NDA from Disney and he will be in a future star wars film?

    Excellent example of the truism "whenever a headline poses a question, the answer is always 'no'"

    If Ewan ignored every Star Wars question, it could be because of any of these reasons:

    1: He is going to reprise the role of Obi-Wan, and has been asked to avoid discussing Star Wars publicly until an appropriate time
    2: He would like to reprise the role of Obi-Wan, so feels its best not to discuss Star Wars publicly with fans because he knows he almost burned bridges a while back
    3: He gets asked about Star Wars all the time, and doesn't want to engage with adult Star Wars fans - he considers Star Wars a family/kids film, and he's not in it for the fandom aspect at all, and prefers to discuss the films about which he feels there is something of substance to discuss

    Argh; edited title means this no longer makes sense

    Most likely option - Is doing the AMA for TS2 hype and is currently in the mood to specifically talk about it and other indie-project-related things he's interested in. I mean, I hope it's #1, but I highly doubt it.

    Based on previous interviews I've heard of his the answer is not 2 or 3, but as Big Bad Yoda Daddy pointed out there is a fourth option that the AMA had a specific subject, and he didn't want to derail it by going down the inevitable rabbit hole of Star Wars. Since usually the least conspiratorial answer is the correct answer my guess is the correct answer is option 4.

    That's me told.

    Sounds about right, to be fair.

    The question is, how do we get Ewan to devote the next 19 years of his life to the project?

    There's no point in making an Obi-Wan film. He's supposed to be the errant knight watching over the chosen one – not some risk taker galavanting through the galaxy while risking exposing himself. The key to his mission is laying low...and that could only mean not using the Force as much as possible and not getting involved in other people's matters, as well.

    Well, we've seen from Rebels and the comics that some threats have indeed come to Tatooine and endangered Luke. I think a movie where he not only had to save Luke, but ALSO had to keep his cover and not let Luke know he was being protected (in addition to not bringing Luke into suspicion from onlookers) would be an interesting story.

    I'd actually love an Obi-Wan film. After reading the book Kenobi a few years back, I had thought back then that it would've been great to see that as a movie. IMO there's enough he could be doing on Tatooine to qualify for an interesting film, as IMO that book proves. Regarding a point you mentioned @DARTHVENGERDARTHSEAR, I would feel the whole "Obi-Wan trying not to expose himself and/or reveal his Force powers" thing could actually make for an interesting plot point. Wouldn't mind seeing a young Luke either...And now that spinoffs are actually a thing-and also after seeing him in Rebels recently, I would love to see an Obi-Wan Kenobi film taking place sometime during the post ROTS, pre ANH period.

    Honestly at this point, I wouldn't be surprised to find out it will actually happen. Maybe not as soon as the coming 3rd spinoff or anything, but maybe after the ST is completed. Could I do without it? Of course-I could go either way. But then again, we could kinda say that with all of these spinoffs really...

    It's possible but there are already scenes in the ongoing Marvel Comics that show him on Tatooine and he shows up in

    Season 3 of Star Wars Rebels and kills Maul.
    Don't know what else could be explored between the trilogies. Seeing him pre-TPM could be interesting though.

    It makes a lot of sense and will make a lot more money for Disney to make this film.

    Ewan at the perfect natural age and was the consensus bright spot from the unpopular prequels. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I am not aware of any cannon (not that it would matter) that declares obi never left tattoine from the end of 3 to a new hope. Lots they could do in that timeframe

    Enough of that Obi-Wan stuff, Dave Filoni made enough propaganda for Obi-Wan fanboys so no...

    And he doesn't necessarily have to leave Tattooine to make an interesting movie.

    ...or he made an episode of Rebels that not only paid respect to the character of Obi-Wan, but also brought a justified end to the story of Darth Maul.

    One or the other I suppose.
    Though I have a hard time understanding what "propaganda" would even mean in this context.

    Not sure if this is a spoiler from the Rebels or not since this is a different forum so I will use the spoiler tag.

    Maul could die with fighting Vader in Malachor, in a prolonged duel, with a respectable way like his favorite pet Ahsoka did.
    Maul could die in some accident, or he could die because of many reasons, like trying another trick to destroying the Empire like he did in Malachor, but no, once again Kenobi had to show up and end Maul's story, and not to mention the style of the duel ? He says it's an homage to the Seven Samurai but not every SW follower would watch the recon videos and they don't always read the interviews, so how could they know ? And Filoni knows that very well, so it's a disgusting way to finish Maul and it has no other purpose other than satisfying the Obi-Wan fans. He hates Maul from the beginning and the only thing that stopping him was George Lucas, and with the Rebels he did what he wanted, killing Maul with a disrespectful way.

    Yeah, Rebels season 3 spoilers:

    This isn't really the place for this discussion, but I will say that just because you don't agree with the creative choices made doesn't mean that it was disrespectful or that Filoni "hates the character". Neither was it done just to "satisfy the Obi-Wan fans". As a big Maul fan, I was more than satisfied with the conclusion to that particular story arc, and I know many others were as well.

    Oh, and that Samurai movie homage was quite obvious, even if one doesn't watch Rebels Recon.

    We don't really need him for an Obi-Wan movie. It would be neat but Disney has shown they are just fine shelving any actor (or even character) pre-Disney.

    I'd watch 2 hours of Ewan as Obi-Wan even if he was just sitting in the sand!
