    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.
