Golden Globes: Ewan McGregor talks Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars spin-off!

Amidst all this, there is no project as clamored for and as practical as an Obi-Wan Kenobi solo film.

Though the prequels are usually regarded by a lot of fans with disdain, a lot of appreciation went to Ewan McGregor's portrayal of Obi-Wan. "But I don't know anything more than you do". In fact, thanks to the Prequel Trilogy, McGregor's Obi-Wan is most likely the more famous of the two, and the one many fans identify with the most.

Twitter went insane after users realised his facial hair could be a hint as to whether Disney will be making a standalone Obi-Wan film with him continuing his role of Obi-Wan. To our delight McGregor explains that he would be happy to dawn the Jedi robes and portray the iconic Jedi master once again on the silver screen, but admitted that despite his enthusiasm, he is just as in the dark about the project as we are.

Of course, there is an easy explanation for this: McGregor hasn't shaved in a while and the beard is nothing more than the byproduct of unkempt facial hair...but where's the fun in that?

Following rumos of an upcoming "Star Wars" spinoff centered around the character of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ewan McGregor is making it clear that he wouldn't say no if he was asked to play the famed Jedi in a movie once again. There's at the moment.

He added: "I saw the new one over Christmas".

One post appeared on Reddit, simply titled: "Tony Horton just posted a picture to his Facebook of Ewan McGregor doing P90X with an Obi-Wan beard and haircut". I kid, I kid.
