In their newest endeavour into that Galaxy far, far away in the lead up to The Rise Of Skywalker, Zac, Ben and Jake revisit the film that started it all; Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.

Plus, Zac channels his inner Darth Vader, Ben goes into full conspiracy mode, and they all finish it off by revealing some new details about the #BBQWatch TV pilot they've been writing.

Rumor: Ewan McGregor Has Signed On To Return As Obi-Wan Kenobi (UPDATED!)

1 comments
By: Dominic Jones

UPDATE: Where there's smoke, there's probably fire.  Two Hollywood insider publications, with extensive track records of getting this sort of thing right, have weighed in on this story.  First, Deadline is corroborating Cinelinx's original report that McGregor has signed on to reprise the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi for a live action series on Disney+.  Meanwhile, The Holywood Reporter stops slightly shorter than Deadline or Cinelinx, reporting that McGregor is "in negotiations to reprise the role in a Kenobi-centered series for Disney+."  Obviously, we'll all be watching this story develop with great interest.

ORIGINAL STORY:
Another happy landing. We may be on the verge of seeing Star Wars prequels star Ewan McGregor return to the galaxy far, far away in the not too distant future. Cinelinx is reporting that McGregor has signed on for a new Star Wars project, which is believed to be a new live action series coming to the Disney+ streaming service, which launches later this year.  Cinelinx editor-in-chief Jordan Maison also speculates that the timing of the deal being signed may have to do with Disney wanting to announce the project at D23 Expo, which kicks off in just over a week in Anaheim.
