Ewan McGregor made an appearance at the Edinburgh Film Festival where he took place in a 90 minute interview on stage. Naturally the topic of Star Wars came up and McGregor discussed the possiblillity of him returning to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi which he played in Star Wars Episodes I-III. McGregor once again stated that he would be interested in doing another Star Wars film, particularly an Anthology film set between Episodes III and IV.
"I’ll say it publicly, here, now. I’d be happy to do the story between Episode 3, that I finished in, and Episode 4 that Alec Guinness started in. I think that would be good. Disney should definitely do that," McGregor said in a manner described by IndieWire as "half-quipping."
He also addressed The Force Awakens saying, "I’m excited about it as much as anyone else. I saw the trailer and it looks like he absolutely nailed it and it feels right. But I’m not sure about the [crossguard] lightsaber. If you fight with a lightsaber properly you don’t need one."
