Now, while the prospect of a "solo" movie may have millions of fans the world over cinematically salivating, and the imminent arrival of looks set to break up the wait for rather nicely, there are still some spin-off projects that we can't help but pine for. The idea of watching Boba Fett, Lando Calrissian or Yoda take to the screen once more has never quite faded from fans' minds, for instance, and yet they aren't the favored options of many devotees of a certain galaxy far, far away. After all, there's also to be considered.

And, as it just so happens, the perennially enthusiastic (who took over the role from Alec Guinness in the prequels) recently revealed that he's still very much interested in reprising the role — in two movies. That's right:

Ewan McGregor Is Hoping To Make Two Obi-Wan Solo Movies


Indeed, as he told the French magazine Premiere:

"I’ve always thought there was a story to tell between my last one and Alec Guinness’ first one... It would be fun to film that story now I’m older. I’d be the right age. I’m forty-five, Alec Guinness was what, sixty? I could do two of them!"

An idea which he then explored further while discussing the potential for further genre exploration within the universe:

"I hope that they’re going to explore different genres under the Star Wars banner. And one of those could be an Obi-Wan Kenobi feature film. Or two! The Obi-Wan Kenobi Story Part 1 and Part 2!"

Now, of course, McGregor's comments were all clearly intended to be taken lightly — he even made sure to note that no-one has approached him about playing Obi-Wan again, and that "it seems as though I’m begging for work!" — but it's still sorely tempting to imagine just how awesome an Obi-Wan solo movie (or two) could be.

Someone get that man a multi-picture deal, stat!

Still want more Obi-Wan Kenobi, though? Never fear, we've got you covered right here.

In the meantime, what do you think? Will we ever actually see an Obi-Wan solo movie? Let us know below!
