As most of us are aware, a Han Solo film is being produced and is set to be released on May 25, 2018. Now a few months on how I was not completely onboard with the idea of a young actor replacing our beloved Harrison Ford, and instead appealed to the idea of a spin-of revolving around the great Jedi Knight, Obi Wan Kenobi.
While I'm still not sold on the Han Solo Spin-Off, and its more than likely going to happen, I have not given up on Ben!

Truth is I was begging to accept that there an Kenobi film sounded to far stretched until today when I stumbled upon a video that was uploaded on YouTube last week. That video was an interview with the one and only Ewan McGregor (Kenobi from the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy). Take a look for yourself.
From the very start of the video, the interviewer reflects on how many individuals (including myself), would love to see Ewan McGregor reprise his famous role in a stand alone movie.
Sure say what you would like about the prequels, and you may have already made your thoughts towards them very clear, but many fans will agree that McGregor was possibly the best thing about the prequel trilogy. Don't believe me? Then have a quick look at the comments.
Now I could keep on posting the comments of those who support McGregor starring in his Star Wars film but you can go ahead to the video itself and look for yourself.
Will the Prequel happen anytime soon? So far I do not have a clue, as McGregor isn't even allowed to discuss that.
No malice to the Han Solo prequel film. The Studio can go ahead and produce whatever they like, and I give them the best of luck, but in my honest opinion it will be foolish to not even consider this idea which I strongly believe will have a great outcome. Listen to the People Disney.
