Starwars lovers and fans of Obi-Wan Kenobi have been fixated on the alleged StarWars spinoff movie that is supposed to be in pre-production. If it is, then lets just hope it’s not another Solo film ☹
However, a new rumour has reared its head claiming we will be seeing Ben Kenobi way before that.
While many have expected Ewan McGregor to return to play Obi-Wan if any spinoff movie is actually happening, this new rumour claims that McGregor is actually set to return to the role in Star Wars Episode IX. Its great news but I’m not sure I can take another StarWars film after the Last Jedi, it took me a week to stop crying about it.
While this news is rather large, if it does turn out to be true, then it really should be taken with the purest grain of high quality sea salt you can find. After all, this is a rumour, and from an unnamed source, that has been reported by the “Current Bun” (the good old Sun Newspaper), and while that doesn’t mean it’s not true, it also doesn’t mean that it is in any way true and confirmed.
But, the source does claim that Mr. McGregor is set to “secretly” (although not anymore, apparently haha) start film for the next episode of the Star Wars movies (OMG Episode 9) and not the Obi-Wan spinoff that has been whispered to be the next Star Wars origins movie to follow the current trilogy.
