No timeline or creative talent for the Kenobi project were revealed.
Kenobi is a central figure in the Star Wars mythos.
In the original 1977 movie, he is a desert-dwelling and war-weary hermit who later proves to be a wise and powerful warrior.
Kenobi briefly mentors a young Luke Skywalker before being cut down by Darth Vader, his former pupil.
The character also played a central role in the George Lucas-directed prequels, which recount the origin of Vader and his betrayal of Kenobi and the Jedis.
McGregor last starred in Disney’s live-action Winnie the Pooh movie, 2017’s Christopher Robin.
McGregor is repped by UTA and Sloane Offer. »
