Despite being billed as a ‘limited series’, Obi-Wan Kenobi actor Ewan McGregor says he is open to making another season of his upcoming Disney Plus show.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, McGregor said, "It was made as a one-off limited series. And in a way, it does do what I wanted it to do in terms of bridging a story between [Episode 3] and [Episode 4] and bringing me closer to Alec Guinness' Obi-Wan in A New Hope." He added, however, that he "would like to make another one."
Obi-Wan Kenobi series writer Joby Harold and director Deborah Chow are a little more reluctant to look beyond the six-episode event, which begins on May 27.
"Yeah, I don't know about it being a story beyond the story we're telling now. With these things, we always think of it as a complete story with the beginning and a middle and an end," Harold said.
In a similar vein, Chow said, "It was definitely conceived as a limited series and it is one big story with a beginning, middle, and end. So that's the way we've always approached it."
This is not the first time McGregor has spoken about an Obi-Wan return. In an interview with Total Film, he said: "If we were to get an opportunity to do it again, I’d be totally up for that."
Speaking to Total Film more recently, McGregor focused on the here-and-now in regards to Obi-Wan Kenobi’s upcoming journey.
"It was to start off with him in a very different place, to take this character that we know and love from Alec Guinness's performance in the 70s, to the work that I did through Episodes 1 to 3, this Jedi Master, and take him to a really broken place.”
A second season may not be in the works, but there’s plenty more coming to a galaxy far, far away. Here are all the upcoming Star Wars movies you should be looking forward to. Obi-Wan Kenobi arrives Friday, May 27, on Disney Plus.
