Ewan McGregor Open To Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2

After rising suspicions on a Season 2, Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi lead actor Ewan McGregor actually says he would love to.

Comicbookmovie.com reports that the actor together with co-actor Hayden Christensen and director Deborah Chow answered speculations for season 2.

Approaching the final episode of the mini series, highly satisfied fans of the franchise are wanting to see more. Besides, the life of Obi-Wan Kenobi during the years between Episodes III and IV  still have much to tell.

Even though they did not plan to have a sequel series, the director herself expressed that it isn’t impossible. She explains:

You know, we always did conceive of this as a limited series. So it’s not an adventure-of-the-week sort of story. It’s one big story with a beginning, middle and end. So I think this story was very much conceived to be its own standalone.

I mean, there are of course more stories that you could tell. There’s obviously another 10 years before we get to A New Hope and with a character like Obi-Wan Kenobi, I think even just watching him ride across the sand sometimes is interesting. So, who knows? It’s hard to say right now, but it was not the intention.

Following up on her train of though she says:

Honestly, at this point, the only thing I’m thinking about is taking vacation. I haven’t gotten there. I can’t even conceive of it yet. I just need to actually finish the show to get there first.

Should there actually be a project for a Season 2, there indeed has to be a time for a breather. Especially for everyone closely involved. Nevertheless, the series leads Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen have both favorable responses to the possibility. Fans would be happy to know that Kenobi actor says:

I hope it’s not the last time I play him. I had such a great time doing this, I’m sure we can think of a few more stories before I turn into Alec Guinness, don’t you think?

To which, Darth Vader actor seconded with:

I would love to continue with this character. You know, I think there’s certainly more there to explore and I would be so excited to get to do so.

There are, however, fans who may not be too keen on getting a sequel series. Simply because the studio will have to be closed off in other story possibilities to keep the series canon. Although, there are those that also want to see if Kenobi engaged in other adventurous tasks before he turns into “Alec Guinness.” There is also wonder if the series will also cover the ability to connect the Physical Force in communication with the Spiritual Force. Perhaps episode 6 will get us there.
