A new hope! Ewan McGregor up for 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Season 2 as he looks forward 'to do it again'
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: After the commencement of Disney Plus, the growth of several of fans' favourite franchises have space to expand further and the 'Star Wars' franchise is one among them. Disney Plus has launched several newer content for the universe that notably include 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' and 'Mandalorian'. And in a recent interview, the 'Obi-wan Kenobi' star Ewan McGregor opened up about the hope he is having regarding a possibility of a newer season for the show.
Season 1 of 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' follows the story of the eponymous Jedi Master, 10 years after the events of the 'Revenge of the Sith'. Obi-Wan is now in Tattooine, watching over Luke Skywalker, while he is being dragged out in order to save Princess Leia Organa, who is being kidnapped by the Inquisitor of the Galactic Empire. This show sees the return of Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Hayden Christensen as the Darth Vader.
During a recent interview with the Disney Studios Awards, McGregor and Hayden opened up about their return to the franchise. While speaking about the preparation for the role, McGregor said there wasn't any major adjustment to be made and opened up about watching all of the Star Wars films and getting reminded of several funny, off-screen moments.
During the conversation, McGregor went on to note how the series bridges the gap between the two trilogies. He remarked on his happiness about returning to the franchise and working with Hayden, and even added that he hopes to do it again, hinting at a new season.
"I was so happy to do it again and so happy to work with Hayden again, and I hope we get the chance to do it again," he said.
'Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith' was the last movie in which both the actors played the iconic parts on screen together. And it had been 18 years since we last saw the characters on screen with the spinoffs. And during this time period, there have been several movies and shows have been released, building the franchise even further. And it is safe to say that more content about Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi will explore more details on their journey if season 2 is confirmed.
You can rewatch season 1 of 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' on Disney Plus.
