Obi-Wan Kenobi Throws Some Weak Ass Punches

Ewan McGregor arrives at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards. More

Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor have a lot in common. Among the rumored ones are a Boba Fett movie, a younger Master Yoda project, and even an underground Jabba the Hutt adventure. The actor has been very complimentary about the new Star Wars franchise, even the hotly debated film, The Last Jedi. Since then, fans have been speculating about whether original prequel star Ewan McGregor may return to don the Jedi's robes.

McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi.

He took to Instagram and Facebook with a photo of Ewan McGregor working out with Scott Fifer, with the Star Wars actor sporting a familiar-looking beard.

McGregor took home a Golden Globe last night for his performance in Fargo, but the press backstage couldn't help but ask the actor how he felt about reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a future Star Wars film.

He accompanied it with a humorous artwork of a sketch showing Carrie, who passed away suddenly a year ago, in robes and a crown, carrying a French bulldog in one hand as she stuck up the middle finger of the other. There were reports in August that Stephen Daldry was in early talks to direct. Rumors started again after a post on social media revealed McGregor training with a familiar beard.

Meanwhile Chris Lucas said: "Obi-Wan is doing P90X and the force is with him!" The Gareth Edwards-directed Rogue One underwent reported massive reshoots and even story-rewrites, while previous year Solo: A Star Wars Anthology experienced a major shake-up when original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired three weeks before principal photography was scheduled to conclude, prior to director Ron Howard stepping in.
