Ever since Disney bought Star Wars and announced more movies in the next few years, there has been crazy speculation over what said movies will be about. More Luke, Leia, and Han? Supporting character spinoffs? That seems the most likely—Boba Fett, Yoda, and Han Solo have all been mentioned.
Ewan McGregor who plays Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi in the prequels (Alec Guiness is Obi-Wan in the originals) says he is down for his own spinoff. Well of course he is! Even if these movies are bad they are going to make bank.
"I think it's a good idea," McGregor says. "Could be quite exciting. I'd be up for it, for sure, of course."
He's also still young enough (as opposed to say, Harrison Ford) to play his character with a bit of continuity. McGregor says it would make the most sense for a spinoff film to focus on Obi-Wan's time between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Could be interesting.
