Not only did Ewan McGregor get to do a little voice work for the latest Star Wars installment, but when asked in a recent interview about the future of his Prequel Trilogy character, the actor also admitted he would love to play the character again in a stand-alone movie.
To play Obi-Wan Kenobi again would be something I would love to do in one of the spinoff movies.
You can watch his interview below (linked from Collider):
I ran it by everyone in the editorial chatroom. Beaks, Merrick, Quint, Capone… everyone… and they rattled their sources cages – and couldn’t get confirmation… BUT tonight… a source that I’m told to call Col. Mustard claimed completely on his own that “the working title” was THE ANCIENT FEAR….
He also stated that “it refers to Max Von Sydow’s villain who makes Pazuzu look like a pussy!”
With no official confirmation, this title is just a rumor, but as a pulp-style title, ‘The Ancient Fear’ fits right in with titles such as ‘The Phantom Menace’, ‘Attack of the Clones’, and ‘The Empire Strikes Back’.
