Is This Classic Character Returning.. Somehow.. for Star Wars Episode IX?by 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

We’ve been covering a fair bit of ground when it comes to the Star Wars saga lately – and why not? The series has recently celebrated a landmark birthday (40 years), and not one but two separate instalments in the ongoing franchise have been released in the past year. One of them, The Last Jedi, cleared up rather well at the box office yet remains split critically with the fanbase, while the other – Solo, a prequel – is reportedly going to lose around $50 million worldwide. This is unprecedented – and very disappointing if it’s set to be true – and it’s led to all sorts of rumors online that Disney and Lucasfilm will be scaling back their efforts when it comes to future prequels, some of which had already been greenlit and even announced. This means, unfortunately, you’re going to have to wait a while if you ever want to see what Boba Fett did before The Empire Strikes Back – but when it comes to Obi-Wan Kenobi fans, hope may still be out there, albeit in a rather different form.

Ewan McGregor, who played Kenobi in Episodes I – III, has long been open to a return to the saga if the shoe fits, and according to certain press outlets, the actor may be looking at filming scenes in secret to appear in Episode IX. The character supposedly ceased to be at the end of the very first movie – but his presence has been felt in the future instalments – and as the late Sir Alec Guinness is sadly no longer with us to be able to resurrect the character, it makes sense that – if Kenobi is to come back at all – it’ll be down to McGregor to go about it. Quite how Episode IX will play out – particularly as there will largely be the new generation of characters left – remains to be seen, and it’ll also be some time before we find out whether there is any truth behind this latest rumor. Could this be a surprise cameo that is being saved for the final dramatic few scenes in the trilogy concluder?

Star Wars’ current trilogy has its fans and its detractors – but for Disney, there’s no denying that the series was a major financial coup, with box office money continuing to roll in – despite Solo’s reported and apparent failure to pull rank.
