Ewan McGregor would love to be in the new Star Wars movie – but he doubts it will happen. At 42 years old, Ewan thinks he’s probably too young, and that – if Obi-Wan does indeed make an appearance in Episode VII – J.J. Abrams would be looking for someone closer to the age Alec Guinness was when he first donned the Jedi robes.
It only makes sense, since Obi-Wan would most likely appear as a Force ghost… and he didn’t have the benefit of becoming younger after he passed on – à la Hayden Christensen. However, there are still some reports stating that Ewan would be back as Obi-Wan’s Force ghost for Episode VII. Until Disney confirms or denies, it’s anyone’s guess at this point. Although, what Ewan says seems to make the most sense. What say you?
