Will Ewan McGregor play Obi-Wan in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'?
Is the Force still with Ewan McGregor?
The latest in a continuing series of rumors posits that the "Star Wars" vet will reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in J.J. Abrams' upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII."
Presumably, Kenobi will appear a ghost the same way Sir Alec Guinness continued to play the role in "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi" after the character's death in the original 1977 film.
The Latino Review report also suggests that McGregor is also keen on starring in a standalone film featuring a young Kenobi.
Needless to say, this is purely a rumor for now and certainly nothing has been confirmed, but McGregor's inclusion would make sense and would help to tie the new films together with both the original trilogy and the prequels.
McGregor played a younger version of Guinness' Kenobi in the three "Star Wars" prequels -- 1999's "The Phantom Menace," 2002's "Attack of the Clones" and 2005's "Revenge of the Sith."
Original trilogy stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill are reportedly returning to the franchise, which will likely also feature a younger primary cast.
"Star Wars: Episode VII" is scheduled for release summer 2015.
