Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2: Ewan McGregor Still Holding Out Hope Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2: Ewan McGregor Still Holding Out Hope
Star Wars actor Ewan McGregor is still hoping for a second season of his hit series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and he’s not alone.
Ewan McGregor’s Desire for a Second Season
During a panel at MegaCon Orlando 2024, McGregor talked about the Obi-Wan Kenobi series and its transition from a movie. He also reaffirmed his desire for a second season, asking attendees to write to Disney to get the project greenlit.
“There was originally gonna be a movie, and I’ve often thought, should it have been a movie? But I kinda think it’s great that they did it that way, and it’s a longer story, and hopefully it’s more satisfying as a result. We got more time to weave a story. Let’s hope they do another one. Can everyone write to Disney?”
Fan Support for Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2
The crowd’s enthusiastic response made it clear that McGregor is not alone in his wish for Lucasfilm and Disney to continue Obi-Wan‘s story during the Dark Times of the Star Wars timeline.
Challenges to a Second Season
While there is demand for a possible Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2, it’s hard to know if it will ever actually happen. Lucasfilm is currently focused on returning to movie theaters with The Mandalorian & Grogu and other theatrical releases.
Potential for an Obi-Wan Kenobi Movie
If an Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 doesn’t happen, Lucasfilm could still make an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie set after the series but before the events of A New Hope.
More Stories to Tell
There are certainly more stories to be told during Kenobi‘s exile protecting young Luke Skywalker, especially with Obi-Wan having reconnected with the Force at the end of the first season.
Ewan McGregor’s Star Wars Journey
McGregor has played Obi-Wan Kenobi in three Star Wars prequel films and the recent Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+. He has also spoken out about the negative reviews that the prequel films received.
The future of Obi-Wan Kenobi on screen is uncertain, but Ewan McGregor and fans around the world are hoping for a second season.
