Ewan McGregor wants Disney to make two ‘Star Wars’ spin-off movies focused on his character, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi. 


The Scottish actor played the Jedi Knight in all three of George Lucas’ ‘Star Wars’ prequels but insists there’s room for at least two spin-off films about the character – brought to life by Alec Guinness in the original 1977 ‘Star Wars’ – and he’s already thought up a title.

He said: “I’ve always thought there was a story to tell between my last one and Alec Guinness’s first one. I’d be the right age. I’m 45, Alec Guinness was what, 60? I could do two of them! The Obi-Wan Kenobi Story Part 1 and Part 2.”


He previously mused the plot could focus on the time period between ‘Episode III’ and ‘Episode IV,’ when Obi-Wan is hiding from Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine and the Empire.

The star might get his wish as ‘Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens’ director J.J. Abrams recently revealed there are “exciting” times ahead for fans of the franchise.

However, the franchise already has five further movies, two trilogies and a hat-trick of spin-offs planned and executives are reportedly discussing another quintet of the sci-fi motion pictures for after 2020.
