Ewan McGregor wants to go on the record to clarify what’s going on with a possible Obi-Wan Star Wars spin-off, especially the fact that he’s not campaigning for it. Back in March, the actor spoke with our own Steve Weintraub and the conversation touched on Star Wars (of course), specifically about the possibility of an Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off.

At the time, McGregor said,

“I’d very much like to do one too. I think the story between Episode III and Episode IV, I think there’s a story there. I think that’s the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie, if there is one. The one that bridges my Obi-Wan Kenobi and Alec’s Obi-Wan Kenobi because there’s a—I don’t know how long he’s in the desert there, but it’s got to be twenty or thirty years.“

Unsurprisingly, fans ran with it because McGregor was a genuinely great part of the Star Wars prequels, and it’s a good idea. But in a new interview for the upcoming drama Last Days in the Desert, Collider’s own Christina Radish asked if he had heard any reaction from Lucasfilm after those spin-off comments, to which he replied:

“If they asked me to, I would be happy to. But it looks like I am campaigning for it, just because I get asked about it, all the time. So, I would like it to be known that I don’t bring it up, at these interviews, of my own free will. I only respond to questions I’m asked to. I don’t know anything about it. They’ve never approached me about it.”

It’s tricky, because McGregor does seem to genuinely be interested in it, but also is just a nice guy who doesn’t want to respond negatively or cryptically when asked about it in interviews. Completely understandable! So, we gotta simmer down, people. (Even though the idea for a movie is a great one and it’s kind of bizarre that there hasn’t been any movement on it).

We’ll have Christina’s full interview with McGregor soon, which includes more about American Pastoral (which he directed, and early word is that it’s great) and the status of the Trainspotting sequel, so stay tuned.
