No details on the upcoming Star Wars series for Disney Plus have been revealed. Disney and Lucasfilm didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Fans will remember McGregor as the younger version of Obi-Wan in the Star Wars prequel movies: The Phantom Menace (1999), Attack of the Clones (2002) and Revenge of the Sith (2005).
Most recently, McGregor also returned as Obi-Wan in a voice-only cameo in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).
