Ever since Disney announced they’d be releasing Star Wars spinoff films, fans have wondered, What about Obi-Wan Kenobi? They’re not without reason, either. Ewan McGregor was hands down the best part of the troubled prequels, and the older he gets, the more he fits the role — and looks hauntingly similar to the late Sir Alec Guinness.
Earlier this year, the Scottish actor starred as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in Rodrigo Garcia’s meditative drama, Last Days in the Desert. In it, McGregor wanders the barren wastelands, clad in robes, staring around solemnly … so, you know, sort of like what Kenobi might do with his days on Tattooine. Well, naturally, one fan connected the dots.
And now we have a fun, snazzy teaser using Garcia’s film and pieces of the prequel trilogy to bring a Kenobi spinoff film to life. There’s admittedly some not-so-great CGI added in — namely one glaring superstar cameo towards the end — but it’s impressive stuff that might Force you to lobby for a legitimate film. Or, you could just revisit Episodes I-III.
We’re kidding! Watch the “teaser” above and catch Rogue One on December 16th.
