Ewan McGregor continues to express an interest in playing Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi in a Star Wars film. In an interview with MTV News (with his Jack the Giant Slayer co-star Stanley Tucci), he even had an idea about when the film could take place if it were a spin-off.
He said: "I think it's a good idea. The only bit that I could get away with doing is after the last one I made, 'Episode III,' before Alec Guinness, there's that period where he's in the desert. "
This would be the time after Episode III but before Episode IV when Obi Wan is living on Tattooine to watch over Luke Skywalker. It's unknown what he did in that period.
McGregor continued: "That might be my window, there, to tell that story. I don't know what he did in the desert. We could make up some stuff. Could be quite exciting. I'd be up for it, for sure, of course."
