Even Ewan McGregor Doesn’t Know If He’s Coming Back to ‘Star Wars’
If one thing’s for certain, it’s that Disney productions are tight-lipped affairs. Lucasfilm movies, Marvel flicks—these things are made under lock and key. So if you happen to ask people affiliated with those franchises, don’t be surprised if the answers they give are less than definitive.
Take, for example, Ewan McGregor, the man who played young Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels. For months, rumors have circulated that the actor might reprise his role in a future film, but when he was asked about it during a WIRED Autocomplete Interview, his answer was one big shrug emoji. “Who knows,” he replied. “I really don’t know. I’m not sure. I’d like to!”
The same is true for his Christopher Robin costar Hayley Atwell, who was able to offer up a big “Not that I know of!” when asked if she was going to be in an upcoming Avengers movie. This, of course, seems far more likely to be true considering her Agent Peggy Carter is technically dead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But with movies based on comics, who knows?!
