Ewan McGregor asked about Obi-Wan film, sporting Kenobi-esque beard

Do you want to see McGregor return as Obi-Wan Kenobi?

And now fitness trainer Tony Horton has provided another interesting nugget for us to all mull over - potentially alluding to something exciting involving Ewan McGregor, a.k.a. Jedi LAD Obi-Wan Kenobi.

And the new pic has led many to believe that Ewan might be getting ready to head back to the sci-fi franchise.

Twitter went insane after users realised his facial hair could be a hint as to whether Disney will be making a standalone Obi-Wan film with him continuing his role of Obi-Wan. Now, this could mean he is preparing to once again play Obi-Wan, or it could just be a coincidence.

Of course, there is an easy explanation for this: McGregor hasn't shaved in a while and the beard is nothing more than the byproduct of unkempt facial hair...but where's the fun in that?

Ever since the concept of the spin-off Star Wars films was introduced with prequels Rogue One and Solo: A Star Wars Story, fans have been itching for just one thing - a film following the adventures of legendary Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, perhaps during his years guarding young Luke Skywalker on the desert planet Tatooine.

"I would be happy to play him again but I don't know anything more than you do", McGregor said (via Yvonne Villarreal of the Los Angeles Times). There's also a new trilogy from "The Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson in the works. I saw the new one over Christmas and I thought it was really, really attractive, I loved it.
