Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen Want Obi-Wan Kenobi Season 2 – IGN
Warning: This article contains spoilers for Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Obi-Wan Kenobi stars Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen are open to the idea of continuing their characters’ stories for a second season of the Disney+ Star Wars series.
Speaking with British GQ, McGregor reflected on returning to his Star Wars role for the first time in 17 years on the set of Obi-Wan Kenobi alongside Christensen. He also indicated that he would don the Jedi robes again if the opportunity arose. “I really hope we do another,” he said. “If I could do one of these every now and again — I’d just be happy about it.”
McGregor also mentioned what it was like to reunite with his Star Wars prequel trilogy co-star after all of this time, and how he felt in his first scene with Christensen suited up as Sith Lord Darth Vader. “I got a jolt of fear that made me six years old again,” he admitted. “I’ve never experienced that before. I just about crapped my pants.”
It seems that Christensen isn’t quite ready to hang up his helmet either. Speaking to RadioTimes, the actor expressed his desire to reprise his Star Wars role for a second season of Obi-Wan Kenobi or another project that involves his character, noting that Lucasfilm billed Obi-Wan as a six-part limited series but there may be more stories to tell yet.
“Well, it was definitely conceived as a standalone story. But I would love to continue with this character. You know, I think there’s certainly more there to explore and I would be so excited to get to do so,” he told the outlet, adding that if there was a second season of Obi-Wan Kenobi, he “would certainly be open to” returning for more episodes.
The sixth and final part of Obi-Wan Kenobi dropped on Disney+ on June 22, and it featured a major Star Wars cameo that is sure to get viewers talking. IGN scored the episode a 9 out of 10, calling it “a near-essential piece of Star Wars viewing” that “elegantly ties a bow on the stories it began, while enhancing the ones that are yet to come.”
