- "What Episode I star has been called 'the biggest thing out of Scotland since argyle socks'?"
- ―An Episode I preview question from Star Wars Trivial Pursuit indicating Ewan McGregor
- "George Lucas wanted to do something very different with the prequels. That's why people felt cheated. It was upsetting when people would laugh and joke about it. Now, many years later, the prequels meant a lot to the generation that were kids then. So from smirking, cynical opinions, now I'm getting feedback from the kids they were made for. I'm really happy about that."
- ―Ewan McGregor on the prequel trilogy
Since the news about the sequel trilogy was announced, he expressed interest in coming back to the series if asked to. He made a brief audio appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens as Kenobi's voice calling out to Rey Skywalker in her Force-induced visions.
On August 23, 2019, it was announced at D23 that McGregor would be reprising his role as Kenobi in Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi on the Disney+ streaming service. The series will be set eight years after the events of Revenge of the Sith and will begin filming in 2020. The production has been put on hold for a time, because of last-minute changes to the script.[source?]
