Original Obi-Wan Kenobi Plot Was About Ben And Luke Confirms McGregor

Original Obi-Wan Kenobi Plot Was About Ben And Luke Confirms McGregor

The original Obi-Wan Kenobi plot was about Ben and Luke confirms star Ewan McGregor. McGregor was at FAN EXPO Boston on Sunday and ComicBook.com were in attendance. It was always known that at one point the Kenobi story was supposed to be the first of a movie trilogy. However plans, and scripts were eventually changed, quite radically in some places.

McGregor has now confirmed that the original plot was all about Ben and Luke.

“It was going to be a story about me and Luke. It was always going to be that, and that was one of the genius moments where everyone went, ‘Wait a minute,’ and then changed it.”

“That’s the beautiful thing about how passionate Disney, Lucasfilm, all of us are, who are involved with it is from the beginning is we try really hard not to let anything of the bad just to protect your experience of seeing it for the first time,” he added. “I think it’s really cool that Disney and Lucasfilm care so much for the fan experience. They really want you to have a 100% experience the first time you see it, and if you’ve read that, and that leaked, and this came out, it’s just a bit of a shame isn’t it? It’s like looking at your Christmas presents before Christmas Day.”

Prior to filming if you’d asked most fans what they thought Obi-Wan Kenobi would be about, I’m sure most would have said Ben and Luke on Tatooine. However once the news came out about Hayden Christensen returning (first revealed exclusively by LRM back in Spring, 2020) all that began to change.

One of the things I liked about Obi-Wan Kenobi is how Luke was really a background character. Whereas Leia’s was a co-starring role in the show. Now of course fans wonder what comes next? I’m not sure I’d want more Luke Skywalker than what we’ve already had.

What do you think of Ewan McGregor’s confirmation that the original Obi-Wan Kenobi plot was about Ben and Luke?  As always, lets us know below.
