Another Rumor for Obi-Wan Returning in Star Wars: Episode7.

This one comes again from Latino Review. It sounds more like a logical thinking instead of a real rumor. Still check it out…

From Latino Review:

Obi-Wan Kenobi appeared throughout the original trilogy, despite his death in ‘A New Hope’. I have confirmed this with three close sources that are on the project and they all confirmed to me that Ewan McGregor would be back as a Force Ghost in the upcoming sequel trilogy. 

Then again there was quite a controversial change to a scene at the end of “Return of the Jedi,” when the spirits of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and Anakin Skywalker look upon the Rebels’ celebration. The original actor who played Anakin in this scene (Sebastian Shaw) was replaced by Hayden Christensen, the actor who played Anakin in Episodes II and III.
Will Ewan McGregor be made up to look old like Sir Alec Guinness? 

But that is not all! Check this out! The interesting part of the conversation I had with my source was that McGregor also wants a solo standalone film!

This sounds more like the site is trying to recover from yesterday’s announcement that they will have a major scoop for Episode 7. Later they revealed that the source from England wanted to postpone the scoop for this morning. Obviously things didn’t go as planned and we are getting this somehow logical possibility for the upcoming movie.

    Well I’m torn. I love Ewan… but I wont lie. I hate the prequels. If better writing and… well everything were involved he could be a great part of Star Wars.

    There are still the stand alone movies planned. Obi-Wan wouldn’t be a bad choice for that. Like I said before though… only if they are actually well thought out/executed.

    stand alone movies should be for darth vader, darth maul and yoda!

    These rumors are fake in my opinion. I mean some site want more people to read them and create all these news.

    In star wars 7 should be best iconic characters OR all new characters. If old then use darth vader yoda and chewbacca!

    They should use Alec Guinness, I know he’s been dead for years but they could just CGI his face onto another actor and use an impersonator to dub the dialogue.
    They CGI’d Christopher Lee’s face onto a double for the fight scenes in Episode II and III, so it can be done.
    They could simply use existing footage of Alec Guinness from the original movies and CGI his lip movements to new dialogue. Easy.

    As lackluster as the prequels were, Ewan made a fantastic Obi-Wan. And 6 years olds love the prequels. I would love to see a stand alone Obi-Wan movie.

    I don’t know how I feel about his Force ghost in episode vii though. how would it work? It seems like there’s several choices here.

    First, have Ewan play Obi-Wan’s Force ghost. This would be weird, considering that Alec Guiness played the force ghost in episode v and vi. How would you explain the force ghost going from old to young?

    It seems to me that if they go this route, they’d have to go back into episode v and vi and take out the Alec Guiness force ghost, and replace it with a Ewan McGregor force ghost. This would be congruent with the change from the old Anakin force ghost with the Hayden Christiansen force ghost.

    I think the better option is the one mentioned above, to take maybe cut footage of Alec Guinness from the original trilogy, and digitally replace the mouth. Maybe have Ewan do his best Alec Guiness for the dialogue?

    I any case, I’m not sure what I think about all these Force ghosts. how many will there be? We have potentially Palpatine and Obi-Wan returning as Force ghosts. So what’s stopping every jedi that ever died from coming back into episode vii-ix?

    Will Yoda return as a force ghost? He was a force ghost at the end of episode vi after all, as was Anakin. Will Anakin return as a Force ghost? Will Qui-Gon? Mace Windu? Darth Maul? Count Dookoo? General Grievous? Every Jedi that was slaughtered by Order 66?

    • August 18, 2013 at 1:12 am

      Grievous did not know the force he couldn’t return

    • August 18, 2013 at 8:22 pm

      I thought he was a Sith.

    • August 19, 2013 at 2:16 am

      nah i think lord tyrannous(dooku) was the 2nd sith

      greivous was just a Seperatist Leader

      please correct if wrong,

    • August 19, 2013 at 10:49 am

      Greivous was half alien half machine Trained by dooku but he wasnt a sith.

  • August 18, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    I liked the prequels,
    ofcourse the’re not so good as Episode IV to VI.
    But people & fans expected too much from those IMO.

    A standalone film about Obi-Wan would need a very strong story and some stuff we didn’t know yet.
    Maybe something out of the EU where we can read some good stories with Obi-Wan in it.

    But all future projects rely a bit on the succes of Episode VII if you ask me…

  • August 19, 2013 at 10:46 am

    I think they could use cgi to use alec Guinnesses face or they could use ewan mgregger and just make him look even older

    • August 19, 2013 at 5:39 pm

      Making Ewen look old. the most obvious..
      CGI face of Guinness is retarded idea….

  • August 20, 2013 at 12:43 pm

    I think Ewan McGregor made an excelent job, but Sir Alec Guinness CANNOT BE ERASED from final scene of Return of the Jedi.

  • August 20, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    Obi-Wan stand alone movie? really, if anything, it would be when he first becomes a Padawan under Qui-Gon. What else can you do with him? His life story from graduating as a Padawan has been told! He was in all 6 Movies, in the Clone Wars Movie, CW micro-series and 5 seasons of full out series. Star Wars: Rebels (new show between Ep 3-4) will show more of him biding his time on Tatooine….and he dies…there is really no stone in his story left unturned.
    And that goes 10-fold for Anikan/Vader…everything thus far has been nothing BUT Annikan/Vader!
    Yoda movie: yes…not much known about his past. Same with Bobba Fett. A Han/Chewy/Lando adventure would explain the great chemistry between them
    In Episode 7, if you have Ewan look as close to Sir Alec as possible (which shouldn’t be hard), I can’t imagine any SW fan being bent out of shape

    This state-of-the-art hair transplant technique is the most effective and undetectable method there is,
    and is arguably the most cost-effective, as well, with the only
    recurring cost will being more frequent visits to the barber.
    The hair loss is usually limited to a coin sized area and all
    the hair in the area is lost leaving a totally smooth round
    patch. In a world of increasing stress, it has become
    more common in both men and women.
