Why Ewan McGregor’s Uncle Told Him Not to Play Obi-Wan Kenobi

It wasn’t long before Ewan McGregor became one of the most popular actors in the world war of stars Universe. He first fought battle droids and droidekas alongside Liam Neeson’s Qui-Gon Jinn The Phantom Menace. Then he perfectly delivered the line: “You were right about one thing, Master. Negotiations were brief,” which said some of the humor McGregor would bring to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi. The Disney+ series Obi Wan Kenobi gives him a chance to reprise the iconic role, but McGregor’s uncle years ago advised him not to take on the role. Here’s why.
