Could Frank Oz and Ewan McGregor Be Returning to Star Wars? We Think So...

    Variety recently caught up with Star Wars veteran puppet master and voice talent Frank Oz  to question him about his possible involvement in future Star Wars projects. When asked directly, Oz expressed that he has been asked not to talk about it, which in itself is a possible hint of his involvement.  Meanwhile, in another corner of the galaxy, Obi-Wan Kenobi himself (Ewan McGregor), who is usually enthusiastic about Star Wars, also refused to answer any questions about his involvement in the franchise when questioned multiple times about it in a recent Reddit AMA session.  Could the tight-lipped response of the two Star Wars alums be a hint to their involvement in the franchise moving forward?







    From Variety:

    As you can see Oz definitely knows something that he can't share. As you probably remember, back in February 2016, Entertainment Tonight interviewed Maryann Brandon and Mary Jo Markey, the editors of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, who confirmed that Frank Oz reprized his role as Yoda for a cameo, but was ultimately cut from the film.

    We really hope this won't be the case again for The Last Jedi, and we hope the rumors are true that members of the original Yoda team have been called in to work on Episode VIII, and that we will actually see Yoda in the movie as a Force Ghost.





    Also Frank Oz briefly spoke about Rogue One and The Force Awakens.

    In another unrelated story, actor Ewan McGregor remained surprisingly mum regarding Star Wars during his recent Reddit Ask Me Anything exchange. Ewan was answering questions about his new movie Trainspotting 2. He was asked numerous times about Star Wars and especially if he knows anything about an upcoming Obi-Wan spin-off movie. The actor didn't reply to a single Star Wars question, which seemed a bit strange, having in mind that in the last couple of months he always expressed his opinion when asked about Star Wars and shared his excitement for a potential future movie and his return to the galaxy far, far away.



    Of course we could be reading too much into this. After all, this AMA was about Trainspotting. But with the increasing amount of rumors about an upcoming Obi-Wan spin-off movie, one can only wonder if there is something more than meets the eye here. For what it's worth, we recently heard from a source that things are starting to get in motion for the third Star Wars spin-off film. People are being called an so on. When we have more info on that we will let you know. Until then this movie is still a mystery.

    Ewan doing the performance capture and voice for a digital Alec Guinness force ghost? I doubt it. It could be done but I don't think they would. A Kenobi standalone movie is interesting but I'm afraid they are cramming too much stuff into that period between RotS and ANH--specifically force users. It is already hard enough for me to accept the idea that Alec Guinness fought a cyborg Maul on Tatooine not long before ANH. I'm sure they would think they need to invent some dark side inquisitor character who Kenobi has to fight in a standalone film. Hopefully they would be more creative. I mean...I'll watch it. And buy the BluRay. And watch it 10-20 times. And talk about it. And recommend it to others. But I don't want it!! lol

    I'm all for some more of everyone's favorite little green toad man. And I was happy to hear Frank Oz can still do the aged and raspy sounding Yoda we saw in the OT when we saw him in Rebels. I wonder, will they re-purpose whatever Yoda stuff they filmed or recorded for TFA for use in TLJ?

    Would they dare bring back Hayden Christensen? He was there too... at the end of ROTJ. Kylo was asking Vader to talk to him in TFA. Gotta figure that is something he previously did with his grandfather.

    Would they consider casting a new actor to play Anakin?

    I dont think so.

    Hayden ist Anakin and his appearance at the end of RotJ is Canon.
    If they bring him back, and trust me they will, it will be Hayden.

    ;)

    I think he was there for Trainspotting 2 and didn't want to over shadow that with Star Wars questions. I hope I'm wrong because I would love him in TLJ and a standalone OB1 film.
