Lucasfilm has been considering a possible "Star Wars" spin-off movie about Obi-Wan Kenobi for a few years now, but many "Star Wars" fans, especially the purist, nostalgic kind, want Ewan McGregor to return and don the Jedi’s robes. I don't blame them because McGregor was inspired casting in the prequels and did right to the legend of Kenobi.

After winning The Golden Globe on Sunday night, for his excellent dual performance in "Fargo," McGregor stated that, despite not knowing anything about LucasFilm's plans for a potential spin-off,  he’d return in a heartbeat as Obi-Wan.

“There’s a lot of talk,” McGregor told reporters backstage. “I’d be happy to play him again. But I don’t know any more about it than you do. There’s no plan at the moment.”

McGregor did add that he liked "Star Wars: The Last Jedi “I saw the new one just over Christmas, and I thought it was really, really beautiful,” he said. “I loved it.

Stephen Daldry is rumored to direct the spinoff, which would take place between "Revenge of the Sith" and the original 1977 "Star Wars."
