We are not joking, Ewan McGregor is officially returning as Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and we are screaming at the top of our voice. Sorry for the excitement but can you blame us? Walt Disney took to the D23 Expo stage to confirm that the Jedi returns for a Star Wars series that will stream on their online streaming platform, Disney + (Disney Plus). The actor made a special appearance on the first day of D23 Expo, sans the rob but looking super hot in the tux, as Disney announced his return. 

Kathleen Kennedy, the president of LucasFilms, took the centre stage to confirm the show and Ewan's return. The crowd went bonkers as the actor made his way to the stage and joined Kennedy. Wasting no time, the two got down to business and discussed the show. "Can you please ask me if I’m going to play Obi-Wan again?" asked McGregor. 

"Ewan, are you going to play Obi-Wan Kenobi again?" Kennedy asked him. "Yes," he simply replied, sending the crowd in a meltdown. While the details about the show are still under the wraps, Kennedy confirmed, "the scripts are written, and we begin shooting next year. We can't wait to start production. And we have our Obi-Wan."

For four years, McGregor has been denying questions regarding reprising the young Obi-Wan which he played in the Star Wars prequels The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. This confirmation finally brings a huge cheer among Star Wars fans. 

If this isn't a great start to D23, we don't know what is. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates.
