After almost 20 years, Ewan McGregor is ready to use the force once more.

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the actor is in talks with Disney to not only join a TV series for their streaming service Disney+ but to reprise his role as Obi Wan Kenobi for a Star Wars show revolving around him.

It had previously been announced that a spin-off movie based on the Jedi was in the works as well but it looks like that may have just translated into this show.

So far, the actor has not confirmed nor denied his participation but has mentioned on numerous occasions that he wouldn't mind taking up the mantle. We're choosing to believe this is happening.

Ewan McGregor starred as a young Obi Wan in the prequel trilogy for Star Wars, which showed the origins of Darth Vader. While the prequels have had their fair share of criticism, McGregor's work was well-received, probably because he had the higher ground.

There is no release date for the spin-off series as of yet.
