According to a new report, Ewan McGregor is going to reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars 9. Last week was a big one in terms of news surrounding the Obi-Wan movie that Lucasfilm has in development. It was first announced that the studio had put all of the upcoming Star Wars anthology films aside for the time being, which included the Obi-Wan film. Lucasfilm later debunked the rumor, but there are still reports that director Stephen Daldry has exited the project, which means that it's back to the drawing board. Star Wars fans were excited about the idea of a possible return of Ewan McGregor to the franchise, even though he had never been confirmed for the role. The Sun U.K. is now reporting that McGregor will secretly film scenes for the upcoming J.J. Abrams-directed Star Wars 9. If proven true, this would be massive news for fans, especially since there have also been rumors of the return of Billy Dee Williams as Lando joining the cast. However, it should be noted that this … [Read more...] about Ewan McGregor to Return as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars 9?
Star wars 9 release date
With filming expected to begin next month on Star Wars 9, fans are eager for any information regarding this sequel, and a new report, while unconfirmed, may reveal details about the opening scene. While no Star Wars rumors are ever confirmed by the studio before, during and after production, some have turned out to be true, although they're all to be taken with a grain of salt. In the absence of any confirmed plot details, which LucasFilm rarely releases, rumors are all we're left with. There may be potential spoilers below regarding the opening scenes of Star Wars 9, so read on at your own risk. This report from Cinema Blend claims the opening scene will feature the funeral of General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher), which makes sense from one perspective, since Fisher tragically passed away in December 2016 after filming The Last Jedi. Back in January 2017, LucasFilm made the rare move of actually responding to a press rumor that claimed the studio was considering using CGI technology to … [Read more...] about Star Wars 9 Opening Scene Revealed?
With production slated to begin next month on Star Wars 9, there is still very little anyone knows about the project, but Todd Fisher, the brother of late great Star Wars icon Carrie Fisher, hopes his sister's Leia character is still part of the story somehow. While promoting his new book My Girls: A Lifetime with Carrie and Debbie, Todd Fisher was asked if he knew anything about Leia making any sort of return in Star Wars 9. While LucasFilm hasn't informed him of their plans as of yet, he thinks Leia should actually return. Here's what he had to say. Yoda's return is far more conceivable than Leia's, since Frank Oz is still alive to provide the voice and work the re-created puppet as Yoda in The Last Jedi. Leia's return, however, seems all but unlikely, even though her character is still alive when The Last Jedi came to a close. Fisher passed away unexpectedly in December 2016, and just a few weeks later there had been rumors that LucasFilm would use technology to re-create Leia … [Read more...] about Carrie Fisher’s Brother Wants Leia to Return in Star Wars 9

On any given day, there are no shortage of Star Wars rumors, and one of the most recent ones to surface was that Meryl Streep may be eyed to replace the late great Carrie Fisher in Star Wars 9. That has never been confirmed, but it hasn't stopped others from asking about it, and during a new interview to promote the home video release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Mark Hamill was asked about the possibility of re-casting another actress to step in and play Leia in Star Wars 9, and here's what he had to say in response. The Star Wars icon does bring up a good point, about how prominent Han Solo was in The Force Awakens and how prominent Luke Skywalker was in The Last Jedi, before both characters were ultimately killed off in those respective movies. There had been rumors after Carrie Fisher passed away in December 2016 at age 60, that there were still some big moments the actress had left to film, including a confrontation with her son, Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), but those rumors were never … [Read more...] about Mark Hamill on Recasting Carrie Fisher in Star Wars 9: She’s Irreplaceable
