    It's good to know he will come back if they bring the character back. Considering Guinness is no longer with us I'd say Ewan is coming back at some point. Gotta have the Ob-Wan force ghost.

    Interesting but they have already established Kenobi's appearance as a ghost.

    Ever seen James Bond? Ewan has a very similar facial structure and ratios to Guiness, throw some make up on him and shoot him in the right way and they could pull it off.

    Guinness is dead so unless they are working voodoo on the set Ewan is their only option. Unless you want a cgi Guinness with someone doing his voice which would be incredibly weird.

    I'd be behind this 100%
    It's just a shame that we would be restricted to just seeing Obi Wan as a Force ghost.
    Or would we?...

    Maybe it's possible for a Jedi to cross over and come back to the physical world completely if they are desperately needed.

    What? It's nowhere near as bad as midi-chlorians... ;)

    I think if any EU is honored, it be the Thrawn Trilogy. In that, Obi is gone. That is a big if though.

    Hell yes.

    I feel like based on this comment alone, Michael Arndt needs to write in at least one force ghost Ben scene if he hasn't already.

    I heard Ewan hated the Star Wars movies he did, but seeing how he hasn't had much success since then, no wonder he wants to come back, lol.

    He hated the way they were shot. Maybe he hated the movies themselves, but he hasn't stated it anywhere, afaik.

    What do u consider success exactly? If u mean big blockbusters then yeah. But he's generally always done smaller independent type movies. I actually think his performances last few years have gotten him more critical acclaim (The Ghost Writer, Beginners, SFITY, The Impossible). If u look at his career the bockbusters seem to be well, Star Wars lol.

    He hated the green screen stuff as far as i know, not making the movies per se.

    Ewan is a big Star Wars fan. Remember his uncle played Wedge in the OT.

    Dennis LAwson, who does, in fact, hate the films quite a bit. Don't remember the exact reasons, but I know he doesn't even talk about his time in SW anymore.

    Dennis Lawson was lucky that he got to be included. Hell, why did he agree to reappear in the two sequels?
