STAR WARS: Alden Ehrenreich, Ewan McGregor, And Daisy Ridley All Address Their Potential Franchise Returns

Star Wars actors Alden Ehrenreich, Ewan McGregor, and Daisy Ridley have all been asked about their respective futures with the franchise, and they each seem keen to head back into this Galaxy Far, Far Away!

When a popular actor joins an iconic franchise, it's pretty standard for them to then spend their entire careers being asked about a potential return.

Ewan McGregor fielded questions about his beloved Jedi Master for well over 15 years before Obi-Wan Kenobi became a reality on Disney+, but he's once again shared an interest in heading back to that Galaxy Far, Far Away. The actor seemed to have a blast making the TV series and, when it was released, suggested on a number of occasions he would like to tell more stories.

Talking to the Disney Studio Awards team alongside Darth Vader actor Hayden Christensen, McGregor weighed in on how he'd feel about a potential season 2. 

"I was so happy to do it again, and so happy to work with Hayden again, and I hope we get the chance to do it again," he teased. "In the old days, I would joke about, ‘There must be a good story to tell between 'Episode III' and 'VI'.’ But, it’s true. I always felt that there was. I feel like Deborah Chow found it and absolutely nailed it."

Funnily enough, old Ben isn't the only one currently tackling questions about their Star Wars future. Solo: A Star Wars Story's Alden Ehrenreich, who played a young Han Solo in place of Harrison Ford, was recently quizzed by IndieWire on whether he still hopes to play the iconic smugger again. 

"The story that I did, I really got to be Han Solo at the end. That’s kind of the arc of the story, which I thought was well done. That’s the fun part," he says. "That’s the guy that’s the most fun to be. I’d be very happy to, but who knows."

Fans continue to campaign for Lucasfilm to #MakeSolo2Happen, but with no movement on that or the seemingly scrapped Lando TV series starring Donald Glover, we're not sure where Ehrenreich could actually show up. The studio has also started making use of clever VFX to de-age actors, so it seems far more likely that, if Han does return, Ford will play him again. 

Moving further ahead in the Star Wars timeline, we've also received an update from Daisy Ridley on the odds of coming back as Rey Skywalker. Upcoming movies are thought to be set post-The Rise of Skywalker, so there's definitely a chance it could happen.

"I mean, I’m open to a phone call," she told IMDb"I’m looking for employment!"

It seems they all are, as Ridley, Ehrenreich, and McGregor are all clearly willing to work on a future Star Wars project. We're not sure which of them stands the best shot of doing so, but if Lucasfilm isn't at least seriously considering Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 plans, we don't know what to think!
