While it is not yet known when the Obi-Wan Kenobi series will arrive on Disney+, Star Wars fans are surely pumped to see Ewan McGregor reprise his role. Well, they’re already excited about the show in the first place, but after his appearance at the recent Golden Globes, fans really can’t wait to see the actor’s return.
McGregor presented an award with Birds of Prey co-star Margot Robbie. He was sporting a longer hairdo, which fans thought is something very similar to his Star Wars character’s hairstyle. After seeing the actor on the awards show, some people immediately went to Twitter to share their excitement, and even most of them are convinced that he's growing it out for the show. You can check out some of their reactions below.

And while McGregor could just be growing a longer hairdo as a personal preference, it could be a possibility that he’s getting ready early for the show considering that the production date starts in the summer of this year. Regardless of it being for the show or not, most people think he definitely suits this hairstyle.
The Obi-Wan Kenobi series is yet to have a title, but the show will be set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. The story is said to show how Kenobi will process the events following the destruction of the Jedi Order. In addition, the series is reportedly casting for a young Luke and Leia.
A release date for the show is yet to be announced, but in the meantime, you could check out Star Wars: The Mandalorian which is available to stream on Disney+.
