Ewan McGregor & Hayden Christensen want a second season of the Disney+ Series
In a recent interview with British GQ, Ewan McGregor discussed the series, and when the topic turned to whether or not he will reprise his part for another season, the actor shared his thoughts as follows: “I really hope we do another. If I could do one of these every now and again – I’d just be happy about it.”
Christensen has also indicated interest in continuing his role as Darth Vader for a subsequent season or perhaps for his own spinoff series, should the opportunity present itself. Christensen made these statements during an interview: “Well, it was definitely conceived as a standalone story. But I would love to continue with this character. You know, I think there’s certainly more there to explore and I would be so excited to get to do so.”
While Obi-Wan Kenobi opened with a great response from reviewers, garnering an 84 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (now resting at 75 percent since its premiere), the first reaction from fans seemed to be more split than positive. Some viewers were dissatisfied with the speed, while others took a more personal approach by criticizing certain cast members. The wind appeared to shift as we got closer and closer to the conclusion of the story. Fans gave the final two episodes of the show, which brought an end to its limited run, a very positive reaction, and it would appear that the show was successful in most aspects in terms of its landing. Even McGregor admitted that he was blown away by the level of fear that he was able to generate this time around. I know that Twitter was going crazy about the intimidating nature of Christensen’s Darth Vader, and I also know that Twitter was going crazy about how imposing Christensen’s Darth Vader was.
I say that a second season should be produced if it is both possible to tell the tale and logical for it to be told. If these two performers are willing to come back, I’m sure a narrative could be written that would make another run of Star Wars worthy of fan support. Star Wars appears to be doing well on the home streaming platform.
