Obi-Wan Kenobi Spinoff Tweets Show Star Wars Fans Are Freaking Out Album

Disney is handing out Star Wars spinoffs these days like Oprah does cars, and fans couldn’t be happier.

After reports came Thursday that an Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff was in the works, Twitter quickly became the place for Star Wars fans to express their enthusiasm. Many fired off joyful messages, letting the studio know that yes, this project a great idea. In case there was any question, the fan base is definitely ready for another look at the late Jedi’s life.

Notably, some Star Wars fans’ excitement did come with one caveat: They want Ewan MacGregor back. The actor played the robed character in the prequel trilogy, taking on a role that Sir Alec Guiness filled in the original films. We don’t know yet if their dream will come true, as a script has not yet been written and therefore no actor is attached.

In the meantime, there is plenty of excitement on Twitter to bask in.

The MacGregor-supporting crowd made their voices heard, too.

An Obi-Wan movie is happening? Get Ewan on board, or might as well start the hashtag #NotMyKenobi right now.

If they don’t cast Ewan McGregor for the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie, I will be so mad. And honestly, I might cry a little.

Like, there is no possible way that this Obi-Wan movie does NOT have Ewan McGregor – right?

Happy as most people tweeting about the news are, some did have complaints — just not enough to drown out the cheers.
