Since then, fans have been speculating about whether original prequel star Ewan McGregor may return to don the Jedi's robes.

"It's just that. There's a lot of talk", said McGregor.

McGregor played Obi-Wan in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in 1999.

And the new pic has led many to believe that Ewan might be getting ready to head back to the sci-fi franchise. There's also a new trilogy from "The Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson in the works.

He accompanied it with a humorous artwork of a sketch showing Carrie, who passed away suddenly previous year, in robes and a crown, carrying a French bulldog in one hand as she stuck up the middle finger of the other. There were reports in August that Stephen Daldry was in early talks to direct. Rumors started again after a post on social media revealed McGregor training with a familiar beard. This further points to a 2020 release date for the movie.

Backstage, McGregor, who was named Best Actor for his role on "Fargo", was asked about the possibility of reprising his iconic role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the new series of "Star Wars" films. Given the resurgence of the Star Wars franchise and Lucasfilm's plans to branch out well beyond the Skywalker saga with their solo films, the idea of a movie centered on a beloved character like Obi-Wan is a welcome thought for many. Disney already has "Solo: A Star Wars Story" on the docket for May, and Episode IX hits theaters in 2019.

The first interviewer asked him about the current status of the oft-rumored Obi-Wan movie and his wishes to be involved in the project, should it come to life.
