Since original Obi-Wan Sir Alec Guinness is no longer with us, the though of Obi-Wan as a force ghost in Star Wars Episode VII was lost. However, Latino Review is confirming that Ewan McGregor will be returning to the roll of Obi-Wan as the force ghost, along side a ghost of Emperor Palpatine. We’re still unsure how much he will be made up to resemble Guinness, if at all, as of yet. On top of this, McGregor is wanting to do a solo movie focusing on Obi-Wan Kenobi at some point.
Lucasfilm sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of “The Lawless” the brand new episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars that airs this weekend.

Timed to celebrate the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo, StarWars.com will feature streaming Spanish-language episodes from the popular animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Produced by Lucasfilm Animation and originally airing on Cartoon Network, the weekly series has previously been unavailable online in alternate languages. Five episodes of the hit TV series â€“ Ambush, Trespass, Dooku Captured, The Gungan General and Hostage Crisis â€“ will be available on www.StarWars.com from May 1 through May 7.
Also to commemorate the holiday â€“ which celebrates the Mexican armyâ€™s 1862 defeat of invading French forces â€“ StarWars.com will feature an assortment of related content highlighting the Mexican Star Wars fan experience, as well as kid-friendly cultural activities, crafts, Spanish-language multimedia and more.
â€œWe thought it would be a fun experiment to bring the Spanish-language version of The Clone Wars to our online audience in celebration of Cinco de Mayo.â€ said Bill Gannon, Director of Online Operations for Lucasfilm. â€œTo quote Obi-Wan Kenobi, we are taking our first step into a larger world.â€
In addition to the holiday-themed activities of StarWars.com, Star Wars: The Clone Wars will also be available for viewers to re-experience on TV, as well. Beginning May 1, Cartoon Network will premiere Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Decoded, a full slate of 22 enhanced episodes from the seriesâ€™ first season.Â Using text windows to provide in-the-moment insights into all aspects of the sweeping galactic conflictâ€”from trivia to background on characters and storylinesâ€”Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Decoded will unlock the secrets of the series and provide a unique look at a “galaxy far, far away.”
After spanning the galaxy, the conflict comes home in â€œInnocents of Ryloth,â€ an all-new episode of the hit animated series STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, premiering at 9 p.m. ET/PT Friday, March 6, on Cartoon Network.
The second in a three-part saga chronicling the liberation of a Separatist-held planet, â€œInnocents of Rylothâ€ looks at the civilians caught in the crossfire of the sweeping galactic conflict. When Obi-Wan Kenobi and his clones are sent to the surface to sabotage a powerful Separatist weapon, they encounter heavy resistance from the droid army â€“ but they also come face to face with the humanity of those that they are sent to protect. Seeing the â€œhumanâ€ side of the occupation helps to give the clones a new perspective on the war.
This weekend the Cartoon Network brings a Clone Wars Double Feature in the latest adventures of those in a galaxy far, far, away…
In â€œBlue Shadow Virus,â€ PadmÃ© Amidala is captured while searching for a secret Separatist bio-weapons lab run by Dr. Nuvo Vindi (portrayed by science-fiction icon Michael York), a scientist as cold and calculating as he is evil. While they manage to find the mad doctor and uncover his scheme, they are too late to prevent the release of his deadly concoction â€“ leaving Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi just 48 hours to find the elusive antidote in â€œMystery of A Thousand Moons.â€
I love the animation style, but some of the individual episodes have been hit and miss with me.Â This two-parter looks like a hit for me, and I know where I’ll be tonight.
