Ewan McGregor Returning As Obi-Wan Kenobi?

There’s been plenty of talk this week about Ian McDiarmid’s Emperor Palpatine returning as a ‘force ghost’ in the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode VII”.

The latest rumor today, from Latino Review is that Ewan McGregor will join him in a similar capacity – return as the ‘force ghost’ of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The current script by Michael Arndt reportedly includes a number of force ghosts who will be working with the human side of the battle.

Alec Guinness portrayed the Force Ghost version of Obi-Wan Kenobi in the original trilogy, so the question now is why would he suddenly appear as his younger self? Or will McGregor wear old age make-up to make him better resemble Guinness?
