Disney Obi-Wan Kenobi star Ewan McGregor announced for Comic Con Scotland

Star Wars fans will have the chance to meet Hollywood icon and Obi-Wan Kenobi actor Ewan McGregor at Comic Con Scotland this October.

The announcement follows Ewan McGregor's return to the Star Wars universe, where he recently reprised his role as Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi in the highly anticipated Disney+ series of the same name.

Following the series launch, fans will now be able to meet the Obi-Wan Kenobi actor in person at Comic Con Scotland, which will be held at The Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh from October 8-9, 2022.

His appearance follows rave reviews from fans for the Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi series, which launched on the streaming service last week (May 27, 2022).

One fan took to social media to say say: "Obi-Wan Kenobi might be the best thing I've seen ever. Not exaggerating". While others praised Ewan's return to the role, after he played the character in Episodes I-III between 1999-2005.

A second fan also added: "Loved the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi. I cannot wait to see how the rest of the story unfolds."

Comic Con Scotland, which is organised by Monopoly Events, will also see the Doctor Sleep and Moulin Rouge actor joined by a whole host of big names from film and TV for the event.

The incredible line-up includes Clueless' Alicia Silverstone, Titanic's Billy Zane, Umbrella Academy's Tom Hopper, Scrubs' John C. McGinley, Reservoir Dogs' Michael Madsen and The Lost Boy's Jason Patric.

A number of stars from fantasy epics The Hobbit and The Lord Of the Rings will also be joining them throughout the weekend, including Graham McTavish, Adam Brown and John Rhys Davies.

That's not all, as Back To the Future fans can meet actors including Mr Strickland actor James Tolkan and original Jennifer actress Claudia Wells.

Fans of classic TV show Gladiators can also meet Jet, as well as The Lost Boys saxophonist Tim Capello and The Vampire Diaries stars Daniel Gillies, Charles Michael Davis and David Anders – as well as a number of voice actors throughout the weekend.

If you're looking for more Star Wars icons, the Comic Con Scotland social media has also teased that another announcement could be on the way, posting on their Twitter feed: "There is plenty of Star Wars to watch at the moment. Will there be anymore SW guest announcements for Scotland?"

Fans will have to wait and see.
