McGregor previously played the character in the three Star Wars prequel films released from 1999 to 2005.
McGregor also had a brief voice-over as Kenobi in JJ Abrams-directed 2015 film "Force Awakens".
The report which originated from Cinelinx notedthat two separate sources told the site that the Trainspotting and Beauty and the Beast star had actually signed a contract to reprise his role as Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Released tanker raises Iranian flag, changes name to 'Adrian Darya-1'
The US claims the tanker is controlled by Iran's Revolutionary Guard, which is the target of its sanctions. Analysts had said the release of the Grace 1 by Gibraltar could see Britain's Stena Impero go free.
After that had been circulating for years, with writers and directors reportedly being hired then leaving the project, it seemed like anything with McGregor reprising his role as Obi-Wan was dead. McGregor did a great job portraying Obi-Wan Kenobi in the prequel series, and we have faith that Disney will do a great job expanding on Obi-Wan's story.
Adding to this news, the website FanthaTracks.com says that McGregor will not only be starring in the series, but directing a few of the episodes as well... Additionally, Disney+ has also greenlit the seventh season of the fan-favourite Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series. It stars Pedro Pascal and is spearheaded by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Lion King).
There is plenty to explore in the character's history during the almost two-decade period when Obi-Wan was in exile on Tatooine. These were bad numbers compared to other Star Wars titles that were easily passing $1 billion. We'll soon be seeing the actor in Doctor Sleep, the sequel to The Shining, the Birds of Prey film from Worlds of DC and the comedy The Cow by Marc Forster. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
