Star Wars icon Ewan McGregor spoted his classic Obi-Wan Kenobi hairstyle during his appearance at the 2020 Golden Globes.
With the first season of The Mandalorian now complete, many Star Wars fans are turning their attention to the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series with Ewan McGregor. Although official details on the series are being kept under lock and key, it is believed to center on Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi during his time in exile after the Jedi Purge.
With production on the Obi-Wan Kenobi series scheduled to begin in the summer of 2020, fans suspected the long hair Ewan McGregor sported during the 2020 Golden Globe Awards was for the highly-anticipated Star Wars series. Of course, Ewan McGregor may simply have grown out his hair for personal reasons, but the fact that Obi-Wan Kenobi had longer hair for Star Wars: Episode III – Attack of the Clones has some fans thinking otherwise.
