I found it strangely amusing that the two movies I’m waiting for now have a common link–Ewan McGregor. Star Wars aficionados, of course, know him as the young Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels, and he now has been cast as Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast. He’s not whom I would have picked for that part, but the nerd in me is just happy that Obi-Wan is going to be in the movie.
There was a rumor at one point that McGregor would be reprising the role of Obi-Wan in The Force Awakens, presumably the Force-ghost Obi-Wan, but unfortunately it looks to be just that–a rumor. Still, I find it pretty cool that the two movies I’ve been blogging about recently now have something in common.
