While clearly excited as a fan to see the continuing live-action adventures of Obi-Wan Kenobi in the forthcoming Disney Plus series starring Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen, Ahmed Best confirmed that he isn’t a part of the show in any way, be it as Jar Jar Binks, Jedi Master Kelleran Beq or any other character.
Thanks for the love, but I will not be in this series. As much as I would’ve loved to be a part of it. But I’m ecstatic to see folks who I love dearly back together doing great things. https://t.co/5bzLq9yslh

While described as a special event series, we’re still a decade away from the events of A New Hope so if, as expected, the Kenobi series is a smash then a handful of years down the line we could well see McGregor return in another ‘special event’ series of Kenobi adventures. Maybe that’s where we see an older, wiser Jar Jar in some capacity?
