Ewan McGregor is training and getting in shape for the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars series coming to Disney Plus.

Tony Horton, dubbed "the most influential man in health and fitness," posted the following image of Ewan McGregor showing off the big guns.

"It seems that this Scottish fellow is starting to lean up and slim down. He hasn’t missed a day, and his diet has been spot on. This was day 16," Horton posted on Instagram.

Ewan McGregor returns to the role of Obi-Wan which comes sixteen years after the release of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.

Obi-Wan films soon

The Obi-Wan series looks to start production this Spring and film in Los Angeles.

Recently released details include that Hayden Christensen will be returning as Darth Vader and will have a battle against McGregor.

"The most beautiful thing of all is that it’s brought me back together with Hayden,” said McGregor in a video shown off at the Disney Investor Day event adding there will be “another swing at each other” before the end of the series.

Series director Deborah Chow also described the show as, “Just being a Jedi, it’s not safe.”

Via StarWars.com:

Last August at D23 Expo, Lucasfilm announced the return of Ewan McGregor in the iconic role of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi for a special event series on Disney+. Officially titled Obi-Wan Kenobi, the series begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where he faced his greatest defeat, the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader. The series is directed by Deborah Chow, who helmed memorable episodes of The Mandalorian Season 1.

This will truly be a day long remembered, as it was confirmed that Hayden Christensen will be returning as Darth Vader. “This will be the rematch of the century,” Kennedy said.

“It was such an incredible journey playing Anakin Skywalker,” said Christensen. “Of course, Anakin and Obi-Wan weren’t on the greatest of terms when we last saw them… It will be interesting to see what an amazing director like Deborah Chow has in store for us all. I’m excited to work with Ewan again. It feels good to be back.”
