Los Angeles - Ewan McGregor is "still waiting" to be asked to return to the Star Wars franchise.The 43-year-old actor portrayed the young Obi-Wan Kenobi in prequel trilogy Episodes I to III - which were released between 1999 and 2005 - but he has not been asked to be a part of Episode VII: The Force Awakens and doesn't even know whether it would be a possibility.He admitted: "I'm still waiting for the call! Seriously... But literally, I have had nothing. Nothing."And I don't even know how it could work, because I don't know what those stories are."I never discussed them with George [Lucas] when we made ours, so I have no idea what the three storylines are."And Ewan appeared to further talk himself out of a job when he admitted his return would affect continuity because Sir Alec Guinness played Kenobi in the original trilogy.He added to MTV News: "I suppose, after my last one, after Episode III, I become Alec Guinness, and then Alec Guinness is cut down by Lord Vader, and goes into [The Force]."But then, if he came back from there wouldn't he be Alec Guinness? Why would he suddenly be me? I'm talking myself out of a job here, which is a silly idea."
