A Change.com petition with over 19,000 signatures is asking for an Obi-Wan Kenobi statue on the highest peak of Scotland. Kenobi’s Ewan McGregor was born in Scotland and is highly regarded by his countrymen. To honor him, they want to put a Kenobi statue at the highest peak on Ben Nevis in reference to his “high ground” moment in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. A plaque on the statue will read “Hello There” as a greeting to climbers and a testament to Kenobi’s long meme life.
The petition states “Ewan McGregor is a phenomenal actor and is considered one of Scotland’s best. Appearing in countless films for over two decades, Ewan has an impressive filmography. With his most iconic role being that of Obi-Wan Kenobi from George Lucas’ Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. Regardless of what you think of the Prequel Trilogy, most people will say that Obi-Wan was done brilliantly. He made Obi-Wan Kenobi the popular character he is today. And I think he deserves something for it.”
