Everything We Know About The New Obi-Wan Kenobi Series

It’s no surprise that we’ve been looking forward to seeing more of Ewan McGregor reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi Series on the big screen in Star Wars: Episode IX. However,

it seems like Obi-Wan will be back sooner than we thought – and on the small screen too! It was recently revealed that Disney+ has ordered an entire TV series centered around the Jedi Knight (which means he won’t just be making a quick cameo in the final installment of the Skywalker Saga). Check out everything we know about this exciting new project so far!

Why a series?

So what is Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series? The premise is based on the prequel-era character Obi-Wan Kenobi Series (Ewan McGregor) and details his origins, as well as his story between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Ewan McGregor will reprise his role in the series, along with being co-writer and executive producer.

When it comes to what audiences can expect from an Obi-Wan Kenobi series, we don’t know much, other than that it will be set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope (roughly five years), as well as feature Ewan McGregor. McGregor told Variety at the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago: He’s not your typical Jedi…For me,

I was interested in something that ended with Episode III and started with Episode IV. What does that mean for fans of prequel-era Jedi? Well, if you enjoyed Ewan McGregor in his portrayal of a young student (previously) eager to learn more about combat and defense strategies then there should be plenty to like here.

Who’s writing it?

We know Disney+ has ordered its first live-action series for its new streaming service, called The Mandalorian, and have been following the series’ development ever since. But now it looks like there’s another Star Wars series coming our way – Disney announced yesterday that Obi-Wan Kenobi Series will be joining the mix. Here’s everything we know so far:

1) We can expect a show that premieres sometime in 2020. If you follow Star Wars news, you’ll know this is when they’re releasing the next two movies in the saga: Episode IX and Rogue One spinoff Cassian Andor’s Story. So we’d say 2020 is likely to be on the date of either one of those movies, or possibly even later in the year – after Episode IX airs.

When will it start filming?

Filming for the Obi-Wan series will begin in 2020, just after filming for Star Wars: Episode IX is complete. The release date and location of the film are unknown, but it is speculated to be released by 2020.

This marks an incredibly pivotal moment in the Star Wars timeline as we prepare to see Kenobi’s death unfold onscreen for the first time and feel his final moments among friends and family that have affected him greatly throughout his life.

Is Ewan McGregor involved?

Ewan McGregor is not slated to take part in the project. Instead, he will reportedly serve as a creative consultant on the show’s production. The series will star Stephen David- who has previously written for two of Lucasfilm’s television projects- and Joe Tracz, best known for writing for The Originals and Vikings.

Luke Youngblood- who you may remember from The Lego Movie 2- will be handling directing duties on the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. Reports have indicated that Samuel J. Elkins Jr., who produced Pretty Little Liars and This Is Us among other projects, is set to produce the new TV show. He won an Emmy Award in 2004 and has been nominated a total of ten times throughout his illustrious career.

Anything else we should know?

The world has been eagerly awaiting more Obi-Wan Kenobi Series content ever since Disney acquired Lucasfilm and made it clear that the character would be coming back. What we do know about the upcoming series is that it’s set in the prequel era, which means we won’t be seeing the original trio of Anakin Skywalker,

Obi-Wan Kenobi Series and Padme Amidala. Instead, we will see what life is like when Obi-Wan is a twentysomething Jedi Master living with his mentor on Tatooine. We will also see an older Ben Kenobi training Luke Skywalker as he grows up, which should make for a powerful dynamic between these two very different characters.
